New Strategic Knowledge Platform at CIRCLE: An experimentally organised economy

The New Strategic Knowledge Platform on the Experimentally Organised Economy, that was generously granted by VINNOVA, just had its first quarter. In this first step, CIRCLE received a three-year grant to build up the Platform and its linked research programme. Several external collaborators are expected to join the platform in 2019. This is the third of CIRCLE’s new strategic knowledge platforms, and of great importance for the future research of our centre.

This is what we are working on:

The Knowledge Platform on an Experimentally Organised Economy (EOE) will bring together research environments and policy makers in the field of entrepreneurial experimentation.  The purpose is to increase our understanding of to what extent and in what ways public and private action can contribute to a more effective and efficient entrepreneurial experimentation, and thereby a better performing experimentally organized economy.


  1. Become a hub for knowledge exchange between research and policy
  2. Foster policy understanding of EOE
  3. Create a research infrastructure

Effects and results
The platform will focus on three analytical levels:

  • how entrepreneurial experimentation contributes to long-term renewal in different kinds of systems, as well as on how this can be more effective. (the Experimental society).
  • the creation, selection and scaling-up processes of experimental ventures and organizations, as well as on how this can be more effective (the Experimental organizations).
  • the link between entrepreneurial experimentation and skills and labour mobility, as well as on how this can be more effective (the Experimental individual).

Planned implementation 

  • Establish a national and international network of excellence of scholars and policymakers in the field of experimentally organised economy
  • Find synergies in sharing data (eg. Swedish national data set, case based empirical data and joint data on Swedish and international policy initiatives related to EOE)
  • Design and implement a research programme based on original research projects in the field of entrepreneurial experimentation

More interesting things to come!
