23 Jan 2013

23.1.2013 Aalto Design Factory

The latest CTO 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 the CTO community was being called to answer them.

Mikko Kosonen of Sitra presented a large upcoming initiative in industrial symbiosis. Finnish CTOs from all industries were invited to join! Moreover, Pekka Ala-Pietilä challenged Finnish CTOs to participate in the ICT 2015 advisory board.

The themes that were addressed in the workshops are:

  • How does CTO sell a project to the CEO?
  • How should ICT renew Finnish industries?
  • How to best utilize open innovation platforms?
  • How to improve R&D collaboration with SMEs?
  • How to get access to best emerging technologies using international collaboration and EU funding?
  • Predicting R&D: where to go next?
