Mr. Mika KautonenMK-2012-b.jpg

Education: Ph.D. (Regional Studies, UTA 2006) 

Position: University Researcher, Head of the Innovation Studies Group in TaSTI

Adjunct Professor, University of Turku, Turku School of Economics


Current research projects:

Research programme 'Evolving Innovation Environments' (coordinated by Mika Kautonen and Mika Raunio); see the projects:

http://www.uta.fi/yky/en/research/tasti/research/Research_teams/evien/projects.html

Research interests: Innovation environments and their spatial dynamics; firms’ innovation processes and related interactions; new forms of innovation and innovation platforms; inclusiveness of innovation; knowledge-intensive services; and related innovation policies.

Mika Kautonen’s current research activities are particularly related to the Unit's new research program on Evolving innovation systems (2010-2018). Within this program, he studies the changes occurring in modes and organization of innovation activities (e.g. service and open innovations, inclusive innovation, innovation communities) which often combine both close geographical proximity and access to worldwide sources of ideas and competences. His long-term interests are related to, on the one hand, those effects that different innovation systems and their institutions have on innovation activities, and, on the other hand, those major effects innovation activities have on innovation systems (regional, national etc.) and on societies at large.
