Finnish CTOs: “Boldness in introducing new technology!”

26 Sep 2012

CTO Forum, organized on the 19th of September by Spinverse and Technology Academy Finland, gathered Finnish technology leaders to network and exchange ideas on the role and significance of CTOs in companies. The call for nominations for CTO of the Year 2013 was launched simultaneously.

The participants expressed the wish that government projects would be used to support new and innovative technologies at an early stage. To be a pioneer requires boldness in introducing new technologies and subsidies for major pilot investments. Government projects can create a domestic market, which in turn will support Finnish companies in developing into global operations.

One point made at the forum was that the best ideas often emerge when representatives from different business sectors get together to discuss various solutions to problems that they share, and the participants would like to see more opportunities for networking and cooperation between different sectors.

The CTO of the Year award and the CTO Forum are joint projects of Technology Academy Finland (TAF), Spinverse Oy, Confederation of Finnish Industries EK and Sitra. More information on the award and nomination process available at www.vuodencto.fi.
