What is the Digi Platform?
The Aalto Digi Platform facilitates and brings together Aalto's competences in this multidisciplinary area, in a bottom up manner, and increases Aalto's visibility. It provides seed funding, arranges matchmaking events, acts as a collaboration platform within Aalto, and provides a "front desk" for external contacts.
Platforms are founded in areas where Aalto has competence both in methodologies, infrastructures, and applications. The focus is both in research, education and impact.
The transformative nature of digitalization calls for a systemic approach and large research consortia with capabilities to tackle multi-faceted and challenging research problems having significant societal impact. In education and learning, the approach is similarly challenge-based, favoring interdisciplinary approach and real-life projects. -- This is what the Digi Platform is meant for.
Our goal is that Aalto becomes the top European university in digitalization, measured by relevant international rankings and other indicators. We aim to increase the resilience of our university and the whole Finnish society: their capability to change and adopt to new challenges.
