After the merger of KTH’s Support Services – what happens now?

On January 1, 2023, CBH’s administration merged with the services at the other schools and the University Administration. CBH’s administration is now called the Department for Support Services CBH. However, according to CBH’s Head of Administration Marie Larson, the fusion should not entail any noticeable changes for those working at CBH.

“The organizational transition in itself should not be noticed, we change the names of our organizational units within the administration and have to update our systems, in the same way as when we became CBH,” says Marie Larson.

"It feels natural to step in"

Since the turn of the year, Amelie Eriksson Karlström is new Acting Head of School for CBH, since former Head of School Mikael Lindström became Deputy President for KTH.

”It feels good. I think Micke was very good as Head of School and now that this situation has arisen it feels natural to step in."

"Our success is based on scientific curiosity"

12 research groups with different focus work at the Department of Gene Technology. The common denominator is their way of working with method development, mainly in medical problems.

”One of the reasons for us being a top department is that we ourselves decide what we are going to research," says Peter Savolainen, Head of Deparment at Gene technology.

The road to a joint support services

She support services at the schools and the University Administration (GVS) will merge to form a new organisation from 1 January 2023. The goal is high quality support and efficiency that frees up teachers' and researchers' time and contributes to KTH's competitiveness.
