The name, Harald Herlin Learning Centre, pays tribute to Bror Harald Herlin (1874–1941), who was a Finnish engineer, entrepreneur and industrialist. His life's work brings together technology, business, design and entrepreneurship. These things also form the core of the multi-disciplinary activities of Aalto University. The name was chosen together with Aalto’s long-term partner, the Federation of Finnish Technology Industries.
