The Test Site interlinks an open community with a physical space in Ossinlampi Otaniemi campus. This student-led network enables experimental and synergetic projects in practical sustainability.

The initiative stems from students from the Creative Sustainability Master's Programme, but is open for all students and teaching purposes.

Since the launch of the site, supporters of the initiative include SitraAalto Sustainability Hub (ASH), ACRE and Helsinki Region Environmental Services Authority (HSY).
