Aalto participates in The Year of Research-Based Knowledge
The Year of Research-Based Knowledge is a joint initiative organised by the Ministry of Education and Culture, the Academy of Finland and the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies. Its aim is to make research-based knowledge even more visible and accessible, and to intensify the collaboration between organisations working with research-based knowledge.
The year gathers actions and events into a programme that gives a comprehensive view of research-based knowledge and its role, for example, in the wellbeing of individuals and in the functioning of society.
The Year of Research-Based Knowledge will increase the visibility of different sources of knowledge, including statistics, reports and analyses, as well as highlight the fundamental nature of knowledge, where knowledge is updated as new research results emerge.
The year is aimed at everyone living in Finland as well as at decision-makers and business and industry. A specific aim is to provide children and young people with creativity, inspiration and hope for the future.
Suggest your own campaign for the program
The programme of the Year of Research-Based Knowledge consists of actions and events produced by our partners.
Any organisation, association or group working with research-based knowledge can apply to become part of the programme with their event, act, campaign, exhibition, artwork, intervention or development project.
We will provide the partners with a collaboration platform to increase national visibility and enable new partnerships.
