The CTO (Chief Technology Officer) Forum at Aalto Design Factory was a memorable collection of interesting presentations, enthusiastic discussions, and the unforgettable Award gala where Kenneth Ekman (CrisolteQ Ltd) received the well-deserved CTO of the Year 2013 award.
The CTO Forum was given significant challenges in the Aalto Design Factory, and now the CTO community is being called to answer them.
Mikko Kosonen of Sitra presented a large upcoming initiative in industrial symbiosis. Finnish CTOs from all industries are invited to join!
Moreover, Pekka Ala-Pietilä challenged Finnish CTOs to participate in the ICT 2015 advisory board. The CTO task force will counsel the Finnish government in 1) designing swiftly joint national service infrastructure 2) creating relevant and deep knowledge in the ICT 2015 - research, development and innovation program 3) significant funding program to support the financing of seed and growth phase companies.
Contact Laura Kauhanen of Spinverse to express interest in Sitra's Industrial Symbiosis initiative or to volunteer as an expert to the CTO task force in one of the fields of ICT 2015.
