A coordinated and efficient collection plan

KTH is assisting the healthcare system in a variety of ways. In order to facilitate help to the beneficiaries, KTH is coordinating its relief efforts. 

KTH's Deputy President Mikael Östling  is responsible for this coordination, managed by Christina Zander , Head of administration at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

Collection put on pause

Due to a decreased demand for protective equipment KTH has put the collection on pause. KTH has thanks to dedicated faculty and private initiatives been able to collect, produce and send a great number of equipment to many health care providers. If the demand for protective equipment changed KTH will resume the collection and production again.

Please report any demand for protective equipment and questions to Christina Zander
