How is it possible to reach better balance and synergies between education and research? The seminar is carried out with the aim to use international and national examples to enhance the linkages between research and education at higher education institutions.

In August 2017, STINT, together with NTU, organised a summer school in Singapore address­ing this important topic. The 24 participants in the summer school reviewed the field and collected examples on how education and research may be linked. This seminar is aiming at implementation of the collected knowledge. It will also provide opportunities to discuss the topic in a broader audience.
