Abstract

"Available Open Access under CC-BY-NC license. Reporting on the innovative, transdisciplinary co-production on sustainable urbanisation undertaken by Mistra Urban Futures, a highly influential research centre based in Sweden (2010-19), this book makes a significant original contribution to evolving theory about comparative urban research and highlights important methodological experiences across multiple diverse contexts in Africa and Europe. &#xD;&#xD;Examining specific yet diverse regional and local contexts across Europe, this book uses original research to evaluate differences in scope, approach, orientation, and objectives. It examines the embedding of LLL policies into the regional economy, the labour market, education and training systems and the individual life projects of young people, with a focus on those in situations of near social exclusion.

Abstract

Available Open Access under CC-BY-NC licence. Engagement with non-academic groups and actors – such as policy-makers, industry, charities and activist groups, communities, and the public – in the co-production of knowledge and real-world impact is increasingly important in academic research. Drawing on empirical research, interdisciplinary methodologies, and broad international perspectives, this collection offers a critical examination of the liminal space of interactions between policy and research as spaces of difference and engagement, showing them to be far from apolitical.

Abstract

"In 2015, the Museum of Cultural History at the University of Oslo carried out excavations in Løten and Elverum municipalities, Innlandet County. Al together, 79 cultural heritage sites, spanning in date from the Neolithic to the Middle Ages were excavated, including a site with burial cairns a Skillingstad, iron furnaces at Ånestad, trapping pits for elk, charcoal pits, cooking pit sites and the remains of several prehistoric fields. In addition, the book offers excavation results from adjacent areas, including a smithy from Hedmarken and a rich blacksmiths hoard from Østerdalen. A selection of articles give detailed presentations of the most important sites, while the results are put into a broad, cultural-historical context in the remaining articles. The excavations and subsequent work has generated new and central knowledge that illuminates the prehistory of southeastern Norway, but which also has relevance far beyond the region's borders. The project has provided a unique opportunity to shed light on how farms and outfield resources were integrated in the Iron Age. At the same time, the project work highlighted Løtens and Elverum's strategic location for the traffic between Østerdalen and Hedmarken – there was no other way between these two regions. "

Abstract

This book summarizes the science to be carried out by the upcoming Cherenkov Telescope Array, a major ground-based gamma-ray observatory that will be constructed over the next six to eight years. The major scientific themes, as well as core program of key science projects, have been developed by the CTA Consortium, a collaboration of scientists from many institutions worldwide.CTA will be the major facility in high-energy and very high-energy photon astronomy over the next decade and beyond. CTA will have capabilities well beyond past and present observatories. Thus, CTA's science program is expected to be rich and broad and will complement other major multiwavelength and multimessenger facilities. This book is intended to be the primary resource for the science case for CTA and it thus will be of great interest to the broader physics and astronomy communities. The electronic version (e-book) is available in open access.

Abstract

Available Open Access under CC-BY-NC licence. Using life course analysis from the Young Lives study of 12,000 children growing up in Ethiopia, India, Peru and Vietnam over the past 15 years, this book draws on evidence on two cohorts of children, aged from 1 to 15 and from 8 to 22. It examines how poverty affects children’s development in low and middle income countries, and how policy has been used to improve their lives, then goes on to show when key developmental differences occur. It uses new evidence to develop a framework of what matters most and when and outlines effective policy approaches to inform the no-one left behind Sustainable Development Goal agenda.
