NAVET Kick off
We invite you to attend the kick off for the KTH Center NAVET!
The vision of NAVET is that Sweden should have a leading position in the intersectional area Art, Technology and Design, with a practical and critical approach that stimulates research, innovation, creativity, and the development of a sustainable society. NAVET wants to put the human in the centre, which also implies to question what the human is in an age of technology.
