What is SANORD?


Southern African – Nordic Centre (SANORD) is committed to advancing strategic, multilateral academic collaboration between institutions in the Southern African and Nordic regions, as we seek to address new local and global challenges of innovation and development.

Its activities are based on fundamental values of democracy, social equity and academic engagement, and on the relationships of trust built between the regions over time.

SANORD was launched in December 2006 and officially established in January 2007 by seven founding members. SANORD is governed according to its Statutes and its Council consists of the principals of all member institutions or their nominees.

The internship positions will be announced on the SANORD website.


A notification will also be sent to our Nordic member institutions.

Dear all friends of the SANORD community. 

The organising committee follows the pandemic situation closely. Many of us in the SANORD community are now busy working around challenges and solutions for our respective campuses, and for many the work situation has been challenged by the situation. 

As of now, we plan to organise SANORD 2021 6-? September, as scheduled. We will, however, adjust if governmental and institutional advice informs us otherwise. This will be clarified at a later stage, and we will keep you updated here. 

We sincerely hope to see you in a healthy Bergen in September! 

Stay healthy,

The SANORD 2020 team
