In line with the idea of an open university campus that promotes collaboration, A Grid will be a community that encourages sharing thoughts, expertise and resources with the community on campus and beyond. Events and workshops will be organised in A Grid based on the companies’ interests. Students could find jobs in the startups, and startups could get involved in the study projects. Aalto is also currently piloting ways to connect startups with the university infrastructure and makers’ spaces. In some cases, cooperation could be taken further.
