KTH Partner Visit in September

We are delighted to welcome your university representatives to KTH Partner Visit between September 19 and 21, 2019! This is an opportunity to deepen the relations between our institutions and also to get to know participants from other universities. You will be able to learn more about KTH and meet with staff that might be of interest to you. As this event is a cooperation between KTH, Karolinska Institutet and Stockholm University, there will be several occasions to meet visitors also to these institutions. And as the EAIE conference is taking place in Finland this year, we find it a very good reason to meet you all on our grounds in September, we look forward to seeing you in Stockholm!
