PRODUCT DESIGN GALA | FRIDAY 4.9.20 9:00-17:00
Aalto Design Factory & Urban Mill
Betonimiehenkuja 5C & 3, Otaniemi, Espoo, Finland
For 23 years PdP has brought students of engineering, design, and business together to tackle industry problems and develop state of the art solutions to real-life challenges. At the Final Product Design Gala you’ll get to witness and experience these awesome products.
So come and fall in love with the results of our interdisciplinary Product Development Project teams in the Product Design Gala on 4.9.20 at Aalto Design Factory & Urban Mill!
The student teams from Aalto University and our partner universities have been working hard for the last 9 months, to complete their design challenges given by industrial companies and other collaborating parties. In the public exhibition, you will have a chance to hear about the teams’ accomplishments and process, as well as to get familiar with the people themselves together with their amazing prototypes.
We aim to give the virtual attendees a similar experience and access to the students as in an in-person event, without needing to leave your desk. You can join the channels of each PDP team and get to know the students, check their booths, and listen about their projects.
We will be using Jitsi Meet, an open-source video conferencing solution that you can use with no registration, no signup, and no download needed.
