The programme starts in the autumn semester of 2024 and leads to a joint degree of 120 credits which is issued and signed by all three universities in a joint degree certificate. Work on drawing up the agreement has been ongoing since spring 2022.

A focus in the work on the agreement has been that the students on the upcoming programme, as far as it is possible, should experience that they are programme students just as much at Karolinska Institutet as KTH Royal Institute of Technology as at Stockholm University.

In the development of the agreement, different parts of the administrations at the three universities have collaborated in their respective areas. In connection with the steering group meeting in Stockholm trio on 7 June 2023, academic representatives and officials who have been involved in the work gathered and the three Presidents signed the agreement.
