Information about the Communicum project

The Department of Communication at Aalto ECON and Media and Communication Studies at the Department of Social Research at the University of Helsinki set in motion the Communicum project in late 2010. The aim of the project is to facilitate collaboration between researchers, teachers and students of communication at Aalto University and the University of Helsinki. The premise of the project is that collaboration between the departments synergistically increases their critical mass – ”collaboration and cooperation rather than competition”. During the process also Aalto ARTS Department of Media and Aalto SCI Department of Media Technology have joined the Communicum project, as well as the Department of Economics and Management at the University
