GeMMa Activity Report 2016-2022
Tamara Golob, 2023, proceedings

Abstract: The primary aim of this publication is to support the dissemination of the research achievements of GeMMA Laboratory at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Maribor. It follows the first survey published in 2016, and therefore, the actual book concentrates on the research results since then. The previous book, covering a period of 17 years, presented 35 R&D projects, while the new review of activities over the last 7 years covers as many as 58 projects. This growth is a good cue to introduce the secondary, equally important aim of the book. Namely, we would like to leave the track to our successors to stimulate them for even better research results, to show them, what is possible to achieve in 22 years starting from scratch with the will, hard work, orientation towards the applications, devotion to the research work, and the strong team spirit.
Keywords: research & development projects, geospatial modelling, multimedia, artificial intellingence, algorithms, industrial cooperation, international cooperation

Reviewing the narrative concerning the impact of population growth in Africa
Cocou Marius Mensah, 2019, original scientific article

Abstract: This article discusses the topic of population growth in Africa, a recurring theme in the era of climate change and the fight against CO2 emissions. The African continent is full of essential raw materials and encompasses the youngest population in the world. There is no doubt concerning the significant role it will play in global affairs, at a time when the world population is ageing, according to the UN statistics. In recent years, many policymakers have highlighted the necessity to deal with overpopulation, provoking moral controversial and basic human rights abuses. This article, however, proposes an opposite argumentation based on fresh data and emphasises the opportunities and challenges to take on, as the author considers "overpopulation" as more of a challenge than a sentence to underdevelopment. Though the paper mentions different issues linked to overpopulation, such as migration crisis, ecological sustainability and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, it concludes with a reminder of the importance of international cooperation as a solution to global issues.
Keywords: global issues, impact of population growth, migration trends, international cooperation, pollution, African Union, European Union, UN sustainable development goals, environmental footprint

Dynamic effects of international fragmentation of production : empirical analysis of Slovenian manufacturing firms
Anže Burger, 2009, doctoral dissertation

Abstract: An increasing number of firms outsource peripheral functions in order to stay focused on their core capabilities. This dissertation contributes to a limited body of theoretical and empirical research on the relationship between intermediate inputs offshoring and firm productivity. The main aim of the dissertation is to study the effects of vertical fragmentation on firm productivity. In tight relation to the primary aim, I attempt to provide evidence for the focusing on core capabilities as one of the transmission channels through which imports boost firm productivity. Namely, the main hypothesis of the dissertation states that firms can exploit international outsourcing not only as an efficient means to cutting production costs and enhancing the quality of the inputs, but can use it as a leverage to direct scarce resources on their core business activities. By outsourcing standardized, peripheral components and activities, firms can better concentrate on activities such as research, innovation, sales and marketing, and increase their energies on matters that directly affect competitive positioning.
