Hedvig Ahlgren – Construction Technique

Hedvig Ahlgren is studying for her MSc in integrated product design at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.


She did her summer internship project with the Atlas Copco Construction Technique business area. The Construction Technique facility in Kalmar is considered the innovation center of its division, and management is now aiming at making it even more innovative and to be best practice within the Group in designing new products all the way to production.

Hedvig’s summer project was based in Antwerp in Belgium at the site of another Atlas Copco innovation center, where she performed a theoretical study on innovation management and execution of the design and development process, as well as identified critical key success factors in the literature. Her findings will be used when further developing the Kalmar innovation center.
