  2. 2. Continuity and Change : Essays on path-dependence in economic geography and good food

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Pepijn Olders; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; path dependence; continuity; change; expert opinion; economic geography; restaurants; low-emission vehicles; PDO PGI labels;

    Abstract : How can it be, that in our rapidly changing world certain things remain recognisably the same for such a long time? This dissertation is concerned with the economic geography of path-dependence and seeks to explain selected everyday examples of continuity and change. How can French restaurants and chefs be successful for decades despite changes in taste? Why are cars powered by fossil fuels still around while there are many novel and cleaner alternatives? What explains the re-invention of local food products in spite of the influx of many new products from around the world? These are the question this dissertation tries to explain as spatial expressions of ‘path-dependence’. READ MORE

  3. 3. Technology Dynamics in Multi-Technology Industries : Selection and Variety Creation through the Lens of Path Dependency and Path Generation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Ksenia Onufrey; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This thesis studies technological development in multi-technology industries, or industries characterized by co-existence of several technological alternatives that are used in the same or largely overlapping applications and markets. Although a lot of industries can be considered as multi-technological, they are understudied in the current research. READ MORE

  4. 4. Innovation for tackling grand challenges : Cleantech industry dynamics and regional context

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Hanna Martin; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016-11-02]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Economic Geography; Regional innovation systems; Regional innovation policy; Regional path development; Innovation system failures; Socio-technical transitions; Grand challenges; Cleantech; Transformative change; Sweden; economic geography; regional innovation systems; regional innovation policy; regional path development; innovation system failures; socio-technical transitions; grand challenges; cleantech; transformative chang; Sweden;

    Abstract : Grand challenges such as climate change put focus away from innovations and innovation policy as engines of economic growth towards fulfilling societal goals and sighting sustainable development. The literature on the geography of innovation has provided valuable insights on innovation activities of firms and industries and how they are positively influenced by co-location. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reinforcement Learning of Locomotion based on Central Pattern Generators

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Cai Li; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Locomotion learning for robotics is an interesting and challenging area in which the movement capabilities of animals have been deeply investigated and acquired knowledge has been transferred into modelling locomotion on robots. What modellers are required to understand is what structure can represent locomotor systems in different animals and how such animals develop various and dexterous locomotion capabilities. READ MORE
