The results are in!

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

Emma Riese



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.

Workshops to Practice Oral Communication in French

Black Haired Woman Singing

Do you want to practice oral communication in French to be able to discuss your research or present it?

Are you a PhD student or researcher at KTH who collaborates with schools or universities in French-speaking countries, or participates in projects in French-speaking environments or other contexts (development cooperation projects, networks, etc.) where using French would be appropriate or qualifying?

We are planning to organise small discussion workshops (probably during lunchtime) to help you to practice oral communication in a professional context.

If you are interested, please contact Nathalie Kirchmeyer
