Empreendimentos build-to-suit são aqueles em que o locador desenvolve um imóvel sob medida para o locatário, que o ocupará pelo prazo previsto em contrato. Dadas as peculiaridades desse tipo de contrato no contexto do real estate, o objetivo deste artigo é analisar as diferentes origens de recursos (fontes de funding) e a forma como eles são empregados (estruturas de funding) para desenvolver os empreendimentos, e discutir as vantagens e riscos dessas estruturas de funding do ponto de vista do empreendedor, que também é o locador. De forma a desenvolver este estudo e formatar as estruturas de funding apresentadas, parte-se de uma revisão das práticas atuais do mercado imobiliário brasileiro (através de notícias veiculadas na mídia e de prospectos de negócios realizados), da literatura brasileira sobre o tema e do conhecimento gerado no Grupo de Real Estate da Escola Politécnica da USP. De maneira a verificar a validade legal das soluções, é realizada uma checagem com base na legislação brasileira e nas normas da Comissão de Valores Mobiliários. Considera-se fontes de funding aquelas tratadas (1) como equity: capital próprio do empreendedor, capital de parceiros (e sócios) no empreendimento na forma de dinheiro ou imóveis (notadamente...

Ao longo da história, a escola da elite não é a mesma que a do trabalhador. Nos últimos anos, desenvolveram-se inúmeros arranjos familiares e formas de organizar o dia a dia da criança pequena. Diferentes formas e arranjos educacionais retratam e exprimem essa diferença, que reproduz a desigualdade entre as classes. Assim, apesar da grande ampliação do atendimento a partir dos anos 1980, persistiu a oferta de padrões distintos conforme o perfil social dos usuários. O auxílio-creche é um benefício pecuniário conquistado pelos servidores com filhos de menos de sete anos e que não frequentam as creches da USP. Essa pesquisa objetiva investigar o impacto desse auxílio sobre o tipo de atendimento educacional e de cuidado recebido pelas crianças das famílias beneficiárias. Optou-se por uma metodologia qualitativa, na modalidade estudo de caso. Coletou-se e se analisou um conjunto documental que regulamenta o auxílio-creche, bem como os documentos que detalham a relação candidato/vaga/matrícula da Creche Carochinha de Ribeirão Preto, por categoria de usuários, para analisar eventual mudança no perfil da demanda e dos usuários. Aplicou-se um questionário junto a 64 servidores da classe Básico, beneficiários do auxílio...

O novo cenário da macroeconomia e os freqüentes alertas daqueles que estudam o meio ambiente trazem a luz outros fatores que devem ser respeitados num processo de tomada de decisão para qualquer investimento a ser realizado. Neste sentido vem se consolidando o Mercado de Crédito de Carbono no mundo, que se por um lado viabiliza a implantação de um empreendimento por admitir a compensação ambiental, por outro pode viabilizá-lo disponibilizando recursos para a sua instalação e operação. A geração de Crédito de Carbono, isto é, Redução Certificada de Emissões (RCE) e o aporte de recursos no sistema empreendimento em função da negociação dos créditos no Mercado de Carbono, pode se caracterizar em fonte de funding de empreendimentos de geração de energia elétrica no Brasil. Sendo assim, o objetivo desta pesquisa é a montagem de um protótipo de Pequena Central Hidrelétrica - PCH, tendo por base o project finance, enquanto estratégia de investimento e estrutura de negócio e adequado aos padrões do MDL no Brasil visando verificar a viabilidade de utilização das RCEs para compor o funding desses empreendimentos e...

Purpose: The aims of this study were to evaluate the trends in funding, geographic origin, and study types of original articles in the dental implant literature and to investigate the relationships among these factors. Materials and Methods: Articles published in Clinical Oral Implants Research, The International Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Implants, Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research, Implant Dentistry, and Journal of Oral Implantology from 2005 to 2009 were reviewed. Nonoriginal articles were excluded. For each article included, extramural funding source, geographic origin, and study type were recorded. Descriptive and analytic analyses (alpha = .05), including a logistic regression analysis, and chi-square test were used where appropriate. Results: of a total of 2,085 articles published, 1,503 met the inclusion criteria. The most common source of funding was from industry (32.4%). The proportion of studies that reported funding increased significantly over time. Europe represented the highest percentage (55.8%) of published articles. Most of the articles reported on clinical studies (49.9%), followed by animal studies (25.9%). Articles from Asia and South America and animal and in vitro studies were significantly more likely to be funded. Conclusion: Almost half of the original dental implant articles were funded. The trend toward internationalization of authorship was evident. A strong association was observed between funding and geographic origin and between funding and study type. Most studies in North America and Europe were clinical studies and supported by industry...

This paper analyses the effects of public funding of higher education on the welfare of the different agents. It takes into account the hierarchical nature of the educational system and also the fact that parents always have the possibility to complement basic public education with private expenditures in individual tutoring. It is obtained that although public funding implies a larger access to higher education it is always the case that some of the agents that gain access lose in welfare terms. Moreover, it is shown that the marginal agent to access university would always prefer a pure private funding system. Thus, when studying the effects of public funding of higher education, we can not identify gaining access to University with an increase in welfare. Finally, I consider a funding system where only those that send their o¤spring to university support the funding of higher education.

This dissertation illuminates the funding contexts that structured art music composition in interwar France. While music historiography tends to focus solely on patronage - an ill-defined and limited category - as the paradigmatic economy within which pre-paid composition takes place, I bring patronage into conversation with other, similarly enabling funding sources: publishing, radio, film, orchestras, and ballet companies. Through a series of case studies of the individuals, institutions, and practices that provided a market for interwar French art music, I pursue two central ideas: first, that musical works, genres, and styles present sonic traces of the economic forces that structured their composition, and second, that the funding context of music often determines its historiographical reception. The rich musical landscape of interwar France provides a unique setting through which to explore these ideas. Between a remarkable flowering of artistic movements, the rapid proliferation of new media for cultural expression, and steadily increasing institutional involvement in music composition and performance, we can observe a remarkable context of wealth and power exerting a significant impact on the practices of music composition and performance. In order to theorize patronage in the broader context of funding for music composition...

Background: Research investments are essential to address the burden of disease, however allocation of limited resources is poorly documented. We systematically reviewed the investments awarded by funding organisations to UK institutions and their global partners for infectious disease research. Methodology/Principal Findings Public and philanthropic investments for the period 1997 to 2010 were included. We categorised studies by infectious disease, cross-cutting theme, and by research and development value chain, reflecting the type of science. We identified 6165 funded studies, with a total research investment of UK £2.6 billion. Public organisations provided £1.4 billion (54.0%) of investments compared with £1.1 billion (42.4%) by philanthropic organisations. Global health studies represented an investment of £928 million (35.7%). The Wellcome Trust was the leading investor with £688 million (26.5%), closely followed by the UK Medical Research Council (MRC) with £673 million (25.9%). Funding over time was volatile, ranging from ∼£40 million to ∼£160 million per year for philanthropic organisations and ∼£30 million to ∼£230 million for public funders. Conclusions/Significance: Infectious disease research funding requires global coordination and strategic long-term vision. Our analysis demonstrates the diversity and inconsistent patterns in investment...

Equitable and Inclusive Education for All? Public Funding for Denominational Schools in Ontario

Roman Catholic separate schools’ denominational right to receive public funding is a contentious issue in Ontario’s educational system. Ontario’s publicly funded denominational schools historically served a purpose at Confederation; however, in light of Ontario’s evolving demographics, publicly funding denominational schools today may no longer serve the needs of Ontario. The research problem in this study is expressed through growing problems reconciling Roman Catholic schools with diversity and current public views. Additionally, recent tensions, public views, and political consensus suggest it is time to revisit the existing policy. In order to understand both the history of denominational schools and the present context, this study conducted II policy analyses as its research design by completing 2 policy cycles. The first policy cycle determined that based upon Upper and Lower Canada’s pre-Confederation diversity, extending public funding to denominational schools at Confederation was an effective way of protecting minority rights; however, the analysis in the second policy cycle; which examined how equitable and inclusive denominational schools are today, concluded that the denominational school system no longer serves the diversity and equity needs of contemporary Ontario. Building on these findings...

This paper examines the implications of bank activity and short-term funding strategies for bank risk and returns using an international sample of 1,334 banks in 101 countries leading up to the 2007 financial crisis. Expansion into non-interest income generating activities such as trading increases the rate of return on assets, and it may offer some risk diversification benefits at very low levels. Non-deposit, wholesale funding, by contrast, lowers the rate of return on assets, although it can offer some risk reduction at commonly observed low levels of non-deposit funding. A sizeable proportion of banks, however, attract most of their short-term funding in the form of non-deposits at a cost of enhanced bank fragility. Overall, banking strategies that rely prominently on generating non-interest income or attracting non-deposit funding are very risky, which is consistent with the demise of the U.S. investment banking sector.

This paper provides new evidence on the factors affecting protracted credit contraction in the wake of the global financial crisis. The paper applies panel vector autoregressions to a global panel that consists of quarterly data for 41 countries for the period 2000-2011 and documents that domestic private credit growth is highly sensitive to cross-border funding shocks around the world. This relationship is significantly stronger in Central and Eastern Europe, a region with considerably stronger foreign presence, higher cross-border funding, and elevated loan-to-deposit ratios compared with the rest of the world. The paper shows that high foreign ownership per se does not appear to explain credit response differences to foreign funding shocks. Rather, there is a stronger response in countries that exhibit high loan-to-deposit ratios and a high reliance on foreign funding relative to local deposits. The results suggest that funding model differences were at the heart of the post-crisis credit contraction in several Central and Eastern European countries. These findings have important regulatory and supervisory implications for emerging countries in Central and Eastern Europe as well as for other countries.

In den letzten fünfzehn bis zwanzig Jahren hat sich die Demokratie- und Menschen­rechts­förderung über nationalstaatliche Grenzen hinweg zu einem der wichtigsten Trends in der Entwicklungspolitik entwickelt. Eine prominente Zielgruppe dieser Politik sind von Beginn an nichtstaatliche Organi­sa­tio­nen. NGOs (non-go­vernmental organizations) erhalten finanzielle und technische Unterstützung durch die internationale Ge­bergemeinschaft, damit sie die demokratische Entwicklung und die Ein­haltung der Menschenrechte in ihren Ländern einfordern und vorantreiben. Die arabische Welt wird in diesem Zusammenhang lange als "Nachzügler" der globalen Demokratisierung betrachtet. Anders als in Osteuropa kommt es hier nicht zu "friedlichen Revolutionen", die eine Transition zu demokra­ti­schen Systemen anstoßen. Zu­nehmend setzt sich die Erkenntnis durch, dass sich die dortigen autori­tä­ren Regime als dauerhaft und stabil erweisen, während die langjährige Politik der Demokratie­för­de­rung bisher erfolglos bleibt. An diesem Punkt setzt die Fragestellung der vorliegenden Arbeit an. Wie kommt es zu dieser Erfolglosig­keit der externen Demokratieförderung? Was geschieht mit den Fördermitteln und Förderprogrammen in den arabischen Ländern...

The report presents a quantitative analysis of Australian Research Council funded projects involving collaboration with European countries. Key findings are considered within the context of increasingly 'knowledge based' economies and the increasing globalisation of scientific research and development. This report identifies significant issues and makes recommendations which represent the preliminary stages of science and innovation policy development in Australia. Modern economies are based on knowledge and skills developed through the science and innovation system A high quality science and innovation system is crucial in maintaining and developing a strong and competitive national economy, social wellbeing and environmental sustainability. Economies world wide are continuing to grow and become more reliant on the consolidation of knowledge and skills. International collaboration is a key in developing and maintaining a strong science and innovation system In order to achieve a quality and competitive science and innovation system countries need to share and mutually build upon available skills and knowledge through international collaborative research and development. Australia accounts for only around two percent of the world's science and technology output...

Artists have always been reliant on the generosity of arts patrons, but in more recent times, has taken on this patronage role . Since the establishment of federal funding for the arts, government funding has become a source upon which have become increasingly reliant. The Australian Government's support for the cultural sector amounts to nearly four billion dollars annually. In the Australian Capital Territory, we are fortunate to have a vibrant and active arts community, with one of the highest consumer rates of the arts per capita. The Canberra community enjoys access to a rich and diverse arts sector. Artists who choose to stay and practice here are oft en internationally renowned, and there is a range of amateur, pro-amateur, professional , individual and community based art projects existing in this city . The ACT Government's public funding program provides support for the local cultural sector, put into effect through the Arts and Cultural Services Branch. This is done through matching the allocation of funding with those projects most likely to contribute to the arts development strategy of the ACT Government. This development strategy is Arts Capital - a policy document developed by the ACT Government, which provides a cultural vision of the future for this city. It is essential that applicants funded through the program address the criteria that are laid out in Arts Capital. One of the most successful categories of the arts funding programs is the Chief Minister's Creative Arts Fellowships. The Fellowships are awarded to successful mid-career artists living and working in the ACT. To complete this research I examined the acquittals and interviewed the recipients of this award from a period of 1998 - 2001...

In February 2012, the Australia Government released a report, "Review of Funding for Schooling", known as the Gonski Review. This review outlines the current challenges Australia is facing in its education system, including declining educational outcome, student performance inequality, inefficient funding system etc. More importantly, the panel of this review proposes a new funding model with an aim to promote excellent educational outcome. This research report summarises the main ideas in the Gonski Review, describing the characteristics in Australia's schooling system and the details on the new funding model. It also attempts to evaluate the new funding models and the recommendation made by the panel in the Review. It is suggested that the new funding model in the Gonski Review provides a solid framework to help the students with disadvantage backgrounds and may help to narrow down the uneven performance of students between public and private schools. However, the Gonski Review is not able to explain why spending more money in the educational system would necessarily lead to better educational outcome. Moreover, the Gonski Review fails to provide a clear picture of how the extra funding should be spent. By investigating the educational success in other three high performing countries...

Community organisations are a vital part of the Canberra Community that work to ensure basic human rights and set an acceptable standard of living for those in the community. Community organisations take on a majority of the community service responsibilities in the ACT illustrating the merits behind the provision of services via a community-based method as opposed to delivering services directly from the government. Additionally, community organisations provide a number of job opportunities in Australia, employing over half a million people in 2009. In 2005, the community service sector added substantially to the economy of Australia contributing approximately 3 per cent to the GDP. Aside from the social and economic arenas, community organisations also play a large role in increasing political participation of the community via lobbying, events, and the sharing of knowledge. Community organisations use funding models in order to run effectively and efficiently and to allocate resources in the most beneficial way. The main ways that community organisations receive funding include applying for tax exemptions, appealing for funds, obtaining a grant from government, foundations, or corporations and through earning funds from trading activities. Currently in the ACT...

How resources are being used to fund the community response to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) is of considerable interest to the donor community and governments. In the past decade, international funding for the HIV and AIDS response provided by governments rose from about US$1 billion to US$8.7 billion; donors increasingly shifted their financial support toward funding community responses to this epidemic. Yet little is known about the global magnitude of these resource flows and how funding is allocated among HIV and AIDS activities and services. Although some studies have been carried out to gather information on the community response by civil society organizations (CSOs), most of them provide only partial information limited to a specific intervention (for example, orphan support) or specific local communities. To address this knowledge gap, the report attempts to answer the following questions: How large is donor funding for community-based interventions that are run by either large nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) or smaller community-based organizations (CBOs)? How do the funds reach various types of CSOs? What are CSOs' other sources of funding...

Esse trabalho, tendo como referência a trajetória do Ensino Médio brasileiro nos últimos 16 anos, destaca os limites do financiamento público à edificação do Ensino Médio Integrado. Apoiando-se em uma literatura sobre o Ensino Médio e a Educação Profissional que defende a escola unitária, analisam-se dados concernentes à última etapa da Educação Básica, particularmente das escolas das redes estaduais. Argumenta-se que a intervenção do governo federal brasileiro no financiamento da Educação é um grande obstáculo à efetivação do Ensino Médio Integrado, uma vez que, independentemente do viés ideológico ou do pertencimento partidário daquele que dirige a nação, não se tem colocado essa etapa da Educação Básica como prioridade no raio do financiamento estatal. Registra-se a hegemonia das escolas estaduais na oferta do Ensino Médio e o aumento nas quais há a integração entre o Ensino Médio e a Educação Profissional. Por último, afirma-se que embora o FUNDEB represente uma ação que contemple o Ensino Médio como alvo do financiamento público dos estados, não gerará recursos suficientes para garantir o financiamento da última etapa da Educação Básica, principalmente na modalidade integrada à Educação Profissional. Conclui-se defendendo uma modificação do papel do governo federal no financiamento do Ensino Médio...

The motivation behind this report is to evaluate and respond to past and current decision pathways employed for determining state allocation of the Environmental Quality Incentives Program [EQIP] funding under the Natural Resource Conservation Service [NRCS]. We work to provide justifiable recommendations for how the allocation of EQIP dollars might be improved, especially as it pertains to improving equity among those states with the highest priority needs. In this project, we worked with our client, a Program Analyst at the North Carolina NRCS office, to tailor our recommendations to the specific concerns of one state. Our client’s specific concern was that North Carolina has historically been positioned lower in the national ranking of EQIP funding that it receives as compared to many other large agricultural states. We reviewed the history of EQIP, examined the past and current decision pathways used to determine federal allocation of conservation dollars to state NRCS offices, conducted interviews among NRCS staff, and quantitatively analyzed the funding allocation process. We provide scenarios for how it might be possible for a state like North Carolina to increase its allocation of EQIP funding and attain better conservation on identified lands of highest priority. In this project...

We work to provide justifiable recommendations for how the allocation of EQIP dollars might be improved, especially as it pertains to improving equity among those states with the highest priority needs. The distribution mechanism of federal EQIP funding to each state has received significant criticism in the past. The criticism stems primarily from the usage of a weighted factor formula that has been thought to unfairly favor certain states over others. Beyond questions of equity, there have also been more fundamental concerns over the quality of data inputted into the funding formula. In this project, we worked with our client, a Program Analyst at the North Carolina NRCS office, to tailor our recommendations to the specific concerns of one state. Our client’s specific concern was that North Carolina has historically been positioned lower in the national ranking of EQIP funding that it receives as compared to many other large agricultural states.

Poster presented at the CRIS2012 Conference.-- Full conference programme available at: http://www.cris2012.org/findByFilter.do?categoryId=1158; In 1996 a group of German research consultants declared their need to develop a common research funding information system. With the help of DFN e.V. and the German Ministry for Research a software development was initiated. Two years later GMD and Ruhr University Bochum published the first version of an Electronic Research Funding Information System (ELFI), a very modern java-based internet-program. After two phases of evaluation, the research funding consultants tested the software and defined further criteria leading step by step to an amelioration.; Nowadays ELFI provides information for more than 120 customer institutions throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland with more than 12,000 individual user accounts.; ELFI collects information about research funding from the World Wide Web with the help of software-robots. Relevant web sites are observed regularly for news and changes among research funding programs and their calls. As a result these changes can be discovered easily and communicated to the ELFI user subsequently.; The ELFI data model corresponds to some parts of the CERIF data model. We want to show how we connect to some entities and attributes of CERIF...
