Date & Time: March 18, 2014 12:00-16:00
Place: Aalto School of Business, Runeberginkatu 14-16, 4th floor, room A-401.
The seminar focuses on how the multidisciplinary research may contribute to achieving high-quality business science research results. We discuss the challenges and opportunities of multidisciplinary research and methodologies within the Aalto University School of Business, with other Schools of Aalto University – and with firms and other players around us. We believe that our School has a lot to offer – through fundamental, and applied multidisciplinary research - to the tackling of economic, social and industrial challenges of Finland, Europe and the world. Achieving industrial excellence and leadership is one such a challenge: the creation and renewal of industries, markets, businesses, enterprising and strong and competitive innovation ecosystems is in the center of attention. The societal role of management, organization, service, strategy, economic and other studies of our School is crucial in explaining and understanding of the ongoing social and economic transformations.
We also assume that our mutual efforts on multidisciplinary research benefits shared understanding and development of multidisciplinary research methodologies. For instance, we may learn to apply methodologies of observation, participation, experimentation and piloting in real-life contexts for new systemic designs and innovations in service, business and wider industrial domains.
The seminar provides a forum to discuss different research approaches and methodologies within Aalto School of Business. We may identify research topics that are cross-cutting and require the application of such methodologies. The seminar will also discuss the opportunities for multidisciplinary research at the European level in Horizon 2020.
The seminar is organized by CKIR in collaboration with Business School departments

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland will host the annual RESER conference of 2014 in Helsinki. RESER conference is a multidisciplinary forum, where researchers in economics, geography, sociology, management, marketing and many other disciplines meet to share the latest advances in research on services. The doctoral colloquium related to the conference will be hosted by Department of Industrial Engineering and Management of Aalto University.
The conference main theme, "Services and New Societal Challenges: Innovation for Sustainable Growth and Welfare", highlights that services are embedded in the development of the present society. Service sectors and activities form an increasing share of today’s economies, and the success of new technologies creates and needs services. Solutions to the biggest societal challenges require systemic innovations, but also these innovations often manifest themselves as new or improved services.
The six main themes for the conference will be:
1. Social innovations and system innovations in services
2. Tackling the ‘unknown’: towards more agile innovation processes in services
3. Co-creation of value as the basis for business models
4. New service opportunities provided by technological development
5. Services internationalization and ‘glocalization’: the new geography of services
6. Services and innovation in developing economies (track supported by REDLAS)
