9.     ISOISO Recruitment 28.2.-13.3.

ISOISO is a new role made to support the ISOs. ISOISOs are ISOs that have already been involved in ISO activities in the past. Their tasks include assisting, supporting and organising refreshment events for ISOs.
The most important task of ISOISOs is to pass on the knowledge and skills they have learned during their ISO period to their ISO groups. ISOISOs are intended to replace the existing boardISOs.
ISOISO’s tasks also include maintaining the welfare of ISOs. As ISOs will play a greater role in the organisation of events, it is important that the welfare of ISOs is better looked after by the ISOISOs.
ISOISOs are part of the PT’s ISO quota, which entitles them to participate in ISO-related events, such as ISO refreshments of PT and ISO Committee.
This year, a total of 22 ISO groups will be formed; 18 Finnish Bach ISO groups and 4 CHEM Eng groups. One ISOISO will be responsible for supporting two (2) ISO groups, which means that 11 ISOISOs will be selected this year.
Any Prosessiteekkari who has served as an ISO can apply to become an ISO!
The selection process is based on the ISOISO application, which can be found in the registration form of ilmomasiina. If required, this will also include an interview. The application is open until 13.3.

Applying is highly recommended if you want to continue being an ISO and want to be part of developing the ISO department of PT!
You can ask for more information from the ISO Officer in Telegram @huoltomies.

19.   TEK Finnish Language Café returns every Monday and Wednesday!

After a Christmas break, the TEK Finnish Language Café returns to help you practise your Finnish skills outside of your lessons! The café is a low effort opportunity to speak Finnish with other learners, as well as to just have a break from your courses with coffee and snacks. The location is the Otaniemi TEK office, found in the Harold Harlin Learning Centre (via external A door), so can form a convenient part of your day.

The Finnish Café aims to be very casual, with all skill levels of Finnish welcome, especially including those who are native speakers. Whether you are in your first year in Finland or your twentieth, feel free to stop by, chat, and improve your skills!

In terms of integrating into Finland following studies, language problems are consistently given as the number one issue in finding a field relevant job. While native skills are impossible for many, even some Finnish skills can make a huge difference. As part of TEK’s work to improve the ability of international students to thrive in Finland, these cafes can hopefully help you achieve those skills – and therefore a future here!

Starting from Wednesday 01.02., the times of the café throughout the Spring semester are as follows:
Every Monday at 16:15
Every Wednesday at 14:15
Depending on demand, extra sessions can also be organised later on.
We have a Telegram group for communication and extra Finnish practise, as well as for any possible cancellations or changed times. If you have any interest in coming to a café, join it at https://t.me/+_XsOr7ChyPxkOTI8

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to message me at @kvtykki on Telegram, or at owain.hopeaketo@tek.fi.

Nähdään siellä!

The Spring Summit deals with the future of fibre packaging. We are in for interesting speeches from experts concerning the future trends of food packaging, regulatory threats and opportunities as well as practical examples of sustainable fibre-based packaging and investments.

The CTO of Paptic Oy Heidi Saxell will for example talk about the sustainable fibre-based solutions to replace plastic and the Uusi Puu jury will talk about the wood-based innovations now and in the future.

In connection with the summit, we also have the finals of the Wood U Innovate competition for students in higher education, and the winners of the Uusi puu competition will be announced. We will also arrange an excursion to the Valmet head office in Keilasatama for students and recent graduates.

Get to know to the programme and confirm your registration by 12.4.
