Hej Everyone I decided to start an alumni profile series for this blog. I’ve had a lot of questions from readers about the options for Bioentrepreneurship graduates and thought it would be cool to share the experiences of some of our alumni. I will try cover all industries within life science. And, if there are any… Read More Bioentrepreneurship Alumni Profile: Pharmaceutical industry
If you are applying for the Master’s in Bioentrepreneurship, you probably know that we do two practical placements (PP1 and PP2) as well as complete our Master’s thesis in a company setting. However, the programme has aspects of real-life learning throughout our various courses. My current course, Product Development in the Biomedical Industry is the largest and… Read More Bioentrepreneurship links with industry: guest lecturers and study visits
Two months ago, I was sat in Arlanda airport on my way home for Christmas with one thing on my mind- food 🙂 Of course I looked forward to seeing family and friends! But mostly, I just wanted to overindulge in some British food. Roast Dinner with Yorkshire puddings, pigs in blankets, crumpets with butter, bacon… Read More Delicious Swedish food traditions everyone should get on board with.

At the beginning of the semester, all the digital ambassadors talked about the number one things we wanted to do whilst in Sweden. Visit Lappland was on most people’s list. Not surprising since a visit to Lappland means you could meet Santa Claus and/or pretend to be Princess Elsa for the day 🙂 For those… Read More 6 reasons you should visit Lappland this winter.
Innovation is one of those buzz words that everyone knows but can never agree on a definition. If you ask Google you will get a hundreds million of results. If you ask your friends (like I did) you will probably get a combination of ‘iPhones’, ‘Uber’ or just ‘Steve Jobs’. Entrepreneurship sits hand in hand… Read More Innovation Day
When I first arrived at KI, one of the first events we were invited to was the Alumni Homecoming Day organised by BEACON. I sat down with one of the founders, Christopher Domnick to talk about the event and how it got started…. First of all, where does the name BEACON come from? BEACON stands… Read More Interview with alumnus: On starting an alumni association during the master’s thesis (and why it was worth it)
In the south of Stockholm there is an overgrown industrial estate with a remarkable twist. It’s home to one of Europe’s largest open air street art/graffiti exhibits. It seems a bit out of place in organised Stockholm where there is usually a zero tolerance of graffiti. However Snösätra Industriområde has around 4.5km of painted walls… Read More Alternative Stockholm: Street Art and organised anarchy
Sweden is expensive. All students here know this, and if you haven’t experienced the financial sting firsthand, you will most definitely once you arrive. However, there is good news for any travel junkies, you can get super cheap tickets to travel all throughout the Nordic Region. Stockholm is built on 14 different islands and historically… Read More Cruise to Helsinki (and how you can travel the Nordic region for less than a pair of jeans)
I’ve had lots of responses when I tell people I study Bioentrepreneurship; ranging from confusion to mild skepticism. Its hard to explain what it is we actually do all day. And that’s because there is no one answer! Bioentrepreneurship means different things to different people, it all depends on who you ask. Luckily our first… Read More The burning question: What actually is Bioentrepreneurship? (hint: sometimes it involves lots of arts and crafts)
