CEnSE celebrates 10 years!

The Centre for Entrepreneurship and Spatial Economics (CEnSE) celebrates its 10th anniversary in December 2020.  

The centre was born out of Jönköping International Business School’s Research Unit for Rural Entrepreneurship and Growth (RUREG), which in the autumn of 2010 was transformed into CEnSE, thereby departing from a purely rural focus to incorporating issues surrounding urbanization and regional development within its research topics.

“The research we do here at CEnSE is about regional development and economic geography. We look at not only what people do and what firms produce, but where they do it. So, the location is important for the economic outcomes,” explains CEnSE Director, Johan Klaesson.

Looking ahead, CEnSE has clear ambitions for the next 10 years:

“We want to continue our high-quality research, keep increasing our network and stay relevant. It’s important for us that the centre’s research is closely aligned to what is happening in the policy landscape, and that we are helpful to businesses and society in the future.”
