In his new position, Martti Heinonen will follow Mikko Merimaa, who moved to Vice President, Research, at KIPS at the beginning of December.
"I am glad for this opportunity to lead by VTT MIKES research area towards future challenges", Martti says. "We have a competent team in doing internationally high-quality research. Metrology is required in an ever-expanding and changing application field. A digitally dignified world with a considerably smaller environmental burden needs new methods and services to ensure reliability of measurements: we have great opportunities to develop them."
As Vice President, MIKES, Martti will participate in development of the entire business area KIPS (Knowledge intensive products and services) as a member of KIPS leadership team.
