September 11-13, 2014. 24th Annual RESER Conference,

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)

Stay tuned for more information from the conference website.
