Objectives 2016-2020: 

  • In collaboration with new and existing partners, stakeholders and students, KTH shall work to contribute to sustainable development of society.
  • A stronger picture of KTH as a leading technical university in sustainable development shall be conveyed through communication, dialogue and interaction with the surrounding community.

Collaboration strengthens the quality of research and education for sustainable development. KTH shall work with partners that contribute to sustainable development and involve students in KTH's work for sustainable development. KTH shall develop a strategy for how the brand should be associated with sustainable development. This includes increasing the visibility of KTH and our societal impact in relation to sustainable development. Marketing of KTH’s educational programs should emphasize that with an engineering education one can directly contribute to a sustainable development of society. KTH's sustainability work must be visible on KTH’s homepage ( ).


Internal and external collaboration is central in the process for sustainable development. KTH’s reputation makes the university attractive as a partner in the area of sustainability. KTH accepts and shows social responsibility through external and visible activities in the areas of the environment and sustainable development. Activities such as projects and seminars have been conducted by and for students.
In addition to KTH’s strategic partners, KTH has other organized collaborations which include other companies, government agencies, universities and organizations.


Quantitative indicators of the number of press releases, articles on the web and similar related to KTH and sustainable development and visibility in the media is monitored. KTH’s collaborations linked to sustainable development are analyzed and monitored. The number of adjunct professors, affiliated faculty and industry doctoral students with sustainability profiles is monitored. Student projects and student collaborations are followed up. Follow-up of how the outside world perceives the KTH brand in relation to sustainable development is to be followed-up. New indicators for monitoring/ follow-up may also be relevant.
