The team is growing! And to be able to handle our European Regional development funded project “Frontrunners for sustainable Innovation”, we decided to expand our team with a Project Leader.

Karin has a background as coordinator at Concord Sweden focusing on Agenda 2030 and working for the United Nations as advisor and manager stationed at Vietnam and Thailand.

Her latest assignment was at Tillväxtverket (The Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth). At Tillväxtverket Karin has been working with supporting sustainable solutions to combat environmental challenges and bring new businesses to emerging markets.

We asked Karin 9 quick questions to get to know here better and here is her answers!

  3. Which movie did you last see?  
    • Managed to stay awake for most of it.
  4. How should one proceed if they want to impress you?
    • I’m always impressed and inspired by people who pursue their dreams and passions. Or just bring chocolates…
  5. If the end of the world was around the corner, how would you spend your last time in life?
