Wordpress-website for projects

Research projects, groups and conferences need a website to communicate about the project. Aalto University enables the establishment of a website by offering the design of the site’s appearance, technical implementation and data-secure maintenance of the sites through our partners. Any section of these is also available independently.

The content is created by using Wordpress if the project does not belong under the Aalto University brand.
 

How can I obtain a website for my project?

  1. A website needs a layout and/or technical implementation

    A site needs a layout and/or technical implementation. Wordpress has ready-made themes, but we recommend ordering the layout and technical implementation of page templates from Unigrafia, to ensure that the layout is high quality. Please contact: [email protected] Note! If you order the implementation of the site from Unigrafia, they can also perform sections 2 & 4.

  2. A website needs a server

    A site needs a server. The site is maintained on servers owned by our partner Seravo Oy, who keeps the Wordpress version updated and the site data-secure. Most common: WP Pro (30€/month for people at Aalto)
