Makes more young people want to become engineers
Tekniksprånget is a national internship program aiming to get more young people to want to become engineers. Industrivärden and several of our portfolio companies participate in the internship program. The program is run by the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences on behalf of the government in collaboration with enterprise. 50% of the participants are young women. The internship program lasts for four months and after the program, 80% state that they want to become engineers.
Tekniksprånget is an important initiative to secure the skills that Sweden needs, both now and in the future. There is a large shortage of engineers and this initiative contributes into that more youth people can think of educating themselves in the profession. This is of utmost importance for Industrivärden and our portfolio companies to secure our future skills supply.
Industrivärden has offered 1191 youth internships since 2013.
