  1. 1. Water Governance in Transition

    Författare :Lina Suleiman; Göran Cars; Jan-Erik Gustafsson; Erik Swyngedouw; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :Water governance; public private partnership; civil society; new institutional economics; Accra; Amman;

    Sammanfattning : The constraints experienced by water utilities in developing countries, with regard to the universal provision of access to water and improved water services, have been defined by international policymakers as "a crisis of governance". This study departs from the theoretical perspectives on governance and aspires to accumulate knowledge and advance understanding on how the performance of water utilities can be enhanced. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Studies on regulatory networks governing virulence gene transcription in Staphylococcus aureus

    Författare :Erik Gustafsson; Högskolan i Skövde; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Naturvetenskap; Natural sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Staphylococcus aureus pathogenicity is dependent on the coordinated action of a number of virulence factors and the expression of these virulence factors is determined by several global regulators. The main regulator seems to be agr but there are several additional regulators (mostly sarA homologues) involved that mainly act downstream of agr. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Fashioning a Knowledge Intensive Entrepreneur?

    Författare :Erik Gustafsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :knowledge intensity; entrepreneurship; fashion; higher education; creative industries; creative knowledge; entrepreneurial intentions;

    Sammanfattning : This PhD dissertation explores fashion design graduates as potential knowledge-intensive entrepreneurs through the relationship between knowledge and other resources, and different pathways post-graduation. Explorative qualitative studies are used to analyse how fashion designers reflect and act after graduating from fashion school, applying theories about knowledge-intensive entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial intentions.
