Don’t miss anything at KTH Campus 100

Next week 16th – 20th October, KTH Campus at Valhallavägen will celebrate its 100th birthday.

KTH is the cradle of 1/3 of research and education in engineering in Sweden and at the same time proud of its motto “Science and Art“: you must be curious about how these scientists and engineers will celebrate this once-in-a-century monument. Check this post so that you won’t miss anything happening during this special week!

Of course, most of the events will take place at KTH campus, that is the closest to the centre of Stockholm.

During 16th October (Monday) to 20th October (Friday), seminars, exhibitions and guided tours will be held in the classrooms, auditoriums, labs and in the open areas of the campus: literally, science and art will be circulating all around!
