The aalto.fi project is part of the university's digitalisation project and it spans over four years. The project for renewing aalto.fi was kick-started at the end of 2017 with moving all aalto.fi site content and integrating Inside to the new content management system. The aim of the project is to create a digital extension of our campus – a communications platform – which provides an easy starting point for everyone’s day. Finding information and sharing it, performing tasks, as well as finding people, is made as easy as can be.
