Aalto Systems Forum

The growing challenge of our time is the need to have the ability to see and manage wholes, i.e. systems. We live in a world where problems in technology, economy, organisations and the environment are strongly interconnected, include multiple criteria and are dynamic and evolve over time. The field of Systems Sciences develops tools and approaches to deal with these problems.

The Aalto Systems Forum aims to be a platform of dialogue for practitioners and researchers to share the latest results of our field by top international scholars.

The events are free and open to all interested.
