Born in 2017, the Materials Platform is a think tank that receives input from stakeholders inside and outside Aalto University in relation to materials research, education and outreach.

The Materials Platform channels activities to foster multidisciplinary efforts, networking and visibility. Aalto University’s expertise in these areas covers a wide range of fields: from condensed-matter and materials physics, nanoscience and nanotechnology, mechanics and materials to the sustainable use and processing of natural resources. Aalto’s materials research thus contributes to diverse applications in ICT, energy and health technologies, business and design, and many other areas. The innovations based on our materials research provide great opportunities for Finnish and international businesses. More info in our webpages:

On this occasion, the board members of the Materials Platform are pleased to invite you to our launch event on Wednesday 10th May 15.00-17.00 at the new Harald Herlin Learning Center (i.e. library). Deadline for registration is 3th of May. The program includes highlights from different schools and a celebration for the exciting times ahead of us. The platform is open for everyone to join. You will have the opportunity to meet peers and shape our future programs over wine and canapé.

Register here. Space is limited.
