The annual Research Service Days (Tutkimuspalvelupäivät) is a professional event for research administration and management experts at universities and research institutes. This year's event is organised by Aalto University.
Research Service Days 2023 are organised in Aalto University's Otaniemi campus.
The Otaniemi campus area was established in 1949, when the State purchased land for the future location of the Helsinki University of Technology and the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. The street plan for the area was designed by architect Alvar Aalto. The goal of campus development is a mixture of valuable history and new kind of planning. Learn more about the Otaniemi campus.
