Seed funded research projects at Autumn 2017

The Aalto Platforms deliver internal Joint Strategic Funding for supporting multidisciplinary, cross-School collaboration and international collaboration. The call is opened twice a year, in the spring and in the autumn.

In the Autumn 2017, Aalto seed funding (TOT 415 K€) was available for three different kinds of funding instruments:

A) the preparation of major, interdisciplinary proposals seeking external funding
B) Aalto-internal mobility between two Aalto Schools
C) Multidisciplinary openings to integrate creative practices and design thinking with technology and business inside Aalto.

In this round following experience -related projects were funded:

Neuroimaging of empathy in engineering and design (Gategory A, Aalto ENG & SCI collaboration, PI Prof. Katja Hölttä-Otto, School of Engineering)

Connected Transport Corridors – CoCo (Gategory A, Aalto SCI & ENG collaboration, PI Prof. Matti Vartiainen, School of Science)
