The researcher takes a more and more often abroad, even to distant lands – the students again remain rather at home

assistant professor Jarkko salo lake live career, perhaps the most international of stages. The salon lake is already a half years working Nanayangin technological university in Singapore, where he is launching his own investigation.

salon lake still works also in Finland – he is here the academy inspector. Still he has had time to be involved in many things in the world. Recently, attention has been attracted, in particular of avocado research, (you move to another service)which is the reach of the Us academy of sciences Pnas publication read articles among them. (you move to another service)

Avocado-the study was basic research, which has practical applications. Thanks to avocado processing can be momentum, which again facilitates certain pathogens for resistant varieties development. Avocado in addition, similar solutions would be needed urgently, for example, banana and olive trees.

the research in the article draw attention to the unusually extensive and international research team, which has participated in its drafting. The name of conclude accompanied by a crowd so in the west than the east too. And one Finnish.

Jarkko salo lake's own words, his share was "relatively small". He found one solution as to how angiosperms plant speciation has progressed.

Modern internationalization development started at Cern

in the salon of the lake end up a scholar among them is one proof of how the Finnish academic world is internationalized.

the New issue is not the case, as through the centuries the Finnish has visited european universities, reminiscent of the university of Helsinki vice rector Hanna Snellman.

the actual development of the first steps was taken in Switzerland at the European particle research facility at Cern, but now internationalisation is a wide-ranging have. For example, last year recorded 3 500 at least a week lasting to visit finland to abroad, and not all visit you even in this chapter.

the Annual visit volumes have been up over last year the highest this decade. Snellman that salon lake say they believe, that Finnish researchers are now international than ever before.

International mobility, conditions of funding

the Development is influenced by the fact that research funding as a prerequisite is now an international movement. Spent abroad research are one of the criteria for the academy of Finland funding.

the Development is supported consciously, because for researchers it is important to be able to compare and mirror work internationally.

researchers works on the motive that if is involved in the avocado study, like many in the national connection in the article, read it in other scientific articles more in the world. And the same will be noticed.

This is also confirmed by the salon in the lake. Research teams from going in scientific circles very much through the contacts, he said.

– If someone's work is known and trusted, called her research consortia.

fewer and fewer students going on exchange abroad

at the Same time when researchers are increasingly mobile world, it is the students ' internationalization taken the plunge.

yle, too, the news recently report, which according to the former fewer students leaving for exchange abroad. According to it, exchange of high school students decreased 15% in the years 2016-2018.

the vice principal Hanna Snellman strengthen the development of the university of Helsinki with regard to. According to him, in 2010 leavers was nearly a thousand, but in recent years no longer over 600. Also, for example, Aalto university's new students are not the source of the exchange nearly as often as before.

the development of the reasons to be discussed, but it is known that the trend has been the same also in the rest of Europe.

Snellman, according to the university of Helsinki has been a net outflow of more than leavers. It says that, too, that the university's teaching and research staff of as many as 24% for some other country than Finland passport.

for Example, the university of Lapland pull in relation to many other better foreign exchange students.

the Exoticism of the pull, but the university has also received the kind of feedback that the applicant of Lapland like the place has been even merit looking for a job, tell internationalisation services to the chief of the Jaana Severidt from the university of Lapland.

the International team to learn a thing or two

– a Very rewarding, describes the salon of the lake work in an international team.

the Work is not in his experience, much different from the normal research groups in Finland work. Salon lake group has 14 members, three of which are in Finland and the rest from Iran, India, China, Singapore and Northern Macedonia.

many kuttuurin the work is rewarding in that you get a very different perspective on world events.

– for example, I Have got to talk to the Indian electoral system and politics in india post-graduate students, and on the other hand heard about it, what kind of Iranian society is behind the scenes.

– based on my Experience I would say that inter-individual differences are cultural differences larger.
