Public Health Workforce Trust Measures: Comparative Analysis Of T1-T2 Measures Across Two Lhd’S And Organizational Responses To Economic Hard Times, William A. Mase 2009 Georgia Southern University

Public Health Workforce Trust Measures: Comparative Analysis Of T1-T2 Measures Across Two Lhd’S And Organizational Responses To Economic Hard Times, William A. Mase

William A. Mase

This public health workforce research initiative expands practice-based employee trust measurement in a time-one time-two (T1 – T2) quantitative design methodology. The initiative is an expansion of previously conducted research within the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Health Departments. Tailored workforce-based quality improvement (QI) initiatives were developed and implemented within the two local health departments (LHD’s). Workforce-based QI was a product of strategic initiatives defined by leadership of both health departments and informed by a critical review of the data collected in 2008. Analysis of additional independent variables and interaction terms were evaluated and are presented for supervisor/employee race concordance ...


Is The European Union Ready For Fdi From Emerging Markets?, Judith Clifton, Daniel Díaz-Fuentes 2009 Universidad de Cantabria

Is The European Union Ready For Fdi From Emerging Markets?, Judith Clifton, Daniel Díaz-Fuentes

Daniel Díaz-Fuentes

This chapter asks whether the European Union Member States are ready for inward Foreign Direct Investment from the Emerging Markets. It concludes that European Union Member States have relatively open Foreign Direct Investment regimes in the international context, and yet instances of protectionism have been apparent in the recent period. However, protectionism has occurred both vis-a-vis Foreign Direct Investment from the Global South as well as from within the European Union, particularly in the so-called 'strategic' industries.

Is There A Shift To ‘Active Nanostructures'?, Vrishali Subramanian, Alan L. Porter, Jan Youtie, Philip Shapira 2009 Georgia Institute of Technology

Is There A Shift To ‘Active Nanostructures'?, Vrishali Subramanian, Alan L. Porter, Jan Youtie, Philip Shapira

Jan Youtie

It has been suggested that an important transition in the long-run trajectory of nanotechnology discovery and application is a shift from passive to active nanostructures. Such a shift could present increased societal impacts and need new approaches for risk assessment. The National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Active Nanostructures and Nanosystems (ANN) grant solicitation defines an active nanostructure as “An active nanostructure changes or evolves its state during its operation.” Active nanostructures examples include nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS), nanomachines, self-healing materials, targeted drugs and chemicals, energy storage devices, and sensors. This paper considers two questions: (1) Is there a “shift” to active ...


The Innovation System And Innovation Policy In The United States, Philip Shapira, Jan Youtie 2009 University of Manchester; Georgia Institute of Technology

The Innovation System And Innovation Policy In The United States, Philip Shapira, Jan Youtie

Jan Youtie

The US has a highly decentralized and diverse innovation system, involving multiple actors, including branches of federal and state governments, public agencies, universi-ties, the private sector, and non-profit and intermediary organizations. The system combines a high-level of R&D (with basic research sponsored particularly by federal government agencies) and a strong orientation towards applications and the market. This chapter provides an overview of the US innovation system and policy including a discussion of the components and participants involved in the US innovation system and its trends in innovation governance. The focus of this chapter is primarily on innovation policies with ...

Regional Development And Interregional Collaboration In The Growth Of Nanotechnology Research In China, Li Tang, Philip Shapira 2009 Georgia Institute of Technology - Main Campus

Regional Development And Interregional Collaboration In The Growth Of Nanotechnology Research In China, Li Tang, Philip Shapira

Li Tang

China is becoming a leading nation in terms of its share of the world’s publications in the emerging nanotechnology domain. This paper demonstrates that the international rise of China’s position in nanotechnology has been underwritten by the emergence of a series of regional hubs of nanotechnology R&D activity within the country. We develop a unique database of Chinese nanotechnology articles covering the period 1990 to mid-2006 to identify the regional distribution of nanotechnology research in China. To build this database, a new approach was developed to clean and standardize the geographical allocation of Chinese publication records. We ...


Industria E Innovazione, Il Ritorno Delle Politiche, Mario Pianta 2009 Università degli Studi di Urbino Carlo Bo

Industria E Innovazione, Il Ritorno Delle Politiche, Mario Pianta

Mario Pianta

Le decisioni su come orientare il cambiamento del sistema produttivo in Europa devono essere riportate all’interno della sfera pubblica, con una nuova generazione di politiche per l’industria e l’innovazione, - più democratiche e trasparenti di quelle del passato - a partire dalle tecnologie dell’informazione, dall’ambiente e dalla salute

Le Politiche Industriali Del Xxi Secolo, Mario Pianta

Mario Pianta

Le economie moderne evolvono di continuo, con attività private e pubbliche che nascono e muoiono in tutti i settori, ma alcuni cambiamenti – legati alla struttura dell’economia – sono di grande rilievo e di difficile realizzazione. Esempi di queste trasformazioni sono: il progressivo passaggio dall’agricoltura allo sviluppo industriale nei Paesi più poveri; il declino dell’industria tradizionale e lo sviluppo di servizi avanzati nei Paesi più ricchi; il passaggio da sistemi produttivi basati sulla meccanica e la chimica a un’economia dominata dalle tecnologie dell’informazione e comunicazione; la necessità di rendere la produzione sostenibile dal punto di vista ambientale ...

Innovation And Employment: A Reinvestigation Using Revised Pavitt Classes, Mario Pianta, Francesco Bogliacino 2009 Università degli Studi di Urbino Carlo Bo

Innovation And Employment: A Reinvestigation Using Revised Pavitt Classes, Mario Pianta, Francesco Bogliacino

Mario Pianta

The relationship between innovation and employment is addressed in this article through a model and empirical test at industry level for eight European countries in 1994–2004. We investigate this relationship for manufacturing and services and propose a Revised Pavitt taxonomy (covering both of them) in order to identify specific patterns of technological change and job creation and loss. The contrasting effects of strategies of technological or cost competitiveness are investigated using innovation variables from CIS2 and CIS3. Together with demand, wages and industry dynamics, they account for changes in employees and hours worked. The diversity in these relations across ...
