NOMAD-project takes place under Finland Distinguished Professor
Programme - FiDiPro. This programme enables distinguished researchers,
both international and expatriates to work and team up with the 'best
of the best' in Finnish academic research.
New research project - User-driven Service Innovation and Co-creation
University of Vaasa and the staff of SC-Research have accumulated
internationally recognised knowledge base in the focused topic areas:
user-driven service innovation and intangibles management. The
objective is to contribute to the Finnish knowledge base, and bring it
up to internationally excelling level on the topic of user driven
service innovation and intangibles management.
The focus of the research project is on user-driven service innovation
process and co-creation management. Creation, commercialization and
capitalization of services intangible value are central themes
throughout the project. Nomad-project will employ in Finland two
top-level international researchers Professor Martin Meyer from the
University of Sussex and Stephen Flowers MSc. from the University of
Brighton. Both of them are well connected with SPRU, the Brighton based
‘cradle’ of Innovation Research. Both of the invited researchers have a
solid track record in the leading edge international research on new
types of innovation processes and user-driven service innovation. Their
combined skills have great potential since they can bring new
perspectives to service innovation research and take it closer to the
leading edge mainline innovation debate.
The aim is to bring new insights and novel perspectives to the service
innovation debate. Nomad-project advances new ways of thinking that can
bring renewed vigour to the field of service innovation research.
Through its interactive approach and knowledge transfer activities the
project is feeding the latest knowledge for the benefit of businesses
and their innovation management. Finally, the proposed research team
has excellent capacity to move forward the service innovation policy
