Visiting Scholar Jenny Janhager joined us in August. Jenny is an Assistant Professor at the Ddepartment at Integrated Product development at KTH (The Royal Institute of Technology) in Stockholm, Sweden.

She will be working with Li Liu until late December this year. Her research deals with methods for product development in early stages, e.g.: considering the user aspects in the product development process, handling the project portfolio (choice and priority) in small companies and product concept selections.

During her time here she will be primarily focusing on open innovation--similar to open source development in software applications. She is going to investigate how small companies cooperating in the innovation process in order to develop a total technical solution.
