The Center for Science of Information (CSoI) has signed an agreement to become strategic partners of Aalto University and University of Helsinki. Collaboration activities will be coordinated by CSoI and the Helsinki Institute for Information Technology HIIT, a joint research institute of the two Finnish universities.
HIIT’s mission is to conduct top-level research, seamlessly moving between fundamental methods and technologies to novel applications and their impact on people and society. HIIT groups belong to several national Centers of Excellence and co-operate with the information industry and with sciences applying information technology. HIIT works in a multidisciplinary way, with scientists from computer, natural, behavioral and social sciences, as well as from humanities and design.
Other CSoI strategic partners in Europe are ETH (Zürich, Switzerland) and the LINCS network (Paris, France).
