Acknowledgements

This book is the outcome of the research and development project Cross Motion, part-funded by the EU Interreg Baltic Sea Region programme. Without the EU’s support, this book would not exist and we are therefore grateful.

In practical terms, the help we received from many of the people working with us as part of the Cross Motion project was absolutely vital for making this research project happen – Sarah Ponnert representing Malmö Media Evolution City helped us to organise interviews in Sweden; Darius Sakalauskas from Nebula cluster in Vilnius facilitated the interviews with Lithuanian respondents; and Dmitrijs Scegolevs from the Tech Hub in Riga helped to organise all interviews in Latvia. Furthermore, Julia Grosch helped to coordinate the interviews in Hamburg; Kristen Langgaard from Filmby Aarhus helped with everything in Denmark; and Jari Handelberg from the Small Business Center of the South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences helped with interviews in Finland.

We would also like to thank Katrin Kuusik and Sander-Kalle Somma from Tallinn University, Šarūnas Ledas from Tag of Joy in Lithuania as well as Fedor Shantsyn in Narva for helping with the Narva AR project reported in Chapter 12.

Indrek Ibrus would like to highlight the support from Estonian Research Council (grant PUT1176) that enabled the work on all chapters authored or co-authored by him. Ulrike Rohn’s work on Chapter 13 was supported by the Estonian Research Council grant PUT1674 and Tallinn University Research Foundation (F/5216).

Finally, we want to thank Jen McCall and Rachel Ward, and the production team at Emerald for being so helpful and patient with us.
