2012-01-12: Starting from today, Johanna Wallin can call herself Licentiate in Engineering in Functional Product Development. Johanna is an industrial PhD student at Volvo Aero, Trollhättan, and operates also in PIEp (Product Innovation Engineering program. She has studied innovation capabilities and collaboration networks mainly at Volvo Aero, but also at other companies. The essay is titled: Increasing innovation capability of product-service systems through collaborative networks.
After Johanna’s presentation, Dr Magnus Kuschel, Managing Director, Commute Greener! Volvo IT Innovation Centre, led a highly professional discussion. Magnus had thoroughly approached Johanna’s work and asked questions to Johanna that made her think and really reflect on her research approach, the perspective and the contribution. The discussion shed light on research efforts on a very clever and interesting way, so not only Johanna was nudged to reflect, but also the audience was provided an occasion to learn.
