ITM transitions to remote operations in light of Coronavirus

Published Mar 17, 2020

The KTH guidelines ( have been updated in light of new recommendations from the Swedish Public Health Authority (Folkhälsomyndigheten). New, more restrictive measurement are now required in order to manage the spread of Coronavirus within the Stockholm region.

Until further notice, you should work from home if possible. If you have duties which you believe need to be carried out at KTH (e.g. critical lab-based work), you should contact your Head of Department/Manager.

We highlight the following consequences: 

We expect that all employees follow the updates on the KTH web:

  • All teaching must be conducted remotely. Contact the Director of Undergraduate studies at your Department if you need further guidance in this regard.
  • All physical meetings must move to digital platforms.
  • KTH closes the access to campus for all students

It is currently not known how long these measures will be needed. We stress that, as far as possible, our normal activities should continue, albeit in a different form than we are used to.

The current situation is clearly unprecedented. We appreciate the cooperation of everyone at ITM so that our teaching and research activities can continue as efficiently as possible until normal operations are resumed. We will update this information based on recommendations from the Swedish authorities continuously.
