Hub at aalto.fi
For small scale projects fully part of Aalto University where no budget is allocated, a hub at aalto.fi is recommended. It runs on Drupal, one of the most popular CMS solutions, and keeps the same look and feel as well as all the components made available for aalto.fi. With the current navigation options, it will take the form of a mini-site inside the umbrella site i.e. aalto.fi. No custom-made solutions are possible though. The domain will read as www.aalto.fi/name.
Example (basic hub): www.aalto.fi/wood-program
Example (school hub): www.aalto.fi/school-of-business
