On 25 April 2012, the Swedish Agency for Growth Policy Analysis (Tillväxtanalys) organised a seminar on ”Student recruitment in India – regions, collaborations and advantages for Sweden”. The seminar took place in Gothenburg and SASNET was represented at the meeting through the participation of Julia Velkova. Present in the seminar were also representatives from Jönköping University, University of Gothenburg, University of Borås, Chalmers University of Technology, Skövde University, and Halmstad University. The seminar was based on a recent Growth Analysis report that looks into the possibilities for Swedish universities to develop further their processes of internationalisation and attract more Indian students to study in Sweden after the introduction of fees for studying at higher education insitutions. Read the report.
The seminar was mainly led by Andreas Muranyi Scheutz, representative of Growth Analysis in New Delhi, India who discussed various issues, strategies and Swedish organisations represented in India that could assist Swedish universities in attracting Indian students. Andreas Scheutz' presentation was complemented by input from Andreas Larsson, Growth Analysis Stockholm and Anna Liberg from Exportrådet.
After the seminar in Gothenburg, an identical seminar was held in Stockholm on 25 April 2012.
