Our Partners


Welcome to Utrecht Summer School I am delighted to present to you the Utrecht Summer School programme for 2017. This year, we will once again be offering a great variety of academic summer courses, to students from all over the world. Next to the courses that have proven to be popular over the years, new courses have been added to our programme. We are pleased that our excellent cooperation with the Hogeschool Utrecht (University of Applied Sciences) and with the HKU (University of the Arts Utrecht) is yet again reflected in a number of summer courses. This year, we will be working together with a wide selection of partners throughout the Netherlands. Furthermore, we are extremely pleased with the outstanding collaboration with our international partners and the resulting courses not only in Utrecht, but also in several other cities around the world. International students at Utrecht Summer School will certainly find themselves in good company. In 2016, around 3500 students came to Utrecht to participate in one or more of our courses. With over 125 nationalities working and studying closely together, students learn to work in an international environment from the start, which is essential for scientists in an increasingly globalized world. I hope you will enjoy reading this brochure, which is bound to contain something to your liking. I look forward to seeing you in Utrecht this summer.

Prof. Dr. G.J. van der Zwaan Rector Magnificus of Utrecht University

With great pleasure I present to you our summer programme of 2017. Thirty years ago, in 1987, we started with just one course on Dutch culture. Today we have over two hundred courses in all of the university’s faculties, ranging from bachelor to PhD level. Whether you are a PhD student concerned with medicine, a bachelor student with a keen interest in business, or a student looking to learn the Dutch language and culture; we have a course that suits your needs. Some of our courses contain international components. We work together with Universities in Italy, Germany, Russia and Estonia, with whom we offer unique programmes in art history, culture, history, and business. The Utrecht Summer School ambition is to offer an up-to-date course programme where important economic, social, cultural and political issues are thoroughly studied and discussed. Our courses deal with important contemporary subjects such as the Financial Crisis, Future Food, European Politic, Game Research, Future Deltas, Neuroscience and many other more. Many of the courses we offer are two weeks in length. Of course you are invited to combine courses to extend your experience and stay in Utrecht. Go ahead and mix and match to create the ideal course package for you. You can find our well-known combinations in this brochure in the form of ‘special tracks’. These tracks not only allow you to easily apply for a combination of courses, they also result in a substantial discount. This mix of a varied and academically challenging course offer, together with student housing and an extensive social programme ultimately results in a very exciting summer. Take your time and look through this brochure to find the course that will take you to Utrecht Summer School in 2017. Through our website you can apply and find more information on each course, our social programme and our housing options. Go ahead and have a look at www.utrechtsummerschool.com.

The Netherlands The Dutch combine history and traditional culture with innovation, modernism and an international orientation. While the Dutch like to emphasise its highly industrialised features, they 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.

The Netherlands or Holland? The Netherlands is a kingdom. Its official name is the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It consists of the Netherlands together with the Caribbean islands: Aruba, Curaçao, and Sint Maarten. The country’s name in Dutch is Nederland, meaning ‘low country’ and refers 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 two western coastal provinces, North and South Holland. These provinces were the most developed and wealthiest parts of the country in the 17th century and they played a dominant role in the country’s history.


Geography The Netherlands is situated in the west of Europe and borders on 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 the Netherlands is the landscape: the country is extremely flat. While there are some hilly areas in the southeast corner of the country, 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 of course the sea.

The parts of the Netherlands below sea level would be flooded if there were no dikes, dunes and other fortifications. The Netherlands has a relatively small land area of slightly over 41,5 thousand square kilometres. With over 17 million inhabitants and a population density of 502 people per km2, the Netherlands is the one of the most densely populated countries in the world.

Society Dutch society is made up of over 190 different nationalities living in its many cities and villages. For decades, the country’s historical ties with other parts of the world have brought people of non-Dutch origin to settle in the Netherlands, which have made the Dutch generally open-minded, freedom loving and tolerant towards foreigners. This cultural diversity has made the Netherlands 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.

Utrecht 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 castellum) along the river was built at a crossing in the river and was called Traiectum (which means crossing place). In the local language this became Trecht, UutTrecht (lower-Trecht) and later Utrecht. At the place where once the castellum stood now stands the Dom Church built in the 13th century.

With no less than 70,000 of the inhabitants being students , Utrecht is a true student city. Several canals crisscross the city and encircle the city centre. The Dom Tower is the focal point and the pride 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.

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 is also a true knowledge centre. In addition to the Utrecht University, the HU University of Applied Sciences and the HKU University of the Arts , the city is also home to important research institutes and several other institutions of higher education. With its 300,000 inhabitants, Utrecht is the fourth largest city in the Netherlands.

Along the canals there is 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 for the storage of goods in the Middle Ages. These days, they are mostly used as outdoor terraces for restaurants and bars. Sitting by the water, you can enjoy a drink or a meal looking over the decorative lit canal.


Utrecht Summer School The Utrecht Summer School started in 1987 with one course: Dutch Culture and Society. In the last three decades, the Summer School has developed a broad selection of over 200 courses in virtually all disciplines offered at Utrecht University, HU University of Applied Sciences and HKU University of the Arts. In 2016, Utrecht Summer School attracted more than 3500 students from 127 different countries; making it is the largest academic summer school in Europe. The Summer School programme is characterised by strong, academic courses in a variety of subjects. For

Migrating Religions

Faculty of Humanities (UU)

When people move, their gods move with them. In this course you will discover how the transition of religious groups from one location to another changed history. By investigating case-studies from the ancient world up to the early modern period, you will learn about the socio-political aspects of religions in transit, focusing on the cultural impact these migrations had on the world as we know it. We will travel across continents and empires, exploring the Greek influence on Egypt, the Christian transformation of Rome, the Islamic revival of Iberia and the Catholic blend with the indigenous religions of the Americas.

Ever wondered what makes Europeans 'European'? During this course you will uncover the answers while staying at the beautiful medieval city of Utrecht. You will not only uncover Europe's cultural pluralism, but also its varied identities that still exist today; despite the fact that the majority of the European countries are progressively collaborating on an economic and political level. Each of Europe's countries and peoples still carry their own distinctive cultures, languages, political views, religions, and traditions. Thus this course offers an introduction to Europe, a continent of great diversity.

New Financing Models in a Changing World Economics and Management (HU) The course consists of two parts, of which the 2nd part will take you to St. Petersburg (Russia). Since the credit crisis in 2008, banks are focused on improving their image and balance sheets. The standards for providing loans have been raised so far that small and mediumsized enterprises (SME) hardly can fund new investments. Also startups have difficulties in raising funds. This trend will continue and therefore small and medium sized companies are sourcing their funds in alternative ways. We also see other financial institutions starting innovations. In short the financial world is changing and new models of financing will conquer the world.

Entrepreneurial and SME Financing Economics and Management (HU) Exploring financing opportunities along the lifecycle of the small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) is the topic of this course. How to finance the (first) growth stage of this SME? As banks are reluctant to finance SME ventures, alternative financing instruments such as SME binds, crowd-funding, impact investing, peer-to-peer lending, and others can be used in order to prepare a financial plan, based on a three years forecast and including these alternative financing sources. Bank financing is possible during the (early) growth phase but needs to be prepared in a proposal according to the bank's requirements. How do you manage investors and your bank?

Regulating Big Tech: Competition, Privacy, and Intellectual Property

International Human Rights Law: an Introduction

Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance (UU)

Interested in learning about human rights? This oneweek introduction course focuses on the major features of international human rights law. It begins by examining the philosophical and political bases of human rights and then explores human rights documents and mechanisms for the promotion and protection of human rights at the international and regional levels. Human rights-based approaches for analyzing conflict and attempts to promote peace and justice will also be explored. Through lectures, interactive working groups, expert panels and excursion(s), participants will gain an understanding of the various elements - and their interplay - involved in this field.

The rise of big technology companies such as Google, Apple and Facebook, has raised questions in the areas of competition, privacy, and intellectual property. The European Commission has started several antitrust investigations into technology companies to ensure fair and undistorted competition. Data protection authorities are concerned with the privacy implications of the collection and sharing of large amounts of data by these companies. This summer school course aims to give an overview of how technology companies are regulated in the EU. What are the common threads? And what challenges does one encounter when regulating in areas of rapid technological change?

European Competition Law and Economics Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance (UU) This course deals with the effects of European Competition Law on the behavior of businesses in the European Union (EU). An effective common market within the EU requires a fair and undistorted competition. Hence, the European Commission (EC) vigorously attacks cartels. A recent example is the ‘cooperation’ between seven international groups of companies – Chungwa, LG Electronics, Philips, Samsung SDI, Panasonic, Toshiba, MTPD (currently a Panasonic subsidiary) and Technicolor (formerly Thomson) – which fixed prices, shared markets, allocated customers between themselves and restricted their output. In this case the European Commission imposed a total fine of € 1.47 billion in 2012. Dr. E.S.

Understanding and Managing Mergers and Acquisitions Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance (UU) Many executives say they use Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) as a means to consolidate or expand the market position of their firm or increase its productive efficiency. Most mergers and acquisitions, however, fail to create value, leading to the so-called ‘merger paradox’. By adopting a multidisciplinary and institutional perspective, this course aims to increase the understanding of merger determinants and effects, discusses key topics for value creation, and concludes with policy assessments. On the last day the students will participate in a negotiation training workshop and will present their papers on a major M&A transaction in their home country. Prof. Dr. Wilco J.

International, European and Domestic Water Law

Law and Economics of Transport by the Sea

Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance (UU)

Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance (UU)

We need water to survive. Water is used to drink, for agriculture (irrigation), as source of power and means of transportation (rivers). To avoid water wars, we need to regulate our use of (shared) water courses. To protect the waters for future generations, we need to ensure their sustainable exploitation and management. Law is the tool to achieve this. In this course, we will introduce the participants to all levels of water governance: the international, regional (EU), and domestic level.

Do you want to know what the economic impact is of transport by sea or the financial consequences of an oil spill from a damaged oil tanker? What is the liability of the owner and the captain of the Costa Concordia after it was wrecked in 2012? Do you know what it takes to manage the largest port of Europe? And what about the electricity transport from Windfarms in the sea to the shore? If you are studying public law of the sea, this is your chance to learn about the other (commercial) law of the sea!

Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance (UU)

n SPECIAL TRACKn Water is vital to life. Crucially, the oceans play a key role in some of the most important economic activities, including transport. In fact, most of international trade is seaborne. The two-week course is designed for those individuals interested in the economics and law of the sea. The focus in week one is on the law and economics of transport by sea. In week two, the international legal regime of the oceans will be presented in a general sense, focusing on various aspects other than transportation. Prof. Dr. Wilco J.

Oceans are essential for maintaining life on earth. Their resources are increasingly important to the world economy; 90% of international trade is seaborne. The current regime for the oceans is built on the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea of 1982 (UNCLOS). This framework convention divides the oceans in coastal state maritime zones and international areas. In all these areas the legal regime seeks to maintain a balance between the rights, interests and obligations of individual states and the international community’s interests. In this course, an intro is provided to the law that regulates the oceans.

Science

Geometry is the theory of space. ‘Space’ is a multifaceted concept: it refers equally well to the phase space of a classical mechanical system, the differential-geometrical space of general relativity or the operator-theoretic space of quantum mechanics from physics, as to the internet as a huge graph of connections. The summer course on Geometry, which is organized by the Utrecht Geometry Centre, aims to cover a spectrum of modern Geometry as broad as possible, as well their interaction with neighboring fields such as logic, Lie and number theory and physics.

Introduction to Complex Systems Faculty of Science (UU) Our world has an abundance of so-called complex systems. These are typically large collections of connected elements that influence each other. Examples are the brain; society; traffic; the financial system; interacting institutions; climate; ecosystems; interacting atoms or molecules; the World Wide Web. These diverse examples have surprisingly many features in common. As a rule, they show various properties that make a complex systems more than the sum of their parts. In this course, we combine examples across physics, the life sciences, socioeconomic sciences and humanities with an introduction to basic mathematical tools to learn a complex systems way of thinking.

Business Process Management and IT

Observing Primate Behaviour

Information and Communication Technology (HU)

The summer course Observing Primate Behaviour focuses on getting familiar with primate observational methods by observing primate social behaviour and following the scientific cycle. Through the (statistical) analysis of gathered observational data, students answer and present their own research questions. Furthermore, the additional activities aim to provide the students with more background information on the different topics related to studying primate behaviour, such as welfare, colony management and fieldwork.

This course will provide both theoretical background and hands-on experience with business process management (BPM), improvement and innovation. On the one hand it is important for organizations to have grip on their processes, and to continually evaluate and improve their processes in an evolutionary way; Information Technology (IT) can play a supporting role in this. On the other hand innovative IT can play a disruptive role for businesses. In this course both aspects will be illustrated and discussed.

Faculty of Science (UU)

Typed functional programming languages allow for the rapid development of robust programmes. This course explores some of the more advanced language features of Haskell, a state of the art functional programming language, together with some of its theoretical background. The course aims to teach not only the more advanced Haskell features, such GADTs or type families, but also the underlying theory. Besides the lectures, there are numerous supervised lab sessions to help you come to grips with the material covered in class.

Discoveries in the biological sciences increasingly require combining sophisticated technologies, quantitative measurements, and theoretical approaches such as bioinformatics, mathematical modelling and computer simulations. Hence, modern Life Sciences research faces the challenge to integrate different scientific disciplines and foster collaborative projects between biologists, chemists, physicists, computer scientists and mathematicians to make biology a quantitative natural science discipline. This course gives you a one week introduction into the approaches and research questions in this modern field of ‘quantitative biology’ We aim at students having completed a bachelor program in any of the sciences with a genuine interest in interdisciplinary work.

With this course you will not only obtain insight in how science really works, but more importantly, you will acquire knowledge on how to be a successful translational researcher yourself. This course is specifically not about learning how to 'play the game', but about understanding that there is a game going on, what the rules of the game are and to be able to transcend it. You will be informed about the latest developments in translational medicine, inspired by rare diseases, and you will develop professional skills that are essential to becoming a translational researcher.

Our summerschool is aimed at advanced master students and starting PhD students with the goal to teach them on recent advances in neural circuit development and plasticity from an interdisciplinary perspective. This will be achieved in three ways: first, lectures on basic neurobiological principles by the organizers, second, a series of lectures by renowned international speakers and third, participants work on assignments that require extensive discussion between lecturers, organizers and participants. Our goal is to inspire young scientist at an early stage of their career by providing them with new insights, provocative thoughts and a networks of peers.

Pharmacoeconomics

3D Printing and Biofabrication

Faculty of Science (UU)

Faculty of Medicine (UU)

Today's society is confronted with ever increasing health care costs. One of the factors in these rising costs are 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 aims to provide a neutral scientific approach to this challenge. This course provides a broad perspective of the field of health economics (specific pharmacoeconomics), including a variety of subjects from views of the different stakeholders to more in depth methodological approaches, illustrated with examples and exercises.

Additive manufacturing (3D printing) uses a layer-bylayer principle for manufacturing.

Introduction to Generative Syntax

Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences (UU)

Faculty of Humanities (UU)

If you already know how to analyze your data in Mplus, but want to learn more about what you are actually doing, or if you want to know more about advanced longitudinal analyses, this course is for you. The course consists of in-depth lectures on the fundamentals of Mplus and advanced longitudinal models. Unique of this year's course is the one-day workshop with guest lecturers Bengt Muthén and Tihomir Asparouhov (from Mplus), and the Mplus users meeting as the closing day of the course.

In this course, students will be introduced to 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 complex system underlying sentence structure and sentence meaning. The theory accounts for the creativity of human language, the characteristic that makes it unlike the communication system of any other animal. Topics covered will include the major concepts used to analyze linguistic phenomena, such as phrase structure, movement, binding, and logical form.

Introduction to L1 and L2 Acquisition

Bilingualism

Faculty of Humanities (UU)

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.

This course starts from the introduction of young children acquiring their native language (L1). Then it explores the acquisition of a second language (L2) after their childhood. Major issues, such as critical period, in L2 acquisition will be discussed. The course covers the development of phonemes, syllable structures, stress, intonation and words both in Li and L2. The acquisition of a variety of languages will be presented. During this course, students will learn how to analyze L1 and L2 data from literature and corpora.

Psycholinguistics

Evolution of Language

Faculty of Humanities (UU)

Faculty of Humanities (UU)

This course will provide an overview of how psycholinguistic theories have influenced accounts of language disorders and how such disorders in turn have informed linguistic theories. We will focus on developmental disorders of language and reading, such as Specific Language Impairment (SLI) and dyslexia.

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 issues that will be addressed in this course include: uniquely human and/or linguistic; evaluation of core properties of human language from gestural or vocal systems of animal communication; evaluation gradual or saltational and exaptive; the primary function of language as communication or an efficient way of organising cognitive systems.

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.
