Congratulations to Karin Hellerstedt, assistant professor of business administration, together with CEnSE member Lucia Naldi, professor, Mattias Nordqvist, professor at JIBS and the Stockholm School of Economics, who were granted SEK 8 million for the project: "Revitalizing entrepreneurship in rural areas: the role of business ownership".

The project will study how rural businesses can survive in the long term and how they can develop by becoming less dependent on their current owners.

"The project consists of four sub-studies to create an understanding of how different types of ownership can enable business development and survival in the long term. Through close cooperation with business representatives in the counties of Jönköping and Norrbotten, we will be able to conduct relevant research and help spread our results," says Project Manager Karin Hellerstedt.

The project is carried out in collaboration with regional stakeholders from Jönköping County and Norrbotten County.
