A Swedish Approach to International Communication.
Heisey, D. Ray
The Uppsala International Seminar in Physics assists universities in developing countries in their endeavors to provide a useful and solid training of scientists at all levels (secondary, undergraduate, and postgraduate), to promote basic and applied research within the field of physics, and to demonstrate the fruitfulness of international and regional cooperation and communication. These objectives are met by providing assistance in three forms; fellowships to members of the Swedish research teams, complimentary equipment to supported research teams, the expert advice by able research leaders who make "expert missions" to the nation from which the Fellows have come. The assistance is designed for institutions, not individuals, in the developing countries. By training scientists to cultivate the research needs and priorities of their own localities and by maintaining educational and personal ties between scholars after the ten-week seminar, the program is engaged in dialogical communication instead of the traditional monological approach between the modernized country and the developing country.
