"A fantastic opportunity that all companies should be interested in"

The IT company Mirror, with operations in Kalix and Luleå, needed help in developing a marketing and communication plan for one of its four business areas. Through the KTP project, the company was matched with Jenny Björnfot, a newly graduated student from the Master of Business Administration program at Luleå University of Technology, who took on the assignment. It was a hit - the project has resulted in a strategic plan for continued development and is transformed into a permanent employment!

Freno Air
"A great opportunity to test the wings"

The Piteå company Freno Air, which develops and is a specialist in air suspension systems and chassis solutions, began its transformation journey a few years ago from being a company where development was done "by hand" in the workshop to working extensively digitally with product development, both design and simulation. Through the KTP project, they have had the opportunity to hire Simon Tornberg, a newly graduated university engineer in mechanical engineering, who has supported the product development work and in the future will be a permanent resource as a designer when he moves to a permanent position at the company.
