Acoustics research receives Nordic Hub Funding
The Nordic Sound and Music Computing Network NordicSMC has been awarded NOK 20 million (EUR 2 million) funding by NordForsk's new funding instrument, Nordic University Hubs. Professors Vesa Välimäki and Ville Pulkki are Aalto’s researchers in the network.
The Nordic Sound and Music Computing Network (NordicSMC) will bring together a group of internationally leading sound and music computing researchers from all five Nordic countries, from Aalborg University (AAU), Aalto University (AALTO), KTH Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), University of Iceland (UoI), and University of Oslo (UiO).
The constellation is unique in that the network covers the field of sound and music from the soft to the hard, including the arts and humanities, the social and natural sciences, and with a high level of technological competency.
