Personal exchange programme
The interchange of people between KTH and the outside world is an important element in the KTH collaboration model. A personal exchange means that you, as an employee of a company, institution or organisation, spend part of your working time at KTH or that a KTH researcher or lecturer spends time at the company where you work. This combining of careers is of great value to KTH and the collaborative partner. KTH offers three levels of personal exchanges: Adjunct Professor, affiliated faculty and the industrial doctorate.
