News, press and media
As a public university, Karolinska Institutet has both an obligation and a wish to inform the outside world about our research and education. Contacts with journalists are an important part of this work, but equally important is our own news channels for exampel at ki.se. Here we present useful information about press releases, news articles, and media contacts when you work at KI.
Contact the Communications and Public Relations Office
The Press Office can be reached on +46 (0)8-524 860 77 or email@example.com. Regular opening hours are 09:00-20:00 CET on weekdays, 09:00-17:00 CET on weekends, closed on Christmas, New Year, Easter and Midsummer. July 4th – 31st 2022, the Press Office is open 9-17 CET weekdays only.
The news editor can be reached on firstname.lastname@example.org during office hours.
Please note that the Communications Office is short-staffed during the Swedish vacation period. This means that we have limited resources to help researchers with news and press releases. We ask for your consideration.
