Internationalisation board

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 has established the Internationalisation board to work for this.

KI may have specialised units or bodies established by decision of the government, the board of KI or the President. For example, KI has an internationalisation Board established by decision of the President.
