Welcome to the internal pages for employees at the School of Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health (CBH) at KTH. Note that the menu for KTH's overall intranet can be found above in the header.
CBH students call admitted students from all over the world
For the past two weeks, CBH's master's students have been calling newly admitted students from New Zealand to Peru. The goal is to get more students to accept their places at KTH.
"I think it is a valuable opportunity for those who have decided to study at our University to better organize themselves before their arrival and stay in Stockholm. I also think it is exciting that they can receive insights on the programme from someone already enrolled" says Nicolò dall'Acqua.
Hello there, Joakim Lundeberg. You have just been awarded the prestigious ERC Advanced Grant. How does it feel, and what does such a grant mean to you?
"I'm very proud. You compete with many brilliant researchers in Europe. In addition, many people applied for the ERC Advanced Grant this particular corona year, which makes it even more fun to receive. Finally, it is 2.7 million euros that will go to my research for new exciting projects. Which is inspiring of course."
When everyday life is turned upside down and you face numerous new challenges, it can be both difficult and instructional to be a manager. In this series of articles, several KTH managers share their thoughts and experiences about the past year.
"As a program director, the challenge has been to convey information and coordinate activities to meet guidelines. The biggest loss has been not being able to meet the students," says Kerstin Forsberg, director of the master’s programme Chemical Engineering for Energy and Environment.
To facilitate a return to work on campus and prepare the working groups for this, the HR Department/GVS has produced support material for managers and work groups to use. Managers have the opportunity to carry out the exercise together with the working group at a digital workplace meeting.
Under certain circumstances, the period of doctoral studies and employment as a doctoral student may be extended as a result of COVID-19.
