Mia Toresson Runemark
Research communicator for the Interreg project Music Ecosystems Inner Scandinavia - MECO between 2019–2020.
Researched as an adjunct during the years 2015-2018 in the Interreg project Music Innovation Network Inner Scandinavia - MINS, which focused on the development of the music industry in Hedmark (Norway) and Värmland (Sweden). Through research, new training and close collaboration with the industry, the project worked to strengthen the region's music scene. We focused on popular music in relation to new media and how they are changing the music industry both in terms of business models, ways of working and its interaction with its audience. The project was a collaboration between Karlstad University, Hedmark University College and Studiefrämjandet. The project was an Interreg project for Inner Scandinavia and is financed by Interreg Sweden-Norway, the EU, Hedmark County Municipality, Arvika Municipality and Region Värmland.

Started the student blog MKV-student together with my colleague Håkan Liljegren in 2019. The blog aims to give students experience in their respective professional roles in parallel with their studies. As they can either try different professional roles or sharpen their skills within the professional role they already know they want in the future. The students work in a newsroom and write photos, videos. Right now own shorter articles. A registration form is in place for companies and organizations to fill in if they want to collaborate with our students and a showroom is in place fall of 2019. The students have also launched an Instagram account that promotes the articles, please follow!
