The last call for registrations on the final EPISIS conference: “Positive Impacts of Service Innovation – from Intangible Investments to Emerging Industries and Ecosystems”.

The EPISIS conference will take place in Helsinki on 4th – 5th of June 2012. The conference will be held at Finland Hall, a unique venue by the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto.

The overall purpose of the conference is to show-case the wide spectrum of forerunner policies and activities in Europe and abroad to make the most use of the service innovation potential and speed up the uptake of service innovations in the market.

The key question will be how to get tangible results from intangible service innovation?

The main target audience are high-level policy-makers from European regions, Member States and
Commission as well as other interested actors and parties in the service innovation field.

The EPISIS conference is part of the programme of both the Danish EU Presidency and the World Design Capital year designated to Helsinki in 2012. The World Design Capital is an initiative of the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design - an international non-governmental organisation that aims to promote innovative design.
