Procurement research: Current state and future challenges in the Nordic countries
Kapitel i bok, 2019

Purpose - The purpose of the study is to map previous and current construction procurement research to further develop the research in the Nordic counties.
Design/Methodology/Approach - Mapping of previous and current research based on search in national database. The analysis is based on research perspectives, empirical contexts and research methods.
Findings - That the blind spots are partly overlapping, but that there is potential for knowledge transfer in some areas. There is also the potential for a Nordic research program on one or several of the blind spots.
Research Limitations/Implications - The study is limited to PhD and licentiate-thesis reports in Norway and Sweden. Further research should include the other Nordic countries and a more extensive literature review including journal articles to broaden the scope. Findings have implications on collaborative Nordic research initiatives, knowledge transfer and in a longer perspective on the level of procurement knowledge in industry and society.
Practical Implications - Findings provide a base for future research collaborations, initiatives and applications. Originality/Value - Findings provide a comprehensive understanding of construction procurement research in the Nordic countries, starting with Norway and Sweden. This understanding is needed for developing research collaborations and applications.
