PhD Antti Hautamäki
The focus of this Sustainable Innovation site is twofold. The first topic is sustainable innovation and the issues of societal development. I have studied innovations form the beginning of 90’s, especially when I was a professor of service innovation at University of Jyväskylä in years 2009-2013. My book Sustainable Innovation, A New Age of Innovation and Finland’s Innovation Policy, 2010, is a summary of my basic ideas about the topic. Sustainable innovation means innovation that balances the long-term influences of the process and the output with the needs of people, societies, the economy and the environment.
The second topic is philosophy, especially epistemology and philosophical logic. I studied philosophy at the University of Helsinki, where I got my PhD in philosophy in 1987. My doctoral thesis was Points of View and their Logical Analysis, 1986. By a point of view I mean using an aspect of an object to represent it.
Both topics are still in intensive phase and I have published over two hundred articles and thirty books about them. In this blog I will rise interesting new issues crossing both topics.
I’m the founder of Consulting Sustainable Innovation (Konsultointi kestävä innovaatio), which provides expert services in research, development and innovation.
