Innovation in higher education: needed and feasible

Authors: Philip Joos, Lex Meijdam

Published: 2021 

Europe’s first university was established in Bologna in 1088. Its curriculum was rather narrow, largely devoted to the study of law. Since that time, universities have developed in an attempt to keep pace with our changing society. How have today’s knowledge institutes responded to the increasing pace of technological progress? How do they rise to new societal challenges? Why are they pursuing innovation in education – and how are they doing so?

GUIDE TO EUROPEAN LABOUR LAW

Author: Prof. dr. Antoine T.J.M. Jacobs

Published: 2021

 

ISBN/EAN: 978-94-6240-629-2 (Interactive PDF)

 

Unfortunately, labour law is very seldom on the bookshelves of the workers in Europe. It certainly is on the desks of trade union officials, of HRM staff of the enterprises and of lawyers and judges, but that is French, German, Polish, etc. labour law.

European Labour Law is hardly known even among labour law experts. That is of no great matter as much of the labour law of Europe is, like a sponge absorbs the water, implemented in domestic law. Sometimes, however, one needs to trace the European origins of domestic laws, for example when there are doubts whether domestic law is fully in accordance with European law.

This book has the ambition to put the reader wise about the European origins on Labour Law.

It is the fruit of lectures that Prof. Antoine Jacobs has given (2012-2019) as visiting professor at the State University of Milano.

INTRODUCTION TO FINANCIAL DERIVATIVES

Modeling, Pricing and Hedging

J.M. Schumacher

ISBN: 978-94-6240-611-7 (interactive pdf)

ISBN: 978-94-6240-612-4 (paperback version)

DOI: 10.26116/OpenPressTiU-Schumacher-04-2020

 

Financial derivatives are widely used as instruments to modify exposures to various types of financial risk. Examples include call options on a stock index, interest rate derivatives such as swaptions, and credit derivatives. The theory of financial derivatives, as it has been developed in recent decades, is based on a mix of economic ideas and concepts from mathematics.


The material in this Open Press textbook originates from notes for a course that the author has taught at Tilburg University for more than ten years, as part of the MSc program in Quantitative Finance and Actuarial Science. The text aims to provide students with an introduction to continuous-time models that are used to analyze derivative contracts in finance and insurance. Users are expected to have a solid background in standard calculus, linear algebra, and probability; prior experience with stochastic calculus, however, is not a prerequisite.

SENSING THE RISK

A CASE FOR INTEGRATING CITIZEN SENSING INTO RISK GOVERNANCE

An accessible ‘toolbox’ for interested citizen science communities and policy-makers wishing to integrate citizen-sensed data into risk governance.

Anna Berti Suman

ISBN: 978-94-6240-630-8 (Interactive PDF)

ISBN: 978-94-6240-631-5 (Paperback)

 

‘Citizen sensing’, framed as grassroots-driven monitoring initiatives based on sensor technology, is increasingly entering the debate on environmental risk governance.  Although through a possible initial conflict, citizen sensing may ultimately have the potential to contribute to institutional risk governance. Building on previous empirical research based on a combination ofmethods, including ethnographical research, descriptive analysis and fuzzy-set Qualitative Comparative Analysis, Berti Suman designs an accessible ‘toolbox’ for interested communities, policy-makers and researchers that wish to shape citizen sensing initiatives in a way to contribute to risk governance.
