Communicate the merger and HDK-Valand

News: Nov 22, 2019

If you need to communicate the new department HDK-Valand and the merger, you may use this text, in Swedish and English, as support. They are written by the management in collaboration with communicators and translator.

We are many members of staff who communicate with the outside world in HDK's, Valands and soon also in HDK-Valand's name. There are several advantages to providing a coherent picture of the overall purpose of the merger and of the new department's organization and mission:

  • It becomes clear and easier to understand for our stakeholders
  • It gives a professional impression
  • The information is accurate and the translation correct
  • It can also save time and simplify the job for you who will be informing.


The texts are available in English and Swedish, in shorter and longer variations on the merger and on the activities of the new institution. You can find the Swedish versions on this page's Swedish mirror.
