About the Materials Matter exhibition

No matter how virtual our future may be, we are now living in a material world. Sustainable, bio-based, re-useable, intelligently designed materials solutions aim to ensure a bright future for us all. How are we approaching materials research today? What outcomes can we expect in the coming years?

The Materials Matter exhibition showcases ten scientifically novel materials research projects from Aalto. The exhibited projects were selected by a multidisciplinary team based on scientific novelty and potential interest to the public, investors, and startup entrepreneurs at Slush 2018. In true Aalto spirit, the exhibition is a combination of business, art and architecture, and technological expertise: societally and economically relevant, made by an artistically ambitious team of designers, and featuring cutting-edge science.

The exhibition is open for general public 23.01.2019 - 03.03.2019. To plan your visit, note
