Aalto Living+ Platform
Aalto Living+ Platform
The Living+ Platform supports cross-disciplinary research on all aspects of human-centered living environments, a key research area of Aalto University.
We continuously engage with external stakeholders to find opportunities for collaboration and networking between researchers, businesses and municipalities. We provide networks and seed funding for cross-school collaboration within Aalto University. In addition, we organize educational lectures and seminars for students, staff and the public.
Supporting new cross-disciplinary research initiatives in the area of human-centered living environments is one of the Living+ Platform’s most crucial tasks. The platform provides multistakeholder networks and seed funding for cross-school collaboration within Aalto University.
The Living+ Platform organize educational lectures and seminars in subjects related to human-centered living environments (Living+). Most notable of these is the annual Living+ Forum lecture series, each year investigating a different sub area related to the Living+. The most recent themes were Inclusive Environments (2019) and Mobility (2018).
The Living+ Platform engages with external stakeholders to find opportunities for collaboration and networking between researchers, businesses and municipalities. The most recent development is the reconstructed Living+ Hub celebrating its grand opening this fall. It is a place where academia, civil servants and businesses are all welcome to meet and openly discuss concerns related to human-centered living environments.
