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 [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”.

Abstract [en]

Purpose

In Sweden, gender mainstreaming policies have a long political history. As part of the national gender equality strategy of the Swedish forest industry, the ten largest forestry companies committed themselves to gender mainstream their policies. Limiting the impact of policies and the agency of change, the purpose of this paper is to focus on the varied and conflicting meanings and constitution of the concepts, the problem and, in extent, the organisational realities of gender mainstreaming.

Design/methodology/approach

In both, implementation and practice, gender mainstreaming posse challenges on various levels and by analysing these documents as practical texts from the WPR-approach. This paper explores constructions of gender and gender equality and their implications on the practice and the political of gender mainstreaming in a male-dominated primary industry.

Findings

The results show that the organisations themselves were not constituted as the subject of the policy but instead some of the individuals (women). The subject position of women represented in company policy was one of lacking skills and competences and in the need of help. Not only men and the masculine norms but organisational processes and structures were also generally invisible in the material. Power and conflict were mainly absent from the understanding of gender equality. Instead, consenting ideas of gender equality were the focus. Such conceptualisations of gender equality are beneficial for all risk concealing power structures and thereby limit the political space for change.

Originality/value

By highlighting the scale of policy and the significance of organisational contexts, the results indicate how gender and gender equality are constitutive through the governing technologies of neoliberal and market-oriented ideologies in policy – emphasising the further limiting of space for structural change and politicalization within the male-dominated organisations of Swedish forest industry.

Abstract [sv]

I denna rapport presenteras en genusvetenskaplig analys av Norrbottens handlingsplan för jämställd regional tillväxt 2016-2018. Analysen är utförd inom ramen för Luleå tekniska universitets uppdrag som kunskapsstöd i Region Norrbottens genomförande av handlingsplanen. Syftet med kunskapsstödet är att tillvarata tidigare kunskaper och erfarenheter för att öka handlingsplanens möjligheter att uppnå långsiktigt hållbar förändring av regionens könsmönster utifrån ett intersektionellt perspektiv. Den analys som presenteras här är därmed avsedd som ett underlag för reflektion bland dem som är involverade i genomförandet av planen. Med avstamp i tidigare forskning om könsmönster och insatser för jämställdhet och mångfald i organisationer och samhälle analyseras handlingsplanens mål och aktiviteter. I slutet av rapporten finns en lista med referenslitteratur för den som vill fördjupa sig ytterligare i forskningen.

Abstract [sv]

Norrbottens innovationsstrategi för perioden 2013-2020 syftar till att syftar till att skapa ett innovationsklimat med bästa möjliga förutsättningar för innovation i Norrbotten. Strategin ska bidra till att det blir möjligt för fler människor, organisationer och branscher att utvecklas och bidra till nya eller bättre lösningar som svarar mot behov och efterfrågan. De satsningar som görs med utgångspunkt i strategin ska bidra till en positiv utveckling avseende de horisontella kriterierna jämställdhet, integration och mångfald, miljö samt unga. Mot bakgrund av detta presenteras i denna rapport en analys för att öka lärandet om det horisontella kriteriet jämställdhet i det regionala innovationsarbetet, med målet att identifiera och analysera könsmönster och jämställdhetspotentialer i innovationsstrategin.

Abstract [sv]

Involvering av civilsamhället – dvs medborgare och intresseorganisationer – i forskning och innovation ses i Sverige och EU som ett sätt att öka relevansen, acceptansen, effekten, nyttan, kvaliteten och hållbarheten i både resultaten och processerna. Enligt den så kallade Lamy-rapporten behöver samhället bli ett ”levande laboratorium” där medborgare aktivt deltar i utvecklingen av innovativa lösningar på Europas samhällsutmaningar. I denna rapport kallas detta för ”inkluderande forskning och innovation” och diskuteras utifrån olika logiker, grader, faser och former. Särskilt uppmärksammas den deltagande tradition som vuxit sig stark i Sverige, där akademi och samhälle samverkar i utvecklingen av nya kunskaper och lösningar. Formerna för och omfattningen av involvering kan variera stort mellan olika inriktningar och processer. I den lägsta graden av involvering ger medborgare passivt forskare tillgång till insamling av data, medan de i högre grader av involvering aktivt bidrar till datainsamling och analys. I den högsta graden av involvering medverkar medborgare i hela processen av problemformulering, planering, genomförande och utvärdering. Exempel på konkreta former för involvering är forskningscirklar, dialogseminarier, förändringsledare, Citizen-based suggestions, AIMdays och Science shops. Det finns även flera olika former för inkluderande innovation, som exempelvis Co-labs, Designlabb och Living labs. Där utvecklar forskare och medborgare gemensamt nya lösningar på behov hos människor, organisationer och samhälle. Detta kallas bland annat för deltagande innovation, användardriven innovation och social innovation.

Abstract [en]

Despite the prominent role of norms and values in public education policy and practice social innovation studies have rarely investigated how these are converted into practical transformations in the educational sector. The study therefore aims to provide further insight into the impact of contextualized and materialized norms and values in educational social innovation, using a remodeling process of preschool facilities in a Swedish municipality as an illustrating case study. Seeking to ensure equal and inclusive play, learning and development, the studied process exposes the impact of materialized norms and values on enabling and disabling rooms, furniture and materials in the preschool facilities. As such norms and values impact social transformation process regardless of the contextual specificities, the results may be useful also in other preschools in Sweden and internationally.

Abstract [en]

In order to add to the existing knowledge on the complex institutional dynamics of negotiating conflicts and compatibilities in innovation processes that address societal challenges and social needs, this article scrutinizes the scientific and societal debate on the theoretical and practical application of “social innovation” by means of the concept “boundary object” linked to institutional theory. A participatory case study of the development of an R&I agenda for social innovation in Sweden, formulated through dialog between stakeholders from the public, private and non-profit sectors, is presented. The results show that the unpredictable, emergent, evolving and adaptable character of needs, challenges and solutions in social innovation processes is made more theoretically and practically manageable by acknowledging social innovation as a boundary object. This is since this concept, despite its ambiguous character, helps balance complexity and usefulness in a way that serves to expand existing knowledge on institutional dynamics.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a conceptual study of the gendered perspectives on welfare and diaconia articulated in two recently published policy documents by the Church of Sweden, the Church’s platform for welfare and the Bishop’s letter on diaconia. It distinguishes how social innovation processes in the Church are enhanced or hampered by gendered potentials and delimitations. Such processes are increasingly being perceived as essential to the changing role the Church has in society as a consequence of the formal separation from the Swedish state and the growing importance of civil society organizations (CSOs) as welfare-service providers in Sweden.
