The aim of the proposed workshop is to present earlier research on multidisciplinary international university collaborations, and against that backdrop invite workshop participants to discuss what can be learned about such collaborations from the SASUF initiative.

The SASUF initiative provides an empirical illustration for learning more about the governance of international and multi-disciplinary university collaborations. Examining the goals and how SASUF has been organized can generate strong take-aways of how to set up and coordinate university collaborations. Given that SASUF is a very ambitious undertaking, characterized by several layers of complexity such as many university partners in both South Africa and Sweden, multidisciplinary, multicultural and aiming for initiating projects that contribute to the UN development goals, we envision both a breadth and depth in the learnings. These findings will be valuable to those who aim to initiate international university collaborations in the future.

During the workshop participants will have an opportunity and are encouraged to share their own experience and reflections regarding the SASUF initiative. The ambition is to enable small group discussion as well as a general discussion before summarizing the workshop participant input.

To conclude, Vice-Chancellor of Uppsala University Eva Åkesson will provide Closing Remarks and an update on the Future of SASUF.
