Pulp & Beyond - Employer of the Future Theme Day and an excursion to Stockholm


The Employer of The Future Theme Day, aimed at students attending the Pulp & Beyond fair, offers a unique opportunity to network and learn about career opportunities in the field. Additionally, students will have the chance to embark on an exclusive cruise to Stockholm, where we will visit AFRY's headquarters and Stora Enso's innovation center.

The Pulp & Beyond event showcases innovations, products, services, and technologies in the forest-based bioeconomy on April 10-11, 2024, at the Helsinki Exhibition and Convention Centre. Pulp & Beyond serves as a leading international forum, continuing the success story of PulPaper.
