Kaisa Karttunen is the programme director at E2 Research. She has extensive experience working in international organizations, several developing countries, as well as at domestic companies, government, and NGOs.  Her tasks have ranged from project planning, implementation, and evaluation to the design of broad strategies and programs.

Karttunen's years at E2 Research have included active participation in the public debate about food and the future of food. Providing and communicating information in a form that serves different audiences is central to her work. An international dimension is also an integral part of her work. This is particularly evident e.g. in her cooperation with several UN organizations and extensive networks around the world.

Through E2 Research, I can do work that is relevant to myself and hopefully also to the whole of Finland and the world.
