SSE in Almedalen
Almedalen Week has developed into Sweden’s biggest political meeting place which, via democracy and openness, gives everyone who wants to debate social issues the opportunity to take part. SSE is taking active part in a wide range of topics and public debate.
As the yearly gathering of seminars and speeches in Almedalen have steadily grown, so too have the demand for experts and researchers from all of our faculties.
This year will see many of our SSE family members sharing their insights and knowledge in discussions ranging from topics as wide as sustainable pension funds to the geopolitics of Asia-Pacific.
In a new effort to further strengthen SSE’s role in the public debate, President Lars Strannegård and members of the schools external relations team will also be present to participate in events and connect with our SSE community.
With SSE’s unique position in the intersection of academic, public and private life, the melting pot that is Almedalen offers many opportunities to exchange ideas and strike bonds across new sectors.
Since the founding of SSE, close relationships with the business community has been an integral part of our research and education and something that still set us aside as SSE remains in the forefront when it comes to innovative partnerships.
Strengthening Swedish competitiveness has always been at the core of this relationship and together with key opinion leaders and policy makers this is a discussion we look forward to continue in Almedalen.
