Symposia and Meetings

Research Symposia

In order to identify concrete opportunities for collaboration, Illinois and KTH Royal Institute of Technology have organized jointly two bilateral research symposia. The Stage I Research Symposium was held on the Urbana campus on December 8-10, 2010. The Stage II Research Symposium was held at KTH in Stockholm on May 4-6, 2011.

These symposia included presentations, a graduate student poster session, and break-out sessions to discuss cross-institutional strategic research initiatives and exchange as well as programmatic issues in undergraduate and graduate education, including student exchanges, possible joint graduate degrees, internships, and corporate relations. The first symposium also featured the formal signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the two institutions.

Alliance Summit

In order to achieve the broad, deep, and comprehensive engagement envisioned in the INSPIRE Alliance, a summit will be held on the Urbana campus on April 25-26, 2012. The INSPIRE Alliance Summit, hosted by Dr. Phyllis M. Wise, Vice President of the University of Illinois and Chancellor of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will include President Harriet Wallberg-Henriksson of Karolinska Institutet, President Peter Gudmundson of KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and Vice-Chancellor Kåre Bremer of Stockholm University as well as senior administrators and key faculty, from all four INSPIRE partner institutions.
