Welcome to the grand opening of the Aalto University Experience Platform!
Today, consumers and businesses invest in experiences that enhance subjective pleasure and well-being, rather than in material possessions. Aalto Experience platform fosters and promotes a multi-disciplinary approach to understanding and designing for experiences by combining scientific, artistic, business, and technological angles to human experiences.
This kick-off event aims to highlight the multi-disciplinarity of human experiences by keynotes and networking activities between academia and industry, and between different disciplines.
