Abstract [en]

In light of a recent research evaluation exercise carried out at Uppsala Universityin 2016 and 2017 (Quality and Renewal 2017), this study investigates the preconditionsand processes perceived to contribute to an enhanced embedded researchquality culture. The study draws on the results from a survey answered bynearly 3 700 research-active staff, including doctoral students. A mixed-methodsapproach is adopted based on both a quantitative binary logistic regression modelcombining significant factors from three survey-related themes and a qualitativeanalysis based on answers to open-ended questions. The results from the binarylogistic regression show that respondents who receive constructive feedback, haveaccess to good support and infrastructure, have a good social environment at thedepartment, and have a reliable funding situation have the highest odds ratios forperceiving the conditions for conducting high-quality research as good or verygood. These results are also supported by the analysis of the open-ended questions,lending validity to the conclusions.

Abstract [en]

This study investigates how geographic representations and regional industrial identity in news media are used to mobilize local/regional actors and to attract inward and outward investments by mediating and narrating stories of the recovery and rebirth of a region in distress – that is, how media contribute to economic development in or of the region. The study targets media attention covering the dismantling and relocation of two regionally embedded life science and likewise anchor firms: the Pharmacia and Upjohn merger in Uppsala in 1995 and the closure of AstraZeneca’s operations in Lund in 2010. By drawing on the method of framing and content analysis of news articles derived from a public media database, the analysis show that: (a) geographic representation and associations are intensified in times of media turbulence; (b) news coverage follows two subsequent phases (an initial ‘crisis’ phase and a following more optimistic ‘recovery’ phase) and (c) news media (as intermediary actors and arenas) by communicating ideas of a shared regional industrial identity contribute to the construction of a ‘perceived regional advantage’ (as understood and communicated by news media). Thus, regional industrial identity-building and how the region is perceived by internal and external audiences are important for regional development.

2014 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The changing nature of the retail industry is something that has been widely studied during the last few decades. On a more general level, these changes have involved, on the one hand, despite recent economic crises, a rapid expansion and growth of the retail industry, increased market entries and representation of transnational retail chain stores, and a growing interest in consumer behaviour and awareness. On the other hand, these changes also show clear spatial characteristics pointing to the importance of not only location, but also a wider geographical understanding of what, how and where these changes are taking place. This has come not least to involve numerous studies trying to understand the complex spatial nature of production/commodity chains of goods and services as well as the embeddedness of local and global networks of stores and retailers, but it has also generated inputs to a seemingly never-ending debate concerning the relocation of retail activities – foremost from inner-city, or high-street, locations to external retail establishments. In the Swedish media, this debate has come to focus on the availability of, and accessibility to, retail and services. This would typically involve discussions concerning the demise or impoverishment of the inner city, the closing down of rural or country stores, or an overall diminishing supply of necessary services. Besides a few governmental reports, the geography of changing retail conditions concerning the above is not a widely studied topic however. As Sweden is a sparsely populated country, it is not farfetched as to assume that these are important questions, especially when and if the availability of and accessibility of retail opportunities are being jeopardized. Thus, the purpose of the literature review at hand is to provide a general overview of the characteristics of and recent progress in the retail industry, and to give a short account of developments in Sweden.

Abstract [en]

Traditionally, literature on competitiveness has focused on innovation in networks and/or embedded in local/regional milieus. This paper examines the concept of quality and quality processes as an additional way of understanding the competitiveness of small and highly niched industries. In the theoretical framework, applied on the Swedish hi-fi industry, quality is identified as a promise and divided into three dimensions labelled performance, projection and protection. The quality framework provides a useful tool for analysing measurable and non-measurable aspects of quality sound and sound reproduction. Also, it is argued that competitiveness is stimulated when a product is associated with one of the quality dimensions and when a strong quality perception is inherent throughout the production network. Moreover, we find that quality processes are spatially embedded and that location facilitates both place-based branding and localised learning.
