We live in challenging times regarding politics, the environment, the economy, ongoing wars and unequal conditions in our societies. All these factors also affect the possibility of mobility for university students and staff. Please join us in this upcoming staff week at KTH, where we will discuss these topics from different perspectives and experiences.

During this week in Stockholm, you will meet colleagues from universities worldwide. You will also have the opportunity to meet KTH students at our annual KTH Global Education Fair, which promotes studies abroad.

The cost for this staff week is 100 Euro per participant, which covers lunches for four days, refreshments (coffee/tea), welcome dinner and the optional sightseeing tour on Friday.
