The Executive Director informs about STINT’s initiative to boost communication and outreach about internationalising higher education and research. He is also commenting the government inquiry into internationalisation and a recent STINT report.
The impact study of STINT´s entire business 1994 – 2015 indicates several positive consequences.
The main part of STINT´s funding has been invested in research collaborations. A large share of the collaborations continues after the period of STINT funding on the same or an even larger scale.
STINT has in cooperation with Elsevier made a comprehensive mapping of how researchers move between higher education institutions. In the data-intensive report, brain circulation maps are given for 28 Swedish HEIs for three types of mobility; national, international and overall. The study was launched at a seminar on December 9th, 2016.
STINT has investigated how international 28 Swedish HEIs are. With this internationalisation index, STINT offers a novel opportunity to measure in a relatively comprehensive manner how international a HEI is.
