TRANSLEARN Research Project
In April 2006, a new EU
funded research project was launched with the title "Transnational
learning through local experimenting" (Translearn). The
partners come from Denmark (Copenhagen Business School
-CBS), Finland (Helsinki School of Economics - HSE),
Norway (Norwegian School of Management (BI) and NIFUSTEP
research institute), Slovenia (Faculty of Economics,
University of Ljubljana, FELU) and Sweden (Luleå
University of Technology - LTU). HSE acts as the
coordinator of the project. The duration of the project
is three years.
The overall objective of the
Translearn project is to develop a road map for
transnational learning for how citizens in different
socio-economic models can make experimental use of
existing institutions, create new governance modes and
collaborative partnerships across sectors, levels and
divisions of interests. The focal actors to be studied
are subsidiaries of MNCs, entrepreneurs and citizens in
five national institutional contexts. Through a
comparative analysis of the Nordic case studies new
insights can be gained for transnational learning during
the ongoing process of globalization. The relevance of
the Nordic model and the potential for transnational
learning are tested by a comparison with cases from
Slovenia and its socio-economic model. Researchers from
parallel projects studying experimental use of
institutional resources in other European socio-economic
contexts are invited to a final conference, to be held
in March 2009.
