The Meri-Erko project started a lecture series for personnel at Aboa Mare and other project partners on 10 October 2018. The first lecture was about the digital disruption that affects all businesses and it was given by Director Thomas Westerholm from the Laboratory of Business Disruption Research at Turku School of Economics. Thomas presented the laboratory´s work and visions and discussed future technologies, competencies and organizations. The kind of changes digitalization will bring to education were also discussed. For example, the future accountants also need to study IT to keep up with the digital changes in their work. According to Thomas it would be very important for students from different fields to mix and have joint projects to learn from each other’s fields. This would benefit the students and companies by feeding future innovations. The lecture raised enthusiastic discussion among the audience.
