    Evaluating Impact of Co-creation2018In: OpenLivingLab Days (OLLD) 2018, 2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Transnational Living Lab for Active Ageing is an ambitious research project across Sweden and Japan, with the aim of improving the experience of ageing through social design and innovation. A core challenge is loneliness, which is addressed through interventions in the remit of work/occupation, housing, mobility. The Languaging Loneliness workshop has been developed to fast forward exploration of individual and collective experience of loneliness to inform development of policies, products and services. Tests to date in Sweden and Japan indicate that the workshop itself can reduce experience of loneliness.

    The overall aim of this research is to explore evaluative frameworks and approaches fitting for the living lab community that genuinely capture innovative and unconventional methods directed at stimulating innovation and improving well being – emotional and physical, as exemplified by the Languaging Loneliness workshop.

    Expected Outcomes:

    – A comparison and map of different evaluative frameworks in the specific context of an intervention to reduce experience of loneliness.

    – Brainstorming of new approaches to evaluation in the specific context of social design and wellbeing/quality of life.

    – We anticipate that this workshop will take us further in capturing and communicating elusive emotional benefits of living lab approaches.

    Opportunity to participate in a rich discussion and community around the dilemmas, opportunities, future pathways to evaluation in the living lab context. Participants will get hands-on experience from a workshop that synergises science and art, opportunity to share experiences, engage in critical and creative discussions, and design new pathways for evaluation of co-creation, ready for trial in the home context.

    Den tredje åldern: - en kunskapsöversikt2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This literature review investigates the current knowledge base on the  third age and reflects on its implications for further research. It pays  special attention to how the third age has been defined and how the  concept has been discussed in different countries. When it comes to  empirical research, focus is mainly on Swedish circumstances and social  aspects. “Social aspects” is defined as issues concerning the relation  between people as well as the relation between individuals, public  organisations and the market.  The literature review uses a qualitative explorative analysis of  scientific literature written in Swedish and English. The analysed material  consists of 112 texts that are primarily written in sociology and social  gerontology, but also in social work, pedagogic and psychology. The  authors of the literature have mainly been active in Great Britain,  Sweden and the US, but also in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Finland,  France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Scotland and Germany. In  this literature review, 56 of the texts in the material are presented. These  references provide a representative picture of the content of the whole  material.  The result of the literature review shows that the history of the  concept “the third age” goes back to course activities at the University of  Michigan in the 1940s. However, the concept has been established in  Sweden during the last 10 years. The third age, as defined by researchers,  is a social life stage that starts with old-age retirement and ends with  dependency on others in order to manage everyday life. On the basis of  this definition, this life stage begins with an institutionalised transition  and ends with physical decline due to ageing. Typically, people in the  third age, are described as relatively wealthy and healthy (see for example  Carnegie 1993, Larsson 2007, Laslett 1989, Wink & James 2006).  Furthermore research has linked the meaning of the third age to a  specific life style distinguished by self-fulfilment and activity. “Third-  agers” are described as old-age pensioners who are independent, have  leisure time, are relatively wealthy and healthy and are directed towards  self-fulfilment through different types of activity. Rather than being a  social life stage that includes a heterogeneous group of older people,  social problems and possibilities, the third age turns into a homogenous  category of resourceful and active older people or a perspective that focuses  on the “positive” and “productive” aspects of later life.

    Äldrefattigdom: Ekonomisk utsatthet i yngre ålderspensionärers vardag2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    During the first decade of the 21st century in Sweden, inequality and risk rates of poverty have increased among young pensioners (between 65–74 years of age). A new public pension system, combined with demographic and economic developments, is expected to add further to these trends. Following this context, the aim of the present dissertation is to survey and understand patterns of economic hardship and its meaning in young pensioners’ everyday lives.

    The study design is qualitative and takes “subtle realism” as its philosophical theoretical starting point. Economic hardship represents the economic conditions faced by young pensioners who receive the housing supplement for pensioners. It is examined through a relative perspective on poverty. The empirical data primarily consists of interviews with 30 people who live with economic hardship and 17 people who live with comparatively better economic conditions. The theoretical framework consists of theories of social exclusion, coping and life course.

    The participants’ life histories show four paths to economic hardship – continuity, slope, fall and roller coaster. The last three have not been explicitly described in research before. In elderly life, young pensioners describe experiences of exclusion from the possibility to achieve healthy aging, independence, freedom of choice and meaningfulness, due to their economic hardship. When combined with psychological illness, social isolation, alcohol misuse, and restricted mobility, this exclusion becomes more severe. By focusing on favourable aspects of life and adjusting preferences to fit what has been achieved, young pensioners manage to feel satisfaction with their lives despite consequences of economic hardship.

    In conclusion, it was primarily situational factors earlier in life that explained economic hardship among young pensioners. In contrast, the findings indicate that it is the present and future – not the past – which for the most part shape young pensioners’ coping with economic hardship. This last finding is at odds with previous assumptions. Finally, as consumption becomes increasingly central in young pensioners’ everyday lives in general, the consequences of economic hardship become more striking within the age group.

    To get things right for children: Implementation of a public social living lab model for coordinated support for children in need2019In: Proceedings of the OpenLivingLab Days Conference 2019: Co-creating Innovation:  Scaling-up from Local to Global / [ed] Panagiotis Bamidis, Thessaloniki: European Network of Living Labs , 2019, p. 99-112Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a large need in Sweden and internationally for the development of knowledge-based approaches to improve children’s well-being, promote learning, school attachment and self-efficacy early in life. This includes both the articulation of comprehensive policy frameworks and the implementation of targeted interventions. One response to this is presented by the Scottish model Getting It Right for Every Child (GIRFEC). Central pillars are to improve children’s well- being and learning through early intervention, universal service provision, and multi-agency coordination. The model has gained substantial interest in Sweden, where the most challenging implementation is taking place in the county of Kronoberg, including eight municipalities and several health service organizations. This research paper is based on material from the ongoing evaluation that aimed to establish an interactive research in support of the implementation process. The paper describes the early process that followed the implementation decision and discuss how it might be understood as a public collaborative social living lab and what this demands from the researchers. Emphasis is put on the researcher’s role to balance between partaking in the innovative work and standing aside and giving critical reflections.
