On October 29th MSc. (Inf. Sys.) Teemu Santonen defended the doctoral thesis "Four Essays Studying the Effects of Customization and Market Environment on the Business Success of Online Newspapers in Finland" at the Helsinki School of Economics. The opponent was Professor, Dr. Arjen Wassenaar (University of Twente, Netherlands) and the custos Professor Markku Sääksjärvi (Helsinki School of Economics, Finland).
In his doctoral thesis, Santonen is especially interested in analyzing whether, as has been suggested, the better business success of online newspapers is achieved by applying customization strategy rather than by producing pure standardized services. In addition, Santonen also tests how the different factors besides customization, such as the market environment, revenue logic, the importance of business objectives, and experience in online publishing, were directly or indirectly related to the business success of online newspapers. The empirical data of Santonens thesis were based on 42 online newspapers operating in the Finnish online newspaper market. Furthermore, the survey data were enhanced with three case studies.
According to the findings of Santonens thesis, for the time being the business success of online newspaper in Finland could be explained by means of the geographical focus of the parent print newspaper, perceived demand and market turbulence, and the amount of experience in online publishing.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
