Abstract

In the scope of the 16th Cultural Week of the University of Coimbra (2014) with as reunited a set of investigators who, sharing the same scientific concerns, discuss the issue(s) around the subjects of networks, human capital and geography of competiveness. It resulted in a set of research works about contemporary territorial relations, between continuous spatial logics and discontinued, Euclidian and topological in which, apart from the old geographical issues, slower, it were considered also the faster and technological mediate and networks structured relations. The urgency of studies in this are results from the importance that networks have in the strategical settlement of locations, gaining interest the analysis of the relations of geographic proximity and continuity, as well as the discontinued relations, those that seek strategic affinity associations yet scarred by distant and fragmented geographical positions. The discussion is, thus, developed around the understanding of how the strategic affirmation of places, on one hand, and the promotion of human capital, on the other, depend, at the same time, on old and new geographies, on the relations of proximity, relations at a distance (in networks) and still of the resilience of populations in the sense of the capability to adapt and answer reactively and proactively.

Abstract

Old and new order of the sexes: on the one hand - as neoconservatism says - men and women are completely equal: Equal opportunities seem to have been achieved. On the other hand, liberal individualism says that the differences between the sexes are of enormous importance. Are these two sides of the same coin? The authors analyse this contradiction from a pedagogical perspective. The "Jahrbuch Frauen- und Geschlechterforschung in der Erziehungswissenschaft" is based on an important scientific and political development. Women's and gender studies in educational science has contributed significantly to the fact that the influence of gender and gender difference can no longer be ignored. The Yearbook is conceived against this background and has two central tasks: First, it aims to continuously document gender studies in educational science and, second, to create an innovative forum for scientific discourse. All articles are reviewed according to the international standard for review journals.

Abstract

Ensuring the sustainability of early stage companies and increasing awareness of the need for balancing targets against different stakeholder groups among young companies are not well developed. Young companies, in the first place, want to achieve financial success very often without regard for aspects such as the environment, positive relationships with employees, suppliers or other stakeholder groups, fulfilling requirements of labor law, etc. Another issue is that of companies whose business models are based on actuarially-preferred concepts, such as sharing economy, sustainable development, e-comers, e-commerce, renewable energy, social media, and others. A key issue is the resignation of companies from an approach to business, based on the foundations of classical economics to the sharing economy. Theory and practice seek new solutions in the sphere of value sharing in these new areas of sharing, and innovative forms of its implementation. Intriguing is the relationship of these business models with sustainability issues, as well as wondering how technology can influence sustainability. A contemporary approach to consumer value fits in with the assumption of a shared economy. It is interesting how it affects the assumptions of sustainability of business. The ongoing changes in the value system of potential consumers create new conditions for the design of sustainability business models and creation of innovation.
