STINT and the Swedish Research Council support collaborations with Chinese universities

Within STINT’s Joint China-Sweden Mobility programme has 15 million SEK been awarded to 30 projects for the period 2021–2024. The Swedish Research Council is contributing 5 million SEK.

The aim of Joint China-Sweden Mobility is to strengthen Swedish research and higher education by developing and establishing international partnerships. It is of particular importance for young researchers and doctoral students to participate in the exchanges. The proposed project must encompass at least one Swedish and at least one Chinese party. STINT’s Chinese partner, the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), finances Chinese participants to an equivalent level.

For the third year in a row, the Swedish Research Council participates in and finances one third of the projects. In total, 165 projects have been funded as part of the programme since 2015.
