Abstract [en]

The International Science Programme (ISP) at Uppsala University, Sweden, aims to contribute to the growth of scientific knowledge in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The ISP model is designed to prevent brain drain by improving local facilities and conditions for research and by promoting local postgraduate training. When local training is not possible, sandwich postgraduate training is employed, where students spend part of their training at their home university and part at a more resourceful scientific host institution abroad, in the North or in the region.

The focus of this report is PhD graduates from ISP supported research groups and networks during the granting period 2008-2013, to trace where they are today and what they are doing.

Most of the 154 traced PhD graduates (92%) are currently working in their home countries (126) or regions (16), most as Lecturers or Senior Lecturers at universities or research institutes. Twelve graduates are currently living in OECD countries, all but two of them employed in academia. A slightly higher share of students trained locally have stayed in their home countries or relocated within the regions, compared to sandwich students.
