"We had ten very strong candidates, our final choice fell on Charlotte Wiberg based on the requirements profile we set", says President Stefan Bengtsson.
“Charlotte has wide management experience and a competence profile that fits well for a First Vice President in the development phase that Chalmers is in”.
As First Vice President, Charlotte Wiberg will work together with the President and Vice Presidents on many different issues. She will have a special responsibility for postgraduate education, digitalisation issues and the coordination of gender equality.
In connection with her appointment, the tasks in the President’s group will change somewhat. Charlotte Wiberg takes over the responsibility for Chalmers' doctoral education from Anders Palmqvist, who recently was reappointed, and in addition to the research issues also will be responsible for the Areas of Advance and the Excellence Initiative.
"I am of course both happy and honoured to receive this trust", says Charlotte Wiberg. "Chalmers has a strong brand, international prominence, and fantastic employees. We have strong research and attractive education. I will assist the President and hope to contribute with new perspectives for continued strong development. Chalmers has the motto Avancez – so I say as I often do: forward together!"
