Economics

Courses are academic classes taught by qualified instructors that are intended to enhance participant’s knowledge of a given area or training in a particular discipline. Courses vary broadly in terms of length, size, content and duration.

Those who study economics first and foremost learn the differences between microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics involves the behavior of individual markets, such as households and firms, and their interactions. Macroeconomics, on the other hand, involves looking at the entire economy as a whole.

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

IHS, Institute For Housing and Urban Development Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam
Online & Campus Combined Part time May 2019 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 how 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.... [-]

About

Key benefits

Energy markets are at a crossroads. Technology change is having a dramatic impact in the energy industry: the contribution of renewable energies has grown rapidly during the last five years, and new sources of gas are been found. This poses new challenges for market design and environmental policy. Energy has to be affordable, sustainable and secure and yet no single country or region has found the recipe to achieve this triple objective. Do electricity markets fail and if so why? Do regulators need new instruments to guide investment incentives and if so which? How should the efforts towards increasing energy efficiency be undertaken? Is retail competition in the energy sector feasible and desirable? The regulatory debate in electricity markets is as open and exciting as ever.... [-]
