Since 2016, a partnership, called MIRAI, has been in operation between Swedish and Japanese universities. Next year marks the start of a new period for the MIRAI partnership with more Swedish and Japanese universities involved in research, education and innovation collaboration. Recently, the next step was discussed at a meeting in Stockholm.
”We take a very positive attitude to the opportunities to partake in a continued development of MIRAI as we have good experience of the projects so far,” says Jorge Solis, associate professor of electrical engineering and contact person for MIRAI at Karlstad University. ”Japanese doctoral students have been here and our students have had the chance to go to universities in Japan. The partnership also includes receiving visiting professors.”
