Welcome to USCO project
Digitalisation of business is a global megatrend that has a dramatic influence on value creation for services and processes across industries and public organizations.
The main focus of the USCO-project is to develop Finnish companies capabilities to utilize digitalisation. The project explores digital business development on an organizational level, and in implementing open service innovation. USCO-project relies on experimentation and taking action when developing digitalisation.
