Internationalisation Advisory Council

Internationalisation is of great and increasing importance to Karolinska Institutet's research and education, strategically, operationally and financially. According to Strategy 2030, one of three strategic choices is that KI should be a global university.

The President and the Faculty Board have support functions that are primarily preparatory in nature. These functions are to consult with other preparatory bodies for the Faculty Board and may appoint groups to work with particular issues. One of these functions is the Internationalisation Advisory Council. The council is to coordinate and prioritize investments in international collaboration/ internationalisation within the university.

The mission
