The first week of November 2015 was interesting for Swedish Research and Innovation in Singapore! Singapore was the host for The Swedish Academic Collaboration Forum (SACF), a consortium consisting of six of Sweden’s most prominent universities, i.e. Chalmers University of Technology, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Lund University, Linköping University, Stockholm University and Uppsala University.
The aim of SACF is to strengthen existing research cooperation as well as to facilitate and initiate new collaborations between academic institutions in Sweden and five strategically chosen countries: Brazil, Indonesia, Korea, China and Singapore.
Topics such as education, urban systems, materials, social development and aging were discussed during four sessions with participation from researchers from all the collaborating universities.
The program was well attended by 70 visiting researchers from Swedish universities with over 500 people attending all the sessions.
