Continuous development, curiosity and passion direct our efforts in developing new technologies and finding responsible scientific solutions intended to make a better world. Our research aims to address the increasingly complex challenges faced by society; namely, those associated with energy, the environment, wellbeing, and decision-making.
The school's research focus areas are:
- Biomedical engineering
- Condensed-matter and materials physics
- Computational and mathematical sciences
- Computer science and engineering
- Creating and transforming technology-based business
- Energy sciences, including nuclear engineering
- Neuroscience and -technology
The school has experienced notable success in terms of the national and international funding it receives. There are six Academy of Finland Centres of Excellence at the school, and nine researchers are currently funded by the European Research Council, ERC. In addition, there are three Academicians of Science and four Academy of Finland Professors at the school. The school is involved in two broad-ranging Flagship projects funded by the European Commission (Graphene and the Human Brain Project).
Research conducted at the School of Science generates over 1 000 scientific publications a year.
The broad-ranging and interdisciplinary approach to research taken at the school pervades the university itself and reaches out to our partners through a strong commitment to networking. Within the university, the school's multi-disciplinary research groups work together and in close cooperation with those of Aalto's other schools on projects that seek to address challenges associated with energy and digitisation, for example. World-class research requires a broad-based approach to international networking with the best universities in their respective fields.
The research environments provide access to cutting-edge equipment for neuroimaging (Aalto NeuroImaging), nano-sised structures and materials (Otaniemi Micro and Nanotechnologies), and a low-temperature research facility (Low Temperature Laboratory). All three of the research infrastructures were approved as part of Finland's national strategy and roadmap for research infrastructures 2014–2020.

Researchers discover attacks against widely used cryptographic libraries
The researchers fixed the vulnerability by editing the code in a way that the attacker cannot learn the secret key of the victim.
