We are delighted to announce the appointment of our dear colleague Aki Harima as Associate Professor at TalTech - Tallinn University of Technology. In her new role, Aki will take over the leadership of the Entrepreneurship Research Group in the Estonian capital from February 1, 2024.

Over the past eleven years, Aki has played a key role in shaping LEMEX in teaching and research - be it in her seminars, conference organization and participation or her excellent research work. A particular highlight of her work was the excursion to Namibia with a group of students to research startup support programs on site. Aki was awarded the Berninghausen Prize for this innovative teaching format. This also helped to deepen relations between Bremen and Windhoek, which also attracted regional attention.
Aki's remarkable achievements also include various successful projects. For example, she played a key role in researching the development of a virtual incubator for refugees, developed the MDE initiative into an established international conference for migration and diaspora entrepreneurship and made internationally recognized contributions to entrepreneurial ecosystem research during her research stay in Santiago de Chile. Aki now enjoys a high reputation in entrepreneurship research and is very well networked.
Aki has also greatly enriched the LEMEX team outside of his core professional activities. Always supportive with an open ear, innovative ideas, good humor and great passion, Aki is a role model among colleagues and a great source of inspiration.   

Dear Aki, we would like to thank you for your remarkable achievements, your great support and your sincere friendship and wish you all the best and much success in your new role!

Your LEMEX team
