Discussion on the balance between collaboration and competition – and the concept of coopetition. 

What are the barriers and opportunities for intensified collaboration between Sweden and Finland in higher education and research? How can we increase mobility between Sweden and Finland in higher education and research? How can we collaborate to have greater influence in European university alliances? How can we collaborate to obtain more European research funding for Sweden and Finland?
