Lauri Reuter

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland
Senior Specialist of Disruptive Technologies
Lauri Reuter works as the senior specialist of disruptive technologies at the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. He started his career at VTT in 2012 as a researcher in the biotechnology team, but has since consistently focused more and more on larger, world-changing visions. In 2017, he attended the Global Solutions Program at Singularity University in California, where he got to explore all the top-notch technologies being created to solve the huge problems societies are facing, such as climate change and famine. In his current position, Reuter’s task is to bring this line of thought to VTT. His responsibilities include figuring out which technologies will truly change the world and building a new research programme focusing on bold and wild research ideas. As someone who enjoys abstract and associative work, he finds that he has a lot to offer in his current role. Reuter is also a highly valued science communicator whose research on applying biotechnology to the food industry has attracted wide attention in the Finnish media.
