International envoys

Do you need help finding an international collaboration opportunity?

Our International envoys can help you!

International collaboration is becoming an increasingly important factor to reach excellence in research and higher education. To facilitate internationalization, the Faculty of Medicine has recruited researchers and teachers with established collaboration and/or affiliation to academic institutions outside Sweden.

Who are our international envoys?

Employees who have an established collaboration with a foreign academic institution and who are willing to assist students and staff within the Faculty of Medicine with contacts to that institution, on a voluntary basis. 

The task?

Serve as a contact point to students and staff who want to develop their international contacts and explore possibilities for activities such as research visits, teacher mobility, data collection or collaboration in teaching and research.
