EMECWThe EMECW consortium coordinated by Lund University was also selected last year (2008) along with three other India/South Asia related EMECW mobility programmes. The Lund University programme was then entitled Lot 15, and included a much wider mobility scheme between Europe and India than the new Lot 13 lots. The partnership programme that was selected in 2008 is currently running at full speed. The mobility of approximately 340 individuals consisists of a flow by 75 % from India to Europe, and 25 % from Europe to India. More information on the Lot 15 project web site.
The same applies more or less to the three South Asia partnership programmes selected in 2008.

 SASNET/Swedish South Asian Studies Network

SASNET is a national network for research, education, and information about South Asia based at Lund University. Its aim is to promote a dynamic networking process in which Swedish researchers co-operate with researchers in South Asia and globally.
The SASNET network is open to all the sciences. Priority is given to interdisciplinary cooperation across faculties, and more particularly to institutions in the Nordic countries and South Asia. SASNET believes that South Asian studies will be most fruitfully pursued as a cooperative endeavour between researchers in different institutions who have a solid base in their mother disciplines.
The network is financed by Sida (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency) and by Lund University.
