Tuomisto’s medal of honour is a sign for fostering and promotion of education and research in the field of nuclear engineering.

Tuomisto has previously studied and worked in France and collaborated with French colleagues here in Finland.

- I wish to make the point that coordination and collaboration in education and training on European and international levels are the business of everyone. And, while this needs highest-level deliberations and decisions, actions are mostly on the grass-root-level and bilateral, for example between Finnish and French organizations and colleagues. Let us nurture these ties, he said in his speech.

Tuomisto and the Dean of the Aalto Universoty's School of Science, professor Risto Nieminen.

On the same occasion, Mostura presented professor Mikael Hildén from SYKE the insignia of Chevalier dans l’ordre national du Mérite and the insignia of Officier dans l’ordre des Palmes académiques to Martti Hyvönen, former head of Environment department of Helsingin Energia.
