    Regional cooperative and competitive forces driving industry cluster development and renewal2011Ingår i: Journal of Rural and Community Development, ISSN 1712-8277, E-ISSN 1712-8277, Vol. 6, nr 1, s. 22-48Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This research paper assembles regional industry clusters cooperative and competitive relations into a conceptual framework and reports upon an empirical case study that captured initial developments of a regional biorefinery industry cluster in a peripheral region of Sweden. Key findings from the research illustrate how forces of intra-regional cooperation and inter-regional competition drove the new biorefinery industry clusters development, which in turn aided the peripheral regions renewal efforts. For the development and renewal of regional industry, the role of not-for-profit collaborative organisations is evident. As a result, this single case-study provides new implications for research and practice in specific relation to regional renewal and industry cluster development within peripheral regions.

    Understanding regional renewal and industry cluster emergence processes within the Swedish periphery2010Licentiatavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    There are many insightful writings revealing that regions within industrialised nations are able to renew their local business environments through building and supporting industry clusters. Such knowledge stems from research based on how to maintain and develop successful industry clusters located within central regions. Although such knowledge is valuable for both researchers and practitioners, little is known about the processes involved when new industry clusters are emerging; and especially when they are emerging in peripheral regions. To that background, the purpose of this licentiate thesis is to develop further understanding of regional renewal and industry cluster emergence within peripheral regions.

    The thesis is based on a series of covering chapters and three research papers. Each of the three research papers contributes to the aim of this study and the research questions that are brought forward within the covering chapters. With aims of developing theory and providing empirical illustration of regional renewal and industry cluster emergence the research questions used to guide this particular research are: How does a new industry cluster emerge within a peripheral region and what are the main processes involved? What role does the interaction between new regional industry and established regional industry play in facilitating industry cluster emergence? What core co-operative and competitive forces drive such emergence efforts? Relevant empirical material brought forward to help answer these questions is based stems from within the peripheral Swedish county of Västernorrland and specifically centres on the emergence of a new biorefinery industry cluster in the Örnsköldsvik region. A conceptual framework outlining structural-organisational, socio-institutional and cognitive perspectives of regional renewal is employed to help govern the study and aid discussion of the three individual research papers appended.

    Overall, and in a very condensed format, the papers related to this licentiate thesis reveal that industry cluster emergence within a peripheral region can be supported by bottom-up efforts that encapsulate social movement framing activities, dialectical interplays as well as regional competitive and co-operative forces. In particular, interactions between new regional industry and established industry entities can play a key role in the process; mainly through established actors responding to local resource and legitimacy threats that have potential to reduce the region’s opportunities for renewal. Moreover, new industry actors’ mobilisations provide an ‘anti-thesis’ to local traditional industry that restrain but also trigger development. This is found to be crucial to overcome traditional regional actors’ contestation to new industry entities. As such it seems a set of core processes that interact and shape regional industry cluster emergence can be categorised and described as framing processes, movement mobilisation processes, inter-industry relational processes and dialectical processes. Furthermore prominent regional competitive and competitive forces driving industry cluster emergence are revealed to be intra and inter-regional. Those forces can have strong implications for regional renewal in the periphery. As this research focuses upon how a new regional industry cluster can emerge within a peripheral region dominated by declining traditional industries, that is able, but not without difficulties, to aid regional renewal the thesis contributes to further theoretical and practical understanding of regional renewal and industry cluster emergence theories. Thus, offering relevant implications for future researchers, regional policy makers and industry cluster developers interested in peripheral regional development issues.

    Who is a "real" competitor and who is not?: A study of competitive and co-operative dynamics within an emerging Swedish cluster2009Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to complement prior research on competitive and cooperative dynamics within regional clusters. Through a longitudinal investigation I observed the role cooperation and competition played when large and small firms, located in a traditionally strong but currently struggling region of Sweden, interacted during the establishment of a new industry cluster. Qualitative data, consisting of interviews and documents, were coded into first-order categories, second-order themes, and overarching dimensions. Literature on institutional entrepreneurship was used as an interpretative framework. Subsequently for small and large firms working together in regional cluster initiatives, in which cooperation is a natural component, this single case study suggests that localised and institutionalised competition play a key role in their successive regional clustering trajectories.

    Entrepreneurial initiatives as threats: how seasoned industry actors hinder regional restructuring2009Ingår i: 54th International Council for Small Business World Conference, Seoul, Korea: ICSB , 2009Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper was to further understanding of regional restructuring and revitalisation by illustrating how opportunities for regional renewal may be reduced by rigid threat responses by a region’s established actors within declining industries. In an inductive case study of new biorefinery industry initiatives in a region where traditional forestry industries were in decline, we outline how new industry players that created new ways of using existing resources sparked rigid threat responses among established actors. When seasoned industry actors framed new industry initiatives as threats, they responded by (a) reducing new industry actors’ possibilities for new business development, (b) engaging in entrenched resistance, (c) creating collaborative illusions, and (d) undermining the fundamentals of the new industry. Our study contributes to literature by applying the threat-rigidity thesis on a regional level and by illustrating that conflicting behaviours between new and established industry actors can make restructuring and revitalisation problematic.

    Reduced opportunities for regional renewal: The role of rigid threat responses among a region's established firms2011Ingår i: Entrepreneurship and Regional Development, ISSN 0898-5626, E-ISSN 1464-5114, Vol. 23, nr 7-8, s. 603-635Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article illustrates how opportunities for regional renewal in a peripheral region may be reduced by rigid threat responses undertaken by established firms operating within traditional regional industry. In an inductive case study of new biorefinery industry initiatives in a region where traditional pulp-and-paper and forestry industry was in decline, we used primary and secondary data to outline how a set of new industry players who created innovative ways of using existing regional infrastructures and resources sparked rigid threat responses among established firms from the struggling traditional industry. Established industry firms framed new industry initiatives as threats, and responded by (1) reducing new industry actors' possibilities for new business development, (2) engaging in entrenched resistance, (3) creating collaborative illusions and (4) undermining the fundamentals of the new industry. Consequently, this study contributes to existing literature by proposing the potential of applying the threat-rigidity thesis on a regional level. This is achieved by illustrating that conflicting behaviours between new and established regional industry actors constrain opportunities for regional renewal in a peripheral region. As such, relevant directions for future research and policy implications are outlined.

    When a new industry meets traditional and declining ones: An integrative approach towards dialectics and social movement theory in a model of regional industry emergence processes2010Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 26, nr 3, s. 290-308Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper takes an integrative approach towards dialectics and social movement theories in a model of regional industry emergence processes. Based on an inductive qualitative investigation we describe how a new industry emerges in a declining and peripheral region dominated by struggling and traditional local industry. The emanating model of regional industry emergence is based on four main processes; framing processes, movement mobilisation processes,inter-industry relational processes and dialectical processes, which together shape the emerging regional industry. This exemplifies how new regional industry mobilisation efforts provide an ‘anti-thesis’ to traditional industry, and how established industry actors respond with contestation to protect their business concepts. Furthermore we illustrate how new industry actors reframe their concepts to complement dominating traditional industry and to overcome tensions and conflicts. Following dialectic interaction between new and traditional industry wenoticed signs of acceptance and synthesis between the newly formed and old industry actors; ultimately resulting in a revitalisation of the region’s traditional industry. As such, this article makes a point of accounting for agency and productive conflict when understanding regional industry renewal and emergence.

    Enacting industry cluster renewal through interregional university pipelines2010Ingår i: Proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on Entrepreneurs, Innovation and Regional Development - ICEIRD 2010, Novi Sad, Serbia: Faculty of Technical Sciences, Novi Sad , 2010Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores how interregional links to universities may renew industry cluster development in a peripheral region. The empirical setting is an automobile testing cluster that emerged, grew and maturing in a remote Swedish region. The findings exemplify that whilst maturing, renewal opportunities were sought through linkages with universities located farther field. It is found that due to an imbalance of motives, challenges in developing the links were experienced. Yet the challenges are found to resolve through what we term an ‘interregional sensemaking process’; resulting in pipelines opening up to renew business activities in the setting. Implications for regional development arise and new avenues for future research are suggested.

    Renewing industry cluster development via interregional industry-university links2011Ingår i: International Journal of Innovation and Regional Development, ISSN 1753-0660, E-ISSN 1753-0679, Vol. 3, nr 6, s. 604-631Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The importance of developing regional industry clusters has grown alongside the need for industries and universities to be more interlinked. A regional automotive testing industry cluster, located in the north of Sweden, is the innovative empirical setting for this research paper. Following the logic of induction, it is discovered that as the regional industry reached a certain maturity, renewal was sought via developing links to universities within other regions in Sweden. A conceptual sensemaking lens is used to theorise upon the links thus formed and to develop new insights into regional industry renewal processes and interregional industry-university links. Practical insights stemming from the case are also explained, and future research directions provided.

    A study of establishment processes and entrepreneurial industry emergence in a Swedish region facing difficulties2008Ingår i: 53rd International Council for Small Business World Conference, Halifax, Canada: ICSB , 2008Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores establishment processes of a new industry located in a peripheral region of Sweden that is based upon old traditional industries in decline. Based on a qualitativestudy, we identify how actors within the new industry interact and intervene with the existing infrastructures and institutions that support the old local industry while trying to build new infrastructures. We identify key restricting and supporting mechanisms for theestablishment processes, with implications for policy and regional and entrepreneurship research.
