University of Eastern Finland (UEF) was formed in 2010 merging previously independent universities of Kuopio and Joensuu. At the former University of Kuopio, atmospheric aerosol research dates back to the earliest years of the university, when the emphasis was on the atmospheric hygiene and health effects of air pollution both to humans and ecosystems. Since then, atmospheric aerosol reserach has expanded to cover areas of cloud microphysics, global climate effects, remote sensing of aerosols and clouds, and new measurement techniques, just to mention few examples. In this talk I will give an overview of active research areas and recent results of atmospheric aerosol research at the UEF, concentrating on the research conducted at the Aerosol Physics Group at the Department of Applied Physics (professors Laaksonen, Lehtinen and Virtanen). I will also shortly discuss on the related education at the UEF.
