Professor Miia Martinsuo from the Unit of Industrial Engineering and Management has been appointed a EURAM Fellow. Professor Martinsuo was honoured for her contribution to EURAM, an association that promotes the academic discipline of management.

The European Academy of Management (EURAM) is the leading organisation for management research in Europe. The award is granted to researchers who have achieved an outstanding reputation in the academic community and distinguished themselves in EURAM’s activities. A EURAM Fellow, who is nominated on the recommendation of the organisation’s activists, can continue to play a leading role in the field in the future. 

Professor Martinsuo has participated in EURAM’s activities for fifteen years. Most recently, she has served as Vice President of the organisation’s Executive Committee from 2018 to 2021. She was also the national representative of Finland in the EURAM Executive Board from 2015 to 2021.  

Martinsuo works at the Unit of Industrial Engineering and Management at Tampere University’s Faculty of Management and Business. Her professorship focuses on industrial management, especially project-based organising, and industrial service business. Martinsuo’s research profile covers the management of project portfolios and large development programmes, managing the front end and decision making in new projects as well as process innovations and servitisation in industrial enterprises. With a background in the metals and electronics industries, Martinsuo has gained experience in international companies and public organisations where she has been involved in strategy and business processes and organisational development. 

Professor Martinsuo is Professional Development Support Officer in EURAM’s Project Organising strategic interest group, and in the early 2010s, she was a member and chair of the strategic interest group’s board. Martinsuo is an active conference participant as an organiser, session chair, peer reviewer and discussant. 

Every year, EURAM brings together management researchers from more than 60 countries around the world. The association has over 1,000 members. For the past two years, EURAM has organised its meetings mainly virtually. The organisation had a special virtual conference development task force, in which Martinsuo also participated. 

At Tampere University, Professor Martinsuo leads the Center for Research on Project and Service Business (CROPS) and the Doctoral Programme in Business and Technology Management. Martinsuo researches and teaches extensively on project and service business topics. Her research interests include, among other things, innovation management, organisation theory, management, and strategic change in industrial organisations.
