Our Partners


Welcome to Utrecht Summer School I am delighted to present to you the programme of Utrecht Summer School 2015. This year, we will once again be offering, a variety of academic summer courses that differ in subject, level and duration, to students from all over the world. We are proud to present various new and challenging courses. For example, the number of courses offered in the field of Law and Economics has increased considerably. 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 all over the world. International students at Utrecht Summer School will certainly find themselves in good company. In 2014, around 3000 students came to Utrecht to participate in one or more of our courses. With over 110 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 globalised 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

Here we are at the start of the 29th edition of Utrecht Summer School! I am very excited for you to see what the summer school has to offer in 2015. Our course offer is tremendously varied and contains over 200 courses, in all of the university’s faculties and ranging from bachelor to PhD level. Whether you are a PhD student concerned with medicine, a bachelor student with a keen interest in art history, or a student looking to learn the Dutch language and culture; we have a course that suits your needs. Our course offer also contains an international part. Our cooperation ties with university abroad have grown, we are currently working together with universities in Italy, Germany, Russia, China, Costa Rica and more. What better way to study business than to visit the food- and agribusiness on site in Northern Italy? You can study the Renaissance art in Florence and study the behavior of tropical bees than at the National University of Costa Rica. We are also introducing a new course about the last developments in the financial industry, which will partly take place at the International Banking Institute in St. Petersburg (Russia). In a rapidly changing world, the Utrecht Summer School also aims at offering an up-to-date course programme, where important issues such as the Financial crisis or Leadership in Healthcare are thoroughly studied and discussed. Of course, your summer school experience does not have to end after a course of one or two weeks. Consider combining a few courses to truly get a feel for your subject. You can find some of our most 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 generally result in a substantial discount. If you are looking to combine a different set of courses, go ahead and mix and match to create the ideal course package. Utrecht Summer School is not solely about studying. We offer student housing, so that you do not have to worry about finding a place to stay. We also offer an extensive social programme, so that you will easily meet other students. This mix of a varied and academically challenging course offer 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 2014. You can apply online (www.utrechtsummerschool.nl), where you will also find more detailed information on each course. We hope to see you this summer. Drs. Jeroen L.

The Netherlands 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. The Netherlands (Nederland) therefore means ‘low country’. 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 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. The parts of the Netherlands below sea level would be flooded if there were no dikes, dunes and other fortifications. Holland’s relatively small area of slightly over 41,000 square kilometers. With 16.5 million inhabitants a population density of 499 people per km2, the Netherlands is the most densely populated country of the European Union.

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 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 8

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 nonhierarchical 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 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 built at a crossing in the river and was called Traiectum (which means crossing place). In the local language this became Trecht, Uut-Trecht (lower-Trecht) and later Utrecht. At 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 and the HU University of Applied Sciences, 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 true student city.

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. Sitting by the water, you can enjoy a drink or a meal looking over the decorative lit canal.

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.

The Utrecht Summer School started in 1987, with one course: Dutch Culture and Society. In the last two decades, the summer school developed a broad selection of over 200 courses in virtually all disciplines Utrecht University, HU University of Applied Sciences and HKU University of the Arts have on offer. In 2014, Utrecht Summer School attracted almost 3000 students from over 110 different countries; as such it is the largest academic summer

Higher education in the Netherlands The education system in the Netherlands 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. The Netherlands has two main types of higher education. Research universities focus on the independent practice of research-oriented work in an academic or professional setting, while universities of applied sciences are more practicallyoriented, preparing students for specific careers. Within the framework of Utrecht Summer School, Utrecht University, HU University of Applied Sciences and HKU University of the Arts Utrecht offer courses in a wide range of topics on various levels.

Utrecht University (UU) With about 30.000 students, Utrecht University is the largest and the most renowned university in the Netherlands.

The Making of Europe: Rise of Civilization

Faculty of Humanities (UU)

Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore Discover Europe’s roots in this two-weeks course that takes you to the ‘Eternal City’: Rome, Italy. During this course you will make a voyage from Antiquity to the later Middle Ages, highlighting its politics, religious affairs and societal developments. See how these developments are also expressed in magnificent artistic accomplishments on its way. Once the capital of the glorious Roman Empire; then rival to the Florentine Renaissance; birthplace of the Baroque and location of the Vatican, beautiful Rome is in various ways the ancestor of modern Europe. We will be studying Rome´s and Europe´s history from inside and outside the classroom, since many of its iconic places exist still nowadays. We will visit the tangible remains of the Roman era and discover the beautiful (early) churches which were transformed in later times by geniuses like Michelangelo and Bernini and unravel the politics behind these sights and works of art. You will certainly ´experience´ history this way! •••••••••••• course director drs.

The Making of Europe: from Middle Ages to Modernity

Culture

Taking the beautiful city of Utrecht as a starting point, this course will take you on a journey that illuminates the rise of modern Europe from the Middle Ages to the end of the 19th century. We will take the medieval city of Utrecht as a starting point to discuss the history of Europe and explore important political, religious and cultural themes during our lectures and various excursions. This course takes you to some of the most crucial Dutch landmarks of the making of Europe like the Utrecht Cathedral, the wharfs and wealthy canal houses - still testifying to the incredible economic success of Europe in the Golden Age - , whilst the public parks and patrician houses attest to the rising bourgeoisie in the 19th century. Several historical museums in Utrecht, but also the cities of Amsterdam and The Hague are on the agenda, ensuring that you will be able to really ‘experience’ history during these two weeks! •••••••••••• course director Dr. Jaap Verheul level Bachelor credits 4 ECTS 6 – 17 July, 20 -31 July 2015 period location Utrecht fee €1295 Course + course materials + housing


The Making of Europe: The Long 20th Century Freie Universität Berlin (FUBiS) This course will be taught in the thrilling city of Berlin, focusing on the making of Europe from a 20th century perspective. You will not only explore the background and history of the World Wars and the era leading up to it, but you will also be introduced to the Interbellum, the Cold War, and the relations of Europe with Russia and the USA. Several excursions will be organised in which you will visit some of the most iconic German landmarks.

During the 20th century, Europe not just experienced one, but three horrific wars: the First and Second World War and the Cold War that followed in their wake. Oftentimes, the first half of the 20th century has been labelled “The Era of Violence”, and perhaps rightly so. But this century might as well be regarded as an age of rebuilding, transatlantic collaboration, and global connections, thus making the 20th century much more diverse than one might assume. During this course you will gain insight into a variety of historic topics; spanning not only the histories of the three wars, but also topics such as international cooperation and multilateralism, which resulted in international organizations such as the United Nations , the relation of the United States to Europe, the fall of communism and decolonisation. •••••••••••• course director Dr. Jaap Verheul , Dr. Marijke Huisman level Bachelor credits 3 ECTS 03 August – 14 August 2015 period location Utrecht fee €1165 Course + course materials + housing

Business Process Management and IT Information and Communication Technology (HU) Information and Communication Technology (HU) 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. •••••••••••• course director Johan Versendaal Advanced Bachelor level credits 2,5 ECTS period 03 August – 14 August 2015 location Utrecht fee €1150 Course + course materials + housing

Science

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; the climate; an ecosystem; interacting atoms or molecules; the World Wide Web. These diverse examples have surprisingly many features in common. As a rule, they show dynamic properties that are more than the sum of their parts. In this course, we combine examples across physics, the life sciences, socio-economic sciences and humanities with an introduction to basic mathematical tools to learn a complex systems way of thinking. •••••••••••• course director Dr. Debabrata Panja level Advanced Bachelor 1,5 ECTS credits period 24 August – 28 August 2015 location Utrecht fee €350 Course + course materials + housing


Observing Primate Behaviour Faculty of Science (UU) Looking at primates resembles looking at a mirror. Similar to humans, primates are highly social animals with complex social interactions. Relationships of primates are characterized by agonism, affiliation and sex. Understanding their social behaviour requires objective observational methods and careful data analysis. 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 analysis of the gathered observational data, students answer and present their own research question. •••••••••••• course director Prof. dr. E.H.M.

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 an introduction into the approaches and research questions in this modern field of “quantitative biology”. •••••••••••• course director Prof.dr.

Risk is an integral part of life. We take, perceive, ignore and experience risks every day. The Utrecht University Institute for Risk Assessment Sciences (IRAS) investigates risks to human health. Our research focuses on risks related to chemical, biological, and physical agents in the environment, the work place and the food chain. During this two-week residential summer school students will be introduced to the three approaches used in risk assessment: exposure assessment, toxicology (the science of poisons) and epidemiology (the science of public health). •••••••••••• course director Mieke Lumens, PhD level Advanced Bachelor credits 3 ECTS period 17 August – 28 August 2015 location Utrecht fee €890 Course + course materials + housing

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. Assessment of safety and risk management of different drug therapies is done in the framework of observational epidemiological studies (proof of ‘safetyproof’ of ‘effectiveness’). This is the logical next step after randomized clinical trials, which are designed to provide evidence of a drug ‘efficacy’. •••••••••••• course director Dr. Olaf Klungel level Advanced Master credits 0 ECTS period 06 July – 10 July 2015 location Utrecht fee €1150 Course + course materials + housing

Inequity in access to medicines is still a defining characteristic of the global pharmaceutical market place. The aim of the course is to give insight into current developments in pharmaceutical policy making and to give a better understanding of the methods for analysing the effects of policy interventions. As a collaborator, the World Health Organization will provide faculty for several sessions. •••••••••••• course director Dr. Aukje Mantel-Teeuwisse level Advanced Master credits 1,5 ECTS 13 July – 17 July 2015 period location Utrecht €1150 Course + course materials + fee housing

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 an intensive programme covering the following topics: concepts in pharmacoeconomics, pharmacoeconomics and regulatory, transferability of pharmacoeconomic data, the possibilities and limitations of pharmacoeconomics, experiences in HTA around the world. The course is presented in a mix of lectures and exercises. •••••••••••• course director Dr. Anke Hövels, Prof. dr.

In this course students are invited to study trends in digitalization (virtualization) of the workplace in relation to Enterprise Social Media (ESM), to do (literature) research on these topics, to interact with experts from iconic organizations and do some field research there, and to study the concept of Business Case in relation to ESM. •••••••••••• course director Kjell van der Giessen level Advanced Bachelor credits 5 ECTS 13 July – 31 July 2015 period location Utrecht €1400 Course + course materials + fee housing

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. •••••••••••• course director Dr. Maaike Schoorlemmer level Bachelor 0 ECTS credits period 17 August – 21 August 2015 location Utrecht fee €350 Course + course materials + housing
