Research Projects


Southern African – Nordic Centre (SANORD) was founded at a meeting of universities from seven countries at the University of the Western Cape.

It is designed to further multilateral academic cooperation between the Southern African and Nordic regions and to strengthen the capacity of all member institutions to address new local and global challenges of innovation and development. The leadership of member institutions meets annually for discussion and planning of joint endeavours.

The Centre augments the many bilateral agreements and collaborative projects between institutions in both regions.  It builds on the deep relationships of trust which have developed between the regions over many years, and on shared fundamental values of democracy, social equity and academic engagement.

Dear all friends of the SANORD community. 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation the SANORD board has decided to hold the entire conference on a digital platform. The programme will be restructured and shortened, but we will keep the same dates 7- 10 September 2021.

Information about participant fee and registration will be announced during February 2021.

If you have handed in an abstract for the 2020 conference, you can choose to keep this for the 2021 digital conference or submit a new abstract. The new submission deadline is 1 April 2021.

sincerely,
SANORD conference Committee
