Secondary occupations

In the public sector in general and in the exercise of official authority in particular, it is important that the public have intact confidence in the university as an authority and in individual teachers/officials.

KI:s duties include research, education and providing information about its activities and how scientific knowledge can be applied. In addition to its interest in openness and freedom in the research, the public also has a highly legitimate interest in the research that is conducted being able to be translated into different kinds of benefit. To be able to accomplish this, KI needs to interact with both trade and industry and society at large.

KI has a positive attitude to employees accepting assignments and being involved in activities outside Ki, within their respective fields of competence, provided that this takes place by mutual agreement and in accordance with the applicable regulatory framework. KI has drawn up new rules that are intended to facilitate handling of the regulatory framework.

Note that the information in the notification of a secondary occupation is treated in accordance with the GDPR.

E-learning on secondary occupations at KI

The individual employee bears the primary responsibility for assessing whether a secondary occupation (i.e. the exercise of the secondary occupation) is compatible with the law and the Regulation. This means that the employee is assumed to have basic knowledge of which secondary activities may be inappropriate.

For help and support, KI has developed an e-learning programme on secondary occupations. You can access the training at the bottom of this page and by logging in with your KI ID. You can take the training at your own pace and as often as you like. 

Good luck!
