Stakeholder Pressures, CSR Practices, and Business Outcomes in Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands

Furrer, Olivier ; Holtbrügge, Dirk

In: European Journal of International Management (EJIM), 2018, vol. 12, no. 4, p. 472-500

This cross-country study investigates the antecedents and outcomes of corporate social and environmental responsibility (CSER) practices. Based on institutional theory and stakeholder theory we conducted an empirical study among 519 firms in Denmark, Germany, and the Netherlands. We found evidence supporting a significant positive relationship between stakeholder pressures, CSER practices,...

The Impact of Response Measures on COVID-19-Related Hospitalization and Death Rates in Germany and Switzerland

Huber, Martin ; Feuerriegel, Stefan

In: Swiss Journal of Economics and Statistics, 2020, vol. 156, no. 10, p. 1-19

We assess the impact of the timing of lockdown measures implemented in Germany and Switzerland on cumulative COVID-19-related hospitalization and death rates. Our analysis exploits the fact that the epidemic was more advanced in some regions than in others when certain lockdown measures came into force, based on measuring health outcomes relative to the region-specific start of the epidemic...

Cross-border emergence of clonal lineages of ST38 Escherichia coli producing the OXA-48-like carbapenemase OXA-244 in Germany and Switzerland

Falgenhauer, Linda ; Nordmann, Patrice ; Imirzalioglu, Can ; Yao, Yancheng ; Falgenhauer, Jane ; M.Hauri, Anja ; Heinmüller, Petra ; Chakraborty, Trinad

In: International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents, 2020, vol. 56, no. 6, p. 106157

Background: Carbapenemase-producing Gram-negative bacteria cause infections that are difficult to treat and represent a rising threat to healthcare systems worldwide. This study analysed isolates of Escherichia coli (E. coli), a species associated with nosocomial-acquired and community-acquired infections, from hospitals in Germany and Switzerland exhibiting a slight decrease in...

Cross-border emergence of Escherichia coli producing the carbapenemase NDM-5 in Switzerland and Germany

Chakraborty, Trinad ; Sadek, Mustafa ; Yao, Yancheng ; Imirzalioglu, Can ; Stephan, Roger ; Poirel, Laurent ; Nordmann, Patrice

In: Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 2020, p. -

A series of clinical NDM-5-producing E. coli isolates obtained from two surveillance networks of carbapenem-producing Enterobacterales from 2018-2019, namely Switzerland (NARA) and Germany (SurvCARE), were analyzed. The 33 NDM-5- producing E. coli isolates were highly resistant to β-lactams including the novel ß- lactam/ß-lactamase inhibitor combinations (ceftazidime/avibactam, ...

A new species of the large-headed coastal marine turtle Solnhofia (Testudinata, Thalassochelydia) from the Late Jurassic of NW Switzerland

Anquetin, Jérémy ; Püntener, Christian

In: PeerJ, 2020, vol. 8, p. e9931

Background: The large-headed turtle Solnhofia parsonsi is known by a handful of specimens from the Late Jurassic of Germany and Switzerland (maybe also France). Solnhofia parsonsi is traditionally regarded as a “eurysternid” Thalassochelydia, a group of small to medium sized, mostly lagoonal or marginal turtles found almost exclusively in the Late Jurassic of Europe. More recently,...

Turbinage des eaux usées du Haut-Plateau de Crans-Montana

Musolla, Marie ; Münch-Alligné, Cécile (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute Ecole d'Ingénierie, 2019.

Le présent projet a pour but d’étudier la faisabilité et la rentabilité d’une centrale de turbinage sur le réseau des eaux usées du Haut-Plateau de Crans-Montana. Après avoir étudié l’état de l’art dans le domaine du turbinage des eaux usées et listé les installations existantes dans le monde avec les solutions technologiques installées, le potentiel hydraulique de ce...

Genetic structure of the endemic Papaver occidentale indicates survival and immigration in the Western Prealps

Pittet, Loïc ; Fragnière, Yann ; Grünig, Sandra ; Bétrisey, Sébastien ; Clément, Benoît ; Gerber, Emanuel ; Ronikier, Michał ; Kozlowski, Gregor ; Parisod, Christian

In: Alpine Botany, 2020, p. -

Climatic oscillations of the Quaternary rapidly compelled plant species to shift their geographical range. How alpine plant species responded to climate change, however, remains elusive and remnants of the cold-adapted flora that currently strive in restricted ranges as small, isolated populations have been particularly overlooked. To address the evolutionary history of such a ‘glacial...

Cold-water coral mound archive provides unique insights into intermediate water mass dynamics in the alboran sea during the last deglaciation

Fentimen, Robin ; Feenstra, Eline ; Rüggeberg, Andres ; Vennemann, Torsten ; Hajdas, Irka ; Adatte, Thierry ; Van Rooij, David ; Foubert, Anneleen

In: Frontiers in Marine Science, 2020, vol. 7, p. -

The Alboran Sea is widely recognized to host numerous cold-water coral ecosystems, including the East Melilla Coral Province. Yet, their development through time and response to climatic variability has still to be fully understood. Based on a combined investigation of benthic foraminiferal assemblages, foraminiferal stable isotope compositions, grain size analysis, sediment geochemistry, and...
