Meetings and Events
Every year KTH organises a large number of meetings and events on campus. Events of various kind and smaller conferences and congresses are held throughout the year. Larger conferences and congresses are mainly held during the summer months. These meetings have KTH as a host and are aimed at different target groups. The following pages will provide you with information on how you can obtain help to invite a congress to KTH, what you should keep in mind during the planning process and the special conditions that apply when you organise meetings at KTH.
An event is a channel for live communication. An experience in the form of an event that is carried out against set goals and where the content and structure have been developed for a suitable target group. Examples of events held at KTH on a regular basis are inaugurations, open lectures, platform days, KTH Global etc.
Conference and congress
Conferences organised at KTH are based on an academic content and are aimed at a specific target group of relevance to the subject. Conferences and congresses often mix plenary sessions with smaller workshops, are largely based on the participants' own research and often include a variety of exhibitions. Objectives for academic conferences and congresses often include; creating engaging discussions, problem solving and the generation of new facts.
