The call for research proposals from national research programme on applied welfare welcomes proposals within eight priority areas. The call offers five different types of grants. In total, around SEK 100 million is reserved for the period 2019–2024. You can also check my previous post for an open call for research grants for individuals.
Priority Research Topics The national research programme on applied welfare aims to promote client and practice-oriented research in the field of applied social services. The initiative aims at strengthening collaborations between research and practice and increasing the participation of users and those close to users. The research should be planned in collaboration with relevant target groups, such as concerned professions and users.
As postdoctoral research fellow, I have my on-going research project proposal and I am still on developing stage. There are things to reconsider and revising. The research project has been posted for peer review purposes. It is not a final layout but the whole idea is already there. I am open for suggestion and considering revising it. Just posting the abstract.

Specifically, this study sought to find answer to the following: Level of effectiveness, Significant relationship between the level of effectiveness of social media marketing as a promotional tool and their profile variables, Program can be proposed to address the problems encountered.
Social media itself is a catch-all term for sites that may provide radically different social actions. For instance, Twitter is a social site designed to let people share short messages or “updates” with others. Facebook, in contrast is a full-blown social networking site that allows for sharing updates, photos, joining events and a variety of other activities. Social media has become a platform that is easily accessible to anyone with internet access. Increased communication for organizations fosters brand awareness and often, improved customer service. Additionally, social media serves as a relatively inexpensive platform for organizations to implement marketing campaigns.
Social media often feeds into the discovery of new content such as news stories, and “discovery” is a search activity. Many people also perform searches at social media sites to find social media content. Social connections may also impact the relevancy of some search results, either within a social media network or at a ‘mainstream’ search engine. Perhaps the greatest value of social media marketing is the ability to foster and engage with a community of other people. That engagement is at the heart of social media.
The lack of market value, implementation and marketing that do not function perfectly are normally easy reason to support if why a particular product or new idea can fail on the market. There is always more than one side to a story, so to speak. Most case study focuses on marketing strategy and market value without exploring further the underlying factors that cause product development to fail, such as the lack of support from the local government unit, government policy and the world leading company’s strategic act to disrupt small budding companies. That also contributes to the niche development of establishing a new idea, a reason to not succeed. In essence, many companies fail not simply because it’s so hard to succeed but because it is being restricted and disrupted.
This study explores how grassroots entrepreneur’s failure to continue niche development despite the promising idea that may help enhanced productivity and sustainability. Grassroots entrepreneurs, who basically have none or very little of essential resources; however they managed to find ways to start develop products that are locally sourced.

The Negative Impact of Social Media on Environmental Preservation, Activities of Tourism Marketing
This is my Google Local Guide review way back in 2016 during my visiting research fellowship. Bangkok is one of my home cities and favorite place for shopping. Siam Square, MBK and Siam Discovery were the usual places I’d normally go. Just so many things to see around this area aside from clothing shops and restaurants. You can also find some collector’s item shops. Siam Discovery has a great selection of huge posh shopping centers with chick international and Asian fashion design, but once you pop out on the street and markets you will find all kinds of cool and cheap stuff.
Siam Discovery is also smaller than it’s big brothers Paragon and Central World, but bigger and much brighter and easier to orientate yourself in than Siam Center. I really like the layout of this shopping center, it is easy to find your way around. This center also has some of my favorite brands, so I love it! .
This center has shops as Marc by Marc Jacobs, Diesel, French Connection, Miss Sixty (these are all on the first floor), DKNY, Kenneth Cole, Fred Perry, Calvin Klein, Replay (these are all on 2nd floor), Smart Travel/ North Face (3rd floor). Here is my Google Local Guide Page
