My name is Nico Albrecht and I handle the position of Project Incubation with EWB KTH.
I am studying in the KTH Master’s program of Production Engineering and Management. I am a people person and like to spend time with my friends and nice people around me. Furthermore, I am part of the International Reception team Spring 2020, Student Nobel Night Cap 2019 and the KTH newspaper Osqledaren.
Why did you choose to get involved with EWB?
As engineers in education, we are far away from the industrial world from time to time and sometimes even further away from real life in other parts of the world. With our knowledge, we can contribute to something great and create something good in the world, something that matters. That’s what EWB for me is about. By working in a team of interesting, inspiring and nice people, it is an incredibly enriching experience, I had the great opportunity to gain in Germany and now here at KTH.
What does team Project Incubation do? Project Incubation is the first part of a project idea proposal in the EWB KTH scope. We draft, outline and develop a rough idea into a solid project proposal, connecting the dots to the local authorities and partners, doing feasibility studies and presenting recommendations as well as guiding directions for the continuation of the project.
