Research


One of SANORD’s main objectives is to stimulate multilateral research and innovation. This is primarily done by researchers who team up across institutional, disciplinary and national boundaries. They identify academic fields and research topics where sharing of resources and expertise will expand the capacity and achievements of each member.

NETWORKING


SANORD facilitates networking and meetings among leaders, researchers and students from Nordic and Southern African institutions to discuss and plan joint endeavours. Members get access to contact persons and research groups. SANORD assists with organising regular academic events including major conferences and symposia.

JOINT RESEARCH


SANORD seeks to stimulate research for the creation and sharing of knowledge and understanding on issues of shared concern. Members drive the process of bringing together people, experience, expertise and equipment in multilateral and cross-disciplinary research groups. They identify academic fields and research topics where sharing of resources and expertise will expand the capacity and achievements of each member.

SANORD is a deliberately low-budget organisation, designed to make the best use of synergies with activities at all 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. 

We have therefore decided to postpone the deadline for submission of abstracts until April 20th. Registrations will be possible from April 1st. 

As of now, we plan to organise SANORD 2020 9-11 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
