The Department of Communication at Aalto ECON and Communication Studies at the Department of Social Research at the University of Helsinki set in motion the Communicum initiative in late 2010. The aim is to facilitate collaboration between researchers, teachers and students of media and communication at Aalto University and the University of Helsinki. During the process also Aalto TAIK 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 of Helsinki.

In the beginning, a concrete output of Communicum has been the diversification of education through the facilitation of student mobility. In the second stage, researchers of media and communication from the two universities will be facilitated to get in touch with each other and outline possible joint research projects and other forms of co-operation.
