Engagement, meaningfulness and the need for cooperation.

Happy people meeting and the importance of a free lunch. This week we brought together 150 students from Stockholm University and KTH with representatives from Ericsson and IBM to discuss the possibilities of working in northern Europe’s largest IT hub.

Great introductions for new students at Campus Kista

Finally, back from the shutdown that came along with the pandemic, today was the first joint activity between the student unions at Stockholm University (DISK) and KTH (IN-sektionen) in years. Martin  Berggren from DISK explained the event as the beginning of a new chapter and the wish to show students all that is Kista. On the outside and inside. Representing 380 000 employees wordwide and with over 250 years of company history together, Evelina Pärnerud of IBM and Anders Österlund of Ericsson shared the importance of good student relations and opened their doors, and networks, for students to reach out and visit.

-It has been great to meet so many students during these welcome weeks starting up the semester, says Mikaela Färnqvist, Community Manager at Kista Science City. Being able to bring together the knowledge and competence from the companies here in Kista Science City with the fresh eyes and optimism from new students.

There is currently a great need for new talents in many companies, and today’s activity is the result of a dialogue during the spring with the student organizations and business in Kista. By participating in this kind of joint activities both scaleups, SME’s and larger corporations can easy and effective get in touch with students. During the fall we will see more examples on activities between the business and student community. Study visits, lunches or perhaps a lunch jog.

-It is all about people and finding the connections that matter, Mikaela continues, that is one of the reasons why it is so much fun working with community. To shape the future, we need new tech and new thinking. And these components exist here in Kista. And we have the position to bring them together.

Do you with to be part of our next student activity? Reach out to Mikaela.
