The Digital University
Kati Hagros, Chief Digital Officer, Aalto University
Aalto University has set itself an ambitious goal: we aim to be an acknowledged European leader in digitalization research and practice by 2022. What does digitalization mean in university context? What have we learned on the way? What should be done in Finland to truly capture the opportunities of digitalization in the universities?
Jarno Limnéll, Professor of Practice, Aalto University
The accelerating development of technology will significantly affect security and how to prepare for threats related to it. A comprehensive understanding and control of security is more and more amplified, with the digital and physical worlds understood as a whole. In the era of technology, even the responsibility of individuals and ethical questions are emphasized.
