Company: Northvolt

Location: Stockholm, Sweden


During this summer I got the pleasure of working at Northvolt at their IP department in Stockholm. As a leader for the future of energy innovation, Northvolts mission is to build the greenest battery in the world. Their revolutionizing recycling processes and recently announced joint venture with Volvo cars are only parts of the exiting things to come. Entering this dynamic sphere made is possible evolve on an individual level and contribute to something bigger than the company itself.

At the summer intern position, I got to apply my knowledge from my education into practice and utilize my multidisciplinary combinations to generate results for both department reviews and presentations on a higher level at the company. With my background as an engineer within biotechnology and master within entrepreneurship and business design – intellectual capital management, I was ready to tackle any challenge thrown my way. My tasks included patent analysis, contracting, and performing an independent IP strategy project. The project spanned across the whole summer period and enabled me to interact across departments of business development, legal and R&D. One thing I really appreciated was the openness to learning and interactions across departments and offices. With a big group of over 110 summer interns, we were welcomed to the company through organized events and got the opportunity to attend lunch and learns weekly and CEO hands-on info sessions with Peter Carlsson. This added to the creation of the inspiring environment of the office. We got to visit the Västerås office at Northvolt Labs and were offered to visit the newly built Northvolt Ett in Skellefteå. My manager and the IP team were fantastic at including me various meetings and tasks that I showed an interest for. Allowing me to steer the path of my very own experience at this internship.

This summer has illustrated to me that Northvolt is a place of highly engaged and innovative people. All desiring to contribute to a better future. As a person I have grown in my capabilities of communication and project management. A big thank you to all the amazing people I meet during this summer! I had a brilliant time and would recommend Northvolt to anyone who is looking for a challenge, not solely to their personal skillset but also in solving the problems of tomorrow.

If you are thinking of applying for the internship or have any questions, don’t hesitate to message me!
