Aalto University Magazine 14 cover

The technological and social dimensions of health and wellbeing are researched extensively at Aalto University. Vice President Tuija Pulkkinen reminds readers that the practices of research are international and the aim is always to bring its findings to the awareness of a global audience.

The main article, Making health an export product, deals with the Health Capital Helsinki project, which aims to transform the Helsinki region into Northern Europe's leading concentration of expertise in health technology and the life sciences.

This issue's articles present a number of Aalto professors, such as Matti Hämäläinen, who conducts brain research both here and in Harvard, Kimmo Kaski, whose studies utilise patient data computationally, and Paul Lillrank, an expert on the processes of care work.

The alumnus interview of the Who section meets with “growth company godfather” Olli Riikkala, a veteran of the health technology sector. Managing Director Terhi Kajaste of the Finnish Health Technology Association FiHTA also makes an appearance as a columnist for this issue.

The photo reportage piece In there transports the reader to a different ambience in Berlin. This article showcases the Helsinki School programme, which takes young photographic artists to the international arena – and to the global limelight.

A readership survey is being carried out in association with this issue. You can participate in it by answering a set of questions online (taloustutkimus.fi).

Aalto University Magazine is available on issuu.com and English translations of some articles are posted on aalto.fi/magazine.
