Strategic Grants for Internationalisation
Academic actors play an important role in a rapidly changing world facing global and local challenges. Academic freedom, openness and international collaboration are all ingredients facilitating sustainable development.
Internationalisation brings opportunities to enhance education, strengthen research and support innovation and services. Ambitious and creative strategic internationalisation initiatives are demanding but often also rewarding. With Strategic Grants for Internationalisation, STINT contributes to such initiatives at university level.
This programme is aimed at the university leadership. Applications should incorporate strategically important internationalisation initiatives which also utilise the experience and dedication of individual leaders in their field at each university.
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.
Applications must be submitted by the vice-chancellor of a Swedish university no later than 15.00 on the 12th of March 2020.
Each higher education institution may participate in up to two applications per call.
The application must be written in English. Complete applications must be submitted through STINT’s application system
