Aalto Health Platform

Aalto Health Platform is a collaborative program that creates a framework for Aalto to deepen and widen its joint work with its partner organizations in the area of health and wellbeing (H&W), which is one of Aalto University’s strategic focus areas for research.

The platform’s role is to support Aalto’s H&W research activities, facilitate technology transfer towards innovations and startups and the broader high technology industries, and further develop the societal impact of Aalto’s work.
