  • With the help of the Lbd and LivingLab models weat Laurea want to offer their best RDI co-operation for international partners and consequently access to one of the world’s most competitive and advanced metropolitan areas. - At Laurea, we search for RDI co-operation with universities, LivingLabs and companies that have a similar role in other leading European regions. Together with our international partners, we aspire to construct better RDI results and improve their usage in companies and within society. Through joint international RDI projects we want to provide domestic and international students with an interesting and competitive learning environment to boost their professional and academic careers
  • As a director at Laurea University of Applied Sciences, Tuija Hirvikoski is responsible for the development of Laurea focus areas (Service Business and Nursing Expertise and Coping at Home) and the internationalization of its RDI and LivingLab operations. Since the early 1990s, she has had a vital contribution in enriching the Finnish higher education sector and its impact on joint value co-creation in Helsinki metropolitan area. Before her current position she was for almost twenty years first the president of Kerava Business Collage and then the Vice-President of Laurea. During that time Laurea had ‎a continuous nine-year tenure as a Centre of Excellence as appointed by the National Evaluation Council due to its operative model (Learning by Developing, LbD) that integrates RDI with learning and regional development. The LbD model in conjunction with the LivingLab approach is based on innovation co-creation among various stakeholders within the Helsinki Metropolitan area and on an international level. It provides Laurea graduates with great employment and start-up opportunities. Moreover, due to this successful strategic choice, Laurea has a central role in orchestrating national and international RDI operations aiming at joint value creation in the Metropolitan area. Hirvikoski has promoted national and cross-border co-operation related to LivingLabs, user-centered research and knowledge-intensive innovation ecosystems as an expert or/and council/steering group member of the European Network of Living Labs, the Committee of the Regions (EU), Regional Coordination Committee of Uusimaa Regional Council, Finnish technology centres, Sendai-Finland Wellbeing Centre, Helsinki Information Technology Association, Pioneering Region for Europe2020 and the Talent Cultivation Program for Smart Living Industry in Taiwan. As a sought-after speaker and advisor, she has provided various audiences with inspirational examples and research results concerning how to combine LivingLabs, innovation and education. Recently, she has made conference appearances, for instance, at the World Bank and OECD.Hirvikoski has received a PhD in Industrial Management (Innovation and Innovation Ecosystems), MSc in Education and MSc in Administration.
