Strategic Grants for Internationalisation

In a rapidly developing world with global and local challenges, academic actors play an important role. Academic freedom, openness and international collaboration are ingredients supporting a sustainable development. Internationalisation brings opportunities to enhance education, strengthen research and support innovation and services. Ambitious and creative strategic internationalisation initiatives are demanding but often also rewarding. With Strategic Grants for Internationalisation, STINT contributes to such initiatives at university level.

The programme is aimed at the university leadership. Applications should incorporate strategically important internationalisation initiatives which also utilise the experience and dedication of individual leaders in their field at each university.

Applications should be submitted by the president of a Swedish university no later than 15:00 10th April 2018. Each higher education institution may participate in up to two applications per call. Completed applications should be submitted through STINT’s application system. Applications should be written in English. Please read the complete call text.
