  1. 1. Project Evaluation in Development Cooperation : A Meta-Evaluative Case Study in Tanzania

    Författare :Mikiko Cars; Jan-Ingvar Löfstedt; Roy Carr-Hill; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; meta-evaluation; social programme evaluation theories and methodology; international development cooperation; development evaluation; community based approach; actor oriented approach; participatory monitoring and evaluation; responsive-constructivist evaluation; Tanzania; International education; Internationell pedagogik;

    Sammanfattning : The research reported here is a meta-evaluative case study of project evaluation in the context of Official Development Cooperation (ODC) in the education sector in Tanzania, where the particular focus is on capturing the relative values attached to evaluation by various stakeholder groups.Perspectives from the constructivist paradigm are adopted, implying relativist ontology, subjectivist epistemology, and naturalistic interpretive methodology.

  2. 2. Smart Homes and User Values : Long-term evaluation of IT-services in Residential and Single Family Dwellings

    Författare :Greger Sandström; Ulf Keijer; Brian Atkin; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; accessibility; developer; dwelling; construction process; evaluation; home; housing; information technology; intelligent building; long-term; model; post-occupancy evaluation; resident; service delivery; smart home; trust; usability; usefulness; user; user evaluation; user experience; user value; Architecture; Arkitektur;

    Sammanfattning : Do residents find value in smart home functions? How should these functions be designed to offer user benefit? These were the governing questions of this study that involved nearly 200 families in three different housing projects during five years of occupancy. The housing units were equipped with advanced smart homes solutions, electronic and digital devices to control them, and a set of functions to increase comfort, safety and security in the homes.

  3. 3. Biomass conversion through syngas-based biorefineries : thermochemical process integration opportunities

    Författare :Katarina Åberg; Anders Nordin; Linda Pommer; Erik Dahlquist; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biomass; biorefinery; thermochemical conversion; torrefaction; slow pyrolysis; gasification; process integration; carbon negativity;

    Sammanfattning : The replacement of fossil resources through renewable alternatives is one way to mitigate global climate change. Biomass is the only renewable source of carbon available for replacing oil as a refining feedstock. Therefore, it needs to be utilized not just as a fuel but for both biochemical and thermochemical conversion through biorefining. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Early Evaluation of Software Process Change Proposals

    Författare :Martin Höst; Institutionen för datavetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; software process improvement; software engineering; empirical evaluation; interviews; experimentation; Systems engineering; Personal Software Process; Data- och systemvetenskap; computer technology;

    Sammanfattning : Software process improvement involves evaluation of process change proposals, and it is important to evaluate changes as early as possible. A process impact analysis method for interview based evaluation of change proposals is presented. It is based on the subjective opinions of people in the organisation, and it is carried out in three steps. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Ethanol from Softwood - Techno-Economic Evaluation for Development of the Enzymatic Process

    Författare :Anders Wingren; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
