Trend analysis and strategic relationship building: A case study by The Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education


STINT, The Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education, was set up by the Swedish Government in 1994 with the mission to internationalize Swedish higher education and research. For the past five years STINT has, in collaboration with Elsevier, developed an evidence based approach with increasing sophistication by using bibliometrics, including developing new indicators, to support players in the Swedish Higher Education and Research in their strategic internationalization work.

In the session Dr Hans Pohl will walk through a series of works done by STINT, outlining the motivation behind the works, what where analytical challenges, and questions that arose from the work.
Together with Dr Pohl, Dr Anders Karlsson from Elsevier, VP Global Strategic Networks, Asia Pacific will provide some commentaries as well as give a brief overview of recent Elsevier work, including a glimpse of recent work looking at how research on clean energy technologies is supporting the path towards Net Zero.
