SANORD Board is pleased to inform you that the Call for Proposals to host the 2021 and 2022 Annual Conferences are now open.

The 14th Annual conference will be held in the Southern African region (2021) and the 15th Annual Conference will be held in the Nordic region (2022).

We specifically call our institutions who have not yet hosted such an event to submit a “Letter of Intent” to host a conference. We also call upon universities within a neighbouring region to the host university who wish to host a SANORD Partner Day usually a day or two before the conference on route to the conference. The theme and the subthemes of the conferences should directly link to the Mission, Vision, Goals and Objectives of SANORD and in particular the SDG’s (Sustainable Development Goals), SANORD Strategy 2022. 

We invite all our member institutions who are interested to be the proud host to submit a “Letter of Intent” including dates, venue, draft theme and subthemes to us by 30 June 2019 to and For ease of reference, the theme for the 12th conference this year is “Role of Higher Education and Research institutions in forging sustainable livelihoods”. Theme for the 13th conference in 2020 will focus on the SDG’s in particular.

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
