Jerry Olsson participates in Swedish Academic Collaboration Forum
Jerry Olsson, associate professor in Human Geography, is participating in the Swedish Academic Collaboration Forum. The project will facilitate international academic collaborations and enable researchers and research students to become more connected with the global research community. Six leading Swedish universities will hold research and higher education seminars in a selected group of countries, starting with Korea on 21-23 April 2015. The seminar will be hosted by Hanyang University in Seoul. The next seminars will be held in Singapore and China in November 2015 followed by planned seminars during 2016 in Brazil and Indonesia and a final meeting held in Stockholm, Sweden. The project aims to develop and strengthen existing research collaborations, establish new relationships and initiatives between researchers in Sweden and around the world, create opportunities for joint exploration of critical global issues, and connect enterprises and research through innovation.
