Call for bioeconomy experts (Finland): Masters thesis project on bio-sector hybrid organisations

Have you worked in multi-organisational bioeconomy development projects? Are you involved in local bio-hubs? Or do you have experience on joint innovation, alliances or ecosystems in bio-sector?

I am currently working on my Masters Thesis project that focuses on goal-setting and performance management in bio-sector hybrid organisations in Finland. In my study I am trying to figure out how organisations from different sectors currently set goals in collaborative settings, how their own organisational logic influences goal-setting and performance managements, what kind of challenges there are, and how organisations deal with the inherent complexity of multiorganisational, cross-sectoral “hybrid organisations”.

I am conducting my study by using two-phased modified Delhi-method expert interviews, and looking for experts that would be willing to spare 30-50 mins of their time for a personal interview in phase 1, and provide their comments on synthetized interview findings in phase 2.

If you think you could contribute to this research, please contact me and let´s book and interview time! You can send me an email if you have any further questions:

Dear @RDI2CluB, here is a great opportunity to share your knowledge!

RDI2CluB will be interviewed but perhaps you have other projects going on ?

Please share this message and tag relevant people here.

Dear @elina_siivari, are you looking for only Finnish contributors, or from several countries? If foreigners are relevant, perhaps @ola could be a relevant interviewee?

@suvi does RCCF have anyone that could participate ? Or @tiina does Saarijärvi city have anyone suitable or perhaps BioPaavo project ?

Yes, of course! I will send email to @elina_siivari! And perhaps Elina should contact Sari Åkerlund from Plänet B project? She could be right kind of person to be interviewed in this thesis project?

Warm thanks for all of you for helping me in my research. Great tips! At this time I am narrowing my focus down to Finnish bio-sector, and primarily looking for Finnish candidates for my interviews. @ola already kindly agreed to give me bakcground interview, share his experiences and give some guidance. For other non-Finnish experts in this area, I´d be very happy to hear your thought and discuss with you if you have time for me.

I am continuing this research next fall based on my findings and observations during this project as a project researches in Tampere University. Therefore I am also very interested in cases and experiences beyond the scope of this current study. I am trying to identify knowledge gaps and interesting cases that could benefit the sector as a whole. If something comes in mind, please just send me an email.
