Digital Aalto

Digital Aalto - It's happening

At Aalto, we’ve already come far in our digitalisation journey. We have a strong research environment and attractive educational offerings supported by digitalisation, as well as a track record of running teaching and research activities online. We use modern digital platforms for a range of services: communication and collaboration, human resources, campus access, partner management and university administration. 

Digitalisation continues to be a key driver and enabler of Aalto’s strategic goals. It provides a foundation that enables us to establish centres of excellence, develop our research infrastructure, improve our quality of learning and student experience, and build innovation, creative, and entrepreneurial ecosystems. 

Aalto continues to invest in open, state-of-the-art physical and digital infrastructures and services, as well as the digital competence of our staff and students. Our next goal is to become a forerunner as a data-driven university.

Four years and lots of tears – three experts tell how they succeeded in making the change

Many entrepreneurs and researchers set their goals based on a realisation that something needs to be done differently. The change they envision might be a new product or material, or it can be a new way to do things. Implementing change isn’t always easy, however, and it demands a stomach for uncertainty, say Professor Michael Hummel and entrepreneurs Annu Nieminen and Richard Nordström.
