Public Diplomacy and the Role of International Academic Cooperation
September 7, 2015, 09:45-16:30
World Trade Center, Klarabergsviadukten 70/Kungsbron 1, Stockholm

Universities are expanding their international partnerships and networks around the world. The globally increasing number of students, researchers, programmes and universities that cross borders make higher education into an important instrument for the development of international relations. International academic cooperations can benefit the missions of universities, strengthen diplomatic relations, contribute to innovation and a globally sustainable development, but there are also challenges and risks. How are international academic collaborations affected when values and conditions differ? Is academic freedom a necessity or a goal? Experienced speakers from Sweden and abroad will, at this STINT Forum, address these issues and give perspectives on how universities with the right strategy can handle the risks and still be engaged globally.

International Recruitment of Students, Faculty and University Leaders
Den 26 november 2014, 09:00-16:00
KTH Kista, Electrum, Kistagången 16/Isafjordsgatan 26, Kista

Globaliseringen har med stor kraft nått universitetsvärlden. I länders strävan att skapa ekonomisk tillväxt och nya näringar har det blivit en hård internationell konkurrens om de mest talangfulla forskarna och studenterna. Rekrytering av topptalanger, både forskare och studenter, från andra länder har blivit en viktig mekanism både för att höja kvalité och introducera nya forskningsperspektiv, men även för att utveckla lärosätens internationella nätverk.

Den externa rekryteringen är dock låg till de svenska lärosätena. Hur påverkar det Sverige och hur står sig svenska lärosäten i den internationella konkurrensen om talanger?

Med detta forum inbjuder STINT till ett unikt tillfälle att lyssna till och diskutera med svenska och utländska aktörer med erfarenhet av internationell rekrytering av studenter, forskare och universitetsledare.

China Cooperation – the Next Phase
Den 13 juni 2014, 09:30-15:30
Universitetshuset, Paradisgatan 2, Lund,  Våning 2, Sal 206

Ett STINT Forum i samarbete med Lunds universitet

Kinas stora satsningar på forskning och högre utbildning har lett till att flera forskningsmiljöer i världsklass har utvecklats under en kort tid inom ett flertal vetenskapsområden. Svenska lärosäten har tidigt skapat flera samarbeten med Kina, vilket i jämförelse med andra EU-länder har resulterat i en förhållandevis stor andel sampubliceringar. Analyser har dock visat att samarbetena är begränsade till ett fåtal lärosäten och forskningsmiljöer. I övrigt består det av små volymer och fragmentering. Andra EU-länder har däremot på kort tid gjort stora satsningar i Kina, exempelvis breda forsknings- och utbildningscenter. Med allt fler utländska lärosäten som söker samarbeten i Kina hårdnar konkurrensen om att skapa strategiska och givande partnerskap.

Målet med detta STINT Forum är att inspirera till en ny fas av Kinasamarbete. Några av de svenska och kinesiska lärosätena med omfattande samarbeten mellan länderna presenterar sina visioner för framtiden. Till det ges perspektiv från båda länderna på nationell nivå och två exempel på forsknings- och utbildningssamarbeten från Danmark och Storbritannien.

Global trends and challenges in higher education and research
September 21 2011, 09:00-16:30, in Stockholm

There are enormous changes afoot globally in higher education and research. Competition for students and research funds is leading universities to expand across national borders. A number of countries are setting up new universities with world-class ambitions. Strong alliances in higher education and research are being built up globally and creating new opportunities, educational offerings and research strength. Never before has the issue of educational exports been so critical.

With this forum, STINT is offering a unique opportunity to hear and discuss with various international experts on the internationalisation of higher education and research. The forum will be introduced by Peter Honeth, Secretary of State, Swedish Ministry of Education, and conclude with a panel discussion involving the speakers and Pam Fredman, President of SUHF and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Gothenburg.
