Impact Gala 2020: Collaborate. Connect. Collectively.

The IDBM community warmly invites you to IDBM Impact 2020, a unique online webinar which marks the focal point of the academic year for students of the International Design Business Management (IDBM) Programme.

IDBM Impact is typically held as an afternoon collaborative conference, but due to current circumstances, we have needed to adapt. Thus, we have created an interactive online conference that will provide inspiration, creativity, and excitement about what our future might look like when we can be together again.

Over the course of 6 months; design, business and engineering students have been working on projects in collaboration with industry leaders, dynamic startups and engaged non-profit organizations to develop innovative and socially-impactful concepts.

During the webinar, you will have the opportunity to participate in thought-provoking discussions and discover inspiring innovation project pitches. Get a glimpse of what transdisciplinary collaboration can achieve at this year's IDBM impact!


IDBM Impact is organized and hosted by IDBM Klubi. Everyone interested in learning about transdisciplinary collaboration and its impact on our future is welcome. The event is the conclusion of the academic year for IDBM students at Aalto University and provides a platform to come together, connect, and exchange ideas with alumni, industry experts, and faculty.
