Bridging partners

Virke logo

Virke believes that there is a huge potential in developing services in a better and more systematic approach and that a programmed collaboration with large networks of different partners will enhance the possibilities of success. The design of the CSI focusing on extensive partnership through best practice, publishing of papers and deliverables of PhD’s are all metrics that we can use in our work on innovation in services. As a bridging partner we can also guide our members running innovation projects to work with CSI and diffuse knowledge generated at the CSI to our member companies. Through this, we believe that our member companies will get a better basement for successful service innovation, and that this will improve their value creation.
