Nelly Sahlstrand

Communications Officer

I work as a Communications Officer for Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP). WASP is by far Sweden's largest individual research Program.

Communications for WASP

I belong to the unit for Research Communications and Media Relations at the Communications and Marketing Division on LiU and are positioned on WASP.

As a Communications Officer for WASP, I work both deeply and broadly with the Program's internal and external communication. The internal work involves, among other things, writing for the internal website, communication follow-up of WASP and supporting researchers with communication efforts. The external work involves everything from video production, interviewing researchers for WASP's social media channels and/or external website, media management and press releases to ongoing strategic development of WASP's proactive and reactive communication. 

About WASP

The ambition of WASP is to advance Sweden into an internationally recognized and leading position in the areas of artifical intelligence, autonomous systems and software for the benefit of Swedish society and industry.

  • Launched in 2015 and will continue at least until 2031
  • Funding in total 6.2 billion SEK - 4.9 from Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation
  • 80 companies and organizations engaged in the program
