Abstract [en]

In 2015, observers argued that the fourth agricultural revolution had been initiated. This article focuses on one part of this high-tech revolution: the origin, development, applications, and user value of unmanned aerial systems (UAS). Institutional changes connected to the UAS innovation are analyzed, based on a Swedish case study. The methods included autoethnography. The theoretical frame was composed by four perspectives: innovation, institutions, sustainability, and ethics. UAS can help farmers cut costs and produce higher quantity with better quality, and also has environmental benefits. However, this promising innovation was exposed to institutional forces and suddenly became subordinated the Act of Camera Surveillance. This study illuminates how legislative institutions can inhibit responsible innovation. The study shows that different ethical perspectives can collide with each other.

Abstract [en]

In this paper, we describe and discuss how in two CDIO-based entrepreneurship courses at Linköping University, Sweden, we encourage students to identify and solve challenges and problems in two adjacent industrial sectors, i.e., environmental technology and agricultural/green industries. Both courses are offered to a broad range of engineering programs. The industrial sectors chosen give the students a delimited context incorporating direction, business culture and technology, that forms a basis for the students on which to build their entrepreneurship cases. Working with real challenges gives real-life experience of how models and frameworks can be utilized and correctly executed. In addition, it increases project relevance, student motivation and learning.

One challenge to overcome is the fact that many students lack previous work-life experience and a thorough knowledge of the industrial sectors in focus. Experiences from earlier courses told us that this made it difficult for students identify and develop realistic, yet challenging and new business ideas on their own to. To remedy this, we tested facilitating interaction with industry, and through this help the students to detect real problems. Furthermore, it was anticipated that interaction with external actors, such as established businesses, organizations and potential customers, helps students to adjust and fine-tune needs and demands to create business ideas that could have real potential. As an added benefit, this approach could enable academia to act as co-creator in industrial problem solving, i.e., to put academic knowledge to practical use in society. Based on our own experiences and student feedback we discuss how this approach forced the students out of their comfort zones, challenged their creativity and enhanced their learning.

Abstract [en]

The CDIO framework encourages us to work with prototyping during the conceive and design phases integrated into engineering education. At Linköping university, we apply prototyping and working with simple mockups in several entrepreneurship and innovation courses in order to stimulate creative thinking and experimentation. We have seen that through working with a joint prototype, the students increase their level of engagement and self-confidence while learning to know each other, both as individuals, and according to their skills and competence. Prototyping events are appreciated as learning activities, not least as they signal a culture of playfulness and unpretentiousness within a course. We have also seen that it is important to inspire the participating students to reflect on the event in order to complete the learning process. In the paper we analyse and discuss our experience regarding how and at what time in a course simple prototypes can be used, how workshops can be developed, and what we have learned.

Abstract [en]

This paper analyses public support and argues that supply does not match demand in terms of the support needs of different types of new technology-based firms (NTBFs). The demand side of public support to NTBFs is analysed by developing a typology of NTBFs, based on venture origin and degree of innovativeness. Each types characteristics, challenges and support needs are identified. The supply side is analysed in terms of the goals, instruments and level of aggregation of the two main policy areas that provide support for NTBFs: small and medium-sized enterprise policy and science, technology and innovation policy. Finally, the demand and supply sides are compared and three main shortcomings of existing public support to NTBFs are identified. This paper makes a twofold contribution: first, the typology gives guidelines for policy-makers with respect to the support needs of the NTBFs. Second, it identifies shortcomings in existing public support and recommends improvements.

Abstract [sv]

Marknadsföring har alltid spelat en stor roll i samhället. Men spelplanen har förändrats och i dag har marknadsföring fått en delvis ny innebörd. Det har tillkommit nya dimensioner, såsom ekologisk och social hållbarhet, som företag måste förhålla sig till. Den här boken innehåller inte bara grund­stenarna i ämnet, utan även nya teorier och handfasta verktyg. Resonemangen förklaras och fördjupas genomgående med exempel och praktikfall. Boken genomsyras av kritisk analys. Författarna poängterar att marknadsföring framför allt handlar om att fördjupa förståelsen för kunder, användare och annat som påverkar marknaden. Vilket problem har kunden egentligen, det vill säga vilken nytta borde företaget skapa? Hur ser konkurrenternas lösningar ut? Vilka faktorer påverkar kundens preferenser och köpkraft? Genom att svara på sådana frågor kan man framgångsrikt välja väg för hur produktkonceptet bör designas och hur företaget ska kommunicera och interagera med sin omvärld.

Abstract [en]

This paper focuses on mixed methods for teaching and learning; with special emphasis on individualized learning and engagement of students for reaching better results and relevance in CDIO (Conceiving, Designing, Implementing and Operating)-based engineering education. Four types of learning activities are discussed in the paper; “flipped classroom”, “experiential learning exercises”, “sharp live cases” and “theory-based practical exercises”. The empirical material consists of the authors’ own teaching experience. Based on a literature review and our own experience, we propose a model of components crucial to take into account when learning activities are designed and practiced. These components are stakeholders, pedagogics, technology and context.

Abstract [en]

Small high-technology firms are a central element in technological innovation and economic growth; as such, they have attracted the attention of scholars and practitioners. In the last 20 years Ray Oakey has become an undisputed authority in this field. This volume of conceptual and empirical studies provides an overview of Ray Oakey’s exceptional career and work and of the most important topics in the field of high-technology entrepreneurship. It discusses the intricate dynamics between entrepreneurs, venture, and networks, as well as the issue of university-entrepreneurship interactions and other forms of public private partnerships in the field of high technology. The present volume contains diverse contributions in terms of both the methodology applied—from case studies to large scale surveys—as well as the fields and countries investigated and the theoretical frameworks applied, reflecting the broad scope of Ray Oakey’s thinking and writing.

Abstract [en]

Stora projekt som finansieras av EU utvärderas alltid. Men är dessa utvärderingar rättvisande? Letar man efter de verkliga och hållbara effekterna? Att fånga effekter av stora projekt är en svår uppgift. Inte minst beror det på att verkningarna kan vara av många olika slag - oväntade, icke avsedda, överraskande, dolda och ibland utanför målområdet. Det gör det inte mindre angeläget: dessa effekter kan vara viktigare än de planerade, avsedda och förväntade. I denna bok beskrivs resultatet av ett flertal analyser av utvecklings­arbete i stora projekt och program - i organisationer, på regional nivå, i nationella program med mera. Slutsatserna dras från teoretiska analyser samt från en lång rad empiriska studier. Boken vänder sig till forskare, regionalt utvecklingsansvariga och myndighetsföreträdare. Den kan användas i utbildning av olika slag - inom flera områden i högskolan och till projektledare, utvärderare, följeforskare och finansiärer samt projektägare.
