MORE – Mobility and Organizing in Research into Entrepreneurship
The MORE research group work in close collaboration with other researchers and other research groups, both internally within the department of Management and Engineering, and within Linkoping University in general (with HELIX VINN Excellence Centre www.liu.se/helix and REMESO www.isv.liu.se/remeso).
The mobility of the organizational landscape, the organizing principles and prerequisites of entrepreneurship of various kinds in society are among the interest areas. Change on all levels, global, national, organizational and individual create and are created by organizational change. The ongoing change processes create new forms of organizations and/or new ways to organize, but also new ways of labeling old organizations and established ways to organize. Apart from organizational theory of various kinds as well as entrepreneurship theories, gender and/or ethnicity are perspectives taken into account in many of our studies. Organizational changes that are currently underway in the wake of the public sector’s transformation is an of the empirical points of departure in many of the projects.
