Science Factories

Aalto Science Institute supports the exploration of science by providing a platform to organise thematic Science Factories for addressing challenging, often multi-disciplinary scientific problems.

These events range from workshops to small conferences and research programmes that gather together a limited number of scientists to work on a focused topic. They are aimed at international and Aalto scientists to meet and focus on timely and novel themes of modern research.
