VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd is the largest internationally networked R&D centre for applied research in Northern Europe, harnessing high technology to develop scientific solutions for sustainable development and creating new business opportunities. VTT’s mission is to produce research and innovation services that enhance the international competitiveness of companies, society and other customers as well as to create the prerequisites for society’s sustainable development, employment and wellbeing. VTT has focused its activities based on strong vision for industrial exploitation and customer potential in Finland, potential to achieve global technology excellence level, building on multidisciplinary approach and taking into account the global RD competence situation and VTT’s investment capabilities.
VTT’s activities are focused on three business areas: Knowledge intensive products and services (KIPS), Smart industry and energy systems (IND) and Solutions for natural resources and environment (SONE). The SONE business area aims to be one of the global key players in the fields of bioeconomy and cleantech through networking with the best international partners. In SONE, the main target is to develop innovations for industrial ecosystems that support the utilization of natural resources. Industrial biotechnology, biofuel and bioenergy concepts, biomass and food processing technologies as well as process technology and environmental engineering are its core research focus areas. The research is supported by a unique laboratory and pilot infrastructure in thermochemical processing, industrial biotechnology, biofuel production as well as fibre and composite technologies.
