P. 13

 The texts grouped under this
theme illustrate research related
to development and the economy:
from women in the workplace, the
risk and survival of small businesses, stock markets, and African markets,
to leadership, new rules for social justice, and developmental states. Each provides a different dimension to the challenges faced by developing regions, in particular. The theme concludes
by shifting to materials science and collaboration with industry in fixing
old industrial equipment and finally, to energy – the demands for sustainable and clean energy, smart grids and integrating renewal energy sources, and the potential to ‘outsmart nature’ by harvesting light.
