SUMMER GREETING FROM OUR DIRECTOR
We will remember the spring 2020 for many years to come. The coronavirus has made a big impact on our lifes. As one of Sweden's largest research centers, it is important to reflect on events that has occurred in connection with the coronavirus. From a CTF perspective, it has been interesting to study how the service research principles for co-creation and resource integration has supported value creating processes between people and organizations. During the fall we will continue our work, keep an eye out for CTF in newsletters, emails, and on social media. Until then, I wish you a pleasant and relaxing summer.
