Information for Partners

Every year, we collaborate with Finnish Ministries and public authorities to work together on current national-level issues with a human-centred and systemic approach. This year, the course starts on the 26th of February and lasts for 12 weeks.

Partners are required to:

  • Co-define a project challenge together with DfG team
  • Participate in four course sessions: Round table (March), Mid-term feedback (April), Ideation (May) and Final Show event (29th May 2024)
  • Pay the Aalto’s standard commission fee

As a result of this course, you will receive a project proposal, compiled in a project report and final presentation. As part of the course activities, students conduct ethnographic qualitative research, involve different stakeholder groups in framing a shared understanding of the problem area, analyse opportunities with systems thinking perspective and design behavioural-based interventions. The DfG project proposals inform both policy-framing and policy implementations, by providing concrete examples of a policy in use within diverse realities and stakeholders involved.

You can find previous year’s examples here!
