ServBis - Palveluosaamista pk-yrityksiin1.1.2011 0:00:0031.3.2012 0:00:00Kansallinen TKI4 EndedServBis – transferring service knowledge and competences to SMEs – aims to develop, test, and disseminate practical tools that ease small and medium sized firms (SMEs) to adopt a service business approach and mindset. ServBis is a 1,5-year (2011-12) service business project partly funded by Tekes, the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation. It’s a cooperative project of three universities of applied sciences: Laurea, Haaga-Helia and Metropolia. Further, this project engages 6 case companies from different industry sectors. The project focuses on SMEs which are currently aiming to transform to a service business or are developing their service concepts.The results of the ServBis project indicate that most firms have room for improvement in understanding the service dominant logic and service mindset. To reform firms towards service driven business approach and customer centricity faces challenges. The main obstacle seems to be the attitude of learning and building new competences. Lack of time and motivated resources pose further challenges. It was also evident that firms need practical guidance and easy-to-use tools in order to take the first steps towards service dominant logic. The ServBis project has enjoyed the multiparty collaboration and networked co-creation of service mindset and service design toolbox.Päivi Tossavainen; paivi.tossavainen@laurea.fi b) Kansallinen hanke 2 Osaamisintensiivinen palveluliiketoiminta - Knowledge-Intensive Business ServicesTekes122
Multiagency cooperation in cross-border operationswww.macico.com1.12.2011 0:00:0031.12.2014 0:00:00International RDI4 EndedMACICO will develop a concept for interworking of security forces in their daily activity. It deals with cooperation of security forces that do not use (in their day-to-day job) the same radio network, but in some missions could take benefit of a share of their respective infrastructure. Use cases such as pursuit of criminals across a border or close support of vehicles going through a border require security forces from both countries to communicate together and to continue to communicate with their control room. The members of an organisation must be allowed to use the foreign radio network to communicate. But the way to organize this foreign use of a radio network is to be defined and validated by security forces authorities (availability of terminal for foreign users, their configuration, group communication over the border, ciphering mechanisms, control on gateways, …) The work of the project will be carried out in cooperation with the public safety organisations that will be in charge to define under which conditions members from foreign organisations a priori working on heterogeneous networks will be able to cross the borders and how and to whom they shall communicate, without putting in danger the security features of the radio network. The requirements for these communications will be led on concrete use cases (France-Spain, France–Belgium, Switzerland-Germany, Switzerland-France and Finland-Estonia borders). Interworking at the border will then address Tetra-Tetrapol, Tetra-Tetra, and Tetrapol-Tetrapol interworking as well. From these requirements, the definition on the way to deploy terminals to foreign organisations, the way to organize and to deploy the solutions including gateways, will be declined in any of interworking cases. The test bed developed in the project will consist in proving the capability for the users to exploit the foreign radio network to communicate with all the members of the "border" communication (radio from both networks, control room from both networks). Of course the development of the necessary "gateways" that will allow the communication across the border will be part of the test. The project is innovative because it addresses not only the interoperability issue, but also the complete procedure that accepts foreign users on a security radio network (which is a priori forbidden for them) and look for a solution that keeps the intrinsic security mechanisms of such networks.

Know-how was disseminated and developed during four project workshops weeks. Each workshop week included an open seminar. Laurea brought the knowledge of Learning by Developing model as a good practice into the project. The project had a webpage (www.quickersteps.net) and a webjournal. In addition, best practices were also disseminated on the project's Facebook page (Quicker Steps) and on LinkedIN group (Best Practices to Support HE Students' Employment - Quicker Steps). As a part of the workshop weeks Quicker Steps project has organized four seminars. The final dissemination seminar was on 27.11.2012 in Jyväskylä, Finland. During and after the project the partner organizations will develop their procedures by applying the new knowledge. The first workshop week was organized in Laurea Leppävaara during 2.-6.5.2011. The two-day seminar gathered around 65 attendees. The theme was Collaboration between school and work - promoting students’ possibilities to move from school to work. Examples were presented from Laurea, Kymenlaakso University of Applied Sciences and JAMK University of Applied Sciences. International project partners presented their own practices. The second workshop was arranged at Luxembourg University in automn 2011. The workshop theme was Co-operation and partnership solutions with working life in finding ways to enhance employability of international graduates. In the third workshop in Linz, Austria in spring 2012, we got acquainted with apprenticeship models. The workshop in autumn 2012 was hosted by Coventry University, UK. The theme was paradimg change in pedagogy for enhancing student employability and one of the practices benchmarked was Activity-Led Learning. The dissemination seminar was arranged in Jyväskylä in the end of the November. The materials are available at the project's website. Some of the presenters as well other professionals have been invited to write to the project's webjournal http://ejournal.quickersteps.net/.

EXPAT- Innovative Services for Internationals - easier access to the CBSR1.1.2012 0:00:0030.6.2014 0:00:00International RDI4 EndedThe project seeks to facilitate the improvement of services and networks available to the international talents and their families before their departure from their home country, upon their arrival in the region and during their stay. This means, for example: Ensuring the visibility and accessibility of accurate information on the region and immigration procedures already in the country of origin. Better coordination among the public service providers for all the necessary registration, permits and practical information for newcomers. And physical and digital spaces for professional and social networking with both locals and other internationals.The added value of the project is in combining existing social and professional networks into one platform. Furthermore this platform will also act as an information channel for the public administration to efficiently communicate with international talents. 1.The social network platform will be piloted to a) enhance the interaction between internationals and locals. A place where they can meet and get to know each through hobbies and leisure activities. b) improve access to the practical knowledge on living in the CBSR e.g. taxation, civil rights and benefits 2.An information package on soft departure to the CBSR 3.Improved soft landing services through stakeholder cooperation, including potential creation of new services 4.Reports on the themes of social networks, soft departure and soft landing servicesProjektipäällikkö Conrad Lyaruu Laurea-ammattikorkeakoulu +358 9 88687616 conrad.lyaruu@laurea.fi a) Kansainvälinen hankeInterreg IVA (Central Baltic)142
Pumppuhttps://www.laurea.fi/hankkeet/pumppu1.5.2011 0:00:0031.5.2014 0:00:00Kansallinen TKI4 EndedPumppu project is a cross regional project aiming at developing citizen centric welfare services with multiple service providers. The subproject of the Laurea University of Applied Sciences focuses on welfare services arranged around the care pathway, or to stress the pervasiveness of prevention and health promotion in all areas of live, the wellbeing pathway. It is here suggested that a better motivation for healthier lifestyles and empowerment in daily life requires that the services of different services providers are seamlessly connected, with support and information available throughout the wellbeing path. Also the knowhow and attitudes of all the actors must be thought of.Hanna Tuohimaa, Project Researcher hanna.tuohimaa@laurea.fi e) Learning by Developing toteutuu; b) Kansallinen hankeEAKR 2007-2013149
