PhD student John-Erik Bergkvist at the Stockholm School of Economics will monitor Vision Zero Cancer as a researcher. His process study will lead to a more knowledge-based innovation work for cancer care in the future and provide insights about what makes actors get involved in new and broader ways of collaborating.
In his research, John-Erik Bergkvist follows Vision Zero Cancer’s activities in its different contexts and as a cross-sectoral ecosystem in general. He collects both qualitative and quantitative data and conducts experimental studies on the dynamics of collaboration. Through his studies, John-Erik Bergkvist hopes to generate knowledge about enabling and hindering factors when collaborating for innovation. The research will be reported in one to two scientific articles.
Innovation milieus of this kind are relatively unexplored, but the fact that the state is investing more in innovation is a new wave in Europe. The results will be just as important for cancer care as for the entire health care system’s work for innovation in the future. There is a curiosity in health care about new ways of working, and the ground for collaborations that can improve the power of innovation is strong. John-Erik Bergkvist is doing his PhD at the House of Innovation, Stockholm School of Economics.
