We need a new mindset to internationalization in order to encourage our students to obtain competencies needed in an international context. One of these new initiatives is Summer School at Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture which is supported by Jane and Aatos Erkkos Foundation. The financial support consists of 950,000 euro for the years 2021-2024. The Summer School is part of Aalto University’s strategy work and it’s goal is to increase competence in cooperation between creative fields and in utilizing radical creativity.

The content of summer school courses is created in collaboration with researcher from summer school partner universities: The New School Parsons School of Design, The Oslo School of Architecture and Design, Singapore University of Technology and Design, Tecnológico de Monterrey,  Politecnico di Milano and Delft University of Technology. The aim is to invite international students to Aalto University to learn skills how to collaboratively solve the big challenges of our time. The teaching content of the summer 2022 course is designed around themes of circular economy and co-design. Teaching will be implemented as co-teaching both on-site at the Otaniemi campus and online.  The course is available for students at the School of Arts, Design and Architecture and for students at Summer School partner universities.

This is a unique change to learn and develop your ideas in an international, multidisciplinary context and work in high quality laboratories at Aalto University campus.
