Week 4: part 2

Wednesday 27.6.: In the morning we visited UPM and met Anne Meriluoto. She told us about BioFibrils. We also had a visit to VTT. There we met Pia Qvintus, Karita Kinnunen ja Pauliina Tukiainen. Qvintus told us about nano-cellulose research and we had a chance to feel out the fibers. Kinnunen shared the information on the technology of foam coating. As a total, the day was really instructive.

Thursday 28.6.: We did some research about the selected ideas in the morning and met Professors Pirjo Kääriäinen and Tapani Vuorinen in the afternoon. In this meeting we talked about the plans for July. Pirjo and Tapani will be on holiday and the next meeting will be in August.

Friday 29.6.: We received some samples of BioFibrils from UPM to make hands on tests. Immediately we started tint the fibers. In the afternoon we agreed on the next week timetable and some general structures of the project.
