I am an expert in the maritime cluster, i.e. the business and public sector related to the marine industry, shipping and port operations. I have a degree of Master of Social Sciences and more than 20 years of experience in research and development at the University of Turku. As a result, I have extensive networks at regional, national and international level.

My tasks include the development of regional maritime cluster cooperation networks and the promotion of RDI activities, university cooperation and investments of maritime companies. If you have business development needs, are interested in cooperation with universities or are planning to locate in the Turku region, please contact me!
