Aalto University is a newly created university resulting from the merger of three Finnish universities the Helsinki School of Economics, the University of Art and Design and the Helsinki University of Technology – all leading and renowned institutions in their respective fields and in their own right. Aalto University will begin operating in January 2010, and open up a new world of possibilities for multidisciplinary education and research.
Recently Aalto University got its identity, selected after competition, and winning bid triggered a [fierce discussion](https://pingstate.nu/linkit/234526) among members of pingstate.nu, a local forum of graphic designers. Unfortunately this site is in Finnish, so maybe [translate.google.com](https://translate.google.com/translate?prev=hp&hl=en&js=y&u=http%3A%2F%2Fpingstate.nu%2Flinkit%2F234526&sl=fi&tl=en&history_state0=) will do a trick.
