Progress in the area of discrimination but fewer responses in total and continued indications that many are experiencing stress. These are some of the results from the 2018 employee survey at KTH.

There is a greater than expected demand for Swedish language for foreign students at KTH, according to Rebecca Hincks and Björn Kjellgren's investigation.
