    Energy System Models as a Means of Visualising Barriers and Drivers of Forest-Based Biofuels: An Interview Study of Developers and Potential Users2017In: Sustainability, ISSN 2071-1050, E-ISSN 2071-1050, Vol. 9, no 10, article id 1792Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Forest-derived biofuels have been on the agenda for several decades. Despite extensive research and development efforts, forest biofuel concepts have nevertheless not yet been realized on any significant scale. The discrepancy between the expectations from the research community and the lack of momentum regarding biofuel production raises the question of if and how research results can be used to achieve such goals. Here, we report results from an interview study with the aim of evaluating how energy system models can be used to illustrate barriers and drivers for forest biofuels, with focus on Swedish conditions, using the BeWhere model as case. The study is framed as an example of expertise, and problematizes how energy system models are interpreted among expected users. While the interviews revealed some general scepticism regarding models, and what kinds of questions they can answer, the belief was also expressed that increased complexity might be an advantage in terms of being able to accommodate more barriers against forest biofuels. The study illustrates the complexity of this policy area, where an energy system model can answer some, but never all, ‘what if…?’ questions. The results reveal a need for reformation in energy system modelling in order to more explicitly make society the subject of the work, and also illustrate that the belief in expertise as a tool for consensus-building in decision-making should be questioned.

    Living Lab Research: A State-of-the-Art Review and Steps towards a Research Agenda : Research-in-progress2018In: OpenLivingLab Days 2018 conference, Geneva, Switzerland, 2018, p. 406-421Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite the fact that Living Lab research has been established as a very active research area within both Innovation Management (IM) as well as Information Systems (IS) literature, previous studies still lack consensus about what can be considered as a Living Lab activity and the concept of Living Lab has been interpreted in many different ways. The aim of this research-in-progress paper is to understand the current state of the art in the area of Living Lab research and to identify the key challenges and potential research opportunities within this field. In doing so, a literature review has been conducted, covering 26 studies on Living Lab research in both IS and IM literature. The main findings of this literature review in relation to identified challenges and future research opportunities are summarized in four main themes, namely, theoretical and methodological challenges, governance and process-related challenges, actors’ motivations, needs and expectations and finally ethical challenges. The outcome of this study will thus be a research agenda to further our knowledge about the current challenges and future directions of Living Lab research.

    A Taxonomy of Factors Influencing Drop-Out Behaviour in Living Lab Field Tests2018In: Technology Innovation Management Review, ISSN 1927-0321, E-ISSN 1927-0321, p. 5-21Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of a “living lab” is a relatively new research area and phenomenon that facilitates user engagement in open innovation activities. Studies on living labs show that the users’ motivation to participate in a field test is higher at the beginning of the project than during the rest of the test, and that participants have a tendency to drop out before completing the assigned tasks. However, the literature still lacks theories describing the phenomenon of drop-out within the area of field tests in general and living lab field tests in particular. As the first step in constructing a theoretical discourse, the aims of this study are to present an empirically derived taxonomy for the various factors that influence drop-out behaviour; to provide a definition of “drop-out” in living lab field tests; and to understand the extent to which each of the identified items influence participant drop-out behaviour. To achieve these aims, we first extracted factors influencing drop-out behaviour in the field test from our previous studies on the topic, and then we validated the extracted results across 14 semi-structured interviews with experts in living lab field tests. Our findings show that identified reasons for dropping out can be grouped into three themes: innovation-related, process-related, and participant-related. Each theme consists of three categories with a total of 44 items. In this study, we also propose a unified definition of “drop-out” in living lab field tests.

    Drop-out in living lab field test: analyzing consequences and some recommendations2018In: Twenty-Sixth European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS2018), Portsmouth, UK, 2018, 2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Involving individual users in the process of information systems development is a key dimension of open innovation. Living Labs are socio-technical systems that facilitate information systems development by integrating technical, social and organizational structures and focusing on individuals, tasks, technologies and the interactions between different stakeholders. Testing digital innovations in real-life use context is one of the key components of Living Labs. The users’ motivations to participate in Living Lab field tests at the beginning of the project are usually higher than once the field tests are underway. However, there is a dearth of research on other issues related to participants’ drop-out in Living Lab field tests. This study contributes to the existing literature by investigating the consequences of drop-out in Living Lab field tests and providing recommendations that would facilitate prolonged user engagement. The paper also discusses some ethical considerations regarding involvement of participants within Living Lab field tests. In doing so, we interviewed fourteen Living Lab experts in two Living Labs in Sweden and Belgium. Based on these interviews, we propose a first set of consequences, recommendations and ethical considerations to take into account when setting up Living Lab field tests. Keywords: User

    Clusters as a Take-Off for Glocal Strategies: The Role of Social Capital2016In: Handbook of Social Capital and Regional Development / [ed] Westlund, H. och Larsson, J.P, Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2016, p. 469-491Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter conceptualizes and operationalizes the potential of social capital in the making of sustainable strategies for individual firms in localized clusters as well as for the clusters as collectives. Global competitiveness is created out of local collaboration between firms that to a varying degree are internationalized, thereby building generic ‘glocal’ strategies. These strategies are in turn energized by the individual and collective social capital that originates in the egocentric personal networks of the local firms and the sociocentric personal network that the overall cluster of firms constitutes. The personal ties between firms that build these networks concern business or social exchange or a combination of the two. We inform how these features of network ties can be operationalized to provide a database for comparative studies of localized clusters of firms. The overall localized social capital that the cluster contains is activated through spontaneous self-organizing as well as formal organizing. The interaction between the spontaneous and formal structures turns the cluster into an ‘organizing context’, that is, an enacted environment for the local firms that is co-constructed by themselves. To illustrate how clusters build organizing contexts that accommodate glocal strategies by accumulating and using social capital, we tell the story of a Swedish community (Lammhult) and its firm cluster. This is known as ‘The kingdom of furniture’. The proposed model of personal networking and the illustrated example together inform how local actors may successfully initiate a process that aims at the creation of viable glocal strategies anchored in personal relations and networks. A ‘first mover advantage’ enables the cluster representatives to define what further enforcements external private and public bodies may contribute with.

    Inkluderande forskning och innovation2018Report (Other academic)
    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.

    Promoting and sustaining rural social innovation2017In: European Public & Social Innovation Review, ISSN 2529-9824, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 30-41Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Bringing together conclusions from previous studies of social innovation in rural, local, multi-stakeholder and welfare contexts, this study aims to further develop the scientific insights into the specific mechanisms of rural social innovation, based on a case study of the Swedish part of the European project “Social empowerment in rural areas” (SEMPRE). By analyzing its aims and activities, crucial aspects of rural social innovation are pinpointed in a way that helps discern the main challenges and potentials in promoting and sustaining such innovation. The identified aspects include the identification of urgent societal challenges of rural decline, initiatives to increase the rural attractiveness by innovative forms of social service delivery, empowering mobilization of vulnerable groups, such as rural immigrants, in social service design and delivery, multi-stakeholder involvement of local community actors, as well as participatory workshops to delineate needs/visions, develop solutions to these, and implement the solutions in micro-projects.

    På spaning efter platsinnovativa stadskärnor2019In: Spaning om stadens utveckling: Forskningsrådets spaning 2019 / [ed] Öberg, M., Thufvesson, O., Bergman, B., Malmö: Svenska stadskärnor , 2019, p. 33-35Chapter in book (Refereed)
    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.

    Relating inclusiveness and innovativeness in inclusive innovation2018In: International Journal of Innovation and Regional Development, ISSN 1753-0660, E-ISSN 1753-0679, Vol. 8, no 2, p. 103-119Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The increasing interest in innovative solutions to societal challenges in policy and research has opened up the innovation area for a wider range of participants and beneficiaries than previously acknowledged, which in this article is studied in terms of inclusive innovation. In order to strengthen the conceptual connection between the dawning field of inclusive innovation studies and more established fields within innovation studies, the study scrutinizes how innovativeness relates to inclusiveness and vice versa in the light of previous knowledge. The conceptual outline is applied in a comparative case study of two regional innovation processes in Sweden, that share the ambition to tackle societal challenges by cross-boundary interaction, guided by values of equality and sustainability, at the same time as differing in scope and beneficiaries, due to their industrial and societal orientations. The combined theoretical and practical insights help delineate six distinct links between innovativeness and inclusiveness in inclusive innovation.

    Working life inclusion through social innovation in cultural health2017In: International Journal of Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation, ISSN 2043-8257, E-ISSN 2043-8265, Vol. 4, no 4, p. 324-338Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article scrutinises the development of a socially innovative service concept for cultural health, where approaches from the cultural areas are employed to improve the well-being, life-quality and empowerment among people in long-term unemployment or sick-leave, thus potentially serving to increase the inclusiveness in working life. The study delineates the preconditions for conceptualising, packaging and implementing the concept, in light of previous studies on social innovation and service innovation. The results expose that these preconditions are dependent on the attained social value creation, where target groups and concerned organisations from various societal sectors are actively involved in the identification of needs, in the development of innovative solutions and in the strive for social change on individual, organisational and societal levels. The study thus serves to further expand the field of innovation studies, regarding knowledge on the mechanisms of attaining an inclusive working life.

    Tourism networking for regional place innovation in Swedish Lapland2017In: International Journal of Innovation and Regional Development, ISSN 1753-0660, E-ISSN 1753-0679, Vol. 7, no 4, p. 257-272Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article presents a case study of tourism networking in the regional destination Swedish Lapland, exploring how 'place innovation' can be used as a new scientific and practical concept to study co-innovative development of attractive and sustainable places. Drawing upon previous studies of inclusive innovation, place innovation and tourism destination development, it is distinguished how the networking among the involved entrepreneurs, designers, architects, destination management organisations, business promoters, municipalities, researchers etc., is characterised by negotiations in relation to the main components, target groups and innovation forms of place innovation. These encompass the components of configuration, content and communication, the target groups of visitors, residents and businesses, as well as the innovation forms of service innovation, user-driven innovation and social innovation. The specific set of interacting actors in the studied network made the negotiations result in a prioritisation of the commercial content over the public and civil content, of visitors over residents and businesses, and of service innovation and social innovation over user-driven innovation, affecting the prospects of attaining attractive and sustainable regional destinations.

    Inclusive funding for enhanced impact of social sciences and humanities2019In: fteval Journal for Research and Technology Policy Evaluation, ISSN 1726-6629, no 48, p. 82-87Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Bridging Participatory Policy Trends and Research Traditions through Social Innovation2019In: Technology Innovation Management Review, ISSN 1927-0321, E-ISSN 1927-0321, Vol. 9, no 4, p. 27-36Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Gender-sensitive Business Counselling: Changing the Gendered Pattern and Understanding of Entrepreneurship2017In: Technology, Commercialization and Gender: A Global Perspective / [ed] P. Wynarczyk & M. Ranga, London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2017, p. 141-175Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter compiles existing studies on gender-sensitive business counselling – an increasingly common policy measure in Western economies to increase the number of women entrepreneurs – and compares them with an empirical case to determine components and effects in order to analyse whether this kind of counselling can change the gendered pattern and understanding of entrepreneurship. Eight components and three effects are distinguished, some of which are specific to gender-sensitive business counselling, while others are similar to general counselling methods, requiring symmetrical relations between counsellor and client and the client’s active role in order to contribute to changes in the gendered pattern and understanding of entrepreneurship.

    Place Innovative Synergies for City Center Attractiveness: A Matter of Experiencing Retail and Retailing Experiences2019In: Urban Planning, ISSN 2183-7635, Vol. 04, no 01, p. 91-105Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Design teams: A participatory path to socially transformative innovation?2019In: Forskning & Forandring, ISSN 2535-5279, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 25-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Socially Innovative Remodelling Of Preschool Facilities2018In: European Public & Social Innovation Review (EPSIR), ISSN 2529-9824, Vol. 3, no 2, p. 1-13Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Designteams för innovativa jämställdhetsinsatser i skogsnäringen2015In: Den öppna skogen: Kön, genus och jämställdhet i skogssektorn / [ed] Elias Andersson, Umeå/Luleå: Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet & Luleå tekniska universitet , 2015, p. 131-150Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Tidigare forskning visar att framgångsrika jämställdhetsinsatser bygger på ett tydligt ledarskap samtidigt som medarbetare är delaktiga i det praktiska förändringsarbetet. I Luleå tekniska universitets projekt Från macho till modern – jämställdhet i skogsbrukets arbetsorganisationer som bedrevs 2013-2015 med finansiering från VINNOVA testades ett nytt grepp för att skapa såväl ledningsstyrning som bred förankring genom så kallade ”designteams”. Med stöd av VD och HR-representanter i tre skogsrelaterade skapades designteams som bestod av ett urval av cirka tio medarbetare från alla i nivåer i organisationerna med olika kön, kompetenser och antal år i organisationen. På så sätt skapades en såväl horisontell som vertikal mix av medarbetare för att få en så nyanserad bild som möjligt av genomförda, pågående och potentiella jämställdhetsinsatser. Målet var att designteamen skulle utveckla innovativa lösningar för jämställdhet i skogsnäringen.

    Genusmedveten utveckling av arbetsgivarvarumärket för hållbar kompetensförsörjning2017Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Tillgång till mänskliga resurser är avgörande för många företags långsiktiga utveckling och överlevnad. Demografiska förändringar och tecken på ökade svårigheter att rekrytera personal leder till att allt fler verksamheter måste reflektera över sitt arbetsgivarvarumärke i syfte att behålla och attrahera rätt personal. Inte bara demografiska förändringar utan även könssegregerade strukturera kan försvåra detta. Segregering, traditioner och stereotypa förhållningsätt påverkar individers utbildnings- och yrkesval vilket begränsar tillgången till kompetens.

    Med finansiering från VINNOVA för tillämpad genusforskning inledde en forskargrupp och ett ingenjörsföretag i Dalarna, 2009, ett samarbete för att gemensamt utveckla kunskap om hur en verksamhet kan bli mer attraktiv i syfte att underlätta framtida kompetensförsörjning utifrån ett genusperspektiv. De erfarenheter och frågeställningar som samarbetet genererade lade grund till denna avhandling. Syftet med avhandlingen är att öka den vetenskapliga kunskapen om hur begreppet arbetsgivarvarumärke kan utvecklas ur ett genusperspektiv för att öka arbetsgivares förmåga att rekrytera och behålla kompetent personal oavsett kön.

    För att besvara avhandlingens frågeställningar har olika vetenskapsområden kombinerats: Teorier om varumärke, arbetsgivarvarumärke, genusvetenskap och förändringsprocesser har varit grundläggande. Från det genusvetenskapliga fältet har främst begreppet ”doing gender” (göra kön) varit centralt för att förstå hur genus kan ses som ett vardagligt görande i organisationer. Även teorier om hållbara förändringsprocesser och utvecklingsprogram har använts för att öka förståelsen för organisering, ansvarsfördelning och utveckling av ett långsiktigt hållbart arbetsgivarvarumärke. Metoden för samverkan med det studerade företaget byggde på aktionsforskning med en abduktiv ansats där parterna gemensamt planerade och genomförde insatser. För att besvara de frågeställningar som uppstod i samarbetet med företaget användes forskningsdatabaser för att ta fram underlag för litteraturstudier.

    Avhandlingen bidrar med en vetenskaplig analys av hur ett genusperspektiv praktiskt och teoretiskt kan integreras i processen för utveckling av ett attraktivt arbete. Dessutom analyseras förslag på hur ansvarsfördelning och organisering kan utformas i en långsiktigt hållbar utvecklingsprocess för ett arbetsgivarvarumärke.

    Gendered potentials and delimitations in the church of Sweden’s social innovation2017In: Diaconia. Journal for the Study of Christian Social Practice, ISSN 1869-3261, E-ISSN 2196-9027, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 3-22Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Bringing actors together: ICT, disabillity and pupils in special school2009Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is part of everyday life in various ways. This thesis focuses on the connection between disability and ICT among pupils with intellectual disabilities and on ways for researcher to study human and technology. The aim has been to study how ICT, agency and disability become constructed in a collective made up by actors such as humans (pupils with intellectual disabilities) and non-humans (computers, mobile phones, policy-documents).Two studies at two schools (totally the studies included nine classes) in the Norrbotten area in Sweden were conducted as a way to disentangle the aim and research questions. The studies which underlie this thesis are based on observations and interviews among six pupils in three classes in their everyday schooldays. Additionally an analysis of Bill 2004/05:175 was conducted.The thesis presents reviews of theoretical and methodological resources from disability studies, feminist studies and science and technology studies, Actor-Network Theory in particular, as well as an analysis of selected empirical material from the classes and Bill 2004/05:175. The analysis was conducted through themes, namely the following: introducing the classes, the schooldays and the school setting, the pupils' everyday life in school, the policy and understanding about intellectual disability among pupils, using ICT during the schooldays, ICT in everyday life, the youths' views of the computer, the ICT policies in Sweden and a sustainable ICT society for all.The main findings present how pupils with intellectual disability live disability, how the pupils regard disability and technology (express disability and technology to be). The thesis additionally explores how the pupils talk about themselves as users and how this in turn also relates to policy practices (more specifically, on the expressions in various statements in the bill and its focus on use, user and access). Another concern is how disability becomes intertwined with technology. Moreover, the thesis explores how actors in a form of collective bear effects on the body and its intertwining with disability and technology. Additionally, it examines the ways the pupils see themselves and how they act. The study shows that forms of unity as well as differences regarding access and users of ICT are found in the practice of policy-making as well as in the pupils' practices. The thesis additionally disentangles how one as a researcher can give voice to human and technology interaction when researching disabled pupils' agency and subjectivity. Thus, the thesis explores ways for researchers to study human and technology without relying on boundaries between them while at the same time being responsible in her/his claims. Here the work draws upon work from feminist studies; an inspirational source is Donna Haraway and more specifically her concept of situated knowledge.

    Feminist technoscience: bridging between gender, disabilities and practices2004Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: To discuss what the work of Donna Haraway can contribute to disability studies The disability movement has debated the principle of normalisation, meaning among other things that all citizens should have equal access to society's services. The feminist technoscience scholar, Donna Haraway, has by her concept of situated knowledge, made the notion of equality concerning technology and professional practices problematic. Method: A qualitative study was conducted among students and teachers in special needs education to explore their use of IT. Further, a textual analysis of the Swedish IT-vision was conducted to understand how policymakers include societal differences (i.e. disability, gender) in their practices. Results: A situated knowledge perspective enables ways to question teachers' and policy-makers' practices as gendering and dis/abling. Conclusions: By relying on Haraway's perspective, where research starts from everyday practices, it is clear that policy-makers define relations between professionals' practices and I. It is in this definition, where it is argued that IT should be equal among all citizens, that gender and disability become constructed. Further, the teachers' practices are closely intertwined with the ITvision, by the policy-makers' demand to use IT as a pedagogical tool. Thus, they construct/challenge gendering/disabling practices.

    “The World at Your Fingertips if You Know the Computer”: Agency, Information and Communication Technologies and Disability2017Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis focuses on the relationships between agency, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and people with disability (in various ages). The aim has been to create an understanding by describing and analysing, and as such, to develop knowledge of how people with disabilities experience agency, ICT, and disability in their everyday lives. The frame of reference is inspired by disability studies, feminist studies and science and technologies studies (STS). The empirical material was collected in, Norrbotten (Sweden’s northernmost region) and Muscat (the capital area of the Sultanate of Oman) by an autobiographical account, audio-visual material, drawings, interviews, observations, and reading of textual documents. The thesis consists of six papers. The main findings outline that agency, ICT, disability, and gender are part of intra-actions between material entities (such as bodies, technologies, etc.) and practices. The thesis also explores that disability in Sweden and Oman are understood in a variety of ways. Additionally, it presents that the combination of the notions of interference with situated knowledges can contribute with alternative methodological insights about the interference of disability, gender, ICT, the participants’ and researchers’ experiences and understandings to make accountable knowledge claims. Moreover, the thesis presents that material entities (bodies and technologies) and practices are part of different modes of ordering disability which bear effects on the lives of people with disabilities. It additionally disentangles that materialities such as the Internet intra-act with other material entities (for instance, bodies) and practices which enact various forms of agency which bear effects on the everyday lives of people with disability and their ways to participate. Finally, the thesis outlines some implications that an intra-acting understanding of the use of Internet can contribute with in research which focuses on disability, participation, and agency.

    Modes of ordering disability: students living with visual disabilities in the Sultanate of Oman2017In: Scandinavian Journal of Disability Research, ISSN 1501-7419, E-ISSN 1745-3011, Vol. 19, no 2, p. 79-90Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines how a group of students with visual disabilities speak about becoming disabled and living with disability in relation to: material entities, practices, and their own expectations regarding the future in the Sultanate of Oman. It draws upon individual interviews among six adults with visual disabilities. The article outlines, from a material semiotics approach, how various forms of modes of ordering enact disability. An interdisciplinary approach, informed by disability studies and science and technology studies, is implemented to interpret: How do students with visual disabilities express the relationships between material entities (such as bodies and technologies) and practices? In what ways are these relationships enacting different modes of ordering disability? What kind of modes of ordering disability are the participants experiencing in their lives? How have they responded to the modes of ordering that they have encountered?

    Uppföljningsarbete av Lean: En kvalitativ studie av ett stort svenskt processindustriföretag2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this bachelor thesis was to contribute to the literature on how follow-up work of Lean can be performed in general as well as Lean-related follow-up work in company operating in process industry. In order to fulfill this purpose, the thesis has used two research questions: “How can leaders perform follow-up work of Lean in general?” and “How can leaders in a large Swedish company, operating in process industry, perform follow-up work of Lean?”.

    This research study a large Swedish company, Loussavaara-Kiirunavaara AB (LKAB), that is operating in process industry. LKAB’s implementation of Lean is executed by standardizing operation method by imposing standardize routines and instructions. Methodologically, grounded theory was used to conduct literature review, used to form interview guide before collected data from sex in-depth interviews with leaders from LKAB.

    The empirical results of this study show that interpretation of Lean production as a concept, motivation, leadership and communication are the main factors that influence follow-up work in a company operating in process industry. Furthermore, methods and tools such as PDCA-cycle, visual board “SMART” goals and meetings can be used to perform follow-up work of Lean. Additionally, outcome measure, method measure and Lean Navigator can use as measurements of follow-up work of Lean.

    The novel feminist diffraction concept: Its application in fifty-one peer-reviewed papers2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Diffraction,as conventionally defined, is a term for one among a number of wave phenomena.Since the 1990's, when it was introduced by Donna Haraway, it is also a concept within feminist methodology. While particularly the cyborg figure – the cybernetic organism – already in its mainstream scientific-technological scope involves both fantasy and innovation, the term diffraction is in its conventional meaning descriptive. This paper investigates the broad strokes of how the novel diffraction concept is taken in use. Fifty-one papers published in peer-reviewed journals from 2001 to June 2016. The results indicate that the opposition to traditional contemplation- i.e. reflection that Haraway sets as target when introducing the novel concept is the point around which the dynamics evolve.That far, the novel concept could be just any metaphor, like describing thinking things through as ‘reflecting’. Several authors however claim an interdisciplinary connotation, especially to physics. In the material investigated, every implementation and elaboration does not abide to the letter to each attribute in Haraway’s concept. The discovery of how dominant it nevertheless has become to do just that is an important result of this study. Haraway’s sketch of a mirror and a diffraction laboratory experiment is dealt with as was it a full description of wave theory, a complete representation that perfectly meshes with nature.  In a fair share of the material, Haraway’s invention of putting diffraction and reflection as metaphors for thinking in hierarchical opposition is literarily interpreted into physics.
