    Knowledge Management and Emerging Collaborative Networks in Tourism Business Ecosystems2015Ingår i: Proceedings of the 16th European Conference on Knowledge Management (ECKM 2015) / [ed] Massaro, M.; Garlatti, A., Academic Conferences Limited, 2015, s. 19-26Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    If we critically look at the evolution of the Tourism Industry (TI), we can note that, in the past decade, nothing has changed as much as ICTs and the Internet which caused an extensive transformation of the TI. Both demand and supply of ICT, together with innovation in transportation and international trade agreements, have evolved the tourism sector in operational workflows, management and marketing of new of tourism experiences. The massive use of new technologies has facilitated the rise of new flat organizational models where traditional brokers have disappeared, replaced by direct connections between local providers and tourists, or they have been reconfigured into new forms of dynamic and web-based tourism package providers. The depicted industry evolution shows potential, unthinkable just a few years ago, for local service providers usually marginalized from main tourism flows, due to their small sizes, and who are unable to compete in the globalized market. In many regions characterized by a niche tourism vocation, local tourism operators have started organizing themselves spontaneously in Collaborative Networks in order to create aggregate tourism offers that are able to compete with big tourism operators thus transforming regions with potential and vocation in real tourism destinations. The main socialeffect of instantiating these tourism partnerships, is the stimulus towards Tourism Business Ecosystems (TBEs) giving local tourism service providers a means for economic growth. The aim of this paper is to describe how the organizational paradigm of CNs, applied to the TBEs knowledge management and supported by ICTs, can be the key means for the growth of emerging TBEs. Such models are able to reengineer the tourism destination management model in order to gain much more flexibility in service provision and provide tourists the possibility to live an augmented tourism experience. In this paper we point out that tourism destinations, in an effort to give services able to actively support each phase of the 2.0 tourist lifecycle, can benefit from collaborative network models.

    Geographies of Place Branding: Researching through small and medium sized cities2015Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Place branding is commonly conceptualized with a focus on big cities, such as London, New York and Singapore, building from concepts and models from mainstream branding theory. In contrast to such conceptualizations, this thesis focuses on place branding in small and medium-sized cities. The present thesis aims to study place branding from a geographical perspective. It starts with debates theoretical and empirical understandings of place branding; what it is and how it is affecting the places where it is introduced. The thesis develops and argues for a perspective of territoriality and relationality to place branding discussing concepts, methods and empirical approaches to carry out place branding research using geographical perspectives. Empirically, this thesis focuses on in-depth studies of place branding in small and medium-sized cities in Sweden. By analyzing the development of place branding over the course of time, nuances and aspects of both territorial and relational origin emerge, situating place branding practices within a wider spatial contextualization. Four individual papers are presented, which taken together contribute to the aim of the thesis. Paper 1 introduces the place branding research field in geography and how it has developed; Paper 2 investigates the phenomena of flagship buildings located in small cities and towns; Paper 3 discusses the relationship between policy tourism and place branding; and Paper 4 analyzes how local environmental policies are affected by green place branding. The thesis demonstrates the complex and continuously interchangeable spatial structures and place contexts that create and re-produce the geographies of place branding. Here, research models and methodological examples are presented to illustrate how place branding can be studied from a geographical perspective and thus improve theoretical understandings of place branding.

    Om regional samverkan för hållbara persontransporter2019Ingår i: Ett nytt kontrakt för samhällsbyggandet / [ed] Josefina Syssner, Boxholm: Linnefors förlag , 2019, s. 157-180Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sambandet mellan persontransporter och de globala utsläppen av växthusgaser är väldokumenterat (IEA, 2014; Sims et al, 2014). I Sverige bidrar transportsektorn, och här framförallt personbilstrafik, till en tredjedel av den totala mängden utsläpp av växthusgaser (Naturvårdsverket, 2017). På samma gång anses transportsektorn, och här särskilt kollektivtrafiken, ha stor potential att bidra till att minska den totala mängden utsläpp av växthusgaser (Banister, 2011b; Hultén et al, 2018; Paulsson et al, 2017; Paulsson, 2018). Detta har motiverat att internationella och nationella politiskt uppsatta mål riktar sig mot att begränsa transportsektorns klimateffekter. På den globala nivån är Parisavtalets målsättning om minskade utsläpp för att begränsa klimatförändringens effekter av stor vikt. Genom de så kallade stadmiljöavtalen, som är ett nationellt program i Sverige sedan 2015, kan kommuner och regioner söka medel för att införa åtgärder som ska leda till "energieffektiva lösningar med låga utsläpp av växthusgaser" (Statens författningssamling, 2015). Här är åtgärder för kollektivtrafik ett betonat område. I det här kapitlet är utmaningen om miljömässigt hållbar utveckling för och genom kollektivtrafik den centrala utgångspunkten, samtidigt som detta behöver diskuteras som en del av hållbar utveckling i ett bredare perspektiv. En integrerad syn på hållbar utveckling är en av grundstenarna för de Globala målen antagna av FNs medlemsländer 2015. Mål om hållbara transporter omfattas av de Globala målen, som exempelvis mål 11 i Agenda 2030 vilket handlar om hållbara städer och samhällen (Globala målen och Agenda 2030). Här betonas att kollektivtrafiken är ett viktigt medel för att uppnå social hållbarhet och att utveckla ett "transportsystem för alla" (delmål 11.2). Det övergripande ansvaret för att planera för kollektivtrafik i Sverige ligger på de regionala kollektivtrafikmyndigheterna (RKM). Dessa är dock beroende av att samverka med en rad olika aktörer för att kollektivtrafikplaneringen ska kunna utföras, vilket omfattar kommuner, trafikföretag, resenärsgrupper, handelsföreningar (Paulsson et al, 2018), branschorganisationer, olika myndigheter och angränsande regioner. Den statliga regleringen för regional kollektivtrafikplanering tilldelar RKM en roll som kan liknas vid "processledare" för kollektivtrafiken och som omfattar att organisera för samverkan. Flertalet RKM har som mål att öka kollektivtrafikens andel av de persontransporter som sker. Detta är en utmanande uppgift utifrån den kraftiga tillväxten av den totala mängden personresor. Sett till utvecklingen sedan 1950 har denna ökning i mycket hög grad skett genom ökning av resor på väg varav personbilsresor dominerar. Från 1990-talet kan man dock se en viss andelsökning av personresor med järnväg (Andersson & Eriksson 2017). Ökad pendling till arbetet eller för utbildning är en viktig faktor som driver ökningen av personresor. Det sker över allt längre avstånd (Lindkvist Scholten, 2019) och ofta över kommungränser och regiongränser, något som ställer krav på samordning mellan kommuner och regioner. Detta är bakgrunden till att vi i det här kapitlet riktar ett intresse mot hur samverkan sker mellan dessa olika geografiska nivåer.

    Altruism or entrepreneurialism?: The co-evolution of green place branding and policy tourism in Växjö, Sweden2018Ingår i: Urban Studies, ISSN 0042-0980, E-ISSN 1360-063X, Vol. 55, nr 15, s. 3437-3453Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    More and more cities around the world are adopting green-city labels and are making use of their urban environmental policymaking for the purpose of place branding. However, the nature of the relationship between the branding of green cities and urban environmental policymaking is contested. Some researchers have highlighted so-called ‘greenwashing’ and the cherry-picking of easily attained goals. Others argue that green branding is driven by altruism, rather than intra-urban competition and entrepreneurialism. Drawing on literatures on policy tourism and green place branding, this article presents a longitudinal study of green branding in Växjö, Sweden. It contributes to the debate on green place branding by showing how two sets of contradictory impulses – entrepreneurialism/competition versus altruism/cooperation, and cherry-picking/greenwashing versus comprehensive environmental policymaking – affect the relationship between green place branding and environmental policy. In particular, the analysis illuminates the changing role played by policy tourism in shaping both the development of environmental policies and branding practices.

    From the greenest city in Europe to green heptathlon: place branding and policy tourism in Växjö, SwedenManuskript (preprint) (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the motivations and practices of cities engaging in policy boosterism, ‘a subset of traditional branding and marketing activities that involves the active promotion of locally developed and/or locally successful policies, programs, or practices across wider geographical fields as well as to broader communities of interested peers' (McCann, 2013: 5). The paper draws together literatures on policy boosterism, policy tourism, and place branding to explore the motivations of cities sharing policies in a competitive policy environment through policy tourism.  Using the case of environmental and urban sustainability policies in Växjö, Sweden, we examine how the rationale for sharing policy has changed over time, and how this both reflects and shapes the organization of policy tourism through technical visits and the branding of Växjö as ‘the greenest city in Europe’. Our study suggests that policy tourism and urban policymaking co-evolve in the context of policy boosterism. In Växjö what began as opportunistic branding now drives local environmental policymaking as the city strives to remain at the cutting edge. We suggest that detailed, longitudinal case studies are required to build a picture of the relationship between policy boosterism, policy tourism and urban policymaking in a variety of contexts.

    Clamour for Glamour: City competition for hosting the Swedish tryouts to the Eurovision Song Contest2010Ingår i: Tijdschrift voor economische en sociale geografie, ISSN 0040-747X, E-ISSN 1467-9663, Vol. 101, nr 2, s. 111-125Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    For some time it has been argued that cities all over the world have become more entrepreneurial and increasingly competitive. Most research has focused on spectacular events in well-known metropolises, but far less is known about how smaller cities engage in competitive activities. This paper focuses on how, why and what Swedish cities hope to achieve by engaging themselves in hosting the tryouts to the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC), which provides an opportunity for a critical case study of place marketing and city competition in Sweden. The empirical material is based on interviews with stakeholders in the tryouts. Our findings show that the local authorities do not compete in the same way as suggested by the literature, but instead collaborate to a great deal. While there are various motives behind arranging a tryouts tryout, it is noted that whereas the ESC presents an opportunity for a host city to 'place itself on the map', hosting a tryout is often mainly seen as an opportunity to show the organisers of the event the city's potential for hosting other events in the future. Our findings suggest that the main outcome of hosting a tryout, an outcome that the local authorities seem content with, is having arranged a glamorous party for the local inhabitants. The paper concludes by discussing why competition was found to be less outspoken than the literature suggests.

    Awesome women and bad feminists: the role of online social networks and peer support for feminist practice in academia2019Ingår i: Cultural Geographies, ISSN 1474-4740, E-ISSN 1477-0881, artikel-id 1474474019890321Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In her book, 'Bad Feminist', Roxane Gay claims this label shamelessly, embracing the contradictory aspects of enacting feminist practice while fundamentally being 'flawed human[s]'. This article tells a story inspired by and enacting Roxane Gay's approach in academia, written by five cis-gendered women geographers. It is the story of a proactive, everyday feminist initiative to survive as women in an academic precariat fuelled by globalised, neoliberalised higher education. We reflect on what it means to be (bad) feminists in that context, and how we respond as academics. We share experiences of an online space used to support one another through post-doctoral life, a simple message thread, which has established an important role in our development as academics and feminists. This article, written through online collaboration, mirrors and enacts processes fundamental to our online network, demonstrating the significance and potential of safe digital spaces for peer support. Excerpts from the chat reflect critically on struggles and solutions we have co-developed. Through this, we celebrate and validate a strategy we know that we and others like us find invaluable for our wellbeing and survival. Finally, we reflect on the inherent limitations of exclusive online networks as tools for feminist resistance.

    An "Orphan" Creative Industry: Exploring the Institutional Factors Constraining the Canadian Fashion Industry2017Ingår i: Growth and Change, ISSN 0017-4815, E-ISSN 1468-2257, Vol. 48, nr 4, s. 942-962Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, tier-two fashion countries have been making gains in the global fashion industry, with hip young brands, buzz-worthy fashion weeks and export-oriented designers. The Canadian fashion industry, on the other hand, continues to fall behind and instead has experienced recent high-profile closures of leading domestic fashion names. This paper explores why this is the case by considering a wide range of factors from a historical and institutional perspective. We argue that Canadian fashion is facing a number of systemic problems relating to wider institutional and policy weaknesses, rather than a lack of talent and know-how within the entrepreneurs and businesses in the sector. While the fashion industry is indeed global, we argue that it is in fact national and local level factors—political, economic, and cultural—that structure and constrain the Canadian fashion industry for independent designers. Through exploring the experiences of this group of actors—entrepreneurial fashion designers—in this particular context, we not only learn about Canada as an economy but also what is needed in order to develop the fashion industry more broadly. We provide a framework for analysing the range of socio-economic, historical, and political factors at the national level which affect the performance of the fashion sector and the operation of fashion designers as the entrepreneurial actors at the heart of the industry.

    A framework for analysing the role of innovation policy in regional innovation system development2017Ingår i: International Journal of Innovation and Regional Development, ISSN 1753-0660, E-ISSN 1753-0679, Vol. 7, nr 4, s. 237-256Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper develops a framework for analysing the role of innovation policy in regional innovation system (RIS) development. It specifically focuses on the influence of policy on a set of enabling conditions for RIS that have not been taken fully into account in previous innovation policy studies. Drawing on relevant literature on innovation systems, such as innovation policy, triple helix and policy mix etc., the enabling conditions for RIS development identified include both tangible and intangible dimensions of regional contexts, hinging around a range of wider institutional backdrops. The framework proposed provides an effective analytical tool for innovation policy evaluation and for designing innovation policies.

    Transformation of regional innovation policies: from ‘traditional’ to ‘next generation’ models of incubation2017Ingår i: European Planning Studies, ISSN 0965-4313, E-ISSN 1469-5944, Vol. 25, nr 4, s. 620-637Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores a widely - employed instrument of regional innov a- tion policy: the innovation incubator. It proposes th at incubation approaches are moving away from a “traditional” approach strongly premised of physical infr a- structure and high - technology, to a more interactive, participatory, and social mode of innovation , in line with broader developments in innovation policy and theory . To practically illustrate this shift , we take two cases: a “traditional ” style of incubation in Wales, UK, and a “next generation” incubation programme in Fi n land. This paper reflect s on incub a tors as a mode of regional innovation policy, both past developments and future trends , to ensure that new policies and pr o- gramme s lea rn from best (and indeed , worst ) practice and build on , rather than replicate , past approaches.

    Beyond the 'usual suspects' - Alternative qualitative methods for innovation policy studies2019Ingår i: African Journal of Science, Technology, Innovation and Development, ISSN 2042-1338, Vol. 11, nr 4, s. 513-522Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we make three points about the current state and promising future directions of qualitative research in our field of innovation policy research. First, we argue that research design and methods are dealt with quite superficially in most innovation policy studies papers and journals providing little guidance to new scholars as to how to approach their research. Secondly we argue that when methods are discussed, it tends to be a narrow range of qualitative methods that are used - most commonly a case study approach drawing on interviews and document analysis. Thirdly, we suggest broadening our approach to contain more participatory and action-based research; these are suggested as ways to include more groups in the research design, increase the impact of our work and allow us a deeper understanding of the formulation and development of innovation policy as is possible. We do not argue that the old methods should be put aside but that new additional approaches could be considered to capture the essence of innovation policy formulation.

    Questioning the implementation of smart specialisation: Regional innovation policy and semi-autonomous regions2018Ingår i: Environment and Planning C: Politics and Space, ISSN 2399-6544, Vol. 36, nr 3, s. 530-547Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper considers the recent developments in regional innovation policy pertaining to the smart specialisation agenda from the perspective of a peripheral and semi-autonomous region – Wales in the UK. Through a case study of innovation policy developments in Wales over the past 20 years, and also a consideration of extant literature pertaining to regional innovation policy and smart specialisation, this paper finds a number of issues or shortcomings in the current predominant smart specialisation approach. These are traced back to the strong regional innovation system logic existing in European policy; a number of unresolved theoretical problems that could undermine the efficacy of innovation policy are identified. Both conceptual and rhetorical issues with the concept of the region are highlighted, and questions are asked about the applicability and tenability of smart specialisation approaches in semi-autonomous, cross-border regions, and for policymakers operating in circumstances of multi-level governance. This paper illustrates how such regions provide us with a lens or alternative perspective through which to reconsider our predominant theoretical and practical policy approaches, and highlights a number of potential problems with smart specialisation as it is applied in a diverse range of regional settings.

    Universities and economic development in lagging regions: ‘triple helix’ policy in Wales2017Ingår i: Regional studies, ISSN 0034-3404, E-ISSN 1360-0591, Vol. 51, nr 7, s. 982-993Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

     This paper considers the applicability and relevance of triple helix-based policy and theory, in the weaker region context of Wales,where the success of such approaches has been questionable. It calls for a broader appreciation of the roles ofuniversities in weaker regions beyond a narrow ‘third mission’ conceptualization, moving away from a normativeapplication of the triple helix in contexts very different from those in which it was originated. Instead, it supports thebroadening of the original theory beyond the three key actors of university, government and business, and anincreasing focus on diverse regional settings and spaces.

    Abstract [en]

    The student of innovation studies is faced with a vast, multi-national and interdisciplinary field on which she must gain an overview and make a novel contribution. There exist a plethora of academic journals, networks, conferences and fora wherein researchers of innovation discuss and advance the topic. How to manage and understand this is a major challenge. This paper helps to make sense of this often confusing and ever-shifting field by reviewing the major developments over the past 20 years, highlighting the present ‘state of the art’ and identifying some important trends going forwards. It does this through a review of the published themes of two major international conferences in the field–Danish Research Unit for Industrial Dynamics (DRUID) and Global Network for the Economics of Learning, Innovation, and Competence Building Systems (GLOBELICS) – to gain a global view on the field. At the heart of the exploration is whether the sphere of innovation studies has evolved coherently worldwide, or there are geographic differences.

    The entrepreneurial university and the region: what role for entrepreneurship departments?2018Ingår i: European Planning Studies, ISSN 0965-4313, E-ISSN 1469-5944, Vol. 26, nr 9, s. 1835-1855Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the concept of the entrepreneurial university by examining roles of academic entrepreneurship departments in driving regional economic development outcomes. While a wealth of research investigates the role, activities and function of the entrepreneurial university, very little which focuses specifically on academic entrepreneurship departments, where much of the research, teaching and knowledge exchange concerning entrepreneurship takes place. Two case studies of large and active entrepreneurship departments are presented to illustrate the different roles and activities they undertake in the sphere of economic development in their regions or locales. A dual model of engagement is proposed, whereby the entrepreneurship department operates within the framework of the entrepreneurial university, but also as a regional actor in its own right.

    From ‘Techniums’ to ‘emptiums’: the failure of a flagship innovation policy in Wales2018Ingår i: Regional studies, ISSN 0034-3404, E-ISSN 1360-0591, Vol. 52, nr 7, s. 1009-1020Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the use of European Union Structural Funds to support the development of innovation policy within Wales during the period 2000-06. Drawing on data from the Welsh government and interviews with key stakeholders, it focuses specifically on the Technium programme, a high-profile technology-based innovation intervention that took a predominantly supply-side approach to supporting innovation, resulting in its eventual failure. Consistent within this is an analysis of the efficacy of supply-side policies using European Union funds to support research and development activities to aid economic growth in peripheral, weaker regions.

    Regional clustering of human capital: school grades and migration of university graduates2014Ingår i: The annals of regional science, ISSN 0570-1864, E-ISSN 1432-0592, Vol. 52, nr 2, s. 561-581Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The spatial distribution of human capital plays a fundamental role for regional differences in economic growth and welfare. This paper examines how individual ability indicated by the grade point average (GPA) from comprehensive school affects the probability of migration among young university graduates in Sweden. Using detailed microdata available from the Swedish population register, the study examines two cohorts of individuals who enrol in tertiary education. The results indicate that individual abilities reflected by the GPA are strongly influential when it comes to completing a university degree and for the migration decision after graduation. Moreover, there is a positive relationship between the GPA and the choice of migrating from regions with a relatively low tax base and a relatively small share of highly educated people in the population, while individuals with higher GPA tend to stay at a higher rate in more flourishing regions.

    Labour income effects of the recent "mining boom" in northern Sweden2016Ingår i: Resources policy, ISSN 0301-4207, E-ISSN 1873-7641, Vol. 49, s. 31-40Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    During the early 21st century, the world market prices for minerals increased dramatically. As a consequence of this development, large investments were made in mining all around the world. Increased exploration activities, the opening of new mines and large investment schemes in already operating mines and related physical infrastructure also gave rise to a “mining boom” in the remote and sparsely populated areas of northern Sweden. New jobs were generated in the mining sector, but the question of whether the “mining boom” also has stimulated economic development in a broader sense in these areas has been more open. The present article investigated whether labour incomes have increased not only in sectors clearly connected to mining, but also in other parts of the local and regional economy. This was done by following the income changes of residents in the mining areas of northern Sweden over the time period 2004–2010 and by using a propensity score matching estimator method (PSM). The results show rapid income growth for employees in the mining industry and construction sectors, but also some growth in several other sectors, indicating spread effects to the rest of the local and regional economies. The impact, however, is much stronger in the largest mining towns than in communities where mining is of less significance.
