“The year 2020 is coming to an end. I started as CEO of Technology Academy Finland in September, with the target of making the Millennium Technology Prize even more relevant and better known globally than it is today.
It has been quite a special year. The Millennium Technology Prize was to be handed out in May 2020, but due to the coronavirus situation, the event was postponed until May 2021. TAF is now busy preparing for a new kind of award ceremony, to be live-streamed to the world, and the adjoining Millennium Innovation Forum, a one-day seminar with high profile speakers. It will be organized as a virtual event, with speakers on-site and participants online. The line-up of internationally renowned speakers is guaranteed to stir your heart and open your mind. We offer you ideas, inspiration and access to collaborative networks that will help you to further develop yourself and your organization. The focus of the Forum is on how research, knowledge and innovation impact the wellbeing and future of our society.
We are also busy working on a renewal project of the Millennium Technology Prize. Stay tuned for more information on the topic at the time of the award ceremony in May.
I wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Safe New Year 2021! See you online on May 18-19, 2021.
CEO, Technology Academy Finland
