SSES is a global platform for interdisciplinary education. Throughout our twenty-year history we have been elevating minds, generating ventures, forging connections and inspiring new ways of thinking. Today, we are a global network of silo-busters, system-thinkers and changemakers that work to question the taken for granted and strive towards a better future.
From the cutting-edge of higher education we provide free of charge courses, experiences and incubation for students and alumni of Stockholm’s top six universities: Karolinska Institutet (KI), the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design (Konstfack), the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE), Stockholm University (SU) and the Royal College of Music (KMH).
At the nexus of action, diversity and imagination, we have been the role model for collaborative initiatives, within universities and across disciplines.
The Royal College of Music in Stockholm educates musicians and music teachers at the highest international level. KMH traces its roots back to 1771, and has recently moved into a modern campus area—the music college of the future. They preserve our musical heritage, and at the same time they are constantly developing.
Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design is Sweden’s biggest and oldest artistic, public university. 900 students attend the educations that range from art teacher training, a curator program to fine arts and furniture design.
Karolinska Institutet (KI) is one of the world’s foremost medical universities. Karolinska’s vision is to make a significant contribution to the improvement of human health; their mission is to conduct research and education and to interact with the community.
With over 14,500 students and 1,700 postgraduate students, The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) is Sweden’s largest technological university. The Institute conducts education and research across a broad spectrum – from natural science to all branches of technology.
