    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Meaning; interpretive; social-ecological system; complexity; science-policy interface; transformation; sustainability science methodology; Sustainability Science; vetenskap om hållbar utveckling;

    Sammanfattning : Social-ecological systems research is interventionist by nature. As a subset of sustainability science, social-ecological systems research aims to generate knowledge and introduce concepts that will bring about transformation. Yet scientific concepts diverge in innumerable ways when they are put to work in the world. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Hybrid Research Policy : How to Organize Research Funding

    Författare :Marta Cocos; Monika Berg; Jan Olsson; Joachim Åström; Jarmo Vakkuri; Örebro universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Science and innovation are crucial parts of societal prosperity. Yet managing scientific activities is challenging because, even before the implementation of any give n policy starts, policy makers have to overcome the fact that there areprofoundly different views on what the role of science in society should be and hence how the state could intervene to shape or increase the research outputs.

    Sammanfattning : The last decade has seen the emergence of a new research theme - the study of the resources Nexus. The “Nexus” refers to considering the functioning of several systems simultaneously, as opposed to one, as the object of research. This perspective reasons that coherent decision-making needs to consider systems' interconnectedness. LÄS MER

  4. 4. But What Do They Mean? : Modelling Contrast Between Speakers in Dialogue Signalled by “But”

    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; English dialogue; discourse markers; coherence relations;

    Sammanfattning : Understanding what is being communicated in a dialogue involves determining how it is coherent, that is, how the successive turns in the dialogue are related, what the speakers’ intentions, goals, beliefs, and expectations are and how they relate to each other’s responses. This thesis aims to address how turns in dialogue are related when one speaker indicates contrast with something in the preceding discourse signalled by “but”. LÄS MER
