KTH Royal Institute of Technology, together with the City of Stockholm and the Embassy of Sweden in Washington, invites you to an event exploring societal challenges and the value of partnerships.

How do you create and sustain great partnerships?

The Stockholm model focuses on how to create sustainable impact for society through collaboration. We aim to showcase how links between cities, local government, academia and the private sector create strong foundations for societal development.

We will share our experiences with you, and we look forward to an interactive discussion about various topics, including: cities as testbeds; the new generation of AI in medical research; co-creation of sustainable cities of the future; and AI and new technologies in the built environment.

This two day engagement will involve presentations and discussions of new and established collaborations, as well as in depth analysis and data. Our aim with this event is to inspire and to further deepen relationships between key stakeholders in Sweden and the United States.
