  • Cash register law crashed

    A recently published study from Jönköping International Business School (JIBS) at Jönköping University has shown that the introduction of cash registers requirements in Swedish businesses resulted in an immediate increase in turnover.

  • Sleep researchers evaluate later school start

    Starting in the autumn term 2024, Engelbrektskolan in Borås will delay the start of the school day for 8th and 9th-grade pupils to 09:00, one hour later than usual. This initiative, which will run throughout the school year, will be monitored by sleep researcher Malin Jakobsson from the School of Health and Welfare at Jönköping University. The aim is to investigate how a later start time affects students' sleep, mental health, and academic performance. Previous studies in other countries have shown positive results, and researchers now hope to confirm these findings in a Swedish context.
