Vinge praised during the king's visit to Angered

May 21, 2015

On Monday, Vinge’s Olof Jisland and Anders Falkeby attended an award ceremony at Angered upper secondary school where, in front of a large gathering of politicians, representatives from trade and industry and students, King Carl XVI Gustav awarded the King’s Foundation of Young Leadership scholarship, the “Compass Card”.

The recipient of the scholarship was Pera Elio Serti who works as a social studies teacher at the school. Unfortunately, as she is in the final stages of her pregnancy and was thus unable to attend the Royal Palace in order to receive the scholarship, the King decided that he would attend the school instead.

Petra Elio Serti is one of the school’s former pupils and works with, amongst other things, the so-called Angered Challenge where Vinge is one of the co-operating partners. The Angered Challenge is the name for an umbrella project which brings together all of the school’s contacts within trade and industry for the benefit of students and helps to create ties between the school and the private and public sectors. During the award ceremony, a seminar was held on how schools/academia, enterprise and society in general can co-operate in order to improve the situation for, and integration of, alienated pupils into society.  

Vinge received a great deal of praise for its diversity project which is now in its thirteenth year. The diversity project is entitled “Working Life on Equal Terms – A Diversity Project” and is run in close co-operation between Vinge and Ross Tensta and St. Bovids upper secondary schools in Stockholm, Angered upper secondary school in Gothenburg and Malmö Borgarskola in Malmö. The main feature of the diversity project is to offer, through close co-operation with the relevant upper secondary schools, a unique package to all of the pupils at these schools consisting of, amongst other things, education and presentations as well as the possibility to apply for scholarships and summer internships at Vinge.

European Commission provides sanctions compliance guidance

The European Commission has recently issued three opinions regarding the interpretation of asset freeze provisions in certain sanctions legislation pertaining to Central African Republic, Ukraine, Libya and Syria. The opinions are also of relevance for other sanctions regimes which provide for the same or similar restrictions. Therefore, their practical relevance goes far beyond the sanctions regimes in the context of which they were issued and they therefore provide for helpful guidance regarding the required thresholds for sanctions compliance generally.
