Courses by the Environment and Security unit

Within the Environment and Security unit, there are some courses provided for employees, with the aim of facilitating and ensuring that KI offers a safe and secure work environment.

The security covers both physical and local security.

We offer courses in the following areas:


The course is given once in the autumn in Solna (english) and once in the spring in Flemmingsberg (swedish). The course aims at providing basic knowledge about biosecurity and addresses all KI who work with, or will work in the future with microorganisms, genetically modified microorganisms and cells as well as human test materials. No specific prerequisites are required.

Notification will be made by mail to



Fire safety training has been procured in order to be able to offer the number of courses needed to meet KI’s needs. From autumn 2017, the Environment and Security Unit has centrally organized several courses that can be booked for you as a KI employee. You are responsible for your own booking/cancellation of the course date for "Basic Fire Education", paid by the Environment and Security Unit.

Information security

During the spring of 2019 KI started a new information security awareness program that replaced the previous e-learning. The new program will consist of multiple short lessons that are sent to your e-mail periodically. The lessons only take 2 - 5 minutes to complete and cover a number of different topics.
