Applied Social Science Research in a Regional Knowledge System: Balancing validity, meaning and convenience
Linnaeus University, Faculty of Technology, Department of Physics and Electrical Engineering.
2016 (English)Collection (editor) (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This book illustrates how applied social scientists and their research are integrated with stakeholders and practitioners in a local/regional setting, and how knowledge development is a mutual concern, made in, and dependent on, ongoing dialogue. Focusing on the Agder region, the southernmost region in Norway, researchers and contributors question what impact the changing economic environment will have on applied researchers around the world. Applied research is seen as a vital part of the infrastructure for economic and social development, in the Agder region and beyond. The chapters are divided into four parts: the spatial dimension of knowledge development; understanding regional practice; explaining regional practice; influencing regional social practice. A useful resource for both policy makers and researchers, the book helps readers reflect on the type of mutual competence building that applied social science research implies, and depends on, in a regional knowledge development process. It represents a voice on how to understand the development of the knowledge society at regional and global levels. © 2017 selection and editorial matter, Hans Christian Garmann Johnsen, Elisabet S. Hauge, May-Linda Magnussen and Richard Ennals; individual chapters, the contributors.
