Educational Exchange

The INSPIRE alliance offers a range of opportunities for educational exchange between the partner institutions. Ideas that are currently being pursued include:

Curricular exchange and innovation:

  • The establishment of two shared and co-taught Illinois-KTH class-lab-field courses on a) Environment and Society in a Changing Arctic (on location at KTH and in the Arctic) and b) Coral Reef Ecosystems and the history of Scandinavian Colonialism (on location in Caribbean).
  • Participation of KTH students in an Illinois-based web course on organic chemistry.
  • Joint student competition on Innovation for Smart Cities (i-SC).
  • Joint lecture series on Smart cities and Cloud computing.
  • Connecting Swedish startups with Illinois students to help with US customers for Swedish technologies and vice versa.
  • Participation of KTH students and faculty in Illinois-based Technology Entrepreneurship courses and similarly for Illinois students and faculty in activities organized by the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship.
  • Web based courses in digital cultures and media and communication studies

Reciprocal exchange programs:

  • Reciprocal teaching exchange programs outside of existing sabbatical framework.
  • Extensive reciprocal undergraduate student exchange on the order of 30-40 students per year.
  • Extensive graduate student and post-doctoral student exchange.
  • Participation of KTH and Illinois faculty on dissertation committees at partner institution.
