Reconnect is a project initiated by Aalto University to evaluate the current industrial partnership and collaboration with Nokia and provide recommendations for Future development. The scope covered the various activities occuring between the different departments at Aalto and Nokia.

Through a comprehensive research involving observation, interviews and data analysis across the different Schools, departments and units at Aalto and Nokia, we have categorised our insights across Research, Education, Innovation, Recruitment and Branding. As a conclusion, the project provided recommendations and discusses areas to be improved to enable better collaboration for the future. The final report was distributed across both organisations to validate the need for a change and to initiate transformation processes.

My role has been dual in nature - one to direct the research to obtain the insights across both organisations and lead the project, other as a designer to design, illustrate and present the insights in the right way.
