Just over four years ago, Pär-Erik Martinsson left the job as project manager at ProcessIT. His new position as operational manager thus means a comeback to the university.
– I was actually there when Process IT started almost 15 years ago. Now I return as operational manager and it will be incredibly fun to take on that task, says Pär-Erik Martinsson.
In recent years he has had several different assignments. First he worked for FindIT in Sandviken and most recently at the research institute Rise and Digital Sweden. Cooperation between industry and other actors goes like a red thread throughout his career.
Now Pär-Erik Martinsson will be busy with a lot of strategic work.
– Together with the board, we will develop a plan for how Process IT Innovations will work after 2020. It is primarily about clarifying what we want to achieve in the future and how we can secure our long-term financing.
Why is ProcessIT Innovations needed?
– In summary, we operate in a unique area, we have great confidence and we create fine results. Our focus on automation and digitization for the process and engineering industry is unique, we are driving the technological development in this specific area, says Pär-Erik Martinsson.
– We have lowered the barriers for companies to start talking to each other and carry out joint projects and activities. We also contribute with hard results, new technological solutions, innovations, and jobs.
Pär-Erik Martinsson succeeds John Lindström, who is now the operations manager for the Center for Critical Infrastructure and Societal Security.
