    Konsten att bygga bättre, billigare och snabbare: en studie av samverkan mellan kommuner och näringsliv i bostads- och infrastrukturplanering2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna rapport är en ingående studie i hur samverkan mellan kommuner och näringsliv kan underlätta bostads- och infrastrukturbyggande. Rapporten tar också upp hur kommuner och företag ser på sitt engagemang i olika utvecklingsprojekt. bland annat ifrågasätts realismen i att utveckla de regionala kärnor som pekas ut i den regionala utveciklingsplanen för stockholms län. Tre fall studier har i rapporten fått illustrera möjjligheter och svårigheter med samverkan mellan kommuner och näringsliv och kommunerna sinsemellan. De tre projekten som beskrivs är Norrortsleden, Sollentuna Centrum och Täby-Arninge.

    Firm Location, Corporate Structure, R&D Investment, Innovation and Productivity2007In: Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Functional Regions, Edward Elgar , 2007Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study elucidates the relationship between localisation of firms, corporate structure, intellectual capital and innovations.The main finding is that a greater concentration of multinational firms, human capital, T&D and universities is significantly and positive associated with research productivity. All other things equal, such as firm size, sector classification, human capital, corporate owner structure and R&D investment, the return to an invested Euro in R&D is, at the margin, greatest for firms localized to the capital of Sweden, compared to four other large regions. However, surprisingly Stockholm firms also have a lower propensity to cooperate with scientific, vertical and horisontal innovation systems. This may reflect limitations of popular survey-based information such as Community Innovation Survey data to capture spillover and the importance of informal collaborative relationships within regions.

    Firm Location, Corporate Structure,R&D Investment, Innovation and Productivity2005Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study elucidates how firm location and corporate structure influence R&D-intensity, externalcollaboration on innovation, return on R&D and economic performance. The study, based on 1,907 firmlevel observations, essentially compare a functional region with four other regional areas in Sweden. Inthis context, the Stockholm region is assumed as an integrated functional urban region with innovationproximitycharacteristics. The paper examines systematically the influence of location versus various firmcharacteristics. The econometric results suggest the following: First, a typical Stockholm firm has asignificantly larger likelihood than other firms of being engaged in innovation activities. Second, amonginnovative firms, the R&D intensity and global collaboration on innovation is primarily determined by itscorporate structure, not geographic location. Third, the embeddedness in regional and national scientificand vertical innovation systems is relatively more intense outside Stockholm. Finally, the advantage ofbeing located within Sweden’s most strongest concentration of R&D spending, universities, human capitaland multinational enterprises with their global networks is reflected by a superior return on R&Dinvestments and higher productivity, when controlling for firm size, human capital, physical capital, R&Dintensity,market orientation and sector classification.

    Sustainable Stockholm: Exploring Urban Sustainability in Europe's Greenest City2013Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sustainable Stockholm provides a historical overview of Stockholm's environmental development, and also discusses a number of cross-disciplinary themes presenting the urban sustainability work behind Stockholm's unique position, and importantly the question of how well Stockholm's practices can be exported and transposed to other places and contexts.By using the case of Stockholm as the pivot of discussions, Sustainable Stockholm investigates the core issues of sustainable urban environmental development and planning, in all their entanglements. The book shows how intersecting fields such as urban planning and architecture, traffic planning, land-use regulation, building, waste management, regional development, water management, infrastructure engineering–together and in combination–have contributed to making Stockholm Europe's “greenest” city. © 2013 selection and editorial material, Jonathan Metzger, Amy Rader Olsson.

    Collaboration to Improve Local Business Services: The "Norrtälje Project" in Sweden2008In: International Journal of Bank Marketing, ISSN 0265-2323, E-ISSN 1758-5937, Vol. 26, no 1, p. 57-72Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to test the effectiveness of collaborative dialogue to support small business development in small communities. Design/methodology/approach - The paper employs a case study involving collaboration using both an interpersonal network structure and an inter-organizational project structure. Findings - the paper finds that collaboration mobilizes local resources to fill structural and relational gaps in the local institutional environment for SMEs. Research limitations/ implications - The research agenda for collaborative planning should include studying institutional factors that can hinder some actors such as small businesses from participating. Originality/value - The paper provides practical experience of banks as community development actors, and identifies a potential conflict in normative collaboration theory between inclusiveness/diversity and a "higher level" institutional focus.

    Planning Metropolitan Regions: Institutional Perspectives and the Case for Space2008Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis aspires to advance understanding of how actor choices relate to embedded structures of rules in communicative planning practice, using insights from the institutional literature developed in organizational science, economics, sociology and planning. Specifically, the thesis argues that a spatial institutional perspective can help planners understand the complex patterns of interaction among actors, and between actors and rules. Actors interact in the spaces created by the interplay between actor choices and rule structures: the institutional environment.

    The thesis comprises five papers: two case studies, a literature review and a theoretical paper. A review of the institutional literature reveals insights from other disciplines not yet fully explored in planning, including transaction cost analysis to explain individual decisions and collective action approaches to understanding micro behaviour and macro outcomes. These insights, together with the results of the case studies, suggest that planning theory needs to better understand how individual actors make choices within rule structures and based on the expected behaviour of others.

    To address this, the thesis offers the concept of relational rewards, which incorporates theories of social capital and communication externalities into a rational actor approach. This may provide an explanation for why self-interested actors make choices about whether or not to participate in interactive forums designed to meet communicative goals. This approach can also explain how boundedly rational actors without communicative norms may over time develop a propensity to collaborate.

    In a practical sense, this thesis challenges planners to think about what selective incentives they offer actors to participate in communicative planning. It encourages planners to identify and characterize the many institutional environments for planning and decisionmaking in transaction cost terms. Planning theorists and practitioners are experienced and adept in understanding and applying a spatial perspective, and can develop a spatial-institutional approach to coordinating actors both across physical space and within institutional environments.

    Relational Rewards and Communicative Planning: Understanding Actor Motivation2009In: Planning Theory, ISSN 1473-0952, E-ISSN 1741-3052, Vol. 8, no 3, p. 263-281Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article uses a collective action approach to analyse the risk of social dilemmas in communicative planning processes. If actors are self-interested and lack a predisposition to co-operation and communication, they may choose to free ride or under-contribute to the non-excludable outputs of voluntary communicative planning processes that lack reprisals for defection or under-contribution. To motivate their participation, actors must expect some exclusive additional reward. This analysis leads to a suggestion that communicative planning may create social capital networks that offer valuable relational rewards, in varying amounts, to some or all interdependent stakeholders. The value of relational rewards is their potential to reduce transaction costs in future collective actions. The expectation of relational rewards may be a selective incentive powerful enough to counteract the social dilemmas inherent in communicative planning processes in pursuit of normative goals such as inclusiveness and diversity. However, the existence of relational rewards may facilitate strategic action as much as communicative action.

    Polycentric spatial development: institutional challenges to intermunicipal cooperation2011In: Jahrbuch für Regional Wissenschaft, ISSN 0173-7600, E-ISSN 1613-9836, Vol. 31, no 2, p. 155-171Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Policies supporting a polycentric metropolitan spatial structure have been suggested as an effective way to achieve sustainable environmental, economic and social urban development. However, there are significant challenges to implementing a polycentric spatial strategy in practice. Metropolitan space is governed by many large and small municipalities and infrastructure investments are determined by local, regional and national authorities and private developers. Polycentric spatial strategies meet classic collective action problems since local costs and benefits are asymmetrical. Most metropolitan regions lack effective institutions for resolving social dilemmas and collective action challenges that could facilitate land use and transport policies supporting polycentric or other sustainable spatial strategies. This study of intermunicipal dialogue regarding the polycentric spatial strategy in the Stockholmregion suggests that cooperation for polycentric spatial development may in fact lead instead to a corridor development pattern.

    Firm location, corporate structure, R&D investment, innovation and productivity2005Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study elucidates how firm characteristics, innovation-system collaboration, market extension andfirm location influence economic performance, innovation efforts and innovation output. Firmcharacteristics include corporate structure, size, capital and knowledge assets, R&D persistence etc.The location variable separates Sweden into five areas, one of which is the Stockholm metropolitanregion. The study is based on 2,083 Community Innovation Survey firm level observations forSweden. The first stage of the empirical analysis shows that the propensity to be an innovative firm(making innovation efforts) is an increasing function of size, profitability, human capital, andextensive markets. For the subgroup of innovative firms, return to product innovations is positivelyrelated to location in the Stockholm region, multinational firms, R&D investment and persistence, andnegatively related to firm size. For the same subgroup, total sales per employee follow a similarpattern, but value added per employee does not. The paper also reports about firms’ R&D investment,external collaboration on innovation, and non-imitation innovations across the same regions. Theresults suggest that a firm’s R&D- embeddedness in scientific, horizontal and vertical innovationsystems is primarily determined by its corporate structure, not geographic location.

    Förstudie av det bilaterala svensk-kinesiska samarbetet kring ekostäder2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sverige har under flera år haft ett samarbete med Kina angående utveckling av ekostäder. Ett flertal myndigheter, företag och forskare har medverkat i planeringen av två stadsutvecklingsprojekt i Kina – Tangshan Bay Eco-City och Wuxi Sino-Swedish Eco-City. Denna förstudie syftar till att skapa en ram för en eventuell utvärdering av samarbetet mellan svenska och kinesiska aktörer. Förstudien omfattar en inventering av tidigare forskning och andra relevanta rapporter, identifiering av nyckelaktörer och aktiviteter inom det svensk-kinesiska samarbetet samt intervjuer med representanter från medverkande företag och kontor. Resultatet av inventeringen och intervjuerna analyseras med hänsyn till befintlig forskning angående effektiva institutioner för planering och finansiering, tillämpning av innovativ energi-och miljöteknik, och planering som beaktar stadens metaboliska funktioner samt faktorer som påverkar socialt hållbarhet. Förstudien har genomförts av forskare vid KTH från institutionerna för Energiteknik, Samhällsplanering och miljö samt hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik under perioden oktober 2014-februari 2015.

    Socialt kapital och innovation: ett rumsligt perspektiv” (Social capital and innovation: a spatial perspective)2013In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, Vol. 90, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our understanding of the relationship between innovative capacity, social ca-pital and the social dimension of sustainable development is still in its infan-cy. There is an extensive literature on innovation with a strong connection to theories of social capital, but only a few studies have examined the effects of social capital on innovation. We create and test two measurable variables that describe local innovative potential in order to contribute to deeper understan-ding of the link between innovation and social capital: business-related social capital related to place, and innovative policy potential in local communities. Our model for Swedish municipalities indicates that these two variables have a positive impact on firm innovation (measured by export value per capita) at the local level, but also that there may be differences between these relationships in urban and rural municipalities.

    The role of local governance and environmental policy integration in Swedish and Chinese eco-city development2015In: Journal of Cleaner Production, ISSN 0959-6526, E-ISSN 1879-1786Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines institutional conditions for local governance and environmental integration. Four eco-city cases in Sweden and China are analyzed. The theoretical framework is based on theories of Environmental Policy Integration (EPI) and sustainable urban planning. Three categories of institutional conditions guide the analysis: Political will and commitment, Understanding, knowledge and experience, and Inter-organizational coordination. Despite strong local political will and commitment, considerable obstacles to environmental integration still exist, including political instability, lack of understanding, knowledge and experience, and insufficient cross-sector coordination. The current administrative organization based on sector-specific responsibility appears to impede cross-sector coordination for integrating environmental concerns in urban development. The establishment of temporary local administrative organizations may be an effective solution to break cross-sector barriers and generate integrated solutions to realize environmental objectives.

    Start-ups and Local Entrepreneurial Social Capital in the Municipalities of Sweden2014In: Regional studies, ISSN 0034-3404, E-ISSN 1360-0591, Vol. 48, no 6, p. 974-994Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper contains one of the first empirical attempts to investigate the influence of local entrepreneurial social capital (ESC) on start-up propensity. A unique database, including not only total start-ups but also data on start-ups divided into six sectors, is used to study the impact of ESC on start-ups per capita. The results support the hypothesis that social capital, measured both as (1) firm perception of local public attitudes to entrepreneurship and (2) the share of small businesses influences start-up propensity in Swedish municipalities. The findings also support previous results suggesting that social capital has a somewhat stronger influence in rural areas than in urban areas.

    Abstract [en]

    The current empirical entrepreneurship literature mainly shows a positive correlation between entrepreneurship (measured as the number of startups) and economic growth. However, the mechanisms by which entrepreneurship exerts its positive influence are not obvious. This chapter studies the connections between startups and local development at the municipallevel in Sweden 2000-08. Weuse a unique database including not only total startups, but also data on startups divided into six branches to study the impact of entrepreneurship on population and employment growth. Analyses are performed on all municipalities as well as by municipality type. in contrast to previous research, our results indicate that for several branch groups startup effects on growth may be more pronounced in low density areas than in urban agglomerations.
