Time for some time off

We are approaching Christmas and New Year’s Eve and I take the opportunity thank all ITM employees, students and scholarship fellows for all the strong engagement and valuable contributions during 2016. My hope is that the we all during the coming two weeks find enough time to relax, to practice our hobbies and to enjoy being with families and friends.

The annual ITM leaders’ conference which gathers almost all staff members having a management role within ITM takes place on January 11-12. Except fostering improved leadership, the ambition with the 2017 conference is to initiate the strategic work towards our next development plan. Our new president, Sigbritt Karlsson, has announced that the work with the next KTH development plan will start early 2017. It is important that we are well prepared to contribute to this work, and to deliver constructive criticism when necessary. The conference will make use of some background material which might serve as an inspiration, but also as external contexts that we need to consider when formulating our strategic plans. Here I would like to share one piece of this background material, namely the KTH Utbildningskatalog 2026/2027 .

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
