ASF Business Advisory Board established (January 20, 2012)
Aalto Service Factory tightens the contacts with business and economy by having established a Business Advisory Board. The Business Advisory Board is a resourceful and proactive body for promoting business collaboration with and for the Aalto Service Factory community. Its purpose is to discuss the research and education in Aalto University in the field of service, to bring in new initiatives and proposals, and to give insight on several issues, including:
- Where the future research in the field of service should be directed from a practitioner’s point of view?
- How to present the research results in a way that really interests the practitioners?
- What is the value of the research for practitioners? How to exploit the research results in practice?
- What kind of cooperation and collaboration is needed?
The brand-new Board has currently six members. Its chairman, Jyrki Koskinen, represents IBM and is responsible for IBM’s academic contacts in general. Other members are Ms. Jaana Auramo from Tekes, Ms. Maija Berndtson from the City of Helsinki, Ms. Pia Erkinheimo from Nokia, Mr. Bo Harald from Tieto, and Mr. Iiro Salkari from VTT.
