Jukka T. Hast received the M.Sc. (Tech.) and D. Sc. (Tech.) degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Oulu, Oulu, Finland in 1999 and 2003 respectively. He has in-depth technical knowledge of applied electronics and strong senior executive experience from managing extensive, international R&D projects with a strong commercial orientation.  He is currently Research Manager of Sensing and Integration research area at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland ltd. He is responsible for self - and jointly funded project portfolio which covers wide range of electronics hardware including photonics measurement techniques, printed and flexible electronics as well as biosensors and diagnostics. He is also actively working with several global stakeholder networks: Organic Electronics Association (OE-A) Board of Directors member, Photonics21, Energy Materials Industrial Research Initiative (EMIRI) PV & CSP working group and European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) photovoltaic solar energy programme.

Abstract: Towards more sustainable flexible, printable sensors and systems
There is great push to transfer from linear towards circular economy and achieve climate neutral societies during coming decades. Electronics/ICT is one of the priority sectors and need to decrease environmental footprint of electronics is important. Global electrical and electronic waste production is increasing with only tens of percent’s are collected/recycled properly. In addition, global consumption of material resources is expected to be more than double between 2015 and 2050. Our great interest is to explore new more sustainable and recyclable biomaterials including biobased plastics, compostable and recyclable materials in future flexible, printable sensors and systems. This presentation will introduce interactive signage display embedded in foam formed cellulose fiber structures, paper based hybrid electronics as well as utilization of recycled and renewable biobased plastics in structural electronics.
