Communicating proximity? A case study on the dynamics of place for innovation

What happens to a place when we are there physically? Due to the fact that many work remotely as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, a unique opportunity arose to examine how important the place is for innovation, when we are suddenly out of place. Hagastaden, as an innovation cluster in life science, was a fitting case to take a closer look at for my study of how innovation is affected by the lack of geographical proximity.
