Aalto University's Impact on Society

The Aalto timeline tells a story visualising and describing Game Changers, which can be events and innovations, derived from Aalto University and its predecessors. Or people, who have had a great impact on Aalto and the Finnish society.

The timeline is gradually evolving, therefore, we reach out to you to give your contribution in telling the Aalto story from 1849 to date, and into the future. Share your ideas with us! If something is missing from the timeline, tell us about it by clicking on 'Propose' and send your suggestion. Many thanks for your input!
