Abstract [en]

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this study is shed light on the underlying forces behind entrepreneurship within a regional innovation system (RIS) in a remote rural region. The authors examine the following questions: Which are the main underlying forces behind the entrepreneurial process in a rural RIS characterized by traditionally low-tech, small-scale businesses? How can the development of a low-tech regional innovation system be conceptualized?

DESIGN/METHODOLOGY/APPROACH

The design of the study is based on entrepreneurship theory. Data analysis followed practices used in phenomenography, a research approach used to analyse and identify commonalities and variations in populations' perceptions of a certain phenomenon. Data are composed using semi-structured interviews and a database composed of company information of all firms in the population.

FINDINGS

A proactive mobilization of regional stakeholders and resources can be an important driving force behind the entrepreneurial process and generation of a rural RIS. Innovation can be generated within low-tech industries turning the rural context into an asset. An RIS in a remote rural context can be initiated and orchestrated by regional authorities, but knowledge brokering and orchestration can also be managed by networks of small-scale businesses brought together by mutual benefit and common interests.

RESEARCH LIMITATIONS/IMPLICATIONS

Regional innovation systems theory is most often used to study high-tech industries. But by combining regional innovation systems with rural entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship context theory is a fruitful avenue to understand the role of rural entrepreneurship in regional development, even in remote and peripheral regions. Innovation does not need to entail high-tech international environments; it can appear as the result of efforts in low-tech industries in rural and remote environments. The authors’ findings need to be scrutinized; therefore, the authors call for more research on regional innovation systems in rural environments.

PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS

It is possible for regional authorities to orchestrate a development process through the actions of a strong regional agent but also by supporting the creation of networks of small businesses that are built on trust and common interests.

ORIGINALITY/VALUE

This study contributes to the literature with a new perspective to the study of entrepreneurship and of regional innovation systems. Entrepreneurship research with focus on rural contexts most often highlight limits to entrepreneurship and see entrepreneurship as “just running a business”. A perspective that starts from innovation and innovative behaviour, despite the rural context and embedded resources, helps to generate new knowledge that can enrich the understanding of entrepreneurship and also be the foundation for more precise business development policies in rural settings.

Abstract [en]

The aim is to advance the conceptualisation of island entrepreneurship by investigating how theisland context, for example, industry characteristics, social context and formal and informal institutions,influences the development of artisan food businesses in that context. An applied, qualitative and participatory research approach wasimplemented. Data were collected during a business development process focusing on food artisans in theAland Islands. In total, 19 business owners participated in the process. Key informants and public officers wereinterviewed, and the literature was reviewed. Interviews were analysed using phenomenography to identifyrepresentative categories, and the literature was analysed using content analysis. Island characteristics and context, local institutions, the quality of social capital and genderedinstitutions influence business activities positively and negatively. Island entrepreneurship entails mobilisingagencies to find innovative solutions that enable businesses to overcome obstacles. Most previous research treats business activities as entrepreneurship; however, as self-employment is essential in the island context,it should be highlighted in future studies. This study illustrates how the island context influences the businessdevelopment of small firms. Results indicate that local policies (1) benefitting female entrepreneurs, (2)supporting local businesses and (3) promoting locally produced artisan food could generate benefits for theentire artisan food businesses. Local policies that (1) benefit female entrepreneurs, (2) support local businesses and(3) promote locally produced artisan food have the potential to generate benefits for the entire trade. Policies canbenefit from an understanding of the role played by different ecosystem actors. Promoting self-employmentcan generate benefits for the local entrepreneurial ecosystem by providing agglomeration and helping to solvesome challenges caused by the characteristics of islands. Empirically, this research enhances the knowledge of post-productive responses in theisland context. Theoretically, the study advances the conceptualisation of research on the islandentrepreneurship context and the local food debate.

Abstract [en]

The lion’s share of entrepreneurship research highlights conditions in core regions, while entrepreneurship in peripheral areas has been less studied. This longitudinal study aims at exploring the interplay between the peripheral contexts of island and archipelago communities and firm outcomes - paying special attention to spatial variations and non-linear temporal dimensions. We focus on the survival of all firms active on 17 islands in the Stockholm archipelago, Sweden during a 20-year period (2000-2019). Using longitudinal multilevel modelling, we find that - despite being a seemingly ‘homogeneous’ place - spatial and temporal variations, however small, would have substantial effects on the conditions for everyday entrepreneurship in these communities. Our results show that firms located on islands with higher population density and seasonal dependability face increased probabilities of exit, while access to digital ecosystems, local services in the form of kindergartens, and year-round grocery stores decrease the probabilities of exit. Islands with thicker institutional context, indicating trust and community support, lead to higher survival rates.

Abstract [en]

Purpose – The paper contributes to the debate about local food and conceptualization of ruralentrepreneurship by analysing the performance of small-scale dairies departing from their relation toinnovations, innovative activities and risk.

Design/methodology/approach – The authors use phenomenography to identify representative categories,and to draw conclusions about how these are consistent or different from dominant definitions of ruralentrepreneurship and self-employment. The authors conducted semi-structured interviews, participatoryworkshops and compiled a database of all small-scale dairies established between 1968 and 2020.

Findings – A focus on innovations contributes to differentiate between rural entrepreneurship and selfemployment and how these interact in the process of economic growth. Innovations are seldom disruptive.Instead, innovative behaviour is strongly related to business models and to imitation. Social capital andcollective action play a key role for the innovative capacity of small businesses, especially to realize disruptiveinnovations, such as the establishment of a new market.Research

limitations/implications – The innovative capacity of rural businesses can be understoodthrough their ability to break patterns, alter institutions and turn embededdness into assets. Rural entrepreneurship and self-employment are intertwined in the economic growth process.

Practical implications – Innovative behaviour is a significant aspect for firm survival over time, and it isalso strongly related to new business models. Most rural firms can be characterized as self-employment, thelatter are essential because they provide rural livelihoods and help bring maturity to newly establishedmarkets.

Social implications – The right type of support, e.g. adopting enabling industrial regulations and grantingaccess to constructive experiences of others, contributes to the innovative behaviour of small-scale rural firms.

Originality/value – This study differentiates rural entrepreneurship from rural self-employment byanalysing the role of innovation. The authors show how innovations and innovative behaviour work their waythrough the process of economic growth and how innovation can break patterns by turning ruralembeddedness into assets; and how innovative behaviour related to self-employments contributes to thecreation of value and interacts with entrepreneurship in the process of economic growth.

Abstract [en]

Covid-19 increased the social and economic vulnerability of island societies. Swedishislands are key tourism destinations but are also home to many island residents. Previous studies have highlighted the impact of Covid-19 on core areas, but our knowledge of its impact on island communities is lacking. We use phenomenology to analyse how communities in small Swedish islands perceive the impact ofCovid-19. We use institutional theory and the concepts of social capital and accessibility in the analysis.Data were collected through semi-structured interviews and focus groups with islanders and representatives of local organizations on sampled islands. Pandemic regulations affected island communities differently.Authorities and shipping companies strove to discourage people from visiting islands. This affected tourismnegatively in some islands, whereas tourism increased in others. Informal institutions established a basis forgood community relations; enabled the mobilization of social capital, especially given action by local agentswho were endorsed by the community. Cooperation was a key to reducing negative impact. Accessibilityincreased on islands with well-developed and expanded IT-infrastructure that enabled holiday homeownersto work from their holiday islands. This helped create a sustained positive economic trend for grocery storesand the construction industry

Abstract [es]

La Covid-19 aumentó la vulnerabilidad social y económica de las sociedades insulares.Las islas suecas son destinos turísticos clave y hogar para muchos isleños. Estudios anteriores destacan elimpacto de la Covid-19 en áreas centrales, pero nuestro conocimiento sobre su impacto en comunidadesinsulares es escaso. Usamos la fenomenología para analizar cómo las comunidades en pequeñas islas suecasperciben el impacto de la Covid-19. El trabajo realizado emplea conceptos de teoría institucional, capitalsocial y accesibilidad. Los datos se recopilaron vía entrevistas semiestructuradas y grupos focales conempresarios y representantes de organizaciones locales. Las regulaciones de la pandemia tuvieron unimpacto diferente según islas. Las autoridades y las compañías navieras actuaron para que el público se abstuviera de visitar las islas. Esto afectó negativamente al turismo en algunas islas y positivamente en otras.Las instituciones informales que llevaron a buenas relaciones comunitarias, posibilitaron la movilización decapital social, especialmente cuando agentes activos avalados por la comunidad actuaron. La cooperaciónfue clave para reducir el impacto negativo. La accesibilidad aumentó en las islas con buena infraestructurade IT y permitió que isleños y dueños de casas de veraneo trabajaran desde sus respectivas islas. Este últimohecho creó una tendencia económica positiva sostenida en los sectores de alimentación y construcción.

Abstract [en]

This article highlights the development of modern food practices and food regulations in Sweden with special emphasis on food safety and food security from the late 19th century to 1950s. The results are linked to the wider discussion about modernization and societal change in Sweden and includes industrial organization in the agro-food sector, technological development, and the reality experienced by the population during decades that were heavily influenced by the consequences of two world wars and the rise of the welfare state.

Abstract [en]

This chapter studies the internationalization of the Swedish–Danish dairy corporation Arla. During a period of 100 years the dairy sector went from being at the focus of national and regional interest, the industry has become global. In some geographical markets, or in particular market areas, these transnationals – corporations as well as cooperatives – may compete fiercely, and their growth strategy is often to merge with or acquire local producers. However, these multinational firms also actively cooperate in other areas (e.g. in branding or distribution) or on other geographical markets. This may take the form of strategic alliances, such as joint ventures. Thus, coopetition – cooperation and competition – has been a common recent strategy. In the case at focus in this study, Arla Foods a.m.b.a. mergers are conducted with cooperatives in European countries, while businesses that are located further away are taken care of through exports and joint ventures. The main contribution of this article is that it employs internationalization theory and places the globalization of cooperatives in the middle of the academic discussion about internationalization. A recommendation for further studies is to both dig deeper into the changing nature of cooperatives historically, but also to look closer at the strategic deals that global expansion of cooperatives is based on.

Abstract [en]

This conference paper highlights the unanticipated conflicts and pedagogical challenges  arisen in a university 'food course'. Students are active in their critique against the subordinated role of animalsin the Anthropocene. In society, such views are limited to a small share ofthe population (24 % vegetarians and 1 % vegans in Sweden in 2018) and there are few arenas where ‘the vegan point of view’ can be included in the efforts to improve sustainability in the food industry. The course offered anopportunity to understand veganism and how to overcome the lack of dialogue between vegans and non-vegans in society, especially since 30 percent of the students are vegans and the rest are sympathetic to vegan ideals. Our main conclusion is that the challenges experienced during the course, especially concerning the normative aspects of veganism can contribute to the development of better didactic and pedagogical approaches for a changing society in which a higher awareness of ethical andenvironmental aspects are needed.
