    The Sandwich Model: A Successful Case of Capacity Building2017In: Internationalisation of Higher Education - A Handbook, Vol. 1, p. 54-64, article id D2.8Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on the experiences of the International Science Programme (ISP) at Uppsala University, Sweden, this article describes and analyses the sandwich (PhD) model, where students from lower income countries spend part of their training at their home university and part at a better resourced university abroad. The model does more than provide scholarships; it includes long-term collaboration and commitment between partners, and improvement of research environments at students’ home institutions. By maintaining the connections to the home institutions throughout their training, conducting research of local relevance, and benefiting from enhanced research opportunities, graduates are facilitated to return home and continue their research after graduation.

    The International Science Programme in Sri Lanka and Thailand: Three decades of research cooperation2017 (ed. 1)Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Developing capacity for research and higher education takes time, especially in resource scarce environments. Equipping laboratories, building human capacity, and establishing research cultures at teaching oriented universities are complex and slow processes. This book focuses on the long-term cooperation with chemistry and physics research groups at universities in Sri Lanka and Thailand, provided by the International Science Programme (ISP) at Uppsala University, Sweden. It traces and gathers experiences from graduated students and other collaborating partners from supported groups. It addresses questions of if, and how, capacity for research and higher education has developed over the decades of ISP support, and the possible effects, efficiency, sustainability and improvements of it.

    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.

    Modeling battery cells under discharge using kinetic and stochastic battery models2016In: Applied Mathematical Modelling, ISSN 0307-904X, E-ISSN 1872-8480, Vol. 40, no 17-18, p. 7901-7915Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we review several approaches to mathematical modeling of simple batterycells and develop these ideas further with emphasis on charge recovery and the responsebehavior of batteries to given external load. We focus on models which use few param-eters and basic battery data, rather than detailed reaction and material characteristicsof a specific battery cell chemistry, starting with the coupled ODE linear dynamics ofthe kinetic battery model. We show that a related system of PDE with Robin typeboundary conditions arises in the limiting regime of a spatial kinetic battery model,and provide a new probabilistic representation of the solution in terms of Brownianmotion with drift reflected at the boundaries on both sides of a finite interval. Tocompare linear and nonlinear dynamics in kinetic and stochastic battery models westudy Markov chains with states representing available and remaining capacities of thebattery. A natural scaling limit leads to a class of nonlinear ODE, which can be solvedexplicitly and compared with the capacities obtained for the linear models. To indicatethe potential use of the modeling we discuss briefly comparison of discharge profilesand effects on battery performance.

    Analytical and stochastic modeling of battery cell dynamics2012In: Analytical and Stochastic Modeling Techniques and Applications: 19th International Conference, ASMTA 2012, Grenoble, France, June 4-6, 2012, Proceedings / [ed] K. Al-Begain, D. Fiems, and J.-M. Vincent (Eds.), Berlin Heidelberg: Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2012, p. 240-254Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this work we present and discuss a modelling framework for the basic discharge process which occurs in simple electrochemical battery cells. The main purpose is to provide a setting for analyzing delivered capacity, battery life expectancy and other measures of performance. This includes a number of deterministic and stochastic variations of kinetic battery models. The primary tool is a novel phase plane analysis of the balance of nominal and theoretical capacity. In particular, we study spatial versions of such models which lead to a linear diffusion equation with Robin type boundary conditions under scaling. Explicit solutions are obtained by considering reflected Brownian motion.

    Regional and Interregional Cooperation to Strengthen Basic Sciences in Developing Countries: Addis Ababa, 1-4 September 20092011Conference proceedings (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The International Science Programme (ISP) at Uppsala University, Sweden, is devoted to long-term support to institutional capacity building in research and higher education in developing countries, with focus on the basic sciences: physics (since 1961), chemistry (since 1970), and mathematics (since 2002). Both research groups and scientific network activities are supported.

    Interdisciplinary and applied research is important in solving a number of challenges facing the world today. Problems related to our environment, the needs for energy and food, access to clean water, treatment of diseases, are just a few examples. However, the basic sciences form the pillars on which applied sciences and engineering are built and without a proper scientific base it is difficult to sustain research of an immediate importance to developing countries.

    Funding to developing countries for developing research and training in basic sciences is, however, very limited. Furthermore, in many cases the researchers in these countries experience isolation from the scientific community.

    Regional and interregional cooperation is one way to help overcome these limitations and generate complementary scientific research activities, give access to advanced equipment, and increase the human capital needed to conduct MSc and PhD programs of a good standard.

    The present volume is the result of an international conference highlighting the importance of regional and interregional cooperation for the development of research and higher education in basic sciences in developing countries. A large number of examples are given of fruitful initiatives for scientific collaboration as well as their successful outcomes.

    Antheraea pernyi (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae) and Its Importance in Sericulture, Food Consumption, and Traditional Chinese Medicine2017In: Journal of Economic Entomology, ISSN 0022-0493, E-ISSN 1938-291X, Vol. 110, no 4, p. 1404-1411Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sericulture was developed in China in ancient times. Antheraea pernyi Guerin-Meneville was domesticated at least 2,000 yr ago, and Chinese farmers developed artificial rearing of A. pernyi before the 17th century. Today, > 60,000 tons of cocoons are produced in China each year, which accounts for 90% of the world production. Despite the widespread utilization of A. pernyi in China and a long history of domestic research, the knowledge of A. pernyi outside China is limited. Therefore, we have in this paper summarized the production, usage, and breeding of A. pernyi. The foremost usage of A. pernyi is as silk producers; however, about 55-70% is used for other purposes. In this paper, we give examples of how the different developmental stages are used as a food source for human consumption and in traditional Chinese medicine, both directly in different preparations and also as a nutrient source for rearing medicinal fungi.

    International science programme, Uppsala university, 1961-20012001Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    On the 1st of September, 1961, an international fellowship programme started at theInstitute of Physics, Uppsala University. Fifteen fellows from 14 developing countrieswere invited to spend one academic year in Sweden to be trained in research work. Theprogramme was at that time called the International Seminar for Research and Educationin Physics. Today, 40 years later, the programme has developed from a fellowshipprogramme into a worldwide research project programme, not only in physics but alsoin chemistry, and has given long-term support to the building up of viable researchteams in the Third World. Host laboratories in the northern hemisphere, mainly inSweden but also in other countries, cooperate with the research groups in the ThirdWorld. The programme changed its name in 1987 to the International Science Programme.The programme has been financially supported by the Swedish Government throughits agencies for aid to developing countries. Uppsala University, UNESCO and IAEAhave also contributed.The development of the programme is described. In his introduction the Vice Chancellorof Uppsala University points out the importance for the entire university to beengaged in cooperation with the Third World. Ideas about the future of the programmeare presented. Some of the research groups in the Third World have been engaged in theprogramme for nearly twenty years. Their experience is presented in a number of shortarticles.

    On the use of shear-dependent turbulent length-scales2008In: Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society, ISSN 0035-9009, E-ISSN 1477-870X, Vol. 134, no 631, p. 539-540Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We investigate the behaviour of the recently proposed shear-dependent turbulent length-scale in the neutrally stratified surface layer. It is found that close to ground, this shear-dependent length-scale is proportional to height, and thus, equivalent to the law of the wall. We speculate that the law of the wall could be just a special case of applying the shear-length to near-surface flows.

    International Science Programme (ISP): Annual Report to Sida 20102011Report (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 2010, 28 Research Groups were supported in 10 African and 4 Asian countries; 5 groups in Kenya, 4 in Sri Lanka, 3 each in Laos and Zimbabwe, 2 each in Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, and Malawi, and 1 each in Ghana, Mali, Nigeria, Senegal and Zambia. In addition, 15 regional Scientific Networks were supported, 12 in Africa, 2 in Asia, and 1 in Latin America.

    A total of 117 PhD students (12% of which were female) were active in ISP‐supported research groups and scientific networks in 2010, of which 57% on a sandwich basis. During the year, 25 students graduated on the PhD level, about half of them participating in sandwich programs. The number Master students were 232, of which 26% were female and 10% participated in sandwich programs.

    Regarding dissemination of scientific findings in 2010 it can be noted that most (66%) of the in total 83 publications in international scientific journals were in high ranking journals listed with ISI impact factors. International publications clearly dominated over publication in regional (15) and national (2) journals. In addition, 18 contributions were made in the form of books, chapters, popular publications andtechnical reports.

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.

    ISP provides long-term support for the development of active and sustainable research environments within these basic sciences in developing countries. The support is directed to research groups and regional networks. The work is carried out in close cooperation with research groups at more advanced host institutions. Although Uppsala Univ. is the base of the operation, ISP functions as a national programme and host laboratories may be located 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 support includes equipment, spare parts consumables, technical services, literature, computer hard- and software, and all costs associated with participating in meetings, exchange visits, training, etc. Besides what has been achieved in terms of development and maintenance of resources, contacts, etc., the outcome of ISP support in 2008 can be summarized by the following figures (assuming that one € equals 10 SEK):

    • 19 PhD graduations per M€ invested.
    • 54 MSc/MPhil graduations per M€ invested.
    • 80 international publications per M€ invested.

The support is directed to research groups and regional 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 a national programme 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 funding is used for equipment, spare parts, consumables, technical services, literature, computer hard- and software, and costs associated with arranging and participating in meetings, exchange visits, training, etc. Besides what has been achieved in terms of development and maintenance of resources, contacts, etc., the results of ISP support in 2009 can be summarized based on the expenditures. For each MEUR spent (assuming that one EUR equals 10 SEK) the outcome was:

    • 19 PhD graduations,
    • 59 MSc/MPhil graduations,
    • 45 international publications,
    • 58 regional or national publicationst,
    • 113 conference contributions (34% of which international), and
    • 20 conferences/workshops etc. arranged.
  • 19.

    Experiences and perceptions of South-South and North-South scientific collaboration of mathematicians, physicists and chemists from five southern African universities2016In: Scientometrics, ISSN 0138-9130, E-ISSN 1588-2861, Vol. 108, no 2, p. 717-743Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Faced with limited resources, scientists from around the world enter into collaborations to join their resources to conduct research. Like everywhere else, international co-publishing in southern African countries is increasingly on the rise. The aim of this study was to document and analyse the level of scientific productivity, collaboration patterns, scientists' experiences and attitudes towards South-South and South-North collaboration. We performed 105 interviews with scientists based at five southern African Universities, namely; University of Malawi-Chancellor College, National University of Science and Technology, the University of Botswana, the University of Zambia, and the University of Zimbabwe. We also traced 192 scientists from the various departments at these universities that had jointly published 623 scientific papers in the field of basic sciences in the period 1995-2014 in Web of Science journals. Our results show that in the majority of the cases funding from the North contributed substantially to increased scientific productivity, and international co-authorship. The results also show that collaboration with southern scientists is equally valued as that with northern scientists, but for different reasons. We conclude that supporting international and national collaboration which includes increased scientific mobility, strong scientific groups and networks, are key factors for capacity building of research in southern African Universities.
