Many of our webinars will be recorded and published on the Aalto Research Services YouTube channel. There you can also find previous recordings. Our lectures include interactive segments or a Q&A session at the end, which won't be recorded to respect your privacy. We encourage you to actively participate, pose questions to our experts, and contribute to the discussion. While some sessions may feature specific information regarding Aalto researchers, the fundamental principles we delve into are universally applicable.

Join the conversation – we're excited to see you in the spring training sessions!
