Today, we proudly present one of our longest-standing sponsors – Scania, who have now been supporting our team for more than 10 years.
A few words about Scania:
Scania is a world-leading provider of transport solutions committed to a better tomorrow. Our purpose is to drive the shift towards sustainable transport systems. The transport industry is changing fast, and to drive the shift towards cleaner, safer and smarter solutions, we need to be able to innovate quickly. By combining our core strengths – such as Scania’s modular platform – with new ways of working, we’re rapidly developing the ideas and technologies that will shape tomorrow’s transport system. By harnessing the power of innovation, we are finding answers to some of our most urgent sustainability challenges, from urban mobility to climate change. At the same time, technologies such as electrification and automation are radically re-shaping our business, creating exciting new opportunities and business models
This is how we work together:
In our collaboration with KTH FS we invite team members to Scania for a partner day every year. We fill the day with inspirational lectures, go-and-see and mingle with former KTH FS team members who are now working at Scania. The team members are involved in the planning of the partner day so that they can influence the content of the program.
When the team members are building the car, Scania also invites team members to come to Scania to get help with different types of testing. It is beneficial for the team members to be on-site at Scania to really feel involved in the process. Recently we also have discussed different possibilities of having the team use our facilities to test drive their car.
Scania offers team members to take part of a mentorship where Scania employees act as mentors to the team members. The mentorship has evolved over the years of collaboration and this will be the 4th year it is offered. During the mentorship, the group of mentors and mentees can exchange knowledge and get the chance to set up individual goals that they want to achieve.
Here is what KTH FS team members and Scania employees say about the cooperation:
