Events organized by Materials Platform in 2019:
Materials Platform is organizing its annual photography event to support researchers in their application process. The event is meant for materials researchers who are preparing for funding applications this semester and need quality photographs of their materials samples to support the proposal.
Materials Matter is the manifest of the Aalto University scientific excellence in materials research at Slush 2018. Now all Aalto University and our dear guests have a chance to see it themselves! We are bringing the exhibited projects to the Dipoli Gallery for all of you to learn more about the exciting world of materials.
The exhibition will be open from 23.01.2019 (18:00) to 03.03.2019 (12:00) for everyone. To plan your visit, please mind the Dipoli opening hours.
Materials and Energy Platforms present a Networking Series to support you to learn about and practice networking skills.
The international workshop and tutorial focuses on young researchers to cultivate the next generation of scientists to proactively and efficiently exploit data-driven techniques in materials modeling.
Practical tips and tools for networking in a two-hour session.
Scientists from around the world who are working on various aspects of nucleic acid nanotechnology will discuss recent advances, fundamental challenges, and emerging trends in this fascinating research field meet in Otaniemi.
Welcome to AFPM 2019 in Espoo, Finland.
The Advanced Functional Polymers for Medicine (AFPM) 2019 conference will be held in Espoo, Finland from June 5th to June 7th, 2019. The conference venue is at the campus of Aalto University in Otaniemi, Espoo located close to the capital Helsinki.
During the event, the audience will have a chance to familiarise itself with some of the conceptual ways of thinking about materials that inform the practice of Matthew C. Wilson, the Aalto University Artist in Residence. For Wilson, a material constitutes a multiplicity understood not only in terms of its structure and physical behavior, but also as a potential agent of histories, ideas, ideologies, values, and philosophies. Similarly, the mutability of materials through physical production processes occurs in relation to changing sociocultural processes that produce and mutate their meanings. We are looking forward to addressing those thoughts to the wider scientific community and initiate the discussion.
Materials Matter, and Fragile Water, two popular Aalto University exhibitions, are being featured as part of the Finnish EU presidency, which started at the beginning of July, and which runs for six months.
The event gathers the participants and enthusiasts of the Networking Workshop Series that took place in Spring 2019. Here is your opportunity to master your networking skills in a more relaxed and casual atmosphere. The event is meant mostly for Masters and Doctoral students, but anyone else is very welcome!
We'll see you all on the 2nd of October at 16:00.
Materials and Energy Platforms have designed this workshop and peer-to-peer feedback session for our researchers. We will review a number of posters, give feedback, and discuss the ways to improve the visuals, texts, as well as the content structure. Come as you are, come with your poster, it can be a draft one too!
Materials Platform will showcase aa few Aalto University research projects developed in collaboration with local, European, and international collaborators, originally shown at Slush 2018.

Information will be updated soon.
Advanced Materials, a premier journal in the field, has dedicated an issue to Finnish research, covering several articles from Aalto University.
New materials play an important role in sustainable development and combatting climate change. New uses for old materials can also be a major industrial opportunity: for example, the value of biomass from forests in Finland can be doubled if used for manufacturing products of higher added value.
