With this donation, we want to especially support the profiling and specialisation of universities as well as cooperation between universities, explains Jorma Turunen, CEO of The Federation of Finnish Technology Industries.

- We thank the Federation of Finnish Technology Industries for the donation that will help us keep educating experts who have the ability and vision to change the world, says Tuula Teeri, President of Aalto University.
