VTT Webinar

Revolutionary soft materials with VTT ProperTune® computational design

In this webinar we will introduce a new unique computational material design concept for performance-driven development of soft materials.

The approach is suitable for a broad range of different materials, applications and requirements. Using VTT ProperTune® computational material design, we can understand causal relations that impact material performance, optimise performance by running fully virtual "what-if" scenarios, and virtually test processibility aspects.

Is this for me?

This webinar is meant for companies who are interested in  

  • Reducing time-to-market of novel materials and processes by 50 %;
  • Designing innovative material solutions with systematic data-driven process meeting specific application requirements;
  • Replacing harmful or costly materials by biobased alternatives without adding cost nor deteriorating performance;
  • Finding new raw materials to replace those with poor availability.

We believe that you will get a lot out of this webinar especially if you

  • Work in the process, plastic or forest/bioindustries or
  • Design products from soft materials – such as parts, composites, vehicle components, construction materials etc.

The webinar is aimed at people who are responsible for business, products, operations and/or innovations.


  • Opening, Mika Malkamäki (5 min)
  • Virtual design will revolutionise the development of future materials solutions, Antti Puisto (15 min)
  • Example: Development of virtual design workflows for bio-composites, Tuukka Verho (15 min)
  • Q&A (10 min)

About the design concept

VTT ProperTune® has been developed over the last two decades together with our industrial partners.

We’ve worked with leading international customers including Fortune 500 companies and applied the ProperTune® design concept to critical components and wear parts in mechanical machines and devices, coatings, transportation system components, development of new material compositions and many more fields of material technology.

This webinar is about soft materials including biomaterials, plastics and biocomposites.
