Collaboration with China
Karolinska Institutet has had research collaboration with universities and institutions in China since the 70’s. Each year KI receives a number of official delegations from Chinese universities and hospitals as well as governmental agencies. Intensified research collaboration with Chinese partners has led to increased interest among Chinese PhD students to come to KI, both for short-term visits as well as candidates wanting to do a full PhD.
KI-China Scholarship Council (CSC) programme
The KI-CSC programme is based on an agreement between KI and CSC, a funding institution under the Ministry of Education of China, which awards scholarships to Chinese scholars going abroad for doctoral studies or visiting research.
The China Faculty is for all KI employees who are interested in China collaborations. Meetings are held regularly 1-2 times per semester and are chaired by the Scientific Coordinators for China.
