Integrating business and information system know-how is essential
Päivi Tossavainen, M.Sc. (Econ), will defend her PhD dissertation at the Helsinki School of Economics (HSE) on Thursday, June 16th 2005. The dissertation is entitled "Transformation of organizational structures in a multinational enterprise. The case of enterprise resource planning utilization" and is in the field of International Business. The public defense will start at 12:00 in the auditorium of the main building (address Runeberginkatu 12-14). The opponent is Professor Marjatta Maula (Tampere University of Technology) and the custos is Professor Hannu Seristö (HSE).
In her PhD research, Päivi Tossavainen examines what kind of challenges a multinational enterprise (MNE) faces when it constitutes a large number of business entities and actors, is geographically dispersed, and when both information systems and business activities require constant development. The study focuses on enterprise resource planning systems (ERP) that have become popular for integrating operational data and for supporting operations and logistic business processes globally.

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.
According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

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...
