Tapani Jokinen’s field of research is electrical engineering, particularly electromechanics. He has worked in partnership with the universities in Budapest and Pécs since the 1970s.

In addition to Tapani Jokinen, Professor Janusz Kacprzyk, Academician from the Polish Academy of Sciences, and Professor Didier Dubois from Paul Sabatier University in France received honorary doctorates.

After the ceremony, the new Honorary Doctors held inaugural lectures on their chosen topics. The topic of Tapani Jokinen’s lecture was ‘How can I find new and fresh ideas?’.
