To achieve human wellbeing in planetary boundaries, we need new sustainable solutions to wisely use our natural resources. The Bioinnovation Center especially focuses on innovations in sustainable bio-based materials, with special focus on textiles and packaging.
Facilitating the future of sustainable textiles and packaging: Aalto University Bioinnovation Center
Futuristic, sustainable textiles and packaging
With new sustainable biomaterial solutions, we can decrease our dependency on single-use plastics, and fossil-based materials in packaging and textiles. By combining artificial intelligence, electronics, design and materials science, new materials like eTextiles or ePackaging can be developed.
The posters made by Aalto University Bioinnovation Center's doctoral students introduce five futuristic research projects in sustainable textiles and packaging made with biomaterials.
Open lecture on bioinnovations
The bioinnovation exhibition will be complemented by an open, public lecture in Finnish for high school and vocational students, and anyone interested in the topic.

Noora Yau: Bioinnovaatioita kestävään tulevaisuuteen - kimaltavaa puuta
"Bioinnovations for a sustainable future" is a joint effort between Aalto University Bioinnovation Center and Aalto Junior.
Aalto University Junior is art, science, technology and entrepreneurship for children, young people and teachers - to support teaching, personal joy and a source of enthusiasm.
Aalto University’s Bioinnovation Centre will be established with the grant amounting over 10 million euros received from Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation. Bioinnovation Centre will start its operation in 2021 by the recruitment of a professor enabled by the grant and opening the first call for the doctoral school supported by the grant.
Have a look at Aalto Junior's participatory art piece featured at Designs for a Cooler Planet 2022.
In The Aalto University Junior’s project, textile waste is turned into a collective art piece representing the importance of the meadows.
Designs for a Cooler Planet is a five-week-long festival celebrating experiments in planet-friendly materials, fashion, and food.
