Get to know Aalto University’s global impact projects

 

At Aalto University, sustainable global impact takes many forms from educational programs to research projects, capacity-building initiatives and entrepreneurial activities. The projects are inherently multicultural and interdisciplinary, and typically involve multiple partners such as universities, governments, NGOs and private sector companies.

To share this global impact work with the public, we created a poster exhibition for the recent Aalto Festival 2016. The posters, which showcase many of the projects, are now available also digitally. Take a look and get familiar with the impact work at Aalto University.
