The Platforms facilitate multi- and interdisciplinary research and teaching in thematic areas. They organise annually several thematic meetings which offer external stakeholders possibilities for co-operation and networking. They, also, bring together Aalto's expertise across departments.
What is the Digi Platform?
Bringing Academia & Industry Closer
The most visible part of this work are our public events, free and open to anyone interested in digital technologies.
Digi breakfasts feature inspiring expert talks, panel discussions, and, of course, networking by a tasty breakfast.
In our matchmaking events, researchers can showcase their work and get to know prospective partners in the industry.
Bottom-up Initiatives: Community Events
Digital transformation is related to all schools and research areas in Aalto. We want to help build a research-oriented community of students and scholars that brings together people from all disciplines.
Initiatives we have supported:
Calls for seed funding (up to 30 000 euros) for research groups are open twice a year. Digi Platform board evaluates the applications related to digital technologies.
