When it comes to digitalisation, Aalto is the leading university in Finland and among the top 1% in the world. Aalto represents 25–35% of the scientific publications and university education in the field of ICT and digitalization in Finland. This forms the foundation for our spearhead in Finland’s drive towards digitizing many aspects of society – from new consumer services to media, entertainment, education, health care, retail, and several areas of industry.

Our strengths in the field of digitalisation are immense and we have over 100 professors working in the fields that we represent. ICT and digitalization research relates to both theory and practice, computational and mathematical sciences, software and hardware technologies, secure communications, digital media, digital services, and digital engineering and management across technologies and industrial sectors.

This combination provides an excellent launch pad for interdisciplinary innovations. For instance, digitalization and social media are topics which may only be profoundly understood via multidisciplinary viewpoints combining arts, business, science and technology.
