"We consider higher education to be important, and we also want to support the operating conditions of universities and higher education institutions," says Jorma Eloranta, Chair of the Board of Directors of Neste.
"Neste has extensive and productive R&D activities. However, they would not be as successful without close cooperation with universities and higher education institutions. What is more, basic education offered by universities and higher education institutions is important to us in that we need highly educated people to secure our company's success also in the future," Eloranta continues.
