More about this expert:

Passion Sustainable urban planning, greener cities, energy-efficient buildings, water protection, cleantech business concepts. How did I become me? I am very familiar with the Finnish Innovation system, and I have been working with all the partners in the innovation system on different topics and fields. In the early 2000 I acted as a Director for Ramboll Finnconsult (Ramboll Finland) in their international project business for the promotion of sustainable water supply, harmonization of environmental law and drafting of new environmental law, training of environmental administration to the new duties and tasks. From the beginning of 2007 I had a role of new energy and climate business developer at the Finnish Consulting Group (FCG). By that time I also acted as a coordinator for one of the Finnish Environment and Energy Cluster's (i.e. CLEEN Ltd's) programme, called Distributed Energy Systems. I was really lucky to collaborate with most of the cleantech companies in Finland in this field. Thereafter, I have really put the whole of my heart on this new and environmentally sound technology and cleantech business development at the Baltic Sea Action Group and lately as a R&D Director for one cleantech start-up company in bioenergy. The problems I solve I am enthusiastic to elaborate new business concepts for sustainable urban development.
