We also want to be part of the university’s research and innovation work that advances our society in an effective manner’, Kai Telanne emphasizes.
Through the partner programme companies are able to take part in persevering collaboration with Aalto University in many different areas. Developing the employer image, participation in teaching, research cooperation in connection with student projects, for instance, and serving as a visiting lecturer are all examples of possible forms of collaboration. Thirteen companies are currently in the programme.
