The world is currently changing rapidly and becoming increasingly polarised, complex, and uncertain. These changes will affect many aspects of academia, and academic internationalisation in particular. In order to understand these trends and related challenges as well as opportunities, STINT established an International Advisory Board comprising both Swedish and international experts on higher education and research in 2020.

The role of the Advisory Board is to provide expert recommendations on current issues and discuss future developments of relevance to STINT’s mission. These recommendations cover academic developments within education and research, but also relevant non-academic aspects that will impact academia at large.

The Advisory Board has been tasked by the STINT Board of Directors to compile a foresight study on the role of academic internationalisation in the next decade, Foresight 2030.

Foresight 2030 seeks to provide:
– leaders and policy makers in the Swedish academic ecosystem with a broad overview of current and future trends that may affect the international competitiveness of Swedish higher education and research;
– guidance on how the Swedish institutions can better position themselves internationally;
– recommendations on ways that STINT can enhance its role in the coming decade.

Foresight 2030 will be launched and presented by STINT’s Advisory Board on 26 September 2022.

The Advisory Board consists of:
Dr Agneta Bladh, former Chair, Swedish Research Council
Prof. Bertil Andersson, former President, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
Prof. Jason E. Lane, Dean of the College of Education, Health, and Society, Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, USA
Dr Nelson Torto, former Executive Director, African Academy of Sciences, Botswana
Prof. William Brustein, Acting Director, Global Studies Center, University of Pittsburgh, USA
