This additional funding will support the development of a shared, integrated, long-term Research and Innovation strategy for UNITE!, which has the ambition to transform European higher education through multidisciplinary, multicultural and multilingual education, research and entrepreneurship. Aalto will lead the open science, research and open innovation work package of the proposal. Professor Robin Gustafsson of the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management leads the research of the proposal at Aalto. The grant will allow UNITE! to address some of today´s grand societal challenges thus creating a larger impact than its seven members could have individually.
