Abstract [en]

This study explores whether social innovation may serve as a bridge between participatory policy trends and research traditions when striving for improved societal relevance and impact of research and innovation (R&I). Despite their shared aim of relevance and impact through civic involvement, European R&I policies and participatory action research approaches seldom refer to each other or harness each other’s resources.

The study advances the knowledge regarding how the participatory elements in the policies and research approaches relate through a participatory case study of a joint R&I process to develop a model for social innovation support in Sweden. The case study helps distinguish potential synergies between various degrees of involvement advocated in the policies and research approaches, as well as between the reliance on trending policy concepts vs. scientific notions of validity. Social innovation is perceived as a potential bridge between these elements, as it draws upon participatory academic traditions, while simultaneously tapping into current policy trends of co-creation, in the development of new approaches and solutions to societal challenges.

Abstract [en]

This study investigates how a design team with researchers and participants from different parts and levels of an organisation may function as a participatory method for socially transformative innovation. The experiences gained by a design team in one of Sweden’s major forestry companies are examined through a participatory, single case study approach, in which researchers and employees jointly developed new insights and ideas. The results reveal that the design team functioned well in terms of channelling the participants’ expertise and experiences into innovative ideas, but less well as regards aligning the latter with the company’s regular management procedures, thus reducing the function of the design team to an abstract symbol of organisational ‘modernity’, rather than an effective instrument for social transformation.

Abstract [en]

In order to expand the knowledge on how societal impact of social sciences and humanities (SSH) can be enhanced through public funding of research and innovation, a process of designing digitalised tools for inclusive funding is scrutinised, involving four Swedish funding agencies and an Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) of SSH researchers. The agencies shared the challenge to attract a broader range of SSH researchers to apply for their funding. Excluding and including mechanisms were identified in the interactions, texts and images of the formulation, communication and processing of calls for funding. The developed tools digitally guide the user through queries regarding the present and potential diversity of SSH representation among applicants, reviewers, agencystaff, etc. and regarding the formulation and communication of call texts, assessmentcriteria and reviewer instructions. The tools thus enhance SSH impact by making funding more available, but fail to demonstrate how concrete interaction with societal actors may enhance this.

Abstract [en]

By investigating the occurrence of place innovative synergies between retail and tourism in a small-sized Swedish city, this article advances knowledge on how city center attractiveness can be enforced in a rural context with competing online shopping and suburban/out-of-town shopping centers. Previous studies of city center attractiveness, place innovation, and social innovation help distinguish innovative intertwinement of correlated trends of experiencing retail and retailing experiences, augmenting customer experiences through place-based characteristics. Interviews, workshops, and participatory observations with entrepreneurs, business promoters, and municipality representatives reveal three dimensions of place innovative synergies in city center attractiveness: 1) innovative variance in city center retail and tourism, 2) innovative interwovenness between the city center identity and its configuration, content, and communication, and 3) innovative interaction between retailers and tourism entrepreneurs in city center events. A key question is whether synergies in temporal events and everyday commerce are sufficiently combined, in order to engender encompassing renewal.

Abstract [sv]

Ett annat perspektiv på hållbarhet är att synliggöra och ta vara på en plats befintliga och unika värden. Johanna Balogh, Kristina Johansson, Helena Karlberg, Malin Lindberg och Helena Karlberg utgår i kapitlet Platsinnovativa synergier för attraktiva stadskärnor från tidigare forskning om platsinnovation, som är ett begrepp och koncept för att förstå och planera nytänkande helhetsutveckling av attraktiva städer, besöksmål och andra sorters platser. Här är Kiruna och Piteå i fokus, och frågan hur kommuner, näringsliv och andra nyckelaktörer aktivt kan skapa upplevelser genom att väva samman stadens olika komponenter, processer och intressenter på ett nytänkande sätt.

Abstract [sv]

I strävan efter att locka och behålla besökare, invånare, företagare och investerare har attraktivitet och innovativitet hamnat högt upp på agendan för Sveriges stadskärnor. Platsunika upplevelser och kvaliteter har visat sig vara centrala för att människor ska vilja vistas, verka och bo på en viss plats. De kan ta avstamp i platsens atmosfär, historia, kultur, natur, geografi med mera och skapas ofta genom ett nytänkande samspel mellan platsens olika komponenter, processer och intressenter. Sådana ”platsinnovativa synergier” omfattar bland annat ett samspel mellan platsens gestaltning, innehåll och marknadsföring. Det vill säga mellan platsens fysiska utformning (t ex byggnader, parker, torg), tjänster och aktiviteter (t ex shopping, restauranger, kultur, fritid) och kommunikation (t ex profilering, kampanjer, skyltning). Det omfattar även synergier mellan platsens olika målgrupper (t ex potentiella invånare, besökare, företagare och investerare), samhällssektorer (offentlig, privat, ideell sektor), branscher (t ex handel, besöksnäring, kultur, industri, IT) och utvecklingsprocesser (t ex stadsplanering, näringslivsutveckling, destinationsdesign). Det innebär att befintliga stuprör mellan och inom olika organisationer, professioner och verksamhetsområden behöver överbryggas. I projektet ”Attraktiv stadskärna genom platsinnovativa synergier” har forskare, kommuner, föreningar, företagare och företagsfrämjare gemensamt utforskat befintliga och potentiella synergier i Piteås och Kirunas stadskärnor.

Abstract [sv]

Social innovation handlar om nyskapande processer och lösningar för ökad inkludering och välmående inom arbetsliv, hälsa, utbildning och andra välfärdsrelaterade områden. Det kan vara nya metoder, produkter eller samarbeten där samhällsnytta och social förändring är det främsta syftet. Social innovation angriper komplexa samhällsutmaningar såsom arbetslöshet, segregation eller ohälsa. Akademikerförbundet SSR:s initiativ till universell utformning av arbetsplatser, som den här rapporten handlar om, är ett exempel på en social innovation för att fler ska kunna inkluderas och utvecklas i arbetslivet. Forskning om social innovation handlar om vad som utvecklas, var det utvecklas, varför det utvecklas och hur det utvecklas. Studier visar bland annat att en social innovation behöver vara användbar, tillgänglig och meningsfull för både målgruppen och sammanhanget för att förnyelsen ska bli hållbar. De visar också att de människor som direkt berörs av förändringen behöver involveras aktivt i processen. Genom att förstå samhällsutmaningen utifrån dessa människors erfarenheter och perspektiv kan den sociala innovationen komma åt dess grundorsaker, i stället för att bara motverka symptomen. Forskningen visar även att värdet av en social innovation uppstår när olika nytänkande pusselbitar sammanlänkas till en hel förnyelseprocess.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to advance knowledge about the mechanisms behind, and the implications of, varying involvement in digitally enhanced employee-driven innovation (EDI) by studying how a firm integrates a web-based tool in the organization of its EDI process. Design/methodology/approach: Based on a qualitative in-depth interview study with managers and employees at one high-performing and one low-performing office of a global IT firm, a critical discourse analysis was performed. It explored how the EDI discourse was produced, distributed and consumed in relation to the web-based tool for collecting and selecting employee ideas. Findings: The results demonstrate that the production of the innovation discourse by the top-level management, which emphasizes client satisfaction rather than employee engagement, restricts the employees’ utilization of the digital platform that distributes the discourse. However, at the high-performing office, employee participation is ensured because the local managers act as co-distributors of the digital tool. Research limitations/implications: The single case study design limits the generalizability of the results, but is nevertheless relevant for understanding the mechanisms and implications in similar contexts where web-based tools are used to enhance EDI processes. Practical implications: The study provides practical insights into the importance of local management’s active promotion of digital tools in order to ensure employee involvement. Originality/value: The study contributes to the EDI literature by identifying some mechanisms behind and the implications of varying employee involvement in digitally enhanced EDI processes.

Abstract [en]

This paper examines a digital employee-oriented innovation program at a global IT-firm. It addresses the research question: how is the generation and promotion of employee ideas organised by the management, and what are the behavioural implications in terms of participation of such an organising? Drawing on the literature on inclusive innovation and employee-driven innovation, the authors explore the extent to which ordinary employees are included in innovative processes at work. The critical discourse analysis of written and spoken text exposes inclusiveness concerning the managements’ production and distribution of innovation discourse in the initial phases of the program. However, the analysis simultaneously reveals considerable excluding elements in the ordinary employees’ consumption of this discourse in its latter phases, particularly regarding the parallel discourses “we are all innovators” and “the single winning entrepreneur”.
