Published 2015-11-05

By then it was apparent that a record number of applications had been received. 103 applications had been submitted to the South Africa-Sweden Research Cooperation programme and 173 applications to the Joint China-Sweden Mobility programme.

- The large amount of applications shows that STINT's programmes have the right focus. There is a large interest and demand for research cooperation with these countries, comments STINT's Executive Director, Dr. Andreas Göthenberg.

Assessment of the applications are currently underway. The result will be announced in January.

The success for the first call of the South Africa-Sweden Research Cooperation programme was discussed at the bi-national commission between South Africa and Sweden in Stockholm on October 19-20th and received a special mention in the joint communiqué:
