Research and education networks go where their customers go. So, while research and education grow increasingly global, networks do the same. One recent example is the prestigious Swedish Karolinska Institute’s opening of its first hub outside Sweden, the Ming Wai Lau Centre for Reparative Medicine in Hong Kong.
Karolinska is one of the world’s leading international universities in medical research; the new centre aims to attract researchers from around the world experimenting with innovative ways of replacing damaged or lost tissue. The Lau Centre will focus on basic research concerning technologies of relevance to regenerative medicine, such as RNA technology, single-cell analysis or genetic engineering.
SUNET and NORDUnet provide the required connectivity to make the collaboration happen.
