The retail sector is facing fundamental change and disruption with the emergence of e-commerce, consumer access to information and comparable offers in an increasingly digitalised and global marketplace. The dynamic and flexible omni-channel solutions – physical, online or blended – enables the seamless consumer experience in exploration, in choice of products, payment and delivery.

Smart digital retail solutions also enable collection and analysis of consumer trends and insights for logistics, retail operations and customer relations management. In this Summer School, we will address the service innovations inspired by technologies like customer profiling, indoor navigation and large screen interfaces or augmented reality.

The Summer School will take place in Helsinki Co-Location Centre at the Open Innovation House in Espoo, Finland.
