The five-year agreement details a range of possible collaborative projects and activities to explore, including faculty and student exchanges, joint research activities and individual faculty partnerships.

This agreement comes on the heels of a visit by a Karolinska Institutet delegation to the UW in November 2018. The delegation, which was led by KI President Ole Petter Ottersen, spent three days engaged in roundtable and small-group discussions with UW leadership and faculty to explore areas for possible population health collaboration.
