I would like to take this opportunity to say some final words during my last hour as chairperson for this chapter.

It has been a fantastic year, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be the chairperson of this wonderful chapter during this period!

We have managed to do a lot of changes to the structure of how the chapter works, and I am confident that those changes will help improve the chapter overall.

In less than an hour, the new academic year starts with a new board and a new chairperson, Emma Riese. It is going to be a great year!

So, I would like to say thank you for this past year to everyone involved in the chapter. It has been an exciting ride!

Over and out,
Robin Palmberg

The results are in!

Yesterday, we held elections in the chapter hall for the coming academic year and here are the results!

Emma Riese

Chairperson

2019-2020

Let us introduce our new Chairperson, Emma Riese! Emma has previously been a member of the board and has actively represented the PhD students in the Education Committee (Utbildningsutskottet) at KTH. We believe Emma will do a great job in leading the PhD Chapter Board and congratulate her on the electoral win!

There were four more board members elected. Two of these are elected for the coming academic year and two are by-elected for the fall as those positions will be elected during the fall because of the board reform issued by the resigning board.
