From Development plan 2018-2023
"KTH’s organisation as a whole must be characterised by international integration. KTH is an international educational institution where education and research must maintain the very highest standards, not least in order to attract international students, teachers and researchers. Recruitment of students and faculty members must be carried out both nationally and internationally."
