We will inform about the new date later.


Welcome to the final seminar of MILL project!

The joint project of Industrial Engineering research unit of University of Oulu and Oulu chamber of commerce, “Managing multinational investment projects”, in short MILL, has developed novel collaborative practices and operation models for planning and implementing big industrial investment projects since 2018.

We are organizing the final seminar of the project on Wednesday 18th March at 12-16.30 in Saalastinsali, University of Oulu (Pentti Kaiteran katu 1).  

The program will consist of both researchers’ and practitioners’ views by participating organizations on developing and implementing collaborative practices in investment projects.

The speakers include e.g.  prof. emeritus Derek Walker from Australia, and the chairman of the MILL steering group, director Jouni Honkala from Afry Oyj. The first part of the seminar program will be in English and the second part in Finnish.

Please register here by Friday 13th March.

You are warmly welcome to listen to MILL project participants’ experiences and other specialist speeches on this important and current topic! You can freely distribute the invitation further in your networks.

 Please note, that parking spaces are very limited in the Linnanmaa campus area. We recommend to use public transportation when possible. There are chargeable parking spaces available through eParking, EasyPark or ParkMan parking fee systems.
