Networking & Meetings

As a WISE graduate school participant, there are many excellent opportunities to interact with both industry and other academic institutions to build a strong network of personal connections.

Making valuable contacts

Likewise, for industry and faculty, there are many occasions to connect with some of the sharpest young minds being educated in Sweden.

Premier examples of such activities are the annual WISE Dialogue and Welcome Meeting, as well as study visits to leading Swedish tech companies. We are also frequently inviting external speakers to our graduate school courses and the summer schools to provide an international dimension to the program.

Hands-on industrial collaborations within WISE are enabled by WISE research arenas (WIRAs). A main mission for WISE is to create meeting places for the PhD and Postdoctoral researchers (i.e. Postdocs), their advisors, and industrial partners to discuss research and to identify scientific and sustainability challenges tackled through joint efforts.
