Karolinska Institutet 2.0 – Learning for the Future

At the moment, Max is employed at Karolinska Institutet, the biggest medical university in Sweden. He works there on project KI 2.0.

The Swedish government has decided that entrepreneurship needs to be encouraged in healthcare education. The aim of the project is to develop a strategy for implementation of entrepreneurship in the education at Karolinska Institutet. The objective is to introduce elements of entrepreneurship in all study programmes, to provide students with skills for their future career, adapted to the developments taking place in the industry. The practical work within the project is based on interactive workshops with representatives from management of the study program, active teachers, and students as well as union and industry representatives.


 Max’s role in the project focuses on the implementation phase of the project. He designs workshops for teachers to co-design tools for entrepreneurial learning and teaching. He designs interdisciplinary workshops and events. One of the tangible results of this project will take the shape of a toolbox for entrepreneurial teaching and learning.

The project has taken on a process that is familiar to that used in design processes. Max develops an overall model for this process so that it can be used in other strategic projects at Karolinska Institutet.
