    Investigating potential effects of mobility and accessibility services using the avoid-shift-improve framework2023In: Sustainable cities and society, ISSN 2210-6707, Vol. 96, p. 104676-104676, article id 104676Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mobility services and accessibility services could contribute to reduced car-dependency and a more sustainable transport system. However, uncertainty remains regarding what the effects will be and further research is needed. In this paper we examine potential effects on passenger car-travel in an urban context. To do so, we actuate the Avoid-Shift-Improve (ASI) framework using a System Dynamics approach and develop thematic Causal Loop Diagrams. We draw on the findings from a literature study and workshops engaging actors involved in creating visions and planning for the future of mobility and accessibility services in Stockholm, Sweden. The effects discovered are categorized as direct, enabling and structural/systemic, using a retrofitted version of the Three-Levels Model. Contributions include the mapping of mechanisms through which the services can have positive and negative effects in relation to ASI, demonstrating a high degree of interconnectedness. This includes potential synergetic and competitive relations between the services. In addition, the approach gives insight to potential cumulative impact of the services, relatable to Mobility as a Service, including ‘user near’ effects regarding, e.g., commuting and leisure travel, as well as systemic and structural level effects. A discussion is conducted on the implications for actors and policy-makers.

    Public-private innovation: Mediating roles and ICT niches of industrial research institutes2010In: INNOV-MANAG POLICY PRACT, ISSN 1447-9338, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 206-216Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Innovation processes involve diverse sets of organizations including universities, private firms, corporate research labs and public research institutes. Collaborative forms of knowledge production and innovative activity enable actors to reduce risk, specialize, and take advantage of knowledge internal and external to the own organization. This paper discusses interactions and collaborations between public and private sector innovation. This is done through an analysis of semi-public research institutes in Sweden and their roles as arenas for R&D processes involving industry, university and government in terms of funding, research and public-private innovation. Particular attention is paid to technological niches of research institutes and utilization of research findings from collaborative R&D. The results show that institutes occupy specific niches which influence their ways of transferring knowledge. It is argued that diversity among R&D performers as well as funding opportunities is paramount for innovation systems to thrive.

    Concluding Discussion: The Past, Present, and Future of Technical Universities2020In: Technical Universities: Past, Present and Future / [ed] Geschwind, L., Broström, A., Larsen, K, Cham: Springer Nature, 2020, 1, p. 227-242Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Higher education institutions identified as ‘technical universities’ enjoy considerable status in many countries. Yet studies of boundary negotiations from a range of settings suggest that opportunities to transform into a broader, research-based university often takes precedence over the alternative vision of remaining or moving towards becoming a focused technical university. In this chapter, we discuss alternative explanations for the lacklustre appeal of the latter type of institutional template, and outline a roadmap for how the historical legacy of the technical university may be cultivated.

    Knowledge production at industrial research institutes: Institutional logics and struggles for relevance in the Swedish Institute for Surface Chemistry, 1980-20052017In: Research Evaluation, ISSN 0958-2029, E-ISSN 1471-5449, Vol. 26, no 4, p. 337-348Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines dynamics of knowledge production and discourses of basic-applied science and relevance at the Swedish Institute for Surface Chemistry, a semi-public industrially oriented research institute, from 1980 to 2005. We employ a three-pronged method, consisting of (1) an analysis of how the institute articulated its research priorities and goals in publications primarily directed to stakeholders, (2) an analysis of retrospective narratives by researchers and managers about research ideologies and priorities, and (3) a bibliometric analysis of the institute's scientific publications. Using a theoretical framework centered on the notions of institutional logics and struggles for relevance, we show how the transformations of the institute amount to a substitution of an internalized institutional logic of scientific autonomy with a new logic of industrial utility, and how the institute's knowledge production was managed during this change. We also point out various strategies used by the institute to preserve and advance its own goals while still remaining relevant with regard to changing policy objectives. Another important finding is that although the institute by the end of the study period was fully committed to an industrial service role, parts of the originally deeply entrenched scientific logic were still manifested, although then discussed in the new industrial terminology.

    Policy recommendations Pacífico Econavipesca project: KTH Royal Institute of Technology Field study report 2022-20232024Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of the Pacífico Econavipesca project is to develop a sustainable artisanal fishing model that reduces the environmental, social, and economic impacts on the ecosystem in the municipality of Guapi, Cauca, in Colombia. A major challenge is to reduce dependence on fossil fuels for the fishing boats and engage in dialogues with the local community about ways to create social entrepreneurship opportunities to make fishing activities more sustainable long-term. The project’s main methodology is transdisciplinary co-creation, that includes the local community as part of the team together with academic team members from different disciplines. The focus of fieldwork activities in the project is to create room for dialogues and mutual learning rather than importing or imposing certain technology or ways of thinking to any local community.

    Climate change scenarios and behavioural change: Navigating between heuristics of deliberative planning processes and astroturfing2008Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In constructing normative scenarios images of the future are generated illustrating potential ways of living, travelling and consuming products and services where certain goals such as a reduced climate impact are fulfilled (Börjeson et al, 2006; Myers and Kitsuse, 2000). This paper analyses the sustainability framing of behavioural changes in such normative scenarios (Larsen and Höjer, 2007) and how it relates to the participatory processes used to generate the scenarios. We discuss this building on concepts of deliberative planning processes as a means to achieve legitimate, effective and sustainable futures (Connelly and Richardson, forthcoming; Hendriks et al., 2007). The theoretical arguments are combined with examples from environmental scenario construction in practice (Carlsson-Kanyama et al., 2003, Dreborg et al., forthcoming). This illustrates fields of tension arising when either sustainability or process values are veneering goals of a scenario making process. When focus is on content values such as reduced climate impact, the process values might be depreciated. On the other hand, when focus is on process values such as legitimacy, content sustainability and possibilities for actual change might be downgraded.

    Sustainable communications and innovation: Different types of effects from collaborative research including university and companies in the ICT-sector2012In: ICT Critical Infrastructures and Society: 10th IFIP TC 9 International Conference on Human Choice and Computers, HCC10 2012, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, September 27-28, 2012. Proceedings, Springer, 2012, p. 170-182Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents experiences from the Centre for Sustainable Communications (CESC) located at KTH – The Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. Since 2007, the centre has carried out research in collaboration with private firms in the information and communication technology (ICT) and media sectors as well as with public sector organizations in the city of Stockholm. The aim is to share experiences from how the partners of the centre describe benefits and effects from collaborative research. Since the centre is focusing on use of ICT and media technology, rather than technology development per se, this provides an account of a wide range of effects from university-industry collaborations and new insights into the innovation processes targeting sustainability in the ICT and media sectors. This is an important perspective of sustainable and responsible innovation that is not captured in traditional innovation surveys (counting the number of new products or patents). Areas examined here include: increased knowledge and competence, new contacts and networks, publications, methods and new technology as well as changes in business operations and behaviour targeting sustainable solutions. The results also confirm firm-level business value as a driver for sustainability and provide experiences from involving users in the quest for sustainable and responsible innovation.

    Innovation ecosystem challenges: - Experiences from socially critical digitalization projects2023In: Proceedings of the XXXIV ISPIM Innovation Conference: Innovation and Circular Economy, 2023Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Solving many current societal challenges requires collaboration between numerous actors from different disciplines. However, there are several challenges in these interdisciplinary collaborations that have managerial implications, which this article aims to describe. The study is based on observations and fourteen interviews with actors from three innovation ecosystems (IES) that attack the challenges with the help of digitalization and enabling technology. Examples of identified challenges are difficulties for participating competitors to cooperate, that actors may feel threatened by the approaching result from the collaboration, that the actors may have different underlying motives for participating in the IES, and difficulties for actors to understand each other due to different domain knowledge.

    Frågor hon ser fram mot att lyfta i bloggform är blanda annat hur innovationsprocesser ser ut i utveckling av förnybar energi, och på vilket sätt olika aktörer samarbetar med tvärvetenskapliga forskningsteam. Men även hur man utvecklar nya material och använder solceller på skyskrapor i San Francisco.

    Klimatfrågan är ju aktuell och det känns viktigt att även förmedla hur detta diskuteras i andra länder. Just nu arbetar jag med forskning om innovationer och miljö, och skriver en text om en cleantech-konferens i Washington DC där jag deltog, säger Katarina Larsen.

    Innovation Processes and Environmental Planning: Science and Technology Policies in a Regional Context2005Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    The understanding of environmental change and how it is influenced by innovation processes and advances in science and technology is multifaceted given the inherent uncertainty of the pace and direction of technology change, but also given the limits to anticipate future environmental effects of new technology.

    The doctoral thesis is organised in two parts. The covering essay constitutes the first part and is aimed at introducing the scope of the research; outlining theoretical perspectives and central concepts and positioning the research to other research studies. Reprints of the six papers included in the thesis comprise the second part of the thesis.

    The first aim of this doctoral thesis is to contribute to an increased understanding of the conditions for environmental policy and planning through innovation, science policy and technological change. Particular attention is paid to the institutional frameworks for policy processes, public-private interactive policy and strategic planning with futures studies. The second aim is to explore and analyse approaches applied for assessing the output, impact and structure of science in the area of strategic environmental research. This includes an examination of research assessment criteria and an analysis of knowledge networks in strategic environmental research, characterised by socio-economic expectations of generating innovations that benefit the environment through the industrial application of science. Four types of environmental planning are studied using a combined qualitative and quantitative research approach. These are corporate environmental planning, public environmental planning, strategic long-term planning, and strategic science planning targeting advances in science and technology to attain environmental objectives.

    The findings of the study show that institutional frameworks of science and technology policy affecting environmental planning are found in organisational forms, such as science parks, but also in institutions understood as values and norms of the science system. With an increased focus on assessment of research as well as future technology, the findings of the study also contributes by examining approaches applied for assessing the output, structure and impact of research, using bibliometrics and social network analysis in the area of strategic environmental research.

    Interdisciplinarity in environmental technology applications - Examining knowledge interaction between physics and chemistry research teams2007In: Proceedings of ISSI 2007: 11th International Conference of the International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics, Vols I and II / [ed] TorresSalinas, D; Moed, HF, LEUVEN: INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR SCIENTOMETRICS & INFORMETRICS-ISSI , 2007, p. 463-468Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines interdisciplinarity in science-based environmental technology applications including nanoscience applications in solar cell technology and sensor technology for pollution monitoring (of for example vehicle exhaust gas). Data and methods include analysis of co-authorship links, citation data combined with content analysis and interviews with researchers active in the field. Interdisciplinarity of science and technology areas has been analysed at the level of researcher affiliation, journal type and keywords. In addition to these measures of interdisciplinarity, this study acknowledges the importance to recognise the character of links. This includes both their content and the context that generates interdisciplinary links between research teams trough citations or co-authorships interaction. To illustrate this, the knowledge networks of two research teams from the same university are examined and visualised using bibliographic coupling and co-authorship networks. The findings show that although there are no direct co-authorship links between the two research teams in the dataset analysed, links were identified though bibliographic coupling. In examining the context generating a shared reference between the research teams, one of the teams show citation patterns described here as "interdisciplinary outlook" compared to the "intradisciplinary magnifier" pattern of the other research team.

    Abstract [en]

    This study on co-authorship networks in the area of nanostructured solar cells aims to contribute to a further understanding of the use of research evaluation measures of science output, impact and structure in an emerging research field. The study incorporates quantitative bibliometric methods of analysis and social network analysis in combination with a qualitative case study research approach. Conclusions drawn from the results emphasise, firstly, the importance of distinguishing between early and later phases of the evolution of a novel research field, and secondly, the application of a systemic view on learning processes and knowledge diffusion in a science-based technology field.

    Managing the complexity of centres of excellence: accommodating diversity in institutional logics2019In: Tertiary Education and Management, ISSN 1358-3883, p. 1-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses how Centres of Excellence (CoE) and the existence of several logics in these centres can contribute to the differentiation of the strategic profiles of universities. The study sees research centres as a way to organize research activities in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in order to target both excellence but also societal challenges through focused thematic research. It reveals how societal challenges and their interpretation by these centres contribute to the differentiation of the strategic profiles of universities. Studies of centres of excellence programs in Sweden and Japan reveal differences in how their mission is formulated for relevance and excellence. The results indicate that contrasting missions of HEIs are accommodated through the dual logics of these centres relating both to autonomy and industry collaboration. The study shows that long-term funding gives these centres flexibility to set the agenda and focus on their strategic core activities. In other words, a logic of autonomy guides their strategic choices of research activities over the long-run as well as collaborators. Nevertheless, these centres are also developing strategies to cope with dilemmas stemming from the excellence-relevance and evaluation templates that emerge in the nexus of their collaborative ties with industry, government and universities.

    Research assessment criteria and university-industry links in the social contract of applicable science: Experiences from funding of biomedical science andstrategic environmental research in Sweden and the UK2003Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is concerned with research assessment procedures adopted by funding agents that target research with industrial applications and close links to socio-economic goals. The funding bodies of research are confronted with a ‘cry for applicability’ although it is argued that research and innovation are highly uncertain activities where all applications of science cannot be foreseen. This paper argues that analysis research funding with a strong rationale for ‘applicable’ science (such as private non-profit and strategic research foundations) can contribute to an improved understanding of university-industry relations in research. The aim of this study is to address what characterises the research assessment criteria used by funding agents that target research with industrial application and close links to socio-economic goals.Special attention is paid to university-industry links in the social contract for ‘applicable’science in Sweden and the UK. Case studies from research funding in biomedical science and strategic environmental research are selected to address the assessment procedures and criteria that research-funding organisations use to assess prospects of successful application of science. A typology addressing views on university-industry relations is used to characterise the case studies. The study shows that the foundations and trusts are attributing value to university-industry interaction in research. Promotion of such links is focusing on aspects ofhuman resources, best practices and intellectual property in targeting socio-economic goals.

    Rhetoric of engineering skills and heroes: institutional logics of university-industry relations in engineering education2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Engineering education and narratives told about engineers’ roles in society are study objects at the heart of organizational studies discussing professions and how engineering ideals are narrated, institutionalized and moulded into practices and categories of knowledge and skills. This study engages with the topics of educational mission of universities and university-industry relations as transfer activities by raising a set of questions about engineering narratives and university rhetoric of academia-industry relations.

    Science and technology parks and the integration of environmental policy2004In: Innovation, ISSN 1447-9338, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 294-305Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses processes of integration of environmental policy in science and technology parks (S&T parks). Drivers for environmental policy integration in two S&T park districts are explored in the framework of environmental policy opportunities, i.e. what opportunities of environmental policy integration that arise given characteristic features of the parks, such as spatial proximity, stakeholder interaction, and the park's role in regional innovation policy. The study focuses on ICT-companies and the environmental policy opportunities arising from vertical and horizontal interaction in the park context. Rather than assuming interaction by virtue of geographic proximity, the study shows that knowledge exchange on environmental aspects to some extent is localised within the park by exchange of best practices among individual firms as well by guidelines implemented at a park level. However, drivers promoting environmental management in ICT-companies are identified both at the firm level as well as in environmental regulation and customer demands.

    The impact of R&D on innovation for wind energy in Denmark, Germany and the United Kingdom2005In: Ecological Economics, ISSN 0921-8009, E-ISSN 1873-6106, Vol. 54, no 2-3, p. 227-240Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the impact of public research and development (R&D) support on cost reducing innovation for wind turbine farms in Denmark, Germany and the United Kingdom (UK). First we survey the literature in this field. The literature indicates that in Denmark R&D policy has been more successful than in Germany or the UK in promoting innovation of wind turbines. Furthermore, such studies point out that (subsidy-induced) capacity expansions were more effective in the UK and Denmark in promoting cost-reducing innovation than in Germany. The second part of the paper describes the quantitative analysis of the impact of R&D and capacity expansion on innovation. This is calculated using the two-factor learning curve (2FLC) model, in which investment cost reductions are explained by cumulative capacity and the R&D based knowledge stock. Time-series data were collected for the three countries and organized as a panel data set. The parameters of the 2FLC model were estimated, focusing on the homogeneity and heterogeneity of the parameters across countries. We arrived at robust estimations of a learning-by-doing rate of 5.4% and a learning-by-searching rate of 12.6%. The analysis underlines the homogeneity of the learning parameters, enhancing the validity of the 2FLC formulation.

    Climate changes affect regions all over the world. Sea level rise, high tides, storms and floods enhance the vulnerability of urban waterfront territories and deeply affect the quality of human life. European Commission points out that urban areas, where 4 out of 5 Europeans now live, are exposed to the adverse effects of climate change but are often ill-equipped to adapt to them. Lasting solutions, efficient and imaginative strategies create more resilient cities, support a sustainable urban waterfront and improve healthy communities – these factors are essential to sustain life on the waterfront.

    Industrial research institutes' collaboration: a three-way solution to integrating new research skills2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Innovation processes in emerging fields of technology frequently utilize scientific knowledge and technical skills from several research areas. Likewise, technological development frequently involves a diverse set of organizations including for example private firms, universities, corporate research labs and public or semi-public research and technology organizations (RTOs). These processes spur the need for both organizational and institutional change and adjustment, e.g. in order to facilitate research and development (R&D) and formation of innovation networks. The main question analyzed in the paper is how RTOs cope with integrating new skills in their competence base in the quest for exploring new emerging science fields and technology applications. The empirical setting consists of Swedish semi-public industrial research institutes active in the fields of pulp & paper technology and electronics, optics & communication technology respectively. The results of the study bring attention to three ways of integrating diverse skills and types of actors in R&D networks. These are: organization of collaborative research in formalized industry-specific R&D programs, purposeful organizational change also including redefinition of categories of core research competence and finally by targeting ‘open’ innovation processes characterized by incorporation of both end-users and skills of neighboring technology areas.

    Organisational identities, boundaries, and change processes of technical universities.2020In: Technical Universities - Past, Present and Future / [ed] Geschwind, Broström and Larsen, Springer Nature, 2020Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The volume is concerned with how technical universities respond to external influences but also are guided by internal processes of identity formation and reshaping of ideals and boundaries. In this chapter, we present two lines of inquiry and introduce the chapter contributions of the volume. An overarching question driving our research is what it means to be, or not to be, a technical university. The two main lines of inquiry, both related to the organisational identity of technical universities, are focusing on: (i) formation of ideals and boundaries and (ii) responses to change and how it relates to formation and re-negotiations of identity. Empirically, the volume limits its scope to Europe drawing on experiences from various national contexts. The empirical analysis focuses on identity formation processes but is nevertheless informed about ideas (and ideals) associated with technical universities.
