Third stream activities

Studenter i biblioteket vid Södertörns högskola.These pages provide information about the areas of the university's activities that are focused on third stream activities that involve companies, public authorities and organisations. Södertörn University's alumni are also an important part of this work.

The university's third stream activities are aimed at creating experience and knowledge exchanges between students and researchers and external companies, public authorities and organisations. The interaction between theory and practice creates more routes to new knowledge and innovation, which can be transformed into practical applications that benefit individuals and society in a variety of ways.
