Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences strengthens its position as an international top university
STINT, the Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education, annually presents an Index showing the degree of internationalisation at Higher Education Institutions in Sweden . Now they have given a maximum rating, five stars, to Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.
In recent years, Chalmers, KTH, and the Stockholm School of Economics have received a maximum of five stars from STINT. Now the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, SLU, is also joining this exclusive group.
SLU shows notable changes from previous years, and has shown positive developments in practically all indicators, and not least in the area of research, which has a relatively large impact on the overall results.
“Our research areas are closely connected to the global challenges and Agenda 2030. Knowledge generation and the implementation of measures are both more effective if driven by international cooperation. Climate issues provide a clear example, but access to food and water are also questions in which international cooperation comes naturally. Our students are aware of this and we see a clear interest in exchange studies. We are very pleased about this acknowledgement that our investments in internationalisation have borne fruit,” says Maria Knutson Wedel, Vice-Chancellor of SLU.
