Maria Jalavisto

Project Coordinator, Human-driven data economy, Sitra


Maria Jalavisto is the project coordinator for the IHAN® project. She is in charge of events organisation and duties concerning international stakeholders in the project and some communicational tasks.


Maria has a breadth of experience in both internal and external corporate communications, events organisation and project management. She holds a master’s degree in cultural studies and – as her secret weapon – she is also a professional make-up artist.

What else?

Maria has a serious travel bug, so whenever she can she will head for new territories. So far her favourites are New Zealand and Iceland, and she is next planning trips to Africa and South America. Maria dreams of a future where young people think of animal-based products the way today’s teens think of landlines and music cassettes.
