KI Alumni Homecoming Day 2023

In the spirit of collaboration, friendship, research and education, the KI Alumni Office will be hosting an Alumni Homecoming Day on 13 May 2023. We're building for the future and we hope that as many alumni as possible will be able to join us this year, as we establish what will surely become an annual alumni day at Karolinska Institutet. So please join us and be part of a diverse program with many opportunities to connect with KI again.

Over the years, Karolinska Institutet has activated and engaged with our alumni from both academia as well as research. The value of a strong, professional and global alumni network is significant for a university such as KI and at the alumni office we're always dedicated to increasing that value, creating more opportunities for our students and researchers to be a part of that collaboration. We offer the possibility to keep in touch and create new connections within a network built on engagement and pride. A context within which we promote the competence, development, expertise and success  of our alumni.


On May 13th 2023 we will celebrate our alumni and all their contributions through a joint alumni day, where anyone who was once active at KI, students as well as researchers or employees in some other form, can come back to campus and let the alumni spirit rule the day through guided tours, presentations and other activities.

In the evening we will be hosting a party for alumni at the Nobel Prize Museum in the middle of Old Town, an evening where we let science, research and education be the backdrop as we network, and socialize with old and new friends.

This page will be the informational hub for the alumni day and when the program is official, this is where you'll find the links to sign up for each respective activity. Until then we'll keep information brief and general, but if you have any questions, requests or suggestions with regards to the alumni day, you are more than welcome to contact us at



The program for the KI Alumni Homecoming Day 2023 will be continuously updated during April, and links to sign up for specific events will be published with time to spare, but the program might be subject to additions, changes and replacements up until signup is open to participants.

Please note that registration beforehand is required for all events during the KI Alumni Homecoming Day 2023.
