A Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) has been signed between Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), and The Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education (STINT), Stockholm, Sweden, to strengthen cooperation and promote research networking between research institutions from both countries.
The MoC was signed by Dr Akhilesh Gupta, Secretary, SERB, and Dr Andreas Göthenberg, Executive Dirctor, STINT.
The MoC aims to promote mobility funding opportunities in both countries. It will facilitate academic cooperation through mobility activities as well as through seminars, workshops and conferences. Both institutions will facilitate and fund researcher mobility through their regular funding programmes.
The two organisations will announce a call that will focus on funding new mobility projects that will be used to exchange several individuals, including workshops between participating research groups. Researchers and scholars at institutions of higher education in Sweden and research institutions in India are eligible to apply for funding under this call, in which applications will be jointly funded.
