Sustainable Local Economic Development: Supporting Firms and Farms (LED)

IHS, Institute For Housing and Urban Development Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam
Campus Part time 3 weeks May 2017 Netherlands Rotterdam

Rationale of the Training Course - Sustainable Local Economic Development: The focus of this course is on creating and managing multi-stakeholder processes that take place in the local and regional urban economy. [+]

Rationale of the training course

The focus of this course is on creating and managing multi-stakeholder processes that take place in the local and regional urban economy. Regions and localities are faced with two mayor trends in opposite directions: internationalisation and decentralisation. Internationalisation exacerbates the interactions between the global and the local levels but operates selectively. It includes only those actors that participate in networks in which competitiveness drives constant transformations and restructuring. Decentralisation is a means to coping with complexity and a reaction to growing demands for greater responsiveness and sustainability by citizens, clients and consumers. The two trends have changed the ways in which the multiple stakeholders relate to each other in the local and regional economy. Competition and cooperation are blended in the links between firms, between firms and state and non-state actors. The central concern for the governance of sustainable local economic development is to create synergies between the policies and interventions of business, state and non-state or civic actors. These come together around specific opportunities for local economic development for small and medium sized enterprises.... [-]

Oxford Royale Academy prides itself on treating every student as an individual. We allow our students to build their own bespoke timetable with additional options of supplementary study such as English Language, University Preparation and Careers Guidance. We also support students in deciding which A-Levels they would like to take, advise them on opportunities to develop their learning outside the classroom and help them to build independent learning skills which are necessary for further study worldwide. In addition to the academic programme, students at Oxford Royale Academy are provided with a vibrant range of extracurricular activities and entertainment which supplement the curriculum. All students are able to reside and study in Yarnton Manor, benefiting from this beautiful location and its excellent learning facilities, whilst also being just 15 minutes from Oxford’s bustling city centre.

A-Levels are among the most respected and accredited exams for school leavers in the world. A-Levels are the exams taken by students aged 16-18 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. More than ¾ million candidates take A-Levels every year, and the A-Level results are recognised by universities worldwide. A high grade in the A-Levels is important for entry into top universities in the world such as Oxford, Harvard, Cambridge and Yale. The A-Level programme at Oxford Royale Academy offers the chance for students to take up to 3 A-Levels over a 5 or 6 term period. In addition, there is a 3-term programme for students who are of exceptional ability and are considered to already have covered the first year of A-Level material. Whilst many schools and colleges offer the A-Level programme, few offer such a bespoke and tailored timetable as here at Oxford Royale Academy. Here, students can pick and choose exactly which individual A-Levels they would like to study, and can choose to supplement this study with our supplementary study modules such as UCAS and University Guidance or Academic Essay Writing. In addition to learning the subject knowledge needed to achieve a high grade in the A-Levels, students also learn how to revise effectively, how to structure an essay and how to prepare a presentation in our weekly academic skills workshops, and have the opportunity to enrich their knowledge with our personal development programme. We are confident that you will progress at a much faster rate here at Oxford Royale Academy than other schools or colleges. In most Sixth Forms, schools and international colleges, the average class size is 20 people. Here at Oxford Royale Academy, we prefer the Oxbridge-style teaching methods, focused around a maximum of 4 students in a class (called a tutorial). This style of teaching offers the chance to discuss topics in depth with the tutor, to ask questions and to complete the course at your own pace. A-Levels are notable for their academic rigour. While any subject will require some memorisation of facts, A-Levels generally reward creativity, insight, analysis and deeper understanding rather than the shallowness of rote learning. This makes studying for A-Levels a good preparation for the kind of mental dexterity required at university, as well as being a satisfying intellectual challenge that will leave you feeling academically stretched.

Space Policy Program

Space Odyssey Institute

Program Highlights

The theme of the Space Odyssey Institute (SOI) 2013 is Space Policy. It will emphasize the interaction between economy, law and policy, three factors which are inherently linked in space activities. Lectures will cover fields such as international law, space treaties and UN activities in space, international policy, liability law, natinonal space policies, regulations and outlook, political economy, communication policy, technology transfer policies, space and security and many more.

Concept

The Space Odyssey Institute is based on the premise that leadership requires constant renewal. Vision of the future, understanding of current opportunities, and of the rich diversity of talent available to an increasingly international space sector requires leaders to explore new directions and interact with their peers. Unfortunately the burdens of responsibility often work to isolate leadership, rather than to renew it. The Space Odyssey Institute focuses on a different issue of emerging importance each year, and provides professional renewal for its participants while increasing the space sector's understanding of important new trends....
