Aalto University Energy Science Initiative (ESCI) is a multidiscplinary research and educational initiative in energy hosted by the Aalto University School of Science. The aim is to link science excellence with energy relevant topics. The thematic focus is two central areas in energy: Materials in Energy, and Energy, Systems and Society – systemic research. ESCI started in January 2012.
Aalto Brain Centre (ABC), hosted by Aalto University’s School of Science, will start in June 2014 as the continuation and expansion of the currently running 5-yr multidisciplinary aivoAALTO project that focuses on brain imaging in naturalistic conditions. ABC will, as a thematic centre, improve the synergy between Aalto SCI’s strong research lines in systems-level neuroscience, complex networks, advanced signal analysis, and neurotechnology.
