Wednesday 10 February Rector Peter Gudmundson of the Royal Institute
of Technology (KTH) decided that a meeting entitled “Why should

for Boycott of Israel, considered that Rector’s decision is at odds

held as scheduled. The meeting focused largely on the relations between
KTH and Israel Institute of Technology Technion, Haifa, with which KTH
has an agreement about collaboration since 1998. The agreement is about
exchange of students, teachers, research staff and general research
