The Aalto Effect offers a versatile overview of the work Aalto University's researchers are doing for Finland and the world.

Want to know how the nature-inspired world of sound for Helsinki's New Children’s Hospital was created? How artificial intelligence is revolutionizing healthcare? Or how to dress more ecologically and get rid of annoying noise?

You can find answers to these and many more questions in our newly published book, The Aalto Effect. It offers a versatile overview – in both Finnish and English – of the work Aalto University's researchers are doing for Finland and the world.

The book has five themes: energy, health, living, decision-making and design. In addition to extensive theme articles, there are face-to-face interviews, as well as guidance and tips on how each of us can make better choices in our daily lives.

You can download The Aalto Effect for free as a pdf file from the link below or from online Aalto University Shop. The printed book can be purchased for EUR 18 either online or at the Aalto University Shop in Otaniemi, Espoo.
