Tekna's vision statement is Tekna creates the future. Our values ​​can be summed up as follows: Be credible, innovative and courageous. Our Code of Ethics gives you a basis for reflecting on what it means to be credible, innovative and courageous.

Ethical reflection

In our society we have and must relate to several laws and regulations that establish ethical values ​​and norms. As professionals we must also respect the guidelines of our employers and business partners.

As a Tekna member, you must be able to make up your own mind. Your decisions should stand up to ethical reflection, and you should always clarify in advance if your decisions:

  • are legal
  • are fair to those affected by them
  • will have adverse consequences for individuals, the environment or society
  • can withstand public attention to them

Tekna encourages its members to reflect on their role as a citizen, professional, union representative, colleague and/or fellow student.

Caring about the community

Be courageous and take responsibility for how your contribution to science and technology affects society and the environment.
