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.
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.
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.
The Centre augments the many bilateral agreements and collaborative projects between institutions in both regions.
