Telecom pioneers of the future – the Östen Mäkitalo Award

Posted by: Jenny Minnema   /   0 Comment


stenMkitalo2In memory of our long-time Guest-professor and fellow-researcher, Östen Mäkitalo, and his great achievements,  TeliaSonera has instituted a scholarship, The Östen Mäkitalo Award. The scholarship will be given to entrepreneurs and scientists who have pioneered the telecom field and who we believe have the same potential as Östen Mäkitalo had – a potential that could change the way we live.


If you know of a telecom pioneer that you think has this potential and should be considered for the scholarship, please let the scholarship committee know. Maybe he or she is the next Östen Mäkitalo!  Mail your suggestions with a short motivation to the committee at
