From Lab to Market: Research ♥︎ Design — The overlooked power couple



Researchers rarely think about design. And designers rarely think about research.

​That makes little sense today. For Lotta Partanen (Aalto graduate, now at VTT) and Maija Itkonen (Aalto graduate, now at Oneger Bio), design is rocket fuel in combination with research.

​But few others are combining the two effectively. That means a great opportunity for you!

​This event has two sides: The perspectives of you as a researcher and you as a designer. Lotta and Maija both share practical insights and best practices when involving designers in research projects while taking into account the needs of both roles.

​During the event, you will get the opportunity to ask questions and interact. After the main part, there is an opportunity to chat with the speakers and to connect with the audience of both researchers and designers.

From Lab to Market event series is organized by Aalto Ventures Program, VTT Launchpad, Aalto Startup Center, and Aalto Innovation Services. The events are hosted by Rasmus Basilier, CEO of The Authentic Content Company.
