Q. What happens if a Digital Futures faculty member moves between KTH, SU, or RISE?
A. The faculty member keeps his/her Digital Futures faculty member status, as long as the eligibility is still fulfilled.

Q. How should projects funded by Digital Futures be acknowledged in published papers?
A. The preferable and encouraged way is that Digital Futures faculty members and their group members use Digital Futures as a second affiliation. Alternatively, Digital Futures can also be mentioned in the acknowledgement, but the latter is not necessary if Digital Futures is given as a second affiliation of the authors.

Examples below: 

  • If you are KTH affiliated, you can write, e.g., “Anna Andersson, EECS and Digital Futures, KTH Royal Institute of Technology”.
  • If you are at Stockholm University or RISE, you can write Digital Futures as a second affiliation, e.g., “Frank Smith, Stockholm University and Digital Futures”.
  • If you also mention Digital Futures in the acknowledgement in a paper, you can for instance write “This work was in part financially supported by Digital Futures”.

Q. Is it possible to resign as a Digital Futures faculty member or as alumni?
A. Yes, of course. Simply send an email to info@digitalfutures.kth.se.

Q. How do I book a meeting room at the Digital Futures hub?
