Henrika Ruokonen

I have wide-ranging expertise in regional development. I am particularly familiar with network-like and knowledge-based development. With my knowledge-based approach I embrace topics related to municipal and regional management with all their tones. I have participated in e.g., strategy and anticipation work associated with different regions and networks, evaluating and researching processes of co-development and experimental activities and developing practices related to knowledge-based management. I am a regional scientist by education.
The future is built based on lessons of the past that are being interpreted based on the understanding of the present and our wishes.
