Welcome to Utrecht Summer School I am delighted to present to you the programme of Utrecht Summer School 2011. Again this year, we will be offering students from all over the world a variety of academic summer courses on a wide range of subjects. We are proud to present various new, challenging courses in our offer. For example, the number of courses offered in the field of medical sciences and law has increased considerably. We are pleased that our excellent cooperation with the Hogeschool Utrecht (University of Applied Sciences) is yet again reflected in a number of summer courses. This year we will again be working together with a wide selection of partners whose names you can find on the cover of this booklet. Furthermore, we are extremely pleased with the outstanding collaboration with our international partners and the resulting course offering. International students at Utrecht Summer School will find themselves in good company. In 2011 two thousand international students will come to Utrecht to take part in our programme. With some 80 nationalities working and studying closely together, students learn to work in an international environment from the start - essential for scientists in an increasingly globalised world. I hope you will enjoy reading this booklet, which is bound to contain something to your liking. I look forward to seeing you in Utrecht this summer.

Prof. J.C. Stoof, PhD Rector Magnificus of Utrecht University

The Rector is absolutely right: our programme is bound to contain an interesting course for everyone. This year’s Summer School programme is enormously varied; we offer over 130 academic courses in all topics. And if you are interested in more than one course, there are lots of possibilities to make combinations of courses. You will not only be able to attend classes, but will also have the opportunity to participate in the special lustrum activities to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Summer School. Furthermore, you are welcome to join in on an extensive social programme and will be able to use student housing facilities in the city. We invite you to have a look at our programme and select the courses of your interest. You can combine courses in order to create a longer track. This is not only a good option because you earn more credits, but it also offers a substantial discount. Some course combinations proved to be very successful during previous editions of Utrecht Summer School and in this year’s Summer School programme you will find a number of ‘special tracks’, popular combinations of courses. For example: students can opt for a 6 weeks programme about Europe, a continent of great diversity and with a rich history, in the special track ‘European Studies’. In six weeks students will explore European Cultures and Identities, European History and Current topics in European politics. Some special tracks include an excursion to another European country or even partially take place in another country. Participants of the course ‘History of Art: European Highlights’ will explore art in Europe and see the artworks with their own eyes in Florence, Berlin and Utrecht. All this is possible during Utrecht Summer School 2011! You will find more information about these special tracks in this brochure. At our website (www.utrechtsummerschool.nl) you can find much more information. Online registration and payment is available. In the meantime you can meet other students through our Facebook group. We hope to see you this summer.

Holland The Dutch combine history and traditional culture with innovation, modernism and an international orientation. While Holland likes to emphasize its highly industrialized features, the Dutch have not let go of their background, often making use of the possibility to go for a quiet stroll along the historic canals that run through town. Holland, or the Netherlands The Netherlands is a kingdom. Its official name is the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It consists of the Netherlands itself and Aruba, Curaçao, and Sint Maarten, in the Caribbean Sea. The country’s name in Dutch is Nederland, meaning ‘low country’ and referring to the fact that much of the land is at or below sea level. Today the Netherlands is also called ’Holland‘, a name that is derived from the names of the two western coastal provinces, North and South Holland. These provinces

6

were the most developed and wealthiest parts of the country in the seventeenth century and they played a dominant role in the country’s history. Geography Holland is situated in the west of Europe and borders Germany to the east, Belgium to the south and the North Sea to the north and west. This small country lies at the point where the German, British and French cultures meet. What strikes people most when they first arrive in Holland is the landscape: the country is extremely flat. While there are some hilly areas in the southeast corner of the country, even these barely infringe on the broad, unbroken expanse of sky that is so characteristic of the Dutch landscape. Moreover, water can be found everywhere, in the form of lakes, rivers, canals and the sea. Holland’s relatively small area of slightly over 41,000 square kilometres is home to over 16 million people.

Society Dutch society is home to over 190 different nationalities living in its many cities and villages. For decades, the country’s historical ties with other parts of the world has brought people of non-Dutch origin to settle in Holland, which makes the Dutch generally openminded, freedom loving and tolerant towards foreigners. This cultural diversity has made Holland a place where knowledge, ideas and cultures from all over the world come together. Although Dutch is the national language, the majority of the population also speaks English and very often another foreign language, such as German or French. Mentality The Netherlands is a ‘self-service country’. The Dutch try to manage most things themselves, which makes them very independent and organized. Another distinctive characteristic of the Dutch is their openness and direct manner of


acting and speaking. You will notice that you can say exactly what is on your mind, as the Dutch are not easily offended. Dutch society is organized in a non-hierarchical way. For example, teachers tend to be very accessible and true interlocutors for their students. You will be on familiar terms with everybody in almost no time.

Utrecht city The history of the city goes back to 47 AD when the Roman emperor Claudius ordered his general Corbulo to build a defensive line along the river Rhine which was the northern most border of the empire. One of the strongholds (or Castella) along the river was build at a crossing in the river and was called Traiectum (which means crossingplace). In the local language this became Trecht, Uut-Trecht (lower-Trecht) and later Utrecht. On the place where once the castellum stood now stands the Dom church built in the 13th century.

Nowadays Utrecht is a lively city in the geographical centre of the Netherlands. It is not only an important junction where traffic, trade, distribution and services meet and mingle, but also a true knowledge centre: apart from Utrecht University it houses important research institutes and several other institutes of higher education. With its 300,000 inhabitants, Utrecht is the fourth largest city in the Netherlands and with no less than 70,000 of the inhabitants being students, Utrecht is a real student city. Several canals crisscross the city and encircle the city centre. The Dom tower is the focal point of the city: with a height of 112 meters, it offers a magnificent view over the city. To the south of the Dom is the city’s museum quarter. There you will find a varied offering of excellent museums in a setting of picturesque courtyards, unexpected small restaurants and delightful little shops.

Along the canals you will find a rare phenomenon, of which Utrecht citizens are extremely proud: the wharves. These wharves, which provide direct access to cellars, were used for the loading and unloading of ships and the storage of goods in the Middle Ages. These days, they are mostly used as outdoor terraces for restaurants where you can enjoy a drink or a meal looking over a canal lit by decorative lights framing the contours of the bridges. In terms of culture, Utrecht is a real festival city, with festivals like the Spring Dance Festival, the Holland Early Music Festival, The Holland Animation Festival and the Dutch Film Festival. When not hosting a festival, Utrecht is the stage for the ‘Cultural Sundays’ cultural events inspired by a location, theme or particular art form.

Higher education in the Netherlands The education system in Holland is known for its high quality in education and research and its international study environment. In addition, with 1,560 international study programmes and courses it has the largest offer of continental Europe. Holland has two main types of higher education. Research universities focus on the independent practice of researchoriented work in an academic or professional setting, while universities of applied sciences are more practically-oriented, preparing students for specific careers. Within the framework of Utrecht Summer School both Utrecht

University as HU University of Applied Sciences offer courses in a wide range of topics on various levels.

Utrecht University (UU) Utrecht University is a research university comprising of seven faculties which collectively span the entire academic spectrum in teaching and research. Founded in 1636, the University is now a modern, leading institute enjoying a growing international reputation. In the prestigious Shanghai Academic Rankings of World Universities 2010, Utrecht University ranks 1st in the Netherlands, 11th in Europe and 50th worldwide. Utrecht University offers a broad range of 50 undergraduate and 175 graduate programmes, the latter including many English-taught programmes. There are almost 30,000 students at Utrecht University and 7,500 members of staff. Every year, more than 2,000 international students and resear-


chers stay in Utrecht for variable periods of time. Utrecht University is linked to the names of many prominent academics among whom Buys Ballot, Donders, Rudolf Magnus, Van Unnik and Freudenthal. The list also includes Nobel Prize Winners such as Gerard 't Hooft from the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy. More information: www.uu.nl/EN

HU University of Applied Sciences (HU) Hogeschool Utrecht University of Applied Sciences (HU) was founded in 1995, the result of a merger of several independent institutions. The HU is the third largest university of applied sciences in the Netherlands and is funded by the state. It has over 37,500 students (including 1200 international students) with more than one hundred different nationalities.

The HU offers a wide range of courses spread within nine principal themes. Most of the 80 programmes lead to a Bachelor’s degree, and some lead to a Master’s degree. Several programmes are taught in English. To prepare students for their future career, our international programmes have some unique aspects: • Competence-based education to provide excellent professional skills • Individual supervision and a limited number of students per group • International experience: study abroad • Work experience at international companies All courses are geared towards the practical aspects of the disciplines and the teaching is competence based with the emphasis on professional skills and work placements. More information: www.international.hu.nl

Social programme Utrecht Summer School not only offers you a fine selection of interesting courses in all kind of disciplines, it also intends to give the participants an unforgettable stay.

European Cultures and Identities

Europe: Contemporary Issues

Faculty of Humanities (UU)

This course introduces students to the various compelling challenges that European society faces at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Policy makers, politicians and academic specialists discuss the solutions that are being explored to cope with these issues, and explore how Europe will face the future. Among the many topics to be discussed are the economic crisis and the role of state governments; global warming, immigration and integration; gender, ethnicity and identity; and the many global interconnections and dependencies of globalization. How can we the define the European dream for the future?

This course offers an introduction to Europe, a continent of great diversity. Each of its countries and peoples carry their own cultures, religions, traditions and languages, yet the majority of them are now engaged in a joint project aimed at political and economic integration in the European Union.

Religion in Europe: Cement and Dynamite

Global Citizenship Summer School

Faculty of Humanities (UU)

Faculty of Humanities (UU) in cooperation with City University London

Unlike other parts of the world, Europe seems to grow more and more secular. This is especially true for the Netherlands, where church membership and church attendance have been decreasing for more than a century. Yet much still reminds of the religious “Judeo-Christian” identity of the country or the continent. In recent years, religion has re-entered the public arena with a vengeance. The most glaring expression of this resurfacing is the success of openly antiMuslim parties. In this course we will study the ups and downs of religion in the Netherlands, and try to explain them through comparison with developments in Europe!

From Van Gogh to Picasso: Modern European and Dutch Art Faculty of Humanities (UU) Many people feel at loss as to how approach a modern artwork: it is too abstract, too strange, and they feel locked out from being able to interact with it. Dutch modern art made a unique contribution to the whirlpool of European modern movements, but some artists are barely known to an international audience. This course tackles both issues: it provides you with tools to understand and experience modern art and provides you with both a general overview of European modern art and a specialist one of Dutch modern art.

Nothing is What it Seems: Dutch Art of the Golden Age Faculty of Humanities (UU) Until recently, Dutch art of the Golden Age was seen as technically good, but not very interesting. It was just too realistic, where was the artistic imagination? Today, this opinion on Dutch art has changed and the value of Golden Age artworks has soared. So what is the true meaning behind all these seascapes and still lifes that look so real that you can feel the sea-breeze and smell the grapes? Discover what is so special about Dutch Golden Age art, in this course you will embark on a fascinating journey where nothing is what it seems.

This course covers many of the country’s most renowned museums, artists and cities, and the interactive activities for a large part take place in front of the original art works. The first half of the course focuses on Dutch art of the Golden Age, the time of legendary painters such as Rembrandt and Vermeer. The second half of the course focuses on European and Dutch modern art, from Van Gogh to Picasso to Mondrian, it will explore modern Dutch art in a European art context.

This course will introduce Berlin’s outstanding art collections, with their wide range of masterpieces from late medieval times to the present day. We shall focus on the particular circumstances that shaped the production and reception of German art, especially during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. During this long period, the formation of a German nation state and the problematic notion of a German national identity became intimately connected to the question of a German style and artistic ‘expression’. A special focus will be given to the “Art of the two Germanys” between 1945 and 1989.

History of Art: Artistic Relations Between Italy and the Netherlands Faculty of Humanities (UU) in cooperation with the Dutch Art Institute in Florence Today, both Italian Renaissance art and Dutch Golden Age art have conquered their prime positions in the art history books. But in the 16th and 17th centuries, the ‘Northern’ style of painting was seen as very different from the ‘Southern’ one, even though artists from both traditions influenced each other, there were ongoing disputes about which style was the best one. This course offers an opportunity to travel back in time and experience the art from both traditions first hand, staying in two cities that played a pivotal part in their country’s art: Florence and Utrecht.

Bilingualism Faculty of Humanities (UU)

Language

Ask someone their opinion on bilingualism and you’re likely to hear statements such as: “Learning two languages from birth confuses children and impairs their cognitive development”, “Bilingual children can’t speak either of their two languages properly” or “You can only become bilingual if you start acquiring your second language as a young child.” Though common currency among the general public, each of these statements is in fact a myth. In this course, you will discover why this is the case as we review some of the most important findings from the research on bilingual children.

Micro and Macro Variation in Language Faculty of Humanities (UU) In this course, linguistic variation across human languages is studied from two comparative perspectives. In the first part of the course students are introduced into the field of macro variation, the systematic study of the similarities and differences between the world’s more than 5000 natural languages. The second part of the course focuses on the study of micro variation – the study of language systems that are very similar, such as closely related languages, or dialects of the same language. We will look at micro variation from a syntactic point of view, and discuss the relevance of phenomena such as syntactic dialect variation for linguistic theory.

Evolution of Language Faculty of Humanities (UU) Human language is complex and results from interacting simpler systems, which each may have had a long evolutionary history of its own. Nevertheless the way these modules are integrated into a working system has been novel as well as recent. Relevant questions that will be addressed in this course include: Which systems are uniquely human (species-specific) and uniquely linguistic (domain-specific)? Did core properties of human language evolve gradually and adaptively from gestural or vocal systems of animal communication? Or was their evolution saltational and exaptive? What was the primary function of language? Communication or an efficient way of organising cognitive systems?

Statistics for Experimental Linguists Faculty of Humanities (UU) This crash course is meant as a basic introduction to statistical treatment of experimental data. Attention will be given to description of data, and to basic ideas such as sampling, chance levels and hypothesis testing. Furthermore, the question of how to design an experiment that might prove/disprove your theory will be discussed. The programme is rather ambitious, so students should prepare the assigned chapters before coming to class. In class, the material will be discussed and we will go into some of the exercises.

Introduction to Generative Syntax

Psycholinguistics

Faculty of Humanities (UU)

This course is meant as a basic introduction into the field of psycholinguistics. Topics covered will be syntactic and semantic processing (perception and production), aphasia, and first and second language acquisition. In this course the study of psychological mechanisms underlying language structure and language use will be introduced.

In this course, students will be taught the basics of the theoretical framework evolved from and based on Chomsky (1981). One of Chomsky’s main innovations was to give linguistics the formal tools to study language. The formal tools of generative linguistics enabled linguists to explore the complexity of sentence structure and sentence meaning. The theory accounts for the creativity of human language; the characteristic that makes human language unlike the communication system of any other animal. Topics covered will include phrase structure, complementation, case and theta-theory, and movement.

This beginner’ course in Dutch offers you the opportunity to learn the Dutch language fast and well. It covers the four skills of listening, reading, writing and speaking. During the course you will also get familiarised with Dutch customs and manners. After completing this course, students can understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information). They will be able to communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters. Students can describe in simple terms aspects of their background and immediate environment.

One of the most remarkable features of the human species is the capacity for sharing meaning. We are by far the best communicators around. So what is it about our brains that make us so? This course will provide an in-depth overview of cognitive neuroscience research on communicative meaning. How does the brain store and retrieve word meaning? Which neural systems are involved in constructing phrase-level meaning? How do readers or listeners move beyond the code, and recover speaker meaning? What are the neural mechanisms required to deal with text or conversation? How do systems that handle the linguistic code interact with those involved in affect, mentalizing, and recognising social actions?

Contemporary and International Conflict Management

Migration, Integration and Ethnic Relations

Faculty of Humanities (UU)

Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences (UU)

This course introduces students to the manifestations and analysis of contemporary conflict in Europe (and elsewhere). It will be discussed whether present-day conflicts are different from classical war, both in terms of origin and the way they are conducted and eventually solved. Several, sometimes contradictory, analytical and theoretical approaches to contemporary conflict will be looked at. These vary from (Neo-) Malthusian approaches focusing on scarcity, approaches dealing with state-society relations and governance or with issues of nationalism and identity, to political economies of violence and discursive approaches to conflict. In the second week the attention shifts from analysis to policy practice.

Migration has made European countries ethnically and culturally more diverse. Host populations have to adapt to migrants and their religion and culture, while migrants have to find their way in a new and sometimes aversive environment. This course introduces students to basic sociological and other social scientific theories and empirical research on international migration, reactions of the host society, and the integration of immigrants and their children. The approach is analytical and empirical and focuses on international migration, stereotyping, discrimination, political mobilization, extreme-right wing voting, ethnic segregation in social networks, and ethnic inequality in the labour market.

Innovations for a Sustainable Future

Land Governance for Development

Faculty of Geosciences (UU)

Faculty of Geosciences (UU)

What are the challenges for a sustainable future? How can innovation address these challenges? How to understand innovation processes in energy and water management? How to manage such innovation processes? These are the main questions that will be addressed in this course. We focus at Dutch practices of innovation and governance to work on a sustainable future. During lectures we will discuss the challenges for a sustainable future. New technologies are important for a sustainable future, but sustainability problems and solutions are disputed, and implementation is not straightforward. Therefore, emphasis will be on the diffusion and implementation processes of innovations, which will provide handholds for policy.

Globalisation, neoliberal governance and new technologies have opened the way for new, often external actors to acquire land in developing countries. Large tracts of land are being bought up for growing bio-fuels and food for export, which may clash with existing land use and local interests. As a result, access to and use of land is being reshaped profoundly. This means that land governance in developing countries has to find ways to deal with multiple pressures and competing claims. The course will introduce students to the multiple dimensions of land governance from a development perspective. Students will acquire knowledge on new land pressures and learn how to place these in broader theoretical debates.

Contemporary Cities: Challenges and Opportunities

Inclusion: Dealing with Special Needs in the Classroom

Faculty of Geosciences (UU)

Education and Pedagogics (HU)

On the one hand, cities are economic engines and centres of innovation and culture. They attract people to live, work and study. They are where new ideas emerge, where capital accumulates and where trends in lifestyle and culture begin. On the other hand, major cities also have concentrations of poverty, social problems, unemployment as well as pollution, congestion and issues of affordability. While the benefits of urban life are plentiful, these challenges continue to grow. The aim of this two week course is to familiarise students with the major issues confronting European and North American cities of the 21st century and the various ways in which these challenges are being addressed.

In the Netherlands, children with special educational needs (SEN) are increasingly being educated in mainstream school environments. This course focuses on future teachers’ attitudes towards the inclusion of children with SEN. Students will be introduced to the inclusion policy in education in the Netherlands. We provide a historical perspective on this topic and focus on students’ own personal teaching practices related to inclusive education. In workgroups, activities are implemented around the main question: What competences do general education teachers and special education teachers need to be competent inclusive teachers?

Alternative Education in the Netherlands

Structural Equation Modelling Using Mplus

Education and Pedagogics (HU)

Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences (UU)

An important feature of the Dutch education system is the so-called ‘freedom of education’. This freedom results in a diversity of confessional and public schools and in a great variety of pedagogiceducational concepts. Within the Dutch education system, alternative pedagogy takes an important place. In alternative schools children’s needs and the relationship with the teacher are handled in an innovative way. In this course you will be introduced to alternative schools as an important component of the Dutch education system, and to the contexts, theory, and practice of alternative education.

The course starts with an introduction of structural equation modeling with some emphasis on the specific way Mplus is used to specify and estimate models. The second day introduces multigroup models, growth curve models, incomplete data, and how Mplus deals with non-normal and categorical data. The available choices of different estimation methods and statistical tests are also discussed. The third day, some advanced Mplus applications are presented, including SEM mediation and moderation analysis, multilevel SEM, and Latent Class modeling. The fourth day is about how to deal with error messages, what to do with missing data and the new feature of Mplus: Bayesian statistics.

Introduction to Multilevel Analysis

Introduction to Educational Measurement

Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences (UU)

CITO

Social research often involves problems that investigate the relationship between individual and society. The general concept is that individual persons are influenced by the social groups or contexts to which they belong, and that the properties of those groups are in turn influenced by the individuals who make up that group. Generally, the individuals and the social groups are conceptualized as a hierarchical system of individuals and groups, with individuals and groups defined at separate levels of this system. The appropriate analysis technique for such a hierarchical system is multilevel analysis. In this course the benefits of multilevel analysis are discussed.

This course provides an introduction to educational measurement. The course is centred around the three main fields of application for educational measurement: exams, surveys, and the monitoring of progress. A fourth topic that is covered is the setting of performance standards as it applies regardless of the purpose. The elements of educational measurement that will be treated are Classical Test Theory, Item Response Theory (IRT), estimation and evaluation of IRT models, equating of tests, multilevel regression, application of plausible values, modelling of growth and standard setting.

Conflict Resolution and Mediation Skills Society and Law (HU) This course offers you a challenging introduction to conflict resolution and mediation skills. Most studies and professions require a vast amount of cooperation. In their cooperation people frequently differ from opinion and hold different priorities. Although conflicts occur frequently, it is common for people to ignore them. At the same time conflicts also offer a chance for unexpected possibilities. In this way conflicts can also be great learning experiences. The aim of this course is to make you familiar with the backgrounds of human conflict behaviour and to develop and practice conflict resolution and mediation skills.

European Politics and Economy

Capita Selecta Sustainability

Faculty of Humanities (UU)

Economics and Management (HU)

Central to this course is the European Union (EU), an economic and political partnership between 27 democratic European countries with almost 500 million citizens, which has become a major player in global politics and economy. Students will be introduced to the history, institutional structures, current aims, and future challenges of the European Union. The course will also analyse how the development of a single market through a standardised system of laws and the adoption of a single currency by 15 member states, facilitates a European economy that now represents almost a third of the total economic output of the world.

Capita Selecta refers to a selection of topics related to the same theme. This course focuses on the theme of sustainability, a theme that has been on everyone’s agenda for the past decades but still remains open to different interpretations. A theme on which many discussions, often very intense, still take place today. The course kicks off with a series of lectures offering various perspectives on sustainability, in areas like sustainable economics, architecture, politics, business, landscaping, tourism and will then challenge students to discuss the implications of these perspectives.

Natural Hazards & Climate Change

History of Life on Earth

Faculty of Geosciences (UU)

The history of life on earth can be studied by its fossil record. In this approach, each fossil is seen as a window in evolutionary history and paleoecology. Importantly, fossils provide us with essential information on the age of the layers they are found in. Moreover they comprise our single most valuable source of information on the environment in the past. Fossils ranging from marine micro-organisms to large terrestrial vertebrates are thus used as tools to reconstruct time, evolutionary history, climate, and ancient environments. An important part of the course will consist of hands-on exercises where you will learn how to use fossils for age determination and for environmental reconstruction.

Natural hazards such as floods, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes occur often unexpected and uncontrolled and may inflict considerable material-, economical, and emotional damage. Although mankind is vulnerable to these disasters, their prediction, control and/or mitigation have proven to be challenging.To improve our understanding of natural hazards and climate change we will examine a wide range of earth science topics in this course. These subjects will be discussed in lectures and during tutorials we will apply our theoretical understanding to recent or famous past natural hazards that had a large impact on the lives of the victims.

History and Philosophy of Science: Revolutions in Science

Applied Functional Programming in Haskell

Faculty of Science (UU)

Faculty of Science (UU)

Science is one of the major determinants of modern society. The philosophy of science studies general questions concerning the nature of scientific knowledge and scientific methods, but also includes conceptual analysis of fundamental theories such as relativity, quantum mechanics, evolution and modern genetics. The historical approach focuses on the development of scientific thought and practice in times past. It does not limit itself to the problems, methods and solutions assigned by scientists, but extends its scope to the interplay with cultural, social or institutional features at particular times and places.

Typed functional programming languages allow for the development of robust, concise programmes in a short amount of time. The key advantages are higherorder functions as an abstraction mechanism, and an advanced type system for safety and reusability. This course introduces Haskell, a state-of-the-art functional programming language, together with some of its theoretical background, such as typed lambda calculi, referential transparency, DamasMilner type inference, and functional design patterns. We will quickly move on to applications of functional programming, concentrating on topics such as language processing, building graphical user interfaces, networking, databases, and programming for the web.

Pharmacoepidemiology & Drug Safety

Pharmacoeconomics

Faculty of Science (UU)

Today’s society is confronted with ever increasing health care costs. One of the factors is the cost of drug innovations. Diseases waiting for therapeutic solutions are complicated and multifactorial in nature. As a result, drug innovation has become even more complex leading to high tech and therefore high cost solutions. The question arises, what is the added value of such high cost innovations and how can it be determined when both benefit and harm are considered. Health economics, and more specific pharmacoeconomics, aim to provide a neutral scientific approach to this challenge.

With the prospect that innovative drug therapies will be introduced in the coming years, society demands new approaches and concepts for comparative risk/benefit evaluation. These evaluations are carried out once these therapies have been used widely in daily practice. Assessment of safety and risk management of different drug therapies is done in the framework of observational epidemiological studies (proof of “safety”, proof of “effectiveness”). This is the logical next step after randomized clinical trials, which are designed to provide evidence of a drugs “efficacy”. The course will cover key issues in pharmacoepidemiologic and drug safety research. Special topics include databases and molecular pharmacoepidemiology.
