    Abstract : A central problem for the healthcare sector today is how to manage change and improvements. In recent decades the county councils in Sweden have started various improvement initiatives and programs in order to improve their healthcare services. READ MORE

  2. 2. The social organization of energy efficiency in shipping: a practice-based study

    Author : Martin Viktorelius; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Activity theory; Energy efficiency; Energy consumption; Knowing-in-practice; Shipping; Practice theory; Practice based studies; Energy management; Work;

    Abstract : The central research question explored in this study is how energy efficiency is organized onboard large merchant ships. The dominant techno-economical approach within energy research and policy, in general, and shipping research and policy, in particular, is reviewed and criticized as being too limited for understanding the challenges and opportunities related to the organization and management of energy efficiency in shipping companies.

    Abstract : The shipping industry is currently facing a major challenge related to environmental sustainability and energy efficiency. New regulations and ambitious international goals that aim at mitigating carbon-based emissions with 50 %, demands on profitability, along with a growing awareness about the climate change, has prompted the maritime sector to increasingly focus on how to improve energy efficiency and reduce fuel consumption in ship operations.

  4. 4. Material matters in co-designing : formatting & staging with participating materials in co-design projects, events & situations

    Author : Mette Agger Eriksen; Tuuli Mattelmäki; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : Co-designing; broad views of materiality; interaction design; participatory design; co-creation; service design; performative perspectives; roles of non-human materials; co-design networks; projects; events and situations; material of the co-designer; staging and formatting co-designing; practice-based; participatory; yet interventionistic approach; programmatic and experimental approach; designerly way of theorizing and drawing together approach;

    Abstract : Material Matters in Co-designing Participation in design is broadening, and there is a movement away from designing to co-designing. They are related, but the little co- makes them different organizational and socio-material practices. READ MORE

  5. 5. Program Matters : From Drawing to Code

    Author : Pablo Miranda Carranza; Katja Grillner; Daniel Koch; Charlie Gulström Hughes; Molly Wright Steenson; KTH; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; program; algorithm; code; drawing; geometry; notation; score; literacy; writing systems; diagram; formalism; sequence; cybernetics; materiality; research programme; archeological; archive; discourse analysis; practice-based; artefact; bricolage; Architecture; Arkitektur;

    Abstract : Whether on paper, on site or mediating between both, means for reading and writing geometry have been central to architecture: the use of compasses and rulers, strings, pins, stakes or plumb-lines enabled the analysis and reproduction of congruent figures on different surfaces since antiquity, and from the renaissance onwards, the consistent planar representation of three-dimensional shapes by means of projective geometry. Tacitly through practice, or explicitly encoded in classical geometry, the operational syntaxes of drawing instruments, real or imaginary, have determined the geometric literacies regulating the production and instruction of architecture.
