The first major event of FSA after the constitutive meeting was the Northern Service Day in Oulu, on January 24, 2013. The event was attended by 130 people from 60 different organizations. The event was organized by the City of Oulu, Business Oulu, OULLabs, University of Oulu, University of Lapland, Oulu University of Applied Sciences, VTT, and Tekes. The program included a panel discussion and eight different clinic sessions, including ”brand doctors” and ”prototyping clinic”. Both the panel discussion and the clinic sessions gained a lot of positive feedback among the participants and the seminar attendees agreed that the Northern Service Day acted as a successful first step towards long-term collaboration between the participating organizations.
