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.

Extensive amendments to the Swedish Protective Security Act - increased obligations and a comprehensive sanctions system

Extensive amendments to the Swedish Protective Security, which include increased obligations for operators of security-sensitive activities and a comprehensive sanctions system, are proposed to enter into force on 1 December 2021. These changes, which were presented in a Government bill of 18 March 2021, generate new and far-reaching obligations for many companies, especially in view of the severe sanctions that may be imposed if the obligations are not complied with.
