Congratulations to CenSE researcher Lina Bjerke Lina who has been granted SEK 5.3 million for the project "Competence provision for innovation and entrepreneurship in rural areas"


The research group will study how the technology shifts that are now leading to significant changes in the labor market affect rural skills needs and skills availability, what effects it has on labor demand and how to solve challenges related to this.

"Based on the structures of different locations, we in the research group will investigate the conditions for attracting skills both from the local labor market and a broader geographic labor market. The goal is for the project's research results to be used to develop a pilot model at Campus Västervik for strengthened skills availability in small businesses," says Lina Bjerke, Project Manager. The project is carried out in collaboration with Campus Västervik.
