Mr. Tomi Särkioja

I have recently been approved for Doctoral decree program at University of Tampere with a research proposal to study recent transformation of selected economic cluster in Vietnam. I am currently working at the Asian Development Bank as a private sector development specialist, and my role is to establish new co-operation in the field of innovation and technology co-operation in Vietnam. Previously, I worked with the Foreign Service at the Embassy of Finland in Hanoi in 2013-2015 and earlier in Tanzania. The design and steering of international innovation programs required co-operation with, for example, the World Bank, Business Finland and other Finnish and international innovation experts. Also, my previous studies in administrative sciences at the University of Helsinki, studies in development economics at the University of Bologna, as well as courses, seminars and other work-related research co-operation on political economy and industrial clusters, have contributed in the design of the research topic and methodological choices.
