  1. 1. Adoption of the Innovation System Concept in Sweden

    Author : Magnus Eklund; Lars Magnusson; Mats Larsson; Dan Bäcklund; Mats Benner; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; conceptual history; Quentin Skinner; innovation system concept; innovation thinking; VINNOVA; OECD; Sweden; research policy; research funding reform; Research 2000; sectoral research; university autonomy; industrial policy; industrial crisis; Economic history; Ekonomisk historia;

    Abstract : In 2001 Sweden founded the government agency of VINNOVA, named after the OECD-endorsed innovation system concept. Criticising the common assumption that countries are passive and uncritical recipients of the approaches promoted by the OECD, this dissertation tries to show that Swedish actors were in fact very active and strategic as they contributed to the national adoption of the concept.

  2. 2. Reconstructions of historical metal emissions and their dispersion in the environment

    Author : Mats Eklund; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : A material flow perspective has been applied in the study of the emission, immission and dispersion of heavy metals from three historical point sources in activity during the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, with the aim of assessing the duration of pollution. The companies studied are Lovers alumworks (1723-1840), Atvidaberg copperworks (1750-1900) and NIFE-Jungner in Fliseryd (1910-1974), all situated in south-eastern Sweden. READ MORE

  3. 3. Computational Medical Image Analysis : With a Focus on Real-Time fMRI and Non-Parametric Statistics

    Author : Anders Eklund; Hans Knutsson; Mats Andersson; Stephen LaConte; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : functional magnetic resonance imaging; brain computer interfaces; canonical correlation analysis; random permutation test; graphics processing unit;

    Abstract : Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a prime example of multi-disciplinary research. Without the beautiful physics of MRI, there wouldnot be any images to look at in the first place. To obtain images of goodquality, it is necessary to fully understand the concepts of the frequencydomain. READ MORE

  4. 4. Development and evaluation of a web application for stress management : Supporting behaviour change in persons with work related stress

    Author : Caroline Eklund; Anne Söderlund; Magnus Elfström; Mats Lekander; Mälardalens högskola; []

    Abstract : Stress is the most common reason for sick leave in Sweden. Stress can lead to health-related problems such as burnout syndrome, depression, sleep disorders, cardiovascular disease and pain. It is important to handle stress at an early stage before it could lead to health-related problems. The web enables to reach many persons at a low cost. READ MORE

  5. 5. Design of Rare Earth Free Permanent Magnet Generators
