Challenges for succession in family farms and small family firms in rural areas

About the project

In rural areas with nature-based resources and few other work opportunities successful successions can be seen as sustainable value creation and industry policy. The project will examine the dynamics and challenges for family farm and family firm succession. The study will provide novel insights into the characteristics, and processes of succession in farms and small family firms. We use an interdisciplinary approach where we combine case studies in different regions and a national survey. Our approach emphasises the importance of a holistic perspective in order to understand the interaction of factors related to the firm/farm, family/household/gender, and locality/place in succession processes.
