Presently Anne investigates the early phases of innovation work, how ideas are generated, assessed and managed by the organisation. Anne works as course assistant in different courses in the MEI programme. Anne is also Master's thesis coordinator at the division of Innovation and R&D Management. Below Anne describes her tasks as master's thesis coordinator:My work as a Master's thesis coordinator is to manage MEI student's queries about doing a degree project at "the division of Innovation and R&D Management. The purpose is to facilitate the contact between students and tutors, i.e. I don't choose a tutor for the students. Instead I recommend suitable tutors. You are welcome to contact me for any questions about how to find a good tutor. The researchers at the division get many requests for tutoring degree projects, but unfortunately it's not always possible to say yes. Time and interest are important factors."Here are some useful tips that may increase your chances of finding a suitable tutor for your project: -- Try to find a degree project that has interests in common with the research at the division. -- Feel free to contact people early to get a chance to discuss your ideas for the degree project. -- It's always easier to make a decision on an elaborated proposal, therefore consider what you would like to write about and write down your thoughts in a memo. Suggestions on what to include in the memo are background, purpose, project plan, time plan and how you think you can contribute academically through your degree project. -- If you want to write about a subject outside the direct framework for the research at our division, you may try to find a tutor from another division within the Department of Technology Management and Economics.
