The purpose of STINT’s activity is to strengthen the competitiveness of Swedish universities and colleges through the development of international relationships. The internationalisation of higher education and research is mainly based on concerted, long-term efforts. Sometimes however, it is important to be able to act quickly when the opportunity arises. STINT offers Initiation Grants for this purpose.
Initiation grants are given for the implementation of short-term projects targeting the building of new and strategically interesting international relationships. Collaborations with partners outside the EU/EFTA are eligible (find out more about STINT and Brexit).
