We would like to introduce Erika Lehtonen who has started as our new Project and Communications Manager at NIVA as of 7th January 2020. Erika will be filling in for Linda Oksanen who is currently on maternity leave.

Erika has a bachelor’s degree in Culture and Arts and has also studied political science at the University of Helsinki. She is joining us from another Nordic institution where she has previously worked with event management and communication.

Erika enjoys working within a Nordic context and strongly believes in the value of Nordic cooperation. After all, the best way to achieve the Nordic vision of 2030 is by working together and learning from each other!

In her spare time Erika enjoys running, playing tennis and spending time with her family.
