Jukka Jaatinen, MSc (Tech), has started working as PrintoCent’s Co-Creation Manager. Jaatinen will be responsible for activities between stakeholders in the area of printed electronics. He will create and develop new, customer-oriented research projects in cooperation with the rest of the organisation.
PrintoCent focuses on the study, commercialisation and industrial utilisation of printed intelligence. Light and durable printed intelligence solutions can be used in many industries, and PrintoCent is actively involved in driving development in the field.
My job is to discover and support new initiatives and applications for printed intelligence solutions. I will develop PrintoCent’s collaboration with companies and other research organisations in the field for the benefit of future innovations, based on the different parties’ needs, says Jaatinen.
Key areas include health technology, IoT and lighting and display solutions
Printed intelligence is used widely in applications ranging from traditional electronic products to heavy industry. It can be integrated into a variety of surfaces and materials from glass to plastics and textiles.
Printed intelligence is a growing trend in fields such as health and wellness technology and self-diagnostics. Our other key areas include IoT and device-to-device communication and – a particularly interesting application area – the automotive industry and traffic.
Strong business vision to benefit PrintoCent
Jaatinen is a Master of Science in optoelectronics and telecommunications technology. He has over 25 years of experience in product development, research and business management at Nokia, Polar Electro Oy and Senop Oy.
Jukka is well-positioned to continue and help develop the printed electronics success story. He knows R&D and wellness technology both in Finland and globally. We have just embarked on a new strategy period with the PrintoCent industry cluster, and Jukka will play a key role in helping us achieve the objectives of the strategy period – the industrialisation of printed electronics, remarks Jussi Paakkari, Head of Sensing and Integration (BA14) Research Area.
Health and wellbeing also interest Jaatinen in his free time. He likes to relax in various physical activities and contributes time to support child and youth sports.
