Aalto Science Institute

Aalto Science Institute

The Aalto Science Institute (AScI) is a strategic initiative hosted by the Aalto University School of Science to advance and foster international collaboration and research at the highest level across the fields of science. The key dimensions of the AScI initiative are quality, internationalisation, and collaboration. AScI supports the renewal of research excellence in Aalto by providing a platform and instruments for exploring new interdisciplinary research directions with breakthrough potential.

Thematic Research Programmes

AScI invited proposals by the School of Science faculty and staff for thematic research programmes. Idea of the thematic programmes is to identify upcoming novel fields or topic areas of research not currently well represented in the School of Science or Aalto University and to allow investment in the exploration and development of new research fields based on the existing strengths.

Machine learning strategies for optimising frictional properties of materials

The programme aims at combining physics of friction - and materials science in general - with machine learning, in order to explore possibilities to efficiently optimise and predict materials properties.
