That was the topic for a recent conference that concluded the project called “Place-based digital experiences (PDU)”. Three places – the Glaskogen nature reserve, the Kristinehamn archipelago, and the town of Sunne, with a focus on culture and narrative – were studied in depth by Karlstad University researchers. The tourism industry can be challenging. Most tourist destination companies are small with limited resources.

Many people start a new year by making new year’s resolutions, often to make a change and start a healthier life. At the same time, research shows that only a few of us are able to keep our new resolutions. Perhaps the best way is to go all in, and create a new habit that is done every day - a run streak. A run streak means running at least 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) or a minimum of 20 minutes every day for a set period of time, without fail, and has become a popular movement all over the world.

... and professor at the University of Borås. You are studying customers and employees in an increasingly digitalized society. Why is this interesting? "In recent years, there has been a great deal of focus on the opportunities that new digital solutions provide customers and companies.
