Strategic grants develop university collaborations

Eva Åkesson is the Vice-Chancellor of Uppsala University, a university that has been granted funding through the programme Strategic Grants for Internationalisation several times. Among others, a collaboration between South African and Swedish universities through the South Africa – Sweden University Forum has been initiated.

Something that is particularly exciting right now, Eva Åkesson says, is that Swedish institutions have started to collaborate more, together with international partners. The interview is in Swedish.
