The United Nations aspirational agenda for sustainable development calls for the shared efforts of governments, business sector, society and stakeholders to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. In the business perspective, the joint pursuit of both durable competitive advantages and long-term benefits for society are not just the result of companies’ reactions to goals of institutions or demands of stakeholders. Rather, they depend on a holistic integration of sustainability in companies’ strategic decision-making.

The aim of Sustainable Development Goal 7 is to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. Increased energy efficiency is particularly important in the construction industry because urban agglomerations currently consume up to 80% of global energy, 40% of which is attributable to buildings. In countries like Italy however, where historical buildings constitute a significant part of the building patrimony, improving energy efficiency is not always straightforward as interventions must take into account the historical materials used as well as the context of the construction.

This paper deals with the search for a dynamic run-based optimal travel strategy, to be supplied through mobile devices to travelers on a stochastic multi-service transit network, which includes a forecasting system of bus arrival times at stops. The paper first analyses some existing run-based optimal strategy search methods, then a new procedure is proposed and applied. Leggi il seguito

Location of differentiated waste collection centers with user cooperation: a bilevel optimization approach

Caramia, M.,Giordani, S.

Volume 14, 2020, Pages 85-99

We focus on the problem of locating differentiated waste collection centers: a municipal firm acts with the goal of locating and installing proper capacities to such facilities with the goal of defining a cooperative behaviour of the users of an urban area, possibly giving economic incentives to the latter in the case they decide to follow a predefined planning on waste recycling.

The effects of gender, age and academic rank on research diversification

Abramo, G., D’Angelo, C.A., Di Costa, F.      



In this work we analyze the combined effects of gender, age and academic rank on the propensity of individual scholars to diversify their scientific activity. The aspect of research diversification is measured along three main dimensions, namely its extent and intensity and the cognitive relatedness of the fields of diversification. Leggi il seguito
