Fixing back problems and improving hygiene at music festivals: innovative ideas by this year’s undergraduate student projects
The theme of this year’s annual SCI course project was health and well-being
Researchers from Aalto University and Northeastern University (China) have demonstrated a solid oxide fuel cell based on a single-oxide SrTiO2 electrolyte. A high power density of 620 mW per cm2 with hydrogen as fuel was obtained. The electrolyte forms a mixed proton and oxygen ion conductor with a core-shell structure
Annual prize ceremony celebrates the best doctoral dissertations of the past year
The topics covered in the alumni seminar also included new business models and the societal impact of AI and digitalisation.
The message of Aalto Junior’s Women’s Day event was that, in the field of technology, nothing is impossible for women. More than 100 participants from schools in Greater Helsinki had an opportunity to visit, among others, Aalto's space laboratory.
