How can we govern consumption and the sharing economy in our cities?
This course explores cities, consumption and the sharing economy in Europe and around the world. We connect together the key themes of the sharing economy, cities, governance, consumption and urban sustainability. We explore how the sharing economy can contribute to increasing social, environmental and economic sustainability. And we argue that it is imperative that the sharing economy is shaped and designed to advance urban sustainability.
This course was launched in May 2020, and it was updated in September 2021 with new podcasts, films and publications. This course is produced by Lund University in cooperation with partners from Sharing Cities Sweden – a national program for the sharing economy in cities with a focus on governance and sustainability. It features researchers, practitioners and entrepreneurs from a range organisations.
This course deals with model-based testing, a class of technologies shown to be effective and efficient in assessing the quality and correctness of large software systems. Throughout the course the participants will learn how to design and use model-based testing tools, how to create realistic models and how to use these models to automate the testing process in their organisation.
The aim of this course is to provide participants with the principles behind model-driven development of software systems and the application of such a methodology in practice. Modelling is an effective solution to reduce problem complexity and, as a consequence, to enhance time-to-market and properties of the final product.
In this course you will learn state-of-the-art statistical modelling for the purpose of analysing industrial data. The course also presents the basics of relational databases and data manipulation techniques needed to prepare the data for analysis.
This course makes you acquainted with the concept of systems-of-systems (SoS), which means that independent systems are collaborating. It gives you an understanding why SoS is an important topic in the current digitalisation and provides a theoretical and practical foundation for understanding important characteristics of SoS. It also gives you a deeper knowledge in a number of key concerns that need to be considered when engineering SoS.
Admitted students to this course may join the course any time between August 29 and October 7, 2022. With the recommended study pace of 25%, the course would take approximate seven calendar weeks to complete. Higher or lower study pace is possible as long as the course is finished no later than January 15, 2023.
The aim of this course is to give students insight about certification and about what it means to certify/self-assess safety- critical systems with focus on software system and to create a safety case, including a multi-concern perspective when needed and reuse opportunities, when appropriate.
In this course, you will learn about common air pollutants and how to manage and control air pollution. The course gives you enhanced knowledge about relevant aspects of modern air quality management systems based on regulations and policies related to ambient air quality management in the EU and Sweden.
