World changers

Jouni Lounasmaa served as the KAUTE Foundation’s director for ten years and led the foundation into the 2010s. Over the last decade, the foundation’s interaction with the rest of society has increased and its cooperation with other foundations has strengthened. The beginning of the 2020s marked another change for the foundation, when Tuomas Olkku took over as Lounasmaa’s successor. His task is to take the foundation in an even more influential direction.

KAUTE’s Avartajat series introduces new and interesting exploration awards from researchers funded by the Foundation. Series stories provide fresh insights into current and emerging phenomena in commercial and technical sciences.
