UiO:Nordic aims to explore:
Nordic countries in the world
Comparisons and contrasts between the Nordic countries, between the Nordic region and other countries and regions, and between institutions, practices and cultural expressions within these countries.
Nordic models, styles and traditions
How Nordic characteristics are constituted, discussed, utilized and criticized within various social, cultural and aesthetic areas.
History and preconditions
Historical commonalities, differences and preconditions in today's Nordic communities.
Sustainability and future opportunities
Political, economic and cultural globalization, migration, Europeanization and standardization present influences and challenges. Countries' development and opportunities are not just about identifying problems and challenges, but also about studying shortfalls, solutions, adaptations and learning – across countries, regions and sectors.
UiO:Nordic is a partner in the consortium "Reimaging Norden in an Evolving World" (ReNEW). It aims to develop ground-breaking research on the Nordic region against the background of an increasingly challenging global context.
Young:Nordic is a network for PhD Candidates and Postdoctoral Fellows and other emerging scholars, including advanced Master students.
