The Swedish Institute is a public agency that promotes interest and trust in Sweden around the world. We work in the fields of culture, education, science and business to strengthen international relations and development. We also engage in extensive cooperation with developing countries. The focus is on enhancing the skills of individuals who have the potential to contribute to the development of democracy and rights. By linking them up with Swedish actors in the field, we establish relationships that are of mutual benefit. We present Sweden as a good country to live in, in order to attract students, researchers and talents. The Swedish Institute’s core activities involve: Analysing how foreign target groups perceive Sweden, and how this affects opportunities for Swedish actors abroad.Providing expert support to both private and public actors wishing to communicate the image of Sweden and Swedish skills.
