A knowledge resource and funder for internationalisation
STINT, The Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education, was set up by the Swedish Government in 1994 with the mission to internationalise Swedish higher education and research.
STINT promotes knowledge and competence development within internationalisation and invests in internationalisation projects proposed by researchers, educators and leaderships at Swedish universities.
STINT promotes internationalisation as an instrument to:
- Enhance the quality of research and higher education
- Increase the competitiveness of universities
- Strengthen the attractiveness of Swedish universities
STINT’s mission is to encourage renewal within internationalisation through new collaboration forms and new partners. For example, STINT invests in young researchers’ and teachers’ international collaborations. Moreover, STINT’s ambition is to be a pioneer in establishing strategic cooperation with emerging countries in research and higher education.
“We provide support and tools for strategic internationalisation to Swedish universities”
Internationalisation has gone from being an added extra in research and higher education to a complex necessity. Andreas Göthenberg, STINT’s Executive Director, sees both opportunities and challenges for Swedish higher education institutions.
“Internationalisation is at least as important now as it was when STINT was founded in 1994, but it has developed from being regarded as an added value into a strategic tool that needs to permeate university operations.”
Andreas Göthenberg has been STINT’s Executive Director since 2009 and here he shares his thoughts on how Sweden can keep abreast of developments.
