The following event will, among other things, reflect knowledge and findings from an Invio project called 'Camønoen'.
This seminar presents the latest research outputs and a series of innovations developed in Work package 2 of the project “InnoCoast - Innovation in Coastal Tourism: Co-creating Competitive Experiences” funded by Innovation Fund Denmark. These papers and presentations combine an exploration of innovative research methods, multimedia approaches to knowledge production and reflections on how to bridge theory and practice in tourism. The seminar is organized by the Center for Leisure and Culture Services (CLCS), Department of International Economics and Management, CBS and the Department of People and Technology, Roskilde University.

Mads Bødker is Associate Professor at the department of digitalization at Copenhagen Business School, Denmark. With a background in media studies and Human-Computer Interaction, his current research lies at the intersection of ethnography, design, and critical tourism research. His research has included a focus on affect and “experiential” aspects of tourism, which increasingly requires researchers and planners to reflect on how mobile and ‘embodied’ (e.g. wearable devices) digital technologies may enrich as well as challenge experiences in tourism. Taking place in a multidisciplinary field, his research spans interaction design, human geography, and ethnographic field studies of tourist as they go about “making place”. In addition, he has been co-developer of mobile apps for ‘mobilizing’ research practices and data collection in tourism and other domains. Mads is also a recording musician and works with sound design and electro-acoustic improvisation in a number of different contexts.
Jørgen Ole Bærenholdt is Professor of Human Geography, Department of People and Technology, Roskilde University. He is currently doing research on tourist place design and social mobilisation for tourism in peripheries of Denmark. He has also been associated with the University of Tromsø doing research in the North Atlantic region including the UNESCO MOST Circumpolar Coping Processes Project. Research interests are in tourism, cultural heritage, spatial designs, design processes, mobility, regional development and the circular economy. Books in English include The Reflexive North (edited with Aarsæther 2001), Performing Tourist Places (with Haldrup, Larsen and Urry, 2004), Space Odysseys (edited with K. Simonsen 2004),Coping with Distances (habil. dissertation 2007), Mobility and Place (edited with Granås 2008) and Design Research (edited with J. Simonsen, Büscher and Scheuer 2010).
Signe Dreyer Elkjær, is a undergraduate student at the BSc in Business Administration and Service Management, Copenhagen Business School. Through her studies she has gained an understanding of how service companies can create value for their customers. Together with strong analytical skills, this program provides an overall understanding of how to market, sell and organize a service through courses like strategy, marketing, organisational behaviour, economics, tourism, among others. This summer, Signe will graduate and continue on to the master programme “Brand and Communications Management” to specialise further within marketing. In connection with the Innocoast project, Signe has worked with the operationalization of an Instagram/social media strategy for the upcoming Witches Museum located in Ribe. Her presentation at the Innocoast seminar will therefore focus on how museums can create value through engagement on social media.
