He has been the Head of the ITM School since 2013. By the end of February Jan Wikander took the decision to leave this mission and retire in June. 

- Apart from the very fun and inspiring work as the ITM Head of School and as a Professor of KTH, I have many other interests which have not received the attention they deserve, says Jan. I have now decided to spend more time on those as retired. I am still supervising a few doctoral students and will continue this for some time on a limited part-time arrangement.

On June 30, Jan will leave his assignment as Head of the School. KTH's President Sigbritt Karlsson is informed and will start the recruitment process to replace him as soon as possible. In October 2019 the President hopes to have a new Head of the School to present. In the meantime the principle is that the vice head of School takes over on a temporary assignment, and we are awaiting a President’s decision on this.
