VTT at the Finnish Industrial Union’s event for researchers

Factory2Fit partners Päivi Heikkilä and Timo Kuula from VTT attended a researchers’ event hosted by the Finnish Industrial Union in Helsinki on 12th December 2017.

The meeting was chaired by Anu-Hanna Anttila, Head of Research at the Industrial Union. Interesting discussions were held on the persona of the worker and the organisation of industrial work in postwar Finland. Another topic that sparked discussion was outdated presumptions linked to industrial work and the industrial worker. Insightful presentations were given by Pekka Varje from the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health and Mona Mannevuo from the University of Turku.
