My work as Professor of Practice at Lappeenranta University of Technology continues. The university is undergoing great change, including rebuilding the main building, but more importantly organization change. Industrial economics and business studies were unified in a single school, where also I am based. More organization change is on its way.

Two years’s work together with Inkeri Hirvensalo on the book on Eastern trade is done.

More plans are ripening. Just wait and see!
