Ambassador Ingemar Dolfe recently hosted a reception to welcome representatives from a leading Swedish University, Karolinska Institutet (KI), who flew to Singapore to attend a joint scientific symposium organized by KI, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) in Singapore.
The symposium aimed to strengthen the existing collaboration in medical research and education between centres of excellence in Singapore and Sweden.
Ambassador Dolfe highlighted the close research collaboration between Singapore and Sweden in his welcome address. He also referred to the bilateral agreement signed by the Swedish Minister of Education and Singapore’s Minister of Education 2010. This bilateral agreement laid the foundation for enhanced co-operation in the areas of education, research and research-based innovation. Currently, some 30 Swedish researchers are working in Singapore.
