Last night a reception was held in Stockholm City Hall, where international scholars at Stockholm universities, and their partners, were invited. The 180 guests were warmly welcomed to Stockholm by the President of the Stockholm City Council, Ms Cecilia Brinck and the Director of Innovation in Stockholm, Mr Gunnar Björkman. They were followed by Professor Lars Strannegård, President of the Stockholm School of Economics, as well as chairman of the Stockholm Academic Forum who spoke of the importance of academic mobility and what the influx of international researchers means to Stockholm.
