My name is Riikka Kumpulainen and I am the admin of this Biobord-platform, as well as the network secretary for our transnational Biobord network.

I work in JAMK University of Applied Sciences, Institute of Bioeconomy, as a project manager. I am focused on international projects. I also work in our bioeconomy business accelerator BioPaavo (international connections, marketing and innovation events). Additionally service design is my passion and what I have studied.

I am always happy to collaborate and connect you with my organization, as well as other bioeconomy actors of Central Finland. Please see the network map, for more reference.

Feel free to contact me with any matter, but especially with questions related to:

  • Use of Biobord platform (registration, user access, technical difficulties etc.)

Happy to meet you!


Dear all, welcome to Biobord!

I represent a research, development and innovation institution named “Institute for Environmental Solutions”. We are based in the outskirts of a beautiful medieval town of Cesis in Latvia. Our institute develops solutions for natural resource management and sustainable use of land by applying multidisciplinarity and technological progress. We promote 21st century Renaissance by fusing science, cutting-edge technology and art, gastronomy, business, and other forms of human creativity. My own specialisation is management of knowledge-intensive business services and innovation.

I’ll be happy to answer to your questions and help you navigate the Biobord platform!
