Applications for the executive group are open

As I mentioned in the introductory lecture, we will form a separate, special group called "the executive group" before the project group formation phase. The project groups will be formed as soon as possible after the last (fourth) seminar (Sept 30), i.e. the project groups will be formed sometime during week 40 (Oct 3-6).

The executive group will not work on a radio-related task/project idea during the project phase, but will instead be a "project management team" and an interface between on the one hand the course management (Daniel and Åke) and on the other hand the students/project groups.

The executive group will perform a number of tasks, some of which are mandatory and some of which are optional:

- Lead the executive group
- Produce the book, "Future of radio"
- Produce the final presentation/show "Future of radio"
- Produce a Future of radio project website (separate from the course website and blogs)
- Document the project (collect all material produced by the groups)
- Marketing/sponsorship/advertising (optional)
- Whatever else you can think about (optional)

It is usually quite popular to be part of the executive group and make use of the practical media technological skill sets that students have acquired over the years. You therefore have to apply for a position in the executive group. Send your application (1 page) to Daniel (pargman at and Åke (aakew at by mail. The deadline is September 29. Please specify what task or tasks (above) you are especially suited for and list relevant experiences and other reasons, arguments and supporting information that you would like to emphasize in your application. The executive group usually consists of 5-6 persons.

Part of the responsibilities of all members of the executive group is to participate in regular lunch/work meetings (usually every second or third week) with the course management and project group leaders during the project phase (October - December).

Due to the fact that this group will interact with many persons outside of the course, only Swedish-speakning students are welcome to apply!
