Marco Lucisano

is @sweden 2018-07-16 to 2018-07-23

My name is Marco Lucisano, @marcolucisano, a 44-year-old Italian living in Stockholm since 1995. I am an engineer, researcher and papermaker by training and I am the Vice President for Papermaking and Packaging at RISE, Research Institutes of Sweden. My work brings me to the intersection of research and innovation with opportunities and challenges in society. I enjoy change, creating and testing something new and the thrill of a slippery slope.

The main theme of my tweets this week will be innovative solutions for a more sustainable future. We are surrounded by a positive wave of innovations and I am excited about the future and sure that we can all do our part in shaping it for the better.

Technology and hi-tech gadgets are two passions of mine. I am sure that I will be tempted to throw in some extra tweets covering two other great interests of mine: food and fitness.

Whenever I am not @sweden, you can follow me on @marcolucisano  or via my LinkedIn-profile.
