For the University of Skövde it is natural to contribute to growth and prosperity through our work which includes collaboration with the rest of society. We keep an ongoing dialogue and exchange of knowledge between the University, the business world, the region of West Gothia, local communities, organisations and students. The purpose is to be part of our regions development, as well as the development of all of Sweden.
To do this the University of Skövde has International Coordinators who manage the already established contacts, and at the same time seek new cooperations and contacts.
Our aim is that collaborations with the University of Skövde should be easy. The atmosphere is open and innovative. We listen to the needs of the world that surrounds us. We can play an important part through our specific knowledge within education and research.
Feel free to contact the International Coordinators if you have questions or ideas about any kind of collaboration with the University of Skövde.
