Stretching minds since 1999.

A Community of Curiosity

SSES is a global platform for interdisciplinarity. 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 five 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), and Stockholm University (SU).

At the nexus of action, diversity and imagination, we have been the role model for collaborative initiatives, within universities and across disciplines.
