While I have been working in Finpro, I had a focus on the following project: Inventing, selling and implementation of the project Cleantech Finland for Russia: 2009-2011 in cooperation with Ministry of Environment of Finland. The main targets of the project were to open up and to catalyze new business opportunities for the Finnish companies in cleantech sector in Russia; to intensify the synergies with the activities of Finnish companies and national intermediaries and to utilize its publicity and brand image of Cleantech Finland®. Also the project supported the targets of Ministry of Environment of Finland in Russia, as one priority area of the Ministry is to promote the topics of water, energy saving, energy efficiency and renewables in Russia. Altogether 13 Finnish companies from water, energy efficiency and renewables sector joined the project. The project has been implemented by Finpro ry.
