2. Technology Platforms: Organizing and Assessing Technological Knowledge to Support its Reuse in New Applications

Author : Daniel Corin Stig ; Chalmers University of Technology ; [] Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER ; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY ; technology management ; knowledge reuse ; technology platforms ; platform thinking ; core capabilities ; technology development ; technology reuse ; technology transfer ; knowledge management ; knowledge repositories ;

Abstract : Companies that develop a wide range of products often strive to exploit opportunities for synergy among them. Many products that cannot share components can still offer opportunities for synergy as they build upon the same technologies and know-how for their development and production. READ MORE

3. Urban drainage and climate change : impact assessment

Author : Karolina Berggren ; Luleå tekniska universitet ; [] Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY ; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER ; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER ; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY ; VA-teknik ; Urban Water Engineering ;

Abstract : According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2007), the global mean temperature has increased by 0,7 °C during the last 100 years and, as a consequence, the hydrological cycle has intensified with, for example, more intense rainfall events. As urban drainage systems have been developed over a long period of time and design criteria are based upon climatic characteristics, these changes will affect the systems and the city accordingly.

Abstract : Engineering research and development work is undergoing a reorientation from focusing on specific parts of different systems to a broader perspective of systems level, albeit at a slower pace. This reorientation should be further developed and enhanced with the aim of organizing and structuring our technical systems in meeting sustainability requirements in face of global ecological threats that have far-reaching social and economic implications, which can no longer be captured using conventional approach of research.

Doctoral studies at ITAS

ITAS offers doctoral students all the possibilities of a multidisciplinary environment. Physicists, sociologists, environmental geologists, engineers, chemists, and many others study a multitude of different topics. This variety of disciplines gives them the opportunity to examine their own dissertation project from different perspectives. In addition, once a year every doctoral student has to give a presentation on the progress of his work in an internal colloquium at the institute. Since ITAS is located in the direct vicinity of numerous technical facilities of KIT, the expertise of researchers on site can also be used. This is especially relevant for works on systems analysis.

Apart from the academic supervisors who are often not members of ITAS, each doctoral student has an internal tutor who provides guidance and discusses the progress of the dissertation. The members of the project groups and other staff from the student’s research group are also helpful supporters. The main part of the working hours should be dedicated to research on the thesis subject, but participation in thematically relevant research projects is also possible. This helps to acquire the essential skills of research work. There are no obligations to get involved in teaching. But nevertheless, if the doctoral student wants to, this initiative is welcomed and supported.

ITAS also provides the opportunity to spend some time at an institute abroad. This can either be done by resorting to existing contacts or by establishing new ones. In addition, the institute also pays the travel expenses for attending congresses, conferences, workshops, etc. Such events should also be used to present papers on the dissertation project or reflect the newly acquired knowledge in conference proceedings since doctoral students are just like all other members of the institute invited to contribute to the scientific community. The Karlsruhe House of Young Scientists ( KHYS ) at KIT provides opportunities for further education, support for stays abroad, and general promotion of young researchers. Moreover, it is possible to participate in graduate programs. For example, ITAS currently is involved in the Helmholtz Research School on Energy Scenarios .

Doctoral students at ITAS are normally funded by KIT Campus North’s doctoral program and get a three-year contract.

Every year, the doctoral students at ITAS elect two of them as spokespersons. They are the contact persons for the students at ITAS and organize the exchange of thoughts between the doctoral students.

Conceptualising, measuring and valuing the impact of Health Technology Assessment

Grieve, Eleanor (2020) Conceptualising, measuring and valuing the impact of Health Technology Assessment. PhD thesis, University of Glasgow.

How do we assess the impact of Health Technology Assessment (HTA)? Whilst high-income countries (HIC) may have led the way, lower-income countries are increasingly beginning to develop HTA processes to assist in their healthcare decision-making. Understanding how we might quantify the costs and benefits of investing in HTA is important to policy makers and donors. Very few studies have, however, estimated the benefits of the process of HTA in terms of its value to the health system. The global expansion of HTA, its variable implementation, the lack of quantified evidence on health outcomes, along with an increasing investment in these processes at the systems level in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) has generated greater interest from policy makers about the value and return on investment (ROI) of HTA. A lack of longer-term impact assessment (IA) may undermine its importance and value.

To fill this research gap, we have developed a methodological framework to estimate the ROI in HTA using net health benefits (NHB) as our measure of value. This is the difference between QALYs gained by an intervention and QALYs that could have been gained if the money required to deliver it had been spent on other interventions. We use a mixed-methods approach to quantify the value of HTA and to produce explanatory programme theory on the mechanisms by which HTA impact can be optimised. It is also important to consider opportunity costs when establishing HTA processes but which are often overlooked. The aim is to convey the concepts of potential and realised population NHB, and what we can attribute to the HTA process. Central to understanding this is the ‘value of implementation’ (VOImp). Theory-driven approaches will be used to generate and test contextual explanations for gaps between expected and actual gains in population health.

We envisage the use of this research will encourage accountability of spending decisions and help to optimise the impact of HTA in an era of investment and expansion, in particular, for LMICs, through better understanding of HTA’s role in delivering health outcomes and value for money at the system level. This research will offer a forward-looking model that LMICs can point to as a reference for their own implementation.
