Helene Hellmark Knutsson to attend the Science and Technology in Society forum in Japan

Published

Sweden’s Minister for Higher Education and Research, Helene Hellmark Knutsson, will visit Japan on 3–7 October. The Minister will attend the Science and Technology in Society (STS) forum in Kyoto and her address will focus on gender equality in higher education.

“Sweden aims to be a leading knowledge and research nation. To get there, our higher education institutions need to be more gender equal. It’s a waste of skills that so few women are professors – and we can't afford such waste,” says Ms Hellmark Knutsson.

The STS Forum brings together politicians, researchers, government agency representatives and other actors from all around the world. Ms Hellmark Knutsson will have bilateral takes with Hakabun Shimomura, Japan’s Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, and John Holdren, senior advisor to President Barack Obama on science and technology issues.
