The Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education www.stint.se
Research resources in the higher education system The major part of government-financed research takes place at Sweden’s universities, higher education institutions and university colleges. All universities and university colleges have permanent research resources, of various size. University colleges concentrate their task on higher education, but may also have research resources in one scientific area.
International research collaboration The Swedish research community has extensive international contacts. The most common form of international collaboration is individual researchers or research teams pursuing joint projects with colleagues in other countries. Sweden has also long participated in several international research organisations. Participation in EU programmes.
The role of STINT Internationalisation and renewal Establish new and widened international cooperation Networks for Swedish academia Renew and strengthen Swedish research and higher education Have an effect on whole departments and institutions

Swedish institutions of interest Karolinska Institutet, KI Department of Biosciences Göteborg University, School of Global Studies (including a Centre for Asian Studies) Stockholm School of Economics – EIJS a major centre for research on the economies and societies of Japan and East Asia
Mechanisms to cultivate young researchers to gain international experience In 2004 - A national evaluation of the internationalisation work of higher education in Sweden. Discussions with all universities. Expose young PhD-students to spend at least one short visit abroad. Priority is given to short periods. The research foundations play an important role.
Foreign students and the future In 2005 a Government Commission If and how tuition fees shall be charged in Sweden in the future, from foreign students from outside the European Union A proposal in January 2006
