More about the project
Research within the subject internationalisation and international affairs highlights learning as key for both expansion and growth. There is also evidence that learning takes place both within and between companies. Through interactions, actions and intentions, the basis for learning between people and between companies is formed.
Another insight to which this research has contributed is basically a better understanding of the company in a larger market context. Here the terms network and cluster are central. Creating conditions for growth is based on relations, the use of different types of knowledge and the ability to convert technical skills to practical ability.
Together with Interior Cluster Sweden AB we want to create a deeper understanding for all the activities, interactions and actions that lead to internationalisation.
What are the workspaces and contexts that individuals and companies learn to internationalise?
How can companies, through actions, convert technical knowledge into practical abilities?
What actors are really involved in a learning process?
All these questions raise great curiosity, where the follow-up research can contribute with insight and understanding together with professional individuals and companies.
