Study in Sweden in South Korea is a unique project to recognize Sweden as a knowledge nation where one of the sub goals is to increase the number of students from this region to the higher education institutions. The project also includes collaboration with industry for internships for Korean and Swedish students, making Swedish research more known and developing a strong alumni network. The project is a collaboration between the Swedish Embassy in Seoul and Umeå University, KTH and Lund University. It is supported by the Swedish Institute and the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation.
In the autumn of 2021, Umeå University participated in a recruitment fair on 30 October and a Nobel Symposium on 2 November. All interested parties could follow the symposium with researchers from Sweden and South Korea who commented on this year's Nobel Laureates.
