I have been always exposed to international environments, both through my studies and work for the UN. I studied in Podgorica (Montenegro), Turin and Milan (Italy) and then I worked for the ILO in Geneva (Switzerland), Turin (Italy) and as a national coordinator of the ILO office in Montenegro. 

 


Hello Christin Scheller!

What brought you to Lund University and Sten K. Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship? 

I came to Lund University to do my masters, having heard about the excellent teachings and international environment. As the University offers various interesting optional courses I took the opportunity to expand my horizon and follow my interests choosing the course “Social Innovation: A Strategy for Sustainability” affiliated to the Sten K. Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship. It was and is by now my favorite course with great teachings and the possibility for students to create own projects. Consequently, I wished to deepen my knowledge and contribute with research in this area.

Tell us about your new job!

I am a research student at the Sten K. Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship, analyzing public-private cooperations in their attempt to create sustainable systems and solutions, which I dedicate most time to. For the remaining part I attend PhD-courses.

What is your background?

My background is a Bachelor of Arts/Licence in  European Media Culture/Information - Communication from (Bauhaus Universität Weimar) Germany and (Université Lumière Lyon 2) France as well as a MSc in Media and Communication from Lund University.
