With increased global competition and an accelerating pace of innovation, attracting skilled talent is incresingly important to secure long-term economic growth. Conversely, the lack of relevant skills is one of the biggest obstacles to growth. A skilled workforce can be achieved through domestic education, by attracting foreign talent, or by individuals studying abroad or gaining experience in another country.
As part of the project, joint activities will be carried out between the universities and the private sector to increase the exchange of students, researchers, and experts, as well as knowledge exchange in innovation, science and entrepreneurship between Sweden and the U.S. The mission is to strengthen bilateral cooperation and secure the competence needs of tomorrow and promote Sweden as a nation of knowledge.
