The Academy of Finland has awarded Aalto University funding to strengthen its research profile - the funds will be used to accelerate research in quantum technology, hydrogen energy and new materials
The Academy of Finland has granted Aalto University 18.9 million euros in funding to support strengthening its research profile. The funding will accelerate research in quantum technology, hydrogen energy and new materials.
Aalto’s Profi-7 funding application focused on three themes built around the university’s strategy of shaping a sustainable future:
- Quantum Leap focuses on research to develop devices, materials and methods for the ongoing quantum revolution in technology.
- Hydrogen Deal aims to solve linked research problems in the chemical industries and energy sector related to the transition toward wind power and the hydrogen economy.
- Made with Nature focuses on the new research and design paradigms needed as current materials are replaced with engineered and functional biomaterials.
An embedded research program will also target new market transformations in the three theme areas, each at a different stage of market readiness.
