New Programme Director!
After two learningful years with the Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability programme at Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH), this summer I will be leaving to pursue new opportunities, including getting married later this year! I have enjoyed my experience here immensely and would like to thank all those who were a part of it.
In line with my departure, I am pleased to announce that Sophie Hallstedt will be the new Programme Director as of August 1, 2008. Sophie brings many years of experience in research and application of strategic sustainable development concepts, and is currently in the final stages of completing her doctoral dissertation on A Foundation of Sustainable Product Development. We are extremely happy that Sophie has accepted this role and look forward to even greater things as our programme continues to evolve.
As Sophie will continue to lead research projects in sustainable product innovation, we will be seeking additional staff to support the ongoing development and delivery of the programme. These people will work closely with Sophie to lead and provide guidance to a small team dedicated to providing a unique learning experience. Please look on the BTH website for further information.
Over the next few months I will be working with Sophie and our team to prepare for the upcoming academic year, which we expect to be the best ever. We are looking forward to the graduation of the Class of 2008 and welcoming the Class of 2009 to Karlskrona, Sweden!
