    Tracing ISP Graduates 2008-20132016Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    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.

    The Development of Cooperation Between Al Baha University and Uppsala University, Sweden2014In: International Exhibition and Conference on Higher Education, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, 2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Developing new master level education is a complex task. Not only is the competence within the discipline crucial; teaching and as a consequence, learning, must also be research-focused and must aim to encourage the students to develop into independent scholars.

    In this collaborative, multi-facetted project Al Baha University, Saudi Arabia, (ABU) and Uppsala University, Sweden, (UU) work jointly to develop ABU into a leading actor in master level education with a corresponding research profile. The schools/departments take their own decisions on design and priorities of the activities. In this way the project profits from the local competencies at both sites and becomes locally situated and thus closer to the needs and expectations of the ABU staff.

    The partners entered into collaboration 2011. Among initial achievements was the common identification of the need of a bridging year for tentative master’s students, to complement the skills from the undergraduate (UG) level, and reinforce the command of English, which is a necessary tool in international education. In addition, computer science and mathematics were selected as the initial development areas.

    Within mathematics, the Department of Mathematics at UU was engaged in a discussion aiming primarily to develop the UG curriculum to match the needs of a future master programme, and secondly to develop the curriculum of a ABU master programme in mathematics to match UU standards, with the possibility in mind of student exchange targeting specific courses and thesis studies.

    Meanwhile, in the autumn 2013 a female staff member of ABU was admitted as PhD student in mathematics at UU, and has now started her second semester of full time studies.

    Within computer science (CS), the project tackles the significant challenges to encourage students, teachers and the formal university structures to embrace the ideas of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). The aim is to promote staff and students to broaden their perspective on what research and investigation means and to critically examine teaching and learning. As a consequence, the ways to relate to the students, the subject area, the teaching and the colleagues must be scrutinised, with the intent of finding new teaching and learning forms.

    The project implements these ideas in several ways. Currently a staff development course is given as a starting point for the project within CS. With a focus on the changes needed to implement the ideas of SoTL, the course participants make their own pedagogical development projects, and study their own practice and its outcomes using rigorous research-based methods. As a continuation, during the coming years, the two universities will run a set of workshops, mainly with a methodological focus, followed by a series of three conferences, with the first one serving the local area, and the last being an internationally recognised Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) sponsored conference.

    International Science Programme (ISP): Annual Report to Sida 20112012Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    ISP provides long-term support to Research Groups and Scientific Networks. The work is carried out in close cooperation with research groups at more advanced host institutions. Although Uppsala University is the base of the operation, ISP functions as an international program and host laboratories may be at other Swedish universities, in other Nordic and European countries, and in the regions. This is to meet the requests from developing countries on their own terms. ISP also handles other research programs, organised by Sida.

    In 2011, ISP provided support to 31 research groups and 14 regional networks. The supported groups are located in ten countries in Asia and Africa; Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Laos, Mali, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Supported regional networks are coordinated from countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Groups and networks together utilized about 19 million SEK.

    A total of 185 PhD students (24% of which were female) were active in ISP-supported research groups and scientific networks in 2011, of which 54% on a sandwich basis. During the year, 19 students graduated on the PhD level, about a third of them participating in sandwich programs. The number Master students was 319, of which 27% were female, and 12% participated in sandwich programs. Of the 96 graduating, only 1 participated on a sandwich basis.

    Regarding dissemination of scientific findings in 2011 it can be noted that 44% of the in total 148 publications in international scientific journals were in high-ranking journals listed with ISI impact factors. In addition, 23 contributions were made in the form of books, chapters, popular publications and technical reports. Furthermore, 183 contributions were made to scientific conferences, 41% at the international, 33% at the regional, and 26% at the national level, and 42 scientific events were arranged.

    Support to the Basic Sciences in Developing Countries: Importance of Scientific Networks2011In: Asian Biotechnology and Development Review, ISSN 0972-7566, Vol. 13, no 3, p. 125-129Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The International Science Programme (ISP) at Uppsala University, Sweden, since 1961 has been devoted to long-term support for building capacity in scientific research and higher education in developing countries in the Basic sciences. An increased domestic capacity for research and higher education in the Basic sciences has a long-term impact on development. In the larger perspective support to the Basic sciences is generally low or neglected, despite their importance for sustaining applied sciences and quality science education. Regional and interregional cooperation may be a fruitful approach to overcome many constraints, adding value to participating scientists and their institutions. Therefore, ISP support to regional collaboration and the formation of scientific networks was initiated already in the early 1980s. Currently, nine chemistry networks are supported, in the fields of analytical chemistry, biotechnology, environmental chemistry, natural products chemistry, and technical and analytical support and training. The activities carried out by the networks are diverse. For support to networks to continue in the future the demands will increase to demonstrate benefits, added value, achievements, impacts, and sustainability.
