History KI-Mayo Collaboration
For over 20 years Karolinska Institutet (KI) has cooperated with the Mayo Clinic (USA).
Mayo Clinic and Karolinska Institutet have enjoyed a remarkable 21-year collaboration that began with a small annual scientific meeting focused on diabetes and metabolism. A formal agreement was celebrated in 2011, and the collaboration has expanded to include many areas of joint scientific, academic, and clinical interest.
In 2012, a joint competitive annual travel award program was initiated to promote short-term travel between institutions by faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows and students to plan or conduct collaborative interactions during 2013. The following year, competitive project grants were added as a mechanism to build collaborative strength toward national or international project funding. In 2015, the awards program expanded to include funds for administrative projects. Read more
