    Renewing industry cluster developments through interregional university-industry pipelines and sensemaking2011In: International Journal of Innovation and Regional Development, ISSN 1753-0660, E-ISSN 1753-0679, Vol. 3, no 6, p. 604-631Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to improve understanding of regional development processes in relation to industry-university links and cluster development. An innovative regional automotive test industry cluster, located in a peripheral region of northern Sweden, is the empirical case at hand. Key findings from our longitudinal investigation show how once the local automotive test industry reached a certain maturity that renewal was sought via developing interregional links with universities. However, due to misunderstandings and imbalance of motives between the respective regional industry and non-local universities, disruptions to the renewal were experienced. Despite such challenges, new university-industry pipelines were able to open and enact renew of the industry clusters development. This occurs through what we term an ‘interregional sensegiving and sensemaking process’ that in our case take place between personal communication and meeting were trust is an important factor. Subsequently, with particular focus on regional industry cluster development and university-industry links this paper contributes to existing literature by showing the potential of applying sensemaking on a regional level and provides relevant implications for theory and practise.

    Living lab: an open and citizen-centric approach for innovation2009In: International Journal of Innovation and Regional Development, ISSN 1753-0660, E-ISSN 1753-0679, Vol. 1, no 4, p. 356-370Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we focus on a new research area, Living Lab that introduces new ways of managing innovation processes. A Living Lab can be viewed as both an innovation milieu and an innovation approach and the aim of this paper is to clarify these two perspectives, as well as to illustrate how they can enrich each other. This is done by presenting one Living Lab milieu, Botnia Living Lab and its key components; and one Living Lab approach, FormIT and its key principles. The presentation is done on two levels, one general level and one case specific level. The case focuses on involving citizens in the design of an e-service aimed to increase their influence in a municipality and its development. Through this, we learnt that the key components of a Living Lab constitutes important structures that enhance the process and as such the principles.

    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.

    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.

    Regional social innovation: Pinpointing socially inclusive change for smart, inclusive and sustainable growth in European regional development policy2016In: International Journal of Innovation and Regional Development, ISSN 1753-0660, E-ISSN 1753-0679, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 123-140Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores how social innovation on the regional, sub-national, level helps pinpoint socially inclusive change for smart, inclusive and sustainable growth in European regional development policy. The article presents and analyzes new and unique data on regional social innovation from northern Sweden, where a participatory research approach was used to develop new theoretical and practical knowledge in cooperation between researchers and concerned societal actors. The study exposes that the studied examples pinpoint crucial elements by acknowledging the relevance of power-related dimensions such as gender, ethnicity, class, sexuality, rurality etc. when distinguishing societal challenges, social needs and social improvements, the relevance of civil society engagement when developing new solutions, the importance of interaction across personal, organizational, sectoral and spatial boundaries, and the importance of highlighting and challenging power-relations that ascribe higher status to a limited range of groups, organizations, sectors, perspectives and innovation forms.

    Research, industry and public sector cooperation: a dynamic perspective2012In: International Journal of Innovation and Regional Development, ISSN 1753-0660, E-ISSN 1753-0679, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 144-159Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While networks between research, industry and the public sector are regarded as prerequisites for innovation and regional development, establishing these structures is not trivial and their success is far from given. To deepen our knowledge of these networks, a dynamic model describing the coordinating functions and their drivers within such constellations is presented and empirically examined by means of an explorative case study. The model illustrates the challenges of co-operation in cross-sector constellations, which stem from different logics and expectations, and how different actors’ degree of commitment varies over time. In successful cross-sector collaboration, actors fulfil different functions during different phases, and leadership shifts over time. A greater understanding of these dynamics can enhance public policy initiatives aimed at sustaining co-operation for innovation and regional growth.

    Measuring impact from policy interventions: a theoretical and practical framework depicting structural change2014In: International Journal of Innovation and Regional Development, ISSN 1753-0660, E-ISSN 1753-0679, Vol. 5, no 6, p. 481-499Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we propose a framework for better understanding how structural change may be conceptualised and measured. In 2012, Oxford Research AB was assigned by the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth to study the impact of EU structural funds on structural change. For this purpose, we have developed a framework for measuring structural change. The framework is deducted from previous research and highlights six factors depicted as critical for understanding structural change and policy interventions aiming to stimulate such a change: 1) changing the structure of regional business and industry; 2) strengthening the regional culture for entrepreneurship and innovation; 3) developing collaboration for development; 4) building a more effective support structure; 5) strengthening a region's infrastructure; 6) developing an attractive and pluralistic region. This article elaborates this research endeavour and discusses the empirical experiences gained from a first application and comprehensive test of the model.
