October 31st I wrote about the governmental internationalization report which presents a number of suggestions aiming to strengthen and increase international involvement, exchange and cooperation at Swedish universities.
For Swedish universities this is a report of great importance. Currently Sweden can hardly be said to be at the forefront of academic internationalization. Therefore, it is excellent that we now have in our hands a proposal for a comprehensive national strategy that aspires to meet the growing international competition and to exploit new opportunities.There is a lot of potential here.
Work on daily basis
At Karolinska Institutet internationalization is very much in evidence in our education as well as in our research, and we work on a daily basis to be even more visible on the international scene.
A couple of weeks ago I was honored to award a number of international students from outside of EU the KI Global Master’s Scholarship. It was a great opportunity for me to meet these students.
