The management of Uppsala University visited us on Friday. We discussed the strategic research areas and the upcoming research and innovation bill. We also compared our work on Fronesis with Uppsala’s work on its reform, Increased Freedom. We were able to observe many similarities. In the afternoon we devoted some of the time to discussions on quality assurance work – Uppsala is currently working on KoF11, its follow-up to KoF07. We are planning for RIQ13 as a follow-up to RQ08. We have existing cooperation on education and quality assurance, the Master’s project and EQ11-KrUUt. HSV’s new quality assurance system was also discussed.
We have a lot in common when it comes to internationalisation. We are both involved in the Nordic centres in India and at Fudan University, Uppsala has recently joined the European University Centre at Peking University in Beijing and we are members of Sanord (Africa). We are co-applicants in three upcoming Erasmus Mundus lots. We discussed how we can add more substance to our existing areas of cooperation and develop them further. The day concluded with a visit to MAX-lab.
