A message from STINT’s Executive Director

February 2020

Andreas Göthenberg writes on STINT’s role as knowledge resource in an age in which internationalisation has become increasingly complex.
 
He also reflects on the importance of responsible internationalisation, a topic on which STINT is organising a seminar in March. He further describes a cooperation with Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Lund University, which resulted in guidelines for responsible internationalisation. Finally, he writes about STINT’s participation in a panel session at the annual AIEA conference and STINT’s initiative in North America.
 

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.

Great benefits of double degree programmes

A few years ago, the Faculty of Engineering (LTH) at Lund University received funding from STINT for a double degree programme.

“Launching such a programme takes a lot of planning, but there are great benefits to the university and the students,” says Per Warfvinge, professor at LTH.
