P4 Stockholm covers south Stockholm from Södertörn University

Since September last year, Swedish Radio station SR P4 Stockholm has had a local editorial team based at Södertörn University. The initiative is part of the station’s comprehensive local news coverage in the region. It also creates opportunities for educational co-operation with journalism training at the university.

“We had a P4 reporter share tips and advice with students on the journalism course for academics, which the students really appreciated,” says Carl-Oscar Alsén, a tutor in radio broadcasting at Södertörns University.

He now hopes that the seminar can herald deeper co-operation between Södertörns University and Swedish Radio, he says.
“Perhaps we can create more workshops or similar activities. We haven’t sat down and discussed this as yet, but we hope to do so,” says Alsén.

P4 reporter Johanna Sjöqvist Harland, who gave the seminar, graduated from Södertörn University herself and believes the course gave her career an excellent grounding.
“It was a fun way of sharing my knowledge with students. One of the things I went into were the different positions on an editorial team such as reporter, news person, producer and presenter,” she says.

P4 Stockholm launched its local editorial initiative in 2015 with, among other things, having a reporter based in Kista, (north of Stockholm). Since autumn 2019, reporters have been based in Flemingsberg, Husby and Södertälje.

“Soon we can meet again IRL”

Since the Covid outbreak, our work has been characterised by video meetings, especially in our various focus groups. Success has exceeded expectations, thanks to the fact that the approximately 70 people who are involved in the groups had time to get to know one other and the issues even before the pandemic. But we are really looking forward to being able to meet again IRL, and hopefully soon – it is so much more enjoyable!

XNK Therapeutics lays the groundwork for GMP facility in Flemingsberg

"Flemingsberg is the place in the world you want to be if you work with NK cells. There is a strong research facility here with a world-leading research group and proximity to a clinic that really knows NK cells. We recently started the construction of a new GMP facility with an associated research laboratory of 350 square meters for our NK cell therapy. The new facility is being built at Novum in Flemingsberg and, once the facility is completed in 2022, it will give us complete control over the entire development chain."
