Deficiency of vitamin B1 (thiamine) in wildlife was previously described as a problem among certain species within relatively limited geographical areas. Now, researchers at ACES, together with colleagues from several other research institutions in Europe and North America, show that thiamine deficiency is far more widespread than previously thought. The results are published in the journal Scientific Reports.
Future climate warming could lead to a re-greening of the southernmost Sahara (Sahel), with decreased dust emissions and changes in land cover. In a recent study, researchers at the Department of Meteorology have found that tropical cyclone activity may have increased during past warm climates in connection with a greening of the Sahara.
Frank Wilczek, professor at the Department of Physics and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Johan Rockström, Professor of Environmental Science and Director of the Stockholm Resilience Centre and David Strömberg at the Institute for International Economic Studies (IIES). These three professors at Stockholm University will receive prestigious ERC Advanced Grants.
Researchers at Umeå University have developed a model that uses seasonal weather data from satellite images to accurately predict outbreak of malaria with a one-month lead time. With a so-called GAMBOOST model, a host of weather information gathered from satellite images can be used as a cost-effective disease forecasting model, allowing health officials to get ahead of the malaria infection curve by allocating resources and mobilizing public health responses. The model was recently described in the journal Scientific Reports, a Nature Research publication.
"Tar reforming in biomass gasification gas cleaning".

The optimistic exhibition focuses on the future, asking how design challenges the present and shapes things to come. Enter and Encounter is a joint exhibition produced by Design Museum Finland and the Finnish Association of Designers Ornamo, featuring contemporary design after Helsinki’s Design Capital Year of 2012. Aalto University's course Design for Government is nominated to take part in the exhibition!

Create new opportunities for companies, individuals and institutions alike. The camp is a part of Sino Finnish 100 Challenge. Sino Finnish 100 Challenge – a new way of doing is the main event of the Finland 100 programme in China.The Challenge creates preconditions for utilising Finnish know-how in solving challenges in China. It also promotes and enables export opportunities within Chinese stakeholders. The Challenge is organised by Radical Design Week Association (RDWA) with Finnish and Chinese partners.
Title of the dissertation is: Event Processing Using Semantic Web Technologies Mikko Rinne, M.Sc.(Tech.), will defend the dissertation "Event Processing Using Semantic Web Technologies"  on 1 September 2017 at 12 noon in Aalto University School of Science, lecture hall T2, Konemiehentie 2, Espoo.
