We have however remained connected through our formal online meetings and webinar engagements Following the postponement of our Annual Conference, the SANORD Executive recommended the postponement of the call for proposals and applications for our Research Projects (TGP) and the Brian O’ Connell Scholarship to 2021.

A new Call for Proposals will be made in April 2021.

Current research projects and BOC scholarship awardees (from our 2019 grants) will still be able complete their mobility once national and international travel resumes.

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
