800x600 PERFORMANCE PLUS: Tools for Enhanced Photovoltaic System Performance. Normal 0 21 false false false NL-BE X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 KU Leuven
This study sets out the mechanisms through which specific employee performance management systems influence well-being and performance of academic employees in universities. In addition, this project aims to examine the role of the leadership as an antecedent of employee performance management system implementation within the research unit
Dynamics of beak movement in Darwin's finches: in search of the biomechanical basis of the trade-off between vocal performance and seed cracking performance Ghent University
Studies of Darwin's finches have provided some of science's most compelling examples of how natural selection can drive phenotypic change. It was recently discovered that species specialized to feed on hard seeds have a decreased ability to conduct rapid changes in beak gape during singing. In turn, this limits their performance in producing dynamically complex songs. As songs of Darwin's finches are used in species recognition and mate ...
Comparative empiric analysis of the performance of compliance mechanisms in the context of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) Ghent University
The objective of proposed research project is to empirically assess the role of the different compliance mechanisms implemented by the EU member states since the Energy Performance of Buildings directive (EPBD) in the collective failure of the member states to meet their targets for improving the energy efficiency of their building stock and how these compliance mechanisms can
When does it pay to be green? New perspectives on the link between environmental regulation, environmental performance and financial performance in the context of the EU ETS. KU Leuven
This research project examines the impact of the European Emission Trading Scheme (EU ETS) on firm performance and green investments. The European Union (EU) launched the EU ETS, which can be considered as the cornerstone of the EU climate policy, in 2005. The EU ETS was the first and is to date the biggest international system for trading greenhouse gas emission allowances, covering almost half of the EU’s greenhouse emissions and operating ...
The use and consequences of subjective performance evaluation in supervisor-employee relationships KU Leuven
Overview of the Four Chapters
To advance the literature on subjective performance measurement, this doctoral project consists of a literature review on this topic (chapter 1) as well as three experimental papers (chapters 2-4). These empirical papers provide better insights and concrete recommendations to organizations on how to design their performance evaluation and rewarding system in order to stimulate employee productivity and goal ...

Towards Virtual NVH Performance Assessment of Tires: Prediction of Dynamic Tire/Road Contact and Hub Forces Using a Fully Predictive Efficient Simulation Approach KU Leuven
Since it is reported that environmental noise has negative effects on the public health in the European Union, the European Commission has set a road traffic noise reduction target of 10 dB(A) by 2020. As a result, vehicle manufacturers are continuously working towards refining their car designs to help reduce traffic noise. Tire/road noise is an important contributor to the overall road traffic noise and can be divided into two categories: ...
