Aalto Handbook

University Preview 2023

The preview evaluates changes and trends related to our operating environment. As a result of the preview, the strategy or targets can be updated to support the planning process for the coming years.

The aim of the fall 2023 University Preview is to support the development of Aalto's living strategy by proactively ensuring the relevance of our purpose, values, focus of development and the most important trends shaping us.

The principle of a living strategy is the possibility to constantly evaluate our choices. The preview also supports our preparation for Aalto's negotiations with the Ministry of Education and Culture for the period 2025-2028.

We now invite all staff and students to present their views and answer the survey (link to the survey). Based on the feedback received, the discussion continues in different working groups and sessions, e.g. in schools' management teams and university's steering groups.
