We are very pleased to welcome to our team Heini Järvinen, a multidisciplinary communications professional with more than a decade of experience in strategic comms, graphic design and layouts, social media, content writing and editing, press work, and communications tools and practices that respect privacy.
She will be helping us out with in-house marketing and communications, but most of her time will be spent coordinating our activities connected to a new EU Horizon 2020 project that we joined as a consortium partner earlier this year. The project is called GEIGER, and it is all about addressing the myriad of security, privacy and data protection risks of and for SMEs and micro-enterprises in Europe.
But more on that later!
Before joining tech.eu, Heini led the communications work of non-profit EDRi, the European network defending citizens' digital rights. Sorry, EDRi...
Heini hails from Finland but has been working and living in Brussels for 14 years. Only yesterday on a team call did I find out her first name is pronounced 'hay-nee' rather than 'hi-nee'. You live, you learn.
Welcome aboard Heini!
