“I had been wanting to work with Finnish know-how and new technologies that create growth opportunities for businesses for a while. In this position, I am able to contribute to these future success stories,” Koistila said. “I believe that technological solutions are the key to solving global challenges. However, science, research and technology need to satisfy customers’ needs. It is therefore crucial that we are able to tie VTT’s cutting-edge know-how in with the contemporary challenges and growth opportunities of businesses in Finland.
