NORDNATUR – nature has no borders. NORDNATUR is a Nordic-Baltic network of higher education within the field of
natural resource management. Our objective is to widen up the national perspective of ecosystem management in order to
match the cross-boundary nature of ecosystems and climate. In this way, we aim at educating future natural resource
managers with a wide scope and understanding of sustainability. Our network includes 13 partners from all countries
included in the Nordic-Baltic region. We are all educating in issues related to natural resource management, even though
each of us has specific competences, leading to a wide array of important topics available to our students. Our activities
include networking, mobility of students and staff, and intensive courses. We are working on curricula development, joint
programmes and other activities. As a centre of information we use our web site on http://nordnatur.net. After
enlargement of our network in 2008 by including partners from all three Baltic countries, we have worked on deepening
the co-operation within our network. Our priorities for 2012/13 are a wide array of intensive courses and joint curriculum
development within the field of natural resource management.

[email protected]
Network description
The project involves the development of networked activities among most of the schools of landscape architecture located
in the Eastern Baltic region in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Finland, with Sweden as a supporting partner and Russia as a
non-funded associated partner. The aim is to strengthen the teaching capacities and qualities of each school by
cooperating in developmental activities designed to improve the quality and effectiveness of three focus areas: curricula
structure and content, teaching methods and teaching and learning support in bachelor and master programmes. The
project is seen as a three-year programme with the activities applied for here taking place in all three years with nonfunded work continuing in between. The network will be coordinated by the Estonian University of Life Sciences (EMU) and
each of the themes will be led by one of the partners supported by several of the others so that the workload is spread
across the network. Each of three meetings will be held at a different partner university in order to discuss each theme in
turn and to produce documents and other materials which will form the basis for future development and cooperation
among the network partners, using mechanisms such as Erasmus teaching exchanges, teaching quality assessments and
the development of shared resources. Further funding beyond that applied for here, if available, will provide valuable
opportunities for establishing firm cooperation which will be sustainable over the longer term, where network members
can continue to meet in order to carry out different joint activities.

Network description
The history of this network relates back to the original context and name: Explorations in Music and Dance / The EMD
Network (2005 – 11) and the former Explorations in Music and Dance / EMD Network, and Explorations of Music and Dance
in Collaborative Arts / EMDCA Network (2011 – 2012). The network’s new name The Explorations and Collaborations in the
Arts / The ECA Network reflects the development of collaborative strains uniting diverse artistic disciplines within our
partner universities’ curricula structure. The arts in 2012 and in the future will be seen in the university sector
collaborating more and more. This prepares our students to the reality of the work place and their need to have multitasking skills that allow them to communicate beyond their own disciplines, if they expect to find gainful employment in
their chosen disciplines.

Continue interdisciplinary work with art and design students and teachers on Nordic and Baltic countries, in new locations.
Performing arts, such as dance, music, theatre and performance meet art and design studies: spatial design, new media
arts and multimedia design, lookign for future fields of sensor-based performance, physical computing in live setting,
performing with technology etc.
Dama 10.11 organizes three cutting edge workshops (10th, 11th and 12th in Dama history) and provides also possibilities
for longer term student and teacher mobility. The network expands and makes its results more widely available.
Dama workshops in 2012-13 continue from where previous workshops have gone: taking technologically augmented
actions, installations or performances outside the stage to places which have not traditionally been used for performances.
Classrooms, corridors, attics and later on city streets, church ruins and parking halls have been venues for performances,
games, hybrid mediaperformances etc.

exchange. We have also developed a joint bachelor's program as well as two intensive courses.
Our main priority is to assure the quality of all our activities within the network. We make sure that the participating
universities support our work. Therefore it is important that the Deans of the partner institutions participate in the
development of the network.
The goals of our NordBiz network are:
- to develop and promote cross-cultural and interdisciplinary courses, academic programs and add value to existing
education responsive to a changing global environment;
- to facilitate co-operation between universities and enterprises and improve the exchange of information and know-how;

Network description
The project is aimed at creating and coordinating an intensive course for Master students of business and economics that
stimulates present and future leaders and managers to act in a morally responsible way and deepens their knowledge and
skills how to create organizations which contribute to sustainable development.
The objectives of the project are as follows
1)
to increase students’ knowledge of ethical and environmental issues (e.g. equality and diversity, ethical
leadership, corporate volunteering, standards for environmental management), deepen their understanding how
sustainability and ethics can be promoted by management and leadership activities in organizational contexts;
2)
to stimulate students’ critical thinking, moral imagination, empathy and self-reflection with case studies and
problem-solving tasks;
3)
to develop students’ skills of working in a multinational group, help them to learn to appreciate diverse
perspectives in such cooperation and enhance their experience of dealing with managerial problems in a diverse group,
reflecting different societal contexts;
4)

Network description
The EkoTekNord-network was founded in 1998, when a number of old Nordic networks within business and engineering
merged. Today EkoTekNord also includes ICT, communication, media, logistics, entrepreneurship and innovation. There are
19 network partners and the partnership covers all the Nordic and Baltic countries, except Greenland and the Faroe
Islands. Nevertheless, these areas are covered under student placement activities. The partnership is open for new
partners, which could contribute to fulfil the aims of the network. Potential new partners are being discussed in every
annual partner meeting.
The most important aim of the EkoTekNord is to promote and develop student and teacher mobility in the Nordic and
Baltic countries and at the same time to offer the students an extra dimension with interdisciplinary studies, e.g. within
business, engineering, logistics, communication and entrepreneurship. Network activities are a good way for participating
institutions to exchange and disseminate experiences, best practices and innovative results.
Student mobility within the network has always been the priority area in cooperation. During the past years the network
has spent all the allocated Nordplus mobility grants. The network would also like to engage more teachers in the Nordic –
Baltic cooperation e.g. in the form of teacher exchanges. Because of limited mobility resources we decided, however, to
give priority to student mobility.

Library and information science (LIS) covers a broad range of classical library skills such as organizing information,
classifying/marking up information, finding relevant information and information sharing. With the evolution of various
forms of digital media, primarily the World Wide Web (created 1991); these library skills became central for all modern
organisations. LIS has therefore for the most part of the 20th century dealt with issues relating to information sharing that
other research disciplines have only recently recognized as relevant. While much of LIS still focuses on the different
competences relevant for school libraries, public libraries and university libraries, there is also a heavy emphasis on modern
information technology and services. LIS performs state-of-the-art research on issues relating to information searching on
the World Wide Web and information sharing in social media. Nevertheless, pockets of LIS research are relatively sparsely
distributed over the Baltic-Nordic region. Most countries have one major research and educational environment and a few
very small. As LIS covers a broad spectrum of subject areas, there is a great need for Nordic - Baltic collaboration both
between large departments and as a service to the smaller.

The purpose of the project is to advance global journalism and global journalism education as a practice, as well as the
understanding of global journalism as a field and in society at large. From 2012-2014 we plan to further increase the
integration and elaboration of the already existing expertise on current issues and current research on global journalism
within the partner group, such as climate change and war and peace journalism. After the previous program period, having
introduced and developed climate change as a theme, we now want to develop and update both this theme and a theme
that has followed the master's program since its inception; journalistic reporting of war and conflict. Climate change is an
inherently global issue and is thus pedagogically well suited as a running theme in a global journalism program. So is
journalistic reporting on war, peace, and conflict, with its professional challenges if it is to avoid ethnocentrism and
religious and cultural stereotypes, and contribute to the development of understanding and multiculturalism instead of
intensifying tensions and conflicts.

in apparel engineering in Scandinavian and Baltic countries. In accordance with objectives of the Nordplus Higher
Education Programme the aim of the Nordapparel network is to intensify the exchange of information and ideas,
dissemination of experiences, best practices and innovative results. By strengthening the cooperation of Scandinavian and
Baltic HEIs the Nordapparel network aims to give its contribution to forecast and solve radical challenges facing the apparel
engineering sector in the region.
The network aims to focus on the quality of the education of the future employees of apparel sector ensuring that the
education is adjusted to the new industrial relations and market needs. The network aims to develop close cooperation
between HEIs and the labour market as well as other institutions or organisations involved in or having vested interests in
the area of higher education, including Professional Associations. The network will facilitate to combine each partner’s
strength and share the experience of different countries in matching the needs of labour market with the study programs,
to obtain new professional knowledge and to create modern and innovative study courses. The purpose of the
Nordapparel network is to become significant contributor in the development of apparel sector in the region paving way to
the sustainability of Scandinavian-Baltic apparel engineering.
The European apparel sector faces radical challenges related to the move of main production from European countries. At
the same time more complex and demanding assignments of apparel engineering are strengthening their position in the
Baltic countries in cooperation with Scandinavian and Baltic enterprises. There is apparent need for joint effort of higher
education institutions in the region to pave way to the sustainability of Scandinavian-Baltic apparel engineering.
The Nordplus network Nordapparel will be commenced to advance cooperation between higher education institutions in
the region to intensify the exchange of information and ideas, dissemination of experiences, best practices and innovative
results in the field of apparel engineering through various network activities, including launching the intensive course on
one of the fundamental concerns facing today’s global apparel engineering sector: corporate responsibility and sustainable
development. In the long run the network aims to extend its circle of partners, to develop student and teacher mobility and
to cooperate in curriculum development within the field of apparel engineering.
Great understanding and trust between project partners is based on previous excellent cooperation experience and high
competency of the participating institutions and it will guarantee the success of this network. All network partners will be
extensively involved in all of the network activities and will share the results of the project with their numerous partners in
the industry and educational sector in the region, on the local and European level and beyond.

The Geography network aims at using each partner's specialization fields for offering interesting study opportunities to
students. In other words, students who wish to focus on certain areas of
specialization not as strongly represented at their home institution as at some partner institution, can benefit from the
opportunity of Nordplus student mobility within the Geography network. Network activities also consist of development of
virtual learning techniques, which enable students’ reading, participating and communicating in the mutual, shared virtual
24
platforms of the courses, which are developed in collaboration between Nordplus partners.
The Geography network is formed by departments at the University of Turku, Stockholm University,
Lund University, the University of Oslo and NTNU (Trondheim). The network was created in 1992 with the idea to make
each partner’s strong research areas available to students, teachers and
researchers within the network. The main focus lies on student mobility, but also teacher mobility is
supported.

Daniel Sävborg
[email protected]
Network description
Folklore-Philology is an interdisciplinary network focusing on narratives about encounters with the supernatural in premodern Scandinavia. The purpose of the project is that the students of the partner institutions in the Nordic-Baltic region
should
- meet new perspectives of the internationally most important part of the Nordic literature, the OldNorse.
- receive a direct insight into active research and through the personal meeting with the most active scholars themselves
receive training for high-qualified thinking.
- achieve a knowledge of genuine interdisciplinarity in a meeting between literary studies, philology, folkloristics and
history of religion.
- be a part of a project where education and research mutually develop each other.
Folklore-Philology is a network of departments of folklore, Scandinavian languages, religion and archaeology at universities
in Estonia, Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Lithuania and Latvia.
The past is not only about reality as we perceive it today. For people in pre-modern times the Other World was hardly less
important. This is a field that has been studied a great deal by folklorists working with records from the 19th and 20th
centuries. However, it played a limited role for the Old Norse philologists for a long time. But Icelandic sagas, and medieval
sources in general, are full of Other World encounters. This has come into the focus in recent years, and extensive research
in several countries has developed that has changed the traditional image of the Old Icelandic literature. Scholars in several
countries have worked to bring folkloristics and Old Norse philology closer together. Historians of religion and
archaeologists have also increased our knowledge of the Nordic peoples’ relationship to the supernatural world. This active
research is going on in different countries and disciplines. There are efforts to gather these scholars in research networks,
but so far there has been no attempt to gather these competences into an education cooperation. By this network and its
teacher and student mobility the strong but scattered competence is presented for students all over the Nordic-Baltic
region: they encounter contemporary research results from the most excellent scholars themselves, from other countries
and other disciplines.

Nordliks-nätverket bildades 1992 och består till dags dato av 32 institutioner vid 28 universitet i hela Norden. Vid dessa
institutioner bedrivs undervisning i nordiska språk, nordisk litteratur och litteraturvetenskap. Nätverkets överordnade mål
är att bidra till att Norden forsätter att vara en levande språk- och kulturgemenskap. Detta är också ett viktigt område att
satsa på med tanke på målen i "Deklaration om nordisk språkpolitik", antagen av Nordiska ministerrådet år 2006. Nordliks
vill bidra til detta genom att stödja och främja samarbetet mellan nätverksinstitutionerna samt möjliggöra student- och
lärarutbyte.
Nätverkets verksamhet omfattar student- och lärarmobilitet, kursutveckling och intensivkurser. Nätverket är även
inkopplat i utvecklingen av fem masterprogram i Reykjavik, Oslo, Århus, Åbo och Umeå. Studenter kan söka Nordliksstipendium till studievistelse i de nordiska länderna och de självstyrande områdena på både kandidat- och masternivå. Det
beviljas även stipendier för deltagande i intensivkurser och andra kurser i regi av nätverket (expressmobilitet).

The purpose of the project/network is to offer an Intensive Icelandic Language course in August for Nordplus students
coming to Icelandic institutions. A special network has existed since 2006 but the Office of International Education has
provided this course (with funding from Nordplus) since 2001.
All incoming Nordplus students to Icelandic institutions for the academic year 2012-2013 are informed about the possibility
of the Icelandic language course in August (done by each of the Icelandic partners).
See information about the course: http://studyiniceland.is/page/ilpc
The teaching at the course is hosted by the University Centre of the Westfjords but the overall organisation and selection
of participants is done by the Office of International Education in co-operation with other partners.
Duration of the course are the first three weeks in August each year.
Students receive very intensive teaching during these three weeks, 96 hours of varied instructions.
Prerequisite for the course is the Icelandic Online course. Student need to complete the first level of the on-line course and
need to take an online exam which is then used to evaluate how student are placed in level groups during the course in
August.
The course gives 6 ECTS.

30571 Teaching Chinese Studies in the Nordic-Baltic region
Coordinator
STOCKHOLMS UNIVERSITET, SE
Irmy Schweiger
[email protected]
Network description
The project's purpose is twofold:
1. to further enhance and consolidate teachers exchange between Riga University and Stockholm University in the field of
Chinese studies
2. to establish and develop a sustainable Nordic-Baltic network that further plans and executes teachers' and students'
mobility, new joint courses and that works on the inclusion of new partners.
The generally very limited resources of Chinese Studies institutions are contrary to the ever growing importance of today's
China and the necessity to carry out the respective research and above all teaching. The project Teaching Chinese Studies
in the Nordic-Baltic region aims therefore at developing cooperation among Nordic and/or Baltic Universities in order to
provide better preconditions to be able to supply this ever growing demand. In general we target at synergetic
collaboration between the different institutions and at better utilization of their respective teaching and research foci.
28
Thereby a greater course variety in terms of type (summer school, intensive course, co-taught courses etc.), as well as in
content (fully equipped study programs which reflect the field of Chinese studies more completely when including different
disciplines (history, literature, economy etc.) as well as different fields and areas (classical, modern, contemporary, Taiwan,
Hongkong, PRC studies etc.) can be achieved. For students this will allow an actual choice in their course selection as well
as possible specialization in the later phase of their education (MA and Ph.D.) in a field that can be co-supervised by a
teacher from within the Nordplus network. In the long run this would also strengthen the visibility of Chinese studies in the
Nordic-Baltic region and thereby facilitate further cooperation especially when it comes to cooperation with Chinese
partners.
The first very concrete part of the project is building on the positive experience of intensive weekly seminars given by guest
teachers from Riga at Stockholm university. Both universities have slightly different profiles. Riga has a strong tendency
towards classical literature and history while Stockholm builds on a profile towards modern and contemporary literature
and culture. By way of teachers exchange, students as well as the academic culture of both institutions can benefit in a
highly efficient and valuable way from each other.
The second part of the project aims at a long term effect. In the long run an even greater variety of courses and seminars,
summer schools and/or joint-taught programs shall be developed to build up a solid basis for prospective joint degrees and
joint supervision of MA and Ph.D. students. Therefore an administrative meeting with first a small group of partners (Riga,
Århus, Oslo, Turku, Southern Denmark) will be held in order to establish a solid network that engages in planning teachers
and students exchange as well as desirable courses and seminars. Apart from that, this meeting should serve as a basis to
discuss the inclusion of further partners.

NordUd is a network of Scandinavian departments, departments of Finnish and departments of linguistics at universities in
Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland. The purpose of the network is to develop the
quality of education at the participating institutions. This is aim is reached by two means: Firstly, the network serves as a
forum for exchange of knowledge, experience and best practice – an exchange, which functions a catalyst for innovation in
the whole network. Secondly, NordUd opens up resources of the participating institutions to all students of the network.
Thus academic and pedagogical expertise of one institution is made available to students of other institutions and thereby
enhances the quality of education. Concrete network activities include common courses, student mobility, teacher
mobility, conferences etc.

Mobility with quality assurance - student and teacher mobility. One of the main purpose of the network is to be
comprehensive in law for an effective utilization of education and research. Student mobility is already widespread, and at
2011 year annual meeting the network structured and shared best practices in order to further increase teacher mobility
within the network.
The network comprises a total of 20 Law Faculties with in the Nordic and Baltic countries.
Student mobility is extensive within the network but during last year the network has taken measures to increace teacher
mobility. Due to limited finance of the network and increased number of applications for student mobility, the number of
grants for teacher mobility have been limited to two grants. We hope to increase the number of grants for teacher mobilty
for next year.
The mobility, pedagogical issues, course development, matter of evaluation and administrative work will continue to be the
main focus for the network. Furthermore the network has started to prepare and develop ways of facilitating the faculties
to share information on scientific materials and publications through the network.
The annual network meeting gives rise to new opportunities for cooperation in areas not yet affected by the Nordplus
work. In previous years the network has worked to share information on their respective websites, information about the
work of the Bologna process and the current and the upcoming masters programs. Through our network meetings we have
personal knowledge of where and to who to turn regarding different matters and it has most surtenly been vital in creating
and maintaining an effective network like the law network.

Network description
The purpose of the project is to develop and run a successful joint study programme in the field of applied mathematics.
N5TeAM - Master’s Programme in Applied and Engineering Mathematics is a two-year Master of Science degree
programme (120 ECTS credits). Students study at two of the five Nordic partner universities in this Nordic Five Tech (N5T)
programme: Aalto University School of Science in Finland, Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, the Technical
University of Denmark (DTU), the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden and the Norwegian University of Science
and Technology (NTNU). After completing the two-year programme successful students are awarded two officially
recognized M.Sc. degrees: one from each university where they studied at (double degree).
The programme takes advantage of the strengths and research specialization of each member university and it covers most
aspects of mathematics relevant for applied sciences and engineering. Students learn to turn the engineering and applied
science problems into mathematical questions, and gain an understanding for solution methods. The first intake of
students will be in autumn 2012. The language of instruction in the international Master’s programme is English.

Network description
The purpose of the project is to develop the Statistical study course curricula by using free software R for BSc and MSc
students at the Latvia University of Agriculture (LUA), as well to improve the teaching quality by means of exchanging
teachers’ experience and developing innovative and practice-oriented methods.
Teaching statistics leads to the problem of choosing a tool for teaching statistics and subsequent activities that require
statistical content. Despite the fact that Excel is a much-used tool for using in statistical analysis however, Excel is not in its
essence a statistical tool. Of course, there are the professional commercial statistics packages like SPSS and SAS however,
those are often expensive and in many cases beyond the means of the bachelor lever students or individual users.
As alternative way for data analysis is to use freeware or online software. One of the popular and most frequently used in
scientist work is dynamic open source programme and environment R (http://www.r-project.org). However, this language
31
requires extensive learning and training for teachers and students with programming skills. From this point of view it is
necessary to develop such curricula by using free software R in teaching statistics that students can concentrate on the
learning statistical principles and analysis, not spending a lot of time and effort in learning the software.
The project includes mobility activity Latvia University of Agriculture (LUA) teachers to University of Copenhagen and
University of Copenhagen teachers to LUA in 2012/2013. This allows teachers from LUA to improve skills and competence
of using free software in Statistics courses and at the same time this will enable teachers from University of Copenhagen to
gain experience in this subject. As a result Statistics course curricula (in Latvian) by using free software R for BSc and MSc
students at LUA will be developed and prepared.

The Baltic-Nordic Network on Education in Survey Statistics is the education-focused Baltic-Nordic
branch of the more extensive Baltic-Nordic-Ukrainian-Belarusian Network on Education and Research in Survey Statistics.
The main purpose of the Baltic-Nordic Network on Education in Survey Statistics is to strengthen co-operation between
universities, government agencies and statistical associations in the Baltic and Nordic countries in education on survey
statistics and related statistical applications. For this purpose, the Network organizes each year in one of the participating
countries a conference, workshop or a summer school on survey statistics. This far, we have organized 14 such events in
one of the Baltic or Nordic countries, with participation of over 500 students, teachers and practicing statisticians. This year
Workshop will be organized in Latvia in August 2012 (University of Applied Sciences - Vidzemes Augstskola). In 2013 we
plan to organize a Summer School in Belarussia (with other funding) and in 2014, we plan to organize a Workshop in one of
the Baltic countries.
In addition to the estasblished series of annual events, the Network promotes student and teacher mobility between
universities and other educational institutions of the participating countries. More than 100 month-long exchange visits
have been made by university teachers, research students and government statisticians in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania to
partner universities in Sweden and Finland. The previous activities of the Network are summarized in the Network website
at http://wiki.helsinki.fi/display/BNU/Home.

Trollnet was established in 2009, created through the merger of two different networks; BAHVAM (started on 1995) and
Nordnursing VEL (started on 1998). These networks have been active in both mobility and versatile intensive courses.
Partners in Trollnet are all featuring in nurse education. The network will continue to be
mono-disciplinary. It aims to increase opportunities to incorporate core competencies from the different institutions in a
joint Nordic work on the development of nursing education. Trollnet works with student and teacher mobility, and involve
clinical teachers and supervisors in collaboration on training of students. This is a field where the participating partners will
benefit greatly from the cooperation. Trollnet also offers different kind of intensive courses for students and teachers, to
maximize versatile learning opportunities within the network partners. Results, feedback etc. of the mobility and intensive
courses are shared among the network, and students and staff of the partners.
During the academic year 2012 – 2013 Trollnet will continue to actualize mobility of students, teachers and staff members,
and also some academic staff between the partners in the network. Also Trollnet has planned to arrange two intensive
courses, Creative Methods in Communication, and Health Promotion for the Elderly.

Network description
In 2012 Nordsam will be expanding its membership and will be including The University of Klaipeda in Lithuania. The
project is therefore seen as instrumental in the development of a close co-operation between the member institutions and
can be seen as a means for intergrating the new network member. During the project we will collaborate in the
development and evaluation of new pedagogical teaching methods hereunder the use of video in teaching and the use of
simulated health promotion sessions. Furthermore, we wish to give our students the opportunity to experience how
international cooperation can contribute to the development of professional knowledge and competencies.
The main focus of this project is to develop the participating Nordic and Baltic institutions' cooperation, curriculum and
pedagogical approaches, via an intensive course for students where health promotion for young people is in focus. The
students will develop their knowledge and ability to motivate young people in health promotion activities. Health
promotion and the motivation of young people will be studied from several perspectives. Cultural influences upon health
behavior will be in focus; hereunder the impact of youth culture, social, ethnic, religious and gender influences upon health
behavior, as well as Nordic and Baltic cultural and pedagogical differences with respect to health promotion traditions and
33
methods.
The course consists of 1 week student preparation (1,5 ECTS) and 1 week of exchange (1,5 ECTS)
All students will receive credit for their particiaption in the intensive program.

The main objective of the network is to develop Nordic and Baltic cooperation in education through the systematic
exchanges of good practice through providing opportunities for bachelor and post bachelor nursing students and faculty to
do their clinical studies at partner institutions, take intensive courses and engage in curriculum development.
During the coming year we will focus on clinical study placement exchanges and intensive courses.
Because of the increased mobility among health personnel in the Nordic/Baltic region, clinical study placements provide
essential learning opportunities for Nordic and Baltic students who may find work within the Nordic/Baltic region, but not
necessarily their home country. The application form asks us to choose between bachelor and master level, but our
network is for levels up to and including master.
We plan to continue integrating successful intensive course material into each institutions' regular curriculum, for example,
material developed for the Nursing diagnostics course which we updated and ran again in 2012. We have also used 20112012 to plan a new course: Complementary care in nursing practice, which we hope to run as a Nordplus intensive course
in 2012 - 2013.

Netværket har i de seneste år samarbejdet om et pilotprojekt med det formål at udbyde et netbaseret kursus indenfor
emnet ”implementering av forskningsbaserad kunskap innom vårdforskning i verksamhetsförlagd utbildning” på udvalgte
institutioner i netværket. Baggrunden for pilotprojektet er, at mere af den plejeforskning, der er udført på området, skal
implementeres i den kliniske praksis, hvor sygeplejestuderende får den kliniske del af deres uddannelse. Under
pilotprojektet er der udviklet en kursusplan med tilhørende materialer og netbaserede forelæsninger. Kurset har i foråret
2011 været udbudt og gennemført på to af netværksinstitutionerne (University College Capitol i Danmark og Arcada i
Finland) med et positivt udbytte, og hvor alle deltagende studerende har bestået kurset (gennemførsel og evaluering fra
kurset er beskrevet i netværkets rapportering fra 2011 –se bilag). For at kurset skal kunne udbydes og gennemføres på alle
netværkets institutioner, skal kursusindhold tilpasses resultaterne og evalueringerne fra pilotprojektet, og det skal tilpasses
de nationale bekendtgørelser og studieordninger, som gælder på netværksinstitutionerne. Desuden skal studerende,
undervisere, og kliniske vejledere fra netværkets samarbejdspartnere engageres i at videreudvikle kurset og indbydes til at
deltage i kurset som kursister eller undervisere/vejledere.
Efter gennemførsel og evaluering af projektet, så skal resultater fra projektet udbredes via en en kundskabsbank eller en
idebank, som et redskab til pædagogisk og vidensmæssig udvikling for relevante fagpersoner og organisationer udenfor
netværket, og resultaterne skal spredes via udarbejdelse af artikler til relevante tidsskrifter og via netværksdeltagernes
konferencedeltagelse.

This year’s project is the continuation of the project: Development of joint bachelor theses projects in the Nordic and Baltic
physiotherapy programmes that started in the autumn 2011.
The purpose is to develop the possibilities for students, teachers and work life partners to work together related to
bachelor theses projects to share knowledge and experiences related to “Knowledge based” clinical practice in physical
therapy, understood as the integration of evidence based, experience based and user based knowledge.
During this project period we will aim at improving the bachelor theses process. We will implement the new guidelines for
the students and work life partners. The work life partners will contribute in the discussions related to the clinical relevance
of the findings from the bachelor projects and to the implementation of knowledge based clinical practice in the health
care in general and physiotherapy in particular. The feed-back loop from the learning outcomes of this project back to own
institution (educational institution and work place) will be emphasized.

culture of other Nordic countries. To increase teacher exchange and student mobility among the members of the network.
During the coming year we will focus on clinical study placement exchanges and intensive course.Clinical placements are
important learning arena for all levels of nursing students because of the increased mobility among health personnel in the
Nordic/Baltic region. We also plan to integrate intensive course, where the subject is Prevention in Public Health, counting
3 ECTS-points.

Network description
The main purpose of the Medico network collaboration and development project is to develop medication education in
undergraduate nursing programmes (bachelor-level), increase the quality of medication education and ensure nursing
students' medication competence in the Nordic and Baltic countries and also increase patient safety. Patient safety is one
of the principle areas and key building blocks of a nurse’s professional competence.
The aim for the Nordic and Baltic Medico network collaboration and development project is to promote and ensure the
development of the required medication and patient safety competence of graduating nursing students. The challenges
related to patient and medication safety are recognized globally and are mutual to a many European countries in higher
educational institutes involved in nursing education. Through the collaboration, the Medico network is answering global
challenges related to patient and medication safety. The Medico network was established in spring 2011. The cooperation
has been very efficient and all the network partners are motivated and enthusiastic about the new collaboration and view
the chosen topic of patient and medication safety to be both worthwhile and crucial for nursing education in the
participating countries.

Network description
The aim of Nordman network is to exchange knowledge and know-how between partners to promote the theoretical and
clinical nursing education and disseminate expertise of various specific areas of nursing education such as e-learning, joint
courses in each partner´s special areas etc. This network provides a joint forum for partners to benchmark and compare
contents of education and pedagogical methods in nursing. Teachers and students gain personal experiences to promote
professional growth and further stimulate development of nursing education in partner organizations.
Nordman network was established in 1995 as a Nordplus Higher Education network and consists
today of totally 5 Nordic and Baltic partners active in the field of health and nursing education.
Tartu Health Care College in Estonia entered the network in late 2007. The network provides an on-going forum for
interactive communication between partners and by systematic development work it helps the dissemination of good
practices in the field. Through the network teachers and students gain opportunities for professional growth and are able
to widen their perspectives of the field. The network provides activities such as student mobility and teacher mobility as
well as joint intensive one week courses and teacher seminars of one week each. Seven course weeks have been carried
out so far and a new intensive course is implemented in May 2012.

Nordvind er et nettverk mellom sykepleieutdanninger som har eksistert siden 1996. Partnere er Yrkeshögskolan Novia,
Åbo, Finland, UCSyddanmark, Sønderborg, Danmark og Høgskolen i Hedmark, Elverum, Norge. Nettverkets
hovedaktiviteter og formål har siden starten bestått i student- og lærermobilitet, intensivkurs og nettverksaktiviteter.
- Fortsatt kunnskaps- og erfaringsutveksling gjennom student- og lærermobilitet
- Fremme kunnskap om hverandres skoler og studietilbud gjennom student- og lærermobilitet
- Kunnskaps- og erfaringsutveksling gjennom intensivkurset "Sårbarhet kontra smitteforebygging - en etisk utfordring i
psykiatrien."
- Samarbeid med arbeidsmarkedet gjennom å invitere en eller flere sykepleiere fra en aktuell praksisavdeling på et sykehus
i vertslandet med på intensivkurset. Dette vil gi kunnskaps- og erfaringsoverføring både overfor studenter, lærere og
praksisavdelinger, om god utøvelse av sykepleie ved et viktig etisk dilemma.
- "Internationalization at home" - ved at lærere og studenter ved den institusjonen hvor intensivkurset finner sted får ta del
i det internasjonale samarbeidet
- Involvere ledernivået i nettverksmøtet for å forankre samarbeidet innen nettverket helt til topps i egne
institutter/avdelinger.
- Involvere en ny nordisk partner.
- To av samarbeidsskolene har Master-utdanning i psykisk helsearbeid. Man ønsker å legge til rette for lærerutveksling,
slik at man kan bli kjent med hverandres utdanninger og mulighet for studentmobilitet og forskningssamarbeid

1: At styrke den professionelle kompetence hos de sundhedsprofessionelle i Grønland og Færørene, gennem
studentermobilitet, hvor danske studerende får mulighed for at afvikle en klinisk uddannelsesperiode i Grønland eller
Færørerne.
2: At styrke rekrutteringen af sundhedsprofessionelle til Grønland og Færørene. Vi forventer, at studenterudveksling vil
motivere til at søge fast ansættelse i disse to lande.
3: At styrke mobiliteten af sundhedsprofessionelle i en globaliseret verden.
4: At studerende fra tre forskellige sundhedsfaglige uddannelser deltager i klinisk uddannelse i samme område.
5: At de studerende ved at deltage i udvekslingsaktiviteter med andre faggrupper kan skabe en synergi til gavn for deres
forståelse af egen profession og placering i sundhedsvæsnet.
Regeringens erklærede mål er at så mange studerende som muligt, skal gennemføre dele af deres uddannelse i udlandet.
Derfor søges om midler til, at de sundhedsprofessionelle studerende fra UC Syddanmark får mulighed for at gennemføre
dele af uddannelsen i Grønland og på Færørerne. Der findes ingen fysioterapeutuddannelse, ergoterapeutuddannelse og
bioanalytikeruddannelse i disse to lande. Derfor kan et ophold fra vores studerende være med til at sikre dem kvalificeret
arbejdskraft. Derudover kan en sådan mobilitet bidrag til, at de modtagne institutioner får del i den nye viden, de
studerende har med sig. De studerende får til gengæld mulighed for at udøve deres profession i en for dem ukendt og
kulturel forskellig kontekst. Den tværfaglige forståelse forventes øget gennem dette projekt, ligeledes den enkelte
studerendes forståelse for egen professions placering i sundhedsvæsenet i såvel det land de kommer til som i Danmark.

Det huvudsakliga syftet med nätverket är att ge studenterna tillgång till nya influenser och internationell erfarenhet från
ett annat nordiskt land. Den geografiska och historiska närheten gör det enkelt att samarbeta om att utbyta studenter.
Trots denna gemenskap skiljer det något mellan olika utbildnings- och sjukvårdssytem. Detta är en viktig erfarenhet för
studenter, lärare och koordinatorer. En internationell erfarenhet under utbildningen ger fler dimensioner till det
kommande arbetet som läkare, vilket höjer kompetensen hos dessa studenter.
Nätverket vill främja och utveckla detta genom att koordinera studentutbyten, både på
befintliga programkurser, prekliniskt och kliniskt, liksom genomförande av kliniska placeringar på sjukhus. Det nordiska
samarbetet syftar till att stärka Norden och Östersjöregionen som enhet i den alltmer ökande globaliseringen av utbildning
och forskning, vilket även detta nätverk ställer sig bakom. Att bygga nätverk inom Norden är mycket viktigt för kommande
yrkesaktiva läkare då de sannolikt kommer att forska/arbeta i en nordisk kontext.

The purpose of the network is to promote, and provide a forum for, collaboration in the education in physiotherapy in the
Nordic and Baltic Countries and international activities of students and teachers. Thus network is a useful tool in the quality
management of the physiotherapy education in the Nordic and Baltic Countries.
•
Based on the SWOT analysis of the network teacher mobility within network will share experience and knowledge
in pedagogic aspects as well as in the relevant discipline of physiotherapy. This is done by tutoring and collaboration in the
development of teaching material and examination methods. The SWOT in annex.
•
The SWOT analysis brought up that lack of common webpage is a weakness. Development of webpage for
information flow, communication, documentation and dissemination of the results is of high importance regarding quality
development of the network activities. Thus, we are able to develop transparency between the physiotherapy educations
in partner universities.
•
Student mobility is intended to bring international dimension to their education and increase the students’
qualifications for the international employment marked. It leads to wider experience and knowledge of diverse solutions in
the work within the physiotherapy.
•
Intensive courses have contributed and inspired and will contribute and inspire the students, teachers and the
development of physiotherapy curricula and education.
•
The Network activity is developed through emails, skype meetings and network meetings. For the development of
the network we have shared the responsibilities between the contact persons in each partner universities.
Actively working international network will improve creativity and innovation in the partner universities. It does reinforce
educational possibilities and increases international awareness between students and teachers. Through network activities
we learn to speak common language what comes to qualifications on the European level (EQF) and transparency of
educations.

Samarbete mellan sjuksköterskeutbildningar inom de nordiska länderna. Nätverket består av tre högskolor i Sverige,
Danmark och Norge. Under flera år har nätverket samarbetat under temat "Lärande och Examination". De nordiska
sjuksköterskeutbildningarna samarbetar genom att samordna och vidareutveckla student- och lärarutbyte.
Nätverket Lärande och examination (Leka) består av tre lärosäten nämligen Hälsohögskolan Jönköping i Sverige,
Professionshöjskolen Metropol Köpenhamn i Danmark och Högskolen Akershus Oslo i Norge. Nätverket har fokus på
lärande och examination. Syftet med nätverket är att utbyta och sprida erfarenheter inom den grundläggande
sjuksköterskeutbildningen vid de tre skolorna. Målet med nätverket är att vidareutveckla samarbetet inom
sjuksköterskeutbildningen. Målet är att de nordiska sjuksköterskeutbildningarna etablerar ett gott samarbete för utbyte av
teori och praktik för att därmed stärka de nordiska lärande- och forskningsmiljöerna i den internationella konkurrensen.
Basen i nätverkets samarbete är utbyte av sjuksköterskestudenter på grundläggande nivå (kandidatnivå), så att de lär sig
om skillnader och likheter mellan de nordiska partnerhögskolorna och därmed utvecklar den akademiska och yrkesmässiga
kompetensen och kan utöva sjuksköterskeyrket i de nordiska länderna. Samtidigt ges lärare möjlighet att etablera
akademiska och personliga kontakter med våra nordiska partners för erfarenhetsutbyte och gemensam utveckling av
lärande- och examinationsformer.

Sedan nätverket startade har ett nära samarbete mellan länderna utvecklats speciellt när det gäller mobilitet. Under
nätverksmöten och lärarutbyten har deltagarna i nätverket kunna dra upp riktlinjer för samarbete och utveckling av
nätverket. Intensivkurser som nätverket genomfört är ett exempel på samarbete som stärkt nätverket. Intensivkurserna
har behandlat ämnen som tystnadsplikten i de nordiska länderna, dokumentation av omvårdnad, kulturella aspekter på
omvårdnad, sår och sårbehandling och den senaste som genomfördes våren 2011 handlade om smitta och smittskydd i

The main purpose of the Nordic-Baltic Dental Hygiene-Oral Health project is to promote collaboration within the Dental
Hygiene Programs between the partner institutions within the subject of Oral Health Science which is the main subject of
the Dental Hygiene Program. Collaboration with other universities is an essential part in increasing the academic level of
the programs. The aim of the network for this new Nordplus program period is to strengthen, deepen and to enlarge the
Nordic – Baltic co-operation even further to increase and guarantee the quality of education. The network continues to
compare and develop the curriculum of the educational programs to strengthen the academic level. The network also aims
to deepen the knowledge of the different cultures in the Nordic – Baltic countries. The network aims to increase and
ensure the quality of education, curricula and examinations by joining forces and utilizing the different areas of expertise
possessed in the different partner institutions. Through the Nordplus mobility and other network activities the students
and teachers involved will develop their language skills, communication skills, understanding of different cultures, ability to
work with people from different backgrounds, flexibility, negotiation skills and ability to make compromises.
On this program period the network aims to include dental organizations, public sector and enterprises in the network
cooperation. These cooperation partners will not have financial responsibility over the project or the network activities, but
they will be involved in the project activities in other ways, contribute to the project activities and have a supportive role in
the network cooperation. These associated partners will be:
• Latvian Dental association
• Latvian Dental Hygienist association
• Latvian oral health foundation
• Turku social and health care department/Oral health department
• Finnish Oral Health Association, STAL
• Finnish dental hygiene association / Suomen Suuhygienistiliitto SSHL ry
• LEAF
• Johnson & Johnson
• Norwegian DH Assosiacion / Norsk Tannpleierforening
There has been a Nordplus Network “Oral Health” since 1993. On this new Nordplus program period networking is going to
48
include curricula development through comparing curriculas of different institutions, exchange of knowledge and
experience. The network will also create a new on line distance course based on a topic: ‘Current Best Practices in Oral
Health (4 ECTS)’. Once the plans for this new course are finalized the network will continue job sharing in this new distance
course by using the special competence of each of the partner institutions and also implement teacher mobility and
student express mobility. The result of the different activities will be disseminated at national and international
conferences, field related publications and also on the internet. On this next program period the network also aims to
include dental organizations, public sector and enterprises in the network cooperation.

spesialutdanning i intensivsykepleie. Målet med nettverket er å fremme og kvalitetssikre utdanning av intensivsykepleiere,
stimulere til forskning innenfor fagområdet samt å bidra til yrkesmessig og kulturell utvikling for intensivsykepleiere i
Norden og Baltikum.
Nordinnett vil oppnå dette gjennom: student- og lærerutveksling, samarbeid om læreplan- og
metodeutvikling, kunnskaps- og metodeutveksling, etablering av felles undervisning og fordypningskurser.
Nordinnett ble etablert i 2002, og består nå av utdanningssteder i Danmark, Finland, Norge,
Island, Litauen og Sverige. De viktigste aktivitetene har vært student- og lærerutveksling, nettverksbygging og intensivkurs.
Nettverket opplever at det er viktig med jevnlig personlig kontakt, og har har forsøkt å gjennomføre årlige nettverksmøter.
Disse har vært lagt til de respektive utdanningsstedene. Det har siden 2009 kun vært anledning til et kort møte i
forbindelse med intensivkurset i Stavanger i 2010. Det er en utfordring å få arbeidsplassene til å påta seg hele utgiftene ved
en slik aktivitet. Det har i tillegg vært utskifting av kontaktpersoner over tid, slik at det er etr savn og ikke få gjennomført
nettverksmøter med visse mellomrom. Det er derfor et høyt ønske å få rom for dette i 2012. Dette er ytterligere aktualisert
siden flere av stedene arbeider med å gi dette tilbudet på MA - nivå.
Nordinnett gjennomførte i 2010 et intensivkurs knyttet til temaet "Pasientsikkerhet og
anvendelse av simulering for å fremme pasientsikkerhet". Evalueringene av intensivkurset ga uttrykk for at dette var et
vellykket arrangement, og Nordinnett kunne tenke å utforme en oppfølgingskurs.

Formålet med videreførelse af denne meget velfungerende partnerskabsaftale er fortsat at styrke den professionelle
kompetence hos såvel nuværende som fremtidens jordemødre i de nordiske lande – for nuværende specifikt Færøerne og
Danmark og på længere sigt inddragende Grønland.
Dette søges opnået gennem fortsat samarbejde omkring udveksling mellem partnerinstitutionerne – for
jordemoderstuderende og uddannede jordemødre indenfor såvel det teoretiske som det kliniske område.
Partnerne I FRIGG netværket er alle aktive indenfor det jordemoderfaglige felt. Partnerskabet vil således være monofagligt.
Partnerskabet vil samarbejde omkring jordemoderstuderendes mulighed for kortere klinisk
studieophold på Færøerne. Dernæst vil samarbejdet dreje sig om muligheden for mobilitet for
ansatte. Her tænkes både på kompetenceudvikling for undervisende jordemødre fra Danmark samt ditto
kompetenceudvikling for ansatte på Færøerne, der vil kunne få glæde af et teoretisk eller klinisk udvekslingsophold i
Danmark. Eller den situation, at en af de danske undervisere anvender en lærermobilitet til at rejse til Færøerne og
undervise i emner, der måtte være relevante for de færøske jordemødre. Dette har således allerede fundet sted i
indeværende år, hvor to undervisere fra Esbjerg har været på lærerudveksling til Torshavn, hvor de har undervist de
færøske jordemødre i emner, der var ønsket fra Færøsk side.
Således er der netop aftalt, at en dansk underviser i uge 12 rejser til Færøerne for at undervise de færøske jordemødre i
obstetrisk akupunktur.
I indeværende ansøgningsår har der ligeledes været to lærerudvekslinger/studiebesøg af to ledende jordemødre fra
Færøerne, som på en uge i Danmark deltog i et landsdækkende lærerforsamlingsmøde for alle tre danske
jordemoderuddannelser, ligesom de fik besøgt jordemoderuddannelserne i både Esbjerg og Aalborg. Dette til stor fælles
udbytte for alle tre partnerinstitutioner i FRIGG partnerskabet. Et af hovedformålene med studiebesøget var blandt andet,
at der fra færøsk side er meget stor interesse for at etablere et egentlig samarbejde omkring kompetenceudvikling og
efteruddannelse af de færøske jordemødre. Derfor blev der for eksempel afholdt møde i eftervidereuddannelsesafdelingen på UCSyd, hvor jordemoderuddannelsen i Esbjerg hører hjemme.
Partnerskabet vil desuden fortsat arbejde på, at Færøerne på længere sigt får mulighed for at opkvalificere og deltids
ansætte en klinisk instruktionsjordemoder. Velvidende, at det ikke er muligt at anvende NORDPLUS midler til dette formål,
så håber vi dog på, at en færøsk klinisk instruktionsjordemoder kan blive en sidegevinst til arbejdet i dette partnerskab.
Endelig har partnerskabet en faglig interesse i at medvirke til at styrke motivationen for at
jordemoderstuderende i fremtiden søger ansættelse på Færøerne.

Anna Granberg
[email protected]
Network description
What brings the partners in Education for Sustainable Development of Water Bodies and Coasts together, is the concern
for the Coast and Water Bodies in the Nordic/Baltic countries. We strongly believe that a good understanding of the state
of the Coasts and Inland Water Bodies and the impact that activities on land has on the sea is the foundation for a longterm sustainable development of the Water bodies and Coasts.
The project is implemented in the context of the Water Framework Directive by EU that calls for management of water in
the whole of catchment area and not just at a country level, since it recognizes that the total run-off from land has an
impact on the water quality and the coastal environment. We live in the dream that one day we may swim in our waters
year around, eat fishes without fearing that they will be extinct, and eat agriculture produce and enjoy products from our
forests with a clear conscience.
As a small step towards raising the awareness and knowledge about the Baltic Sea the SuWaCo Network intends to offer
intensive courses at Bachelors and Masters level, that would be jointly implemented by all the partners, contributing within
their own area of expertise and by spreading this scientific knowledge in an accessible way via social media such as wikis
and blogs.
SuWaCo aims to address the challenges faced by Coasts and Water bodies in the Nordic/Baltic Countries. Through
organizing two intensive courses related to the topic, spreading scientific knowledge in an easy accessible way,
accomplishing a joint study visit and coordinating intensive exchanges between partners, this network proposes to raise
public awareness and knowledge amongst participants and the public. One of the main focus of this network is to highlight
local-regional cases and collaborations that showcase specific actions to protect coastal and inland water bodies from landbased activities.

The Nordic Geobiology Initiative is a collaboration between universities and research institutions in Finland, Sweden,
Norway, Iceland and Denmark all working with the emerging field of geobiology. Geobiology is an interdisciplinary field
between chemistry, microbiology and geology and there is an increasing need to educate students to receive knowledge
and skills that combine these different disciplines. The aim of the network is to run an intensive master level course in
geobiology. The initiative brings together internationally recognized experts in different aspects of geobiology and thus
ensures full, high-level coverage of the subject. The course will attract a larger number of students, well beyond the critical
mass, which may be hard to assemble at the individual institutions. The intensive course within Geobiology combines
lectures, fieldwork and laboratory experiments and will take place on Iceland. The focus will be on the geobiology of
hydrothermal vent environments, because here the intimate linkage between the different fields is most explicit. Express
mobility grants will be used to enable students and teachers to work together during the course and the mobility student
grants will give the students the possibility to continuo the work at one of the partner institutions High quality of education
is the goal, and quality is assured by commitment of all partner institutions during the development of the course material
and teaching methods. Project activities include network meetings, course planning, development of course material and
website and communication in order to develop and maintain long-term cooperation.

ABS (Atmosphere-Biosphere Studies) is a Nordic Master's Degree Programme in Atmospheric Sciences and Biogeochemical
cycles. The aim of the programme is to educate environmental specialists, who are capable for independent and innovative
work in the current and future challenges related to global climate change and environmental pollution.
The programme is very multidisciplinary, involving a versatile education on atmospheric sciences covering physical
phenomena, atmospheric chemistry, meteorology, and ecosystem studies. Part of the content of the programme is related
to the interactions between the ecosystems and the atmosphere. All the education of the programme is given in English.
The approximate study period is two years and includes 120 ECTS of studies.
The ABS network consists of ten universities in four Nordic and Baltic countries, which are among the top-rated research
units in the world. The programme has many effects in the society, including the deepening of the Nordic-Baltic
cooperation in environmental education, the idea of lifelong learning, enhancing student and teacher mobility, and
adaptation to the requirements of the Bologna process.
The ABS programme is directly linked to two Nordic Centres of Excellence, which started in late 2010: Impacts of a changing
cryosphere - depicting ecosystem-climate feedbacks as affected by changes in permafrost, snow and ice distribution
(DEFROST) coordinated by Lund University, and Cryosphere-atmosphere interactions in a changing arctic climate (CRAICC),
coordinated by the University of Helsinki. As agreed with NordForsk, new study modules are being introduced in the ABS
programme to cover studies related to the Arctic environment.
ABS (Atmosphere-Biosphere Studies) is a Nordic-Baltic Master's Degree Programme in Atmospheric Sciences and
Biogeochemical cycles. Currently the ABS network consists of 23 departments and institutes at ten universities in four
Nordic and Baltic countries. The foundation of ABS lies strongly on top research. Currently the programme is directly linked
to two Nordic Centres of Excellence, started in 2010: Impacts of a changing cryosphere - depicting ecosystem-climate
feedbacks as affected by changes in permafrost, snow and ice distribution (DEFROST) and Cryosphere-atmosphere
interactions in a changing arctic climate (CRAICC). The programme also collaborates with a third Nordic Centre of
Excellence, Stability and variations of Arctic land ice (SVALI).
The ABS programme is a pioneering project considering multidisciplinary environmental education covering the aspects of
physics, chemistry, meteorology, biology and geosciences. The ABS Programme also serves as a forum for exchanging
experiences and best practises concerning education development. The first students were admitted to the ABS
programme in 2006. The Masters of Science graduated from the programme are competent on different fields of the
society and have a strong base working with environmental issues.

Our goal is “bread and butter” grassroot student and teacher mobility in physics between a mid-sized coalition of
universities from all Nordic countries and one in Lithuania (University of Vilnius, Vilniaus Universitetas so far in the latter).
This is a renewal of an existing Nordic network. After the experience of the first extension to Baltia, in the future our aim
would be to extend to Estonia and Latvia, but this would need some network support to facilitate a contact visit.
We plan to arrange mostly stays of student mobility (up to an academic year) but also shorter visits (express mobility) to
facilitate students’ participation to short intensive courses arranged in participant institutes. The level of students is
optimally at Master level to facilitate special course selection and dissemination, but also Bachelor level is allowed. Teacher
exchange is based on short visits for special topics.

Formålet med det felles masterprogrammet er å utdanne masterkandidater innen feltet biologisk
oseanografi og klima. Kunnskap om de biologiske og fysiske forhold i de nordiske hav er viktig for å fåøkt kunnskap om
hvordan fiskeriressurser påvirkes av klimaendringer.
Studentutveksling mellom UiB og partnerne Århus Universitet, Frodskaparsetur Føroya og Høgskoli Islands. Joint Nordic
Master in Marine Ecosystem and Climate - MARECLIM er et fellesprogram hvor studenter MÅ ta emner ved alle
institusjoner, og på den måten utnytte kapasitet og kompetanse i konsortiet.
Sommeren 2007 nådde Universitetet i Bergen, Universitetet på Island, Universitetet på Færøyene og
Universitetet i Århus opp i konkurransen om å få tildelt midler til å utvikle et felles nordisk
masterprogram. Bakgrunnen for samarbeidet var å ivareta et godt fagmiljø i Norden innen oseanografi og klima. Høsten
2009 startet vi opp med vårt første kull, og disse skal avlegge eksamen nå til
sommeren. Høsten 2010 startet kull nr. 2. For å kunne rekruttere gode kandidater er det viktig for oss å kunne støtte opp
om studentenes reiseaktivitet og sende noen av våre forelesere til de andre
partnerinstitusjonene. De fire partnerne har sin styrke på ulike felt, som gjør det svært viktig for
studentene å kunne oppholde seg ved alle institusjonene. Opplegget med de fire obligatoriske
kursene får vi svært god tilbakemelding på. Vi har også en mentorordning som bidrar til å styrke det institusjonelle
samarbeidet.

coherent quality services in life-long guidance.
Career counseling and guidance practices have a long history in most of the Nordic countries and the education of career
counselors have developed in very diverse ways within the Nordic communities. especially in schools with children and
youth. Most of the programs are historically firmly founded in the career counseling end education of children and youth.
With increased emphasis on life-long learning and labor interventions implemented due to the current economic crisis the
need for adult guidance has increased tremendously. The higher education programs that educate career counselors want
to join hands and establish a network to be able to better prepare career counselors and guidance workers for the diverse
clients they need to work with. The network will work on two developmental projects and create two intensive courses for
students. Development project 1 focuses on curricular development and exchange of practices focusing on adult guidance
and may result in a blueprint for a joint study program. Development project 2 is intended to improve practical training,
relations with the labor market and creation of learning communities. Two intensive courses, one focusing on social justice
issues and the other on ICT competences will be offered in order to strengthen the counselors in meeting the needs of
those that have difficulty in accessing guidance and are most vulnerable in the labor market.

I denna ansökan fokuserar vi primärt på följande punkter: En ömsesidig studentmobilitet och
marknadsföringen av Nordresurs för våra studerande inom nätverket. Lärarmobilitet utgående från
frågorna: vilka är de olika högskolornas styrkor och specialkunskaper och hur vi inom nätverket kan tillvara ta dem för
spridning. Nätverket omfattas av följande högskolor Yrkeshögskolan Novia (Finland),Göteborgs Universitet (Sverige),
UNIVERSITY COLLEGE SJÆLLAND(Danmark) och Högskolan i Akershus.(Norge)Studentmobilitet för minst 3 månader och
lärarmobilitet. Vi har fått många förfrågningar om studentmobilitet mellan våra Nordiska länder och i denna ansökan vill vi
ta fasta på detta. Lärarmobiliteten tar fasta på frågan hur kan vi utöka kunskapen mellan våra respektiva länder och stöda
studeranden under mobiliteten. Inom nätverket vill vi även utveckla och planera en intensivkurs för följande ansökan
(2013-2014) med temat "exposure".
Nätverket har fungerat sedan 1996 och inom nätverket har både student-och lärarmobiliteten upplevts som positivt.
Studentmobiliteten ser vi inom nätverket som värdefull och därför vill vi utveckla den att involvera alla länder inom
nätverket. Lärarmobiliteten har gett ny kunskap och även varit av informativ karaktär. Att ta tillvara andra högskolors
satsningsområden via lärarmobilitet har tillfört värdefull kunskap som har kunnat användas i läroplansarbete. Den
komparativa kunskapen har fungerat som kvalitetssäkrande genom att vi inom nätverket har kunnat sprida det aktuella
som berör det socialpedagogiska arbetet bland barn, unga och familj. Vi har upplevt nätverket positivt och vi är motiverade
för samarbete och ser värdet av mobilitet och utvecklandet av en internationalisering viktig. Nätverket Nordresurs vill yfta
fram läroplansarbetet. Det Nordiska nätverket har alltid haft barn, unga och familj i fokus och det vill vi fortsätta med. Inom
nätverket har vi tagit del av varandras läroplaner och kartlagt vilka arbetsmetoder vi kunde utveckla och använda oss av
(2010-2011)gemensamt inom nätverket. Vi har nu detta år (2012) fastnat för metoden Exposure som en pedagogisk metod
för att utveckla interkulturell kompetens, medborgarskap, samfundstillhörighet och metoden som ett arbetssätt mellan
inklusion och exklusion.
I framtiden vill vi även ordna intensivkurser inom området. Det
Nordiska samarbetet ger oss möjligheter att sprida och tillvara kunskapen på en bred bas.
Nätverket har erfarenheter av uppbyggande och genomförande av intensivkurser och på sikt vill nätverket betona denna
form av verksamhet. Nätverket har som mål att överleva och utvecklas att omfatta även Island. Därför håller vi på inom
nätverket att kartlägga möjliga högskolor som erbjuder studier inom det sociala området.

The purpose of the project is to enhance and to exchange knowledge between partner instituitions in respect of mutual
fields of interest, focussing on different aspects of diversity in present-day Nordic societies. Troughout ten years, the
Nordpead network has organised two successful intensive courses, in addition to realizing student mobility as well as
teacher mobility, resulting in a close cooperation between partner institutions. The aim in 2012-2013 is to meet on a
64
regular basis, both physically and virtually, for detailed planning for our next intensive course to be held in 2013-2014.
Nordpead is a network engaging higher education institutions in the field of social work and social pedagogy. Mobility is an
important element of the network, enhancing the diffusion of ideas, knowledge, understanding and methods of work. In
the 2012-2013 period we aim to develop both our common and specialized competencies into a realizeable plan for an
intensive course to be held in 2013-2014, involving both students and staff from all partner institutions.

Kerly Espenberg
[email protected]
Network description
The Consortium deals with Transition Studies, understood as the study of fundamental economic, political, and social
changes. In a regionally specific aspect, the study of transition deals also with the European Union development
cooperation, as one of the significant influences of transition among the post-Communist countries of Eastern Europe.
Transition is not a sui generis problem related exclusively to post-Communist countries. Rather, the lessons learned from
the post-Communist experiences might be extended to non-Communist countries having experienced fundamental
institutional breakdowns. The study of transition related topics has thus both scholarly interest and political relevance. The
purpose of the Consortium is to provide and ensure a standing forum for the improvement of teaching and learning within
the interdisciplinary field of Transition Studies. The activities of the Consortium include (1) development of common
curricula and teaching methodologies, (2) teacher and student express mobility visits facilitating the establishment of
enduring cross-cutting contacts among the participating institutions, their faculty, and students, and (3) dissemination of
the result both among partners and to a broader audience, including political decision makers.

Formålet med netværket er at samarbejde om udveksling af studenter og lærere indenfor netværket med henblik på at
fremme forståelse og deltage aktivt i at udvikle nordisk pædagogik og uddanelsespædagogik. Det er formålet gennem
udveksling at fremme forståelse for forskelle og samarbejdsmuligheder inden for nordisk socialt arbejde særlig indenfor
pædagogiske og social pædagogiske uddannelser.
På studenterplan er formålet at fremme mobilitet indenfor nætværkets institutioner herunder primært udveksling af af
praktikuddannelsessteder. Denne mobilitet giver megen inspiration og gensidig forståelse for såvel den enkelte student
som for de deltagende praksisuddannelsessteder.
Det er i dette år lykkes at indgå en partnerskabsaftale mellem UCC, Høgskolen i Lillehammer og 2 institutioner om mere
kontinuerligt at modtage studenter. Disse partnerskabsaftaler åbner mulighed for mere kontinuerlig udveksling. En model
som skal afprøves og evalueres.
På lærerplan er fokus på faglig udveksling og videndeling indenfor de pædagogiske uddannelser hvor gæstelærere kan
bringe ny perspektiver og nordisk forståelse ind i uddannelserne.
Den på UCC afholdte Networks workshop " Nordisk pædagogik workshop" med deltagere fra netværkets
uddannelsesinstitutioners lærere gav stor inspiration til såvel deltagende studernter som lærere og medførte for UCC
efterfølgende udvikling af konkrete undervisningsforløb.
At udvikle muligheder der er tiltrækkende således at der skabes interesse for at deltage og bidrage til at udvikle det
nordiske uddannelsessamarbejde indenfor de pædagogiske og sociale uddannelser. Gennem kontinuerligt samarbejde
både indenfor netværket men også med eventuelle praktikinstitutioner at fremme kvaliteten af mobiliteten bl.a. ved
indgåelse af partnerskabsaftaler der muliggør mere kontinuerlig udveksling og samarbejde.

Network description
The purpose of the network is to strengthen the quality of teacher education in the Baltic-Nordic region through
continuous exchange of knowledge. This can be achieved through teacher and student exchange within established
educational programmes, which offer opportunities of professional and intercultural meetings in relation to educational
themes; as well as by collaboration within newly developed intensive course with a focus on inclusive education.
Some of the focus areas of the network are intercultural competences, cultural and linguistic meetings, educational
systems and self-reflection of and within the region.
In addition to student and teacher mobility, the network also cooperates via network meetings and short visits of the
administrative staff, as well as development meetings. This gives an opportunity for enhancing intercultural and language
skills of the personnel of the institutions involved in the network as well as bring intercultural awareness within
institutions. Such meetings form the platform for reaching a mutual understanding of ideas and concepts, help exchanging
ideas for continued development of courses and programmes for the benefit of the network purpose.
The network is working with intensive programmes as they offer the opportunity of in-depth knowledge and the
67
cooperation between a large group of partners in one project, which in turn facilitates that knowledge is communicated to
a large group of participants.
The network recognizes that teachers and educators have a central role in communicating knowledge and spreading the
ideas of equality, democracy and understanding within a single society and between cultures. The Network’s aim is to
develop well-functioning cooperation between teacher educational institutions in a Baltic-Nordic region with a focus on
developing mutual understanding between cultures and sharing knowledge within the area of teacher education.
The network promotes student and teacher mobility as key activities by which the students
and teachers get an opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge of the member institutions and
the Nordic and Baltic societies in general, extend their multicultural and multilingualon
orientation, as well as develop their professional competences as (future) teachers. The project year 2012-13 continues
focusing on the overall topic 'education for all' as it is recognised as a key topic in teacher education by all partner
institutions, and needs further discussion and cooperation.
The intensive course which is planned to be carried out for the third time in autumn 2012 is focused on inclusion, a
relevant area of cooperation within the network, and seen as an important part of network cooperation, exchange of
multicultural knowledge and effective tool of bring awareness to the topic of inclusion within education and society.
The project applies for mobility grants for the exchange of teacher and students (including
express mobility grants), grants for the projected intensive course and grants for network activities and project
development.

Formål
Det nordiske netværk ”Praksis-Praksis” (nordiske og baltiske institutioner) har som formål at fremme og kvalificere
undervisningen og praktikken i læreruddannelserne. Formålet med samarbejdet er at fremme den fælles nordiske kultur,
den nordiske uddannelsestænkning, den nordiske forskningstradition og den fælles nordisk dannelsestradition.
Målet er at:
•
øge lærer- og studentermobilitet.
•
fremme og kvalificere studenter- og lærermobilitet med henblik på at udvikle almene lærerfaglige kompetencer i
et fælles nordisk perspektiv.
•
etablere partnerskaber på langs og på tværs i uddannelsessystemerne.
•
udvikle fælles nordiske aktiviteter for at kvalificere de studerendes praktik forløb.
•
etablere et fælles nordisk praktikskolenetværk i tilknytning til Nord-Praksis netværket for at kvalitetssikre de
studerendes praktikforløb.
•
fremme og etablere udviklings- og forskningsprojekter, der er rettet mod læreruddannelserne.
Det nuværende nordiske Völvü netværk skifter navn til det Praksis-Nord. Og vil med dette markere et skifte til en ny
organisation og revideret målsætning. Det er også en markering af at der nu inviteres nye medlemmer med i netværket
både fra de nordiske lande men også fra de baltiske lande. Fokus i det nye netværk vil fortsat være mobilitet. Men udvikling

Network description
The purpose of this project is to give a Nordic MA-course to students within teacher education in the Making Professions.
The students will meet the most up-to-date international research and researchers in the field and will have the
opportunity to discuss this research with other MA-students from other Nordic institutions.
Within the Making professions – the fields of art, design and architecture (ADA), the person makes something in
something, using and producing knowledge as s/he works. Teacher education on MA level within these fields is aiming to
train students to be the initiator, leader and supervisor of such making processes in primary, lower- and upper secondary
schools, high schools and university colleges. This is a challenging task, and it is crucial that the MA-studies in this fields are
based on research.
Lately there has been a massive movement towards more field specific and inter- and transdisciplinary research or
knowledge production within this area. To find ways to communicate the most updated knowledge to MA students and
engage them in this research, is a task teacher education institutions throughout the Nordic countries are set out to solve.
Notodden, Norway is the venue of the conference, “Making, an International Conference on Materiality and Knowlewedge,
September 2012. This conference aims to provide an arena for discussions of research within Making Disciplines/Making
Professions/Making Education. The conference is organized by the Nordic research network, NordFo.
http://making.nordfo.org/
The conference takes an educational perspective on these key concepts. Questions asked, are:
How can education in the Making Professions prepare the future citizens to identify and solve possible future challenges?
What are the possible meanings, functions and consequences of materiality and material-related knowledge in such a
context?
The MA-course will attend all the key-note speeches, and both the large panel discussions. As the conference participants
split into parallel sessions to follow paper presentations, the MA-students will meet their own instructor discussing and
relating the lectures and discussions to their different MA-studies.

Network description
Valid-Pippi is a network with partners from Denmark, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway and Sweden. An important goal for
2012-2016 will be the recruiting of partners from Estonia and The Faroe Islands. The main objective is to take on the
challenging goals of innovation of the teaching of values and the curriculum of citizenship. The Valid-Pippi network has the
objective to strengthen the double task of the educational system on all levels: To yield both professional knowledge and
democratic training based on common values (hereunder climate issues and sustainable development). A secondary end is
the development of cross national/professional e-learning methods. This aim will be equally emphasized in 2012-2016 and
we aim at publishing on this subject as well as on the education of values and democratic citizenship.
The activities are network building meetings, meetings for planning a combined course with two intensive courses (one in
Vasa and the other in Oslo) and a 5 week period of e-learning in between, The carrying out of the course and the
evaluation of the results with the aim to implement these into our local curricula of teacher training and the training of
social educators. The network co-ordination institution (UC-Syddanmark, Kolding) has the responsibility of administration,
network building, elearning system, students’ exchange, publication.
Each of the institutions hosting a part of the combined course (Vasa and Oslo) are responsible for these courses and all
teachers play a part as responsible for their own cross national e-leaning group’s progress

partner udskiftning de sidste 6 år gennemført et fælles nordisk studieprogram på 30 ECTS. Tilbagemeldingerne på dette
program har vært meget positive både fra CIMO, SIU og fra Nordisk Ministerråd, og studiet blev kåret til "Best Practice" i
2007. Fagpersoner i netværket har udgivet en bog med udgangspunkt i netværks samarbejdet. Den er udgivet på forlaget
Novus, Oslo, 2009
Igen lægger vi op til et studie, som går over et semester og består af 30 ECTS, og som skal være med til at styrke det
nordiske samarbejde indenfor pædagogisk arbejde med børn i førskole alderen. På baggrund af de ekstra midler til
udvikling, som netværket modtog fra Nordplus forrige år, har en arbejdsgruppe under netværket arbejdet intenst på at
videreudvikle netværket med fokus på både fornyelse og kvalitetssikring. Denne gruppes arbejde har – i vores nuværende
projekt – allerede båret frugt, og fremover håber vi på en større kontinuitet, sammenhæng og progression i det, der
foregår i - og blandt de deltagende lande.

29547 Álka - naturfagene i læreruddannelsen
Coordinator
University College Lillebælt, DK
Birgitte Stougaard
[email protected]
Network description
Det overordnede mål for Álka er at styrke naturfagene i en læreruddannelse, der traditionelt er humanistisk orienteret, og
hvor de naturfaglige miljøer er små. Det sker via udvikling af undervisning og af læreplaner, der tilgodeser en autentisk
naturfagsundervisning med vægt på natur- og kulturarv, naturens kredsløb og de menneskeskabte ændringer,
bæredygtighed og naturforvaltning og med fokus på livskvalitet og handlekompetence.
I Álka sker dette udviklingsarbejde i et tæt netværkssamarbejde mellem naturfagsundervisere fra alle de nordiske lande, og
hvor netværkets partnere repræsenterer forskellige naturfaglige og fagdidaktiske kompetencer. Disse forskellige
kompetencer kommer hele netværket til gode via oplæg på de intensive kurser og i kraft af oplæg på partnerinstitutioner i
forbindelse med mobilitet og det fælles udviklingsarbejde.
Netop samarbejdet i nordisk regi byder på helt særlige muligheder, bl.a. omkring et fælles syn på
demokrati og velfærd, regionens fælles miljøproblemer og løsningsmodeller samt en bevidst
sprogpolitik (de nordiske sprog i forhold til engelsk). Men også forskellene i Norden gør det muligt både at nuancere og
samtidig at tydeliggøre problemstillinger fx. i form af konsekvenser af klimaændringer, syn på miljøspørgsmål og
menneskets forvaltning af naturgrundlaget. Nordplus netværket Álka giver dermed naturfagsundervisere og studerende i
de nordiske lande mulighed for at udvikle undervisning i centrale klima- og miljøproblemer set ud fra et både lokalt,
regionalt og globalt perspektiv. Sigtet er at styrke Nordiske skoleelevers livsduelighed nu og i fremtiden.
Samlet set betyder Álka en enestående mulighed for at styrke en naturfagsdidaktik med stærke nordiske rødder - og udsyn!
Netværket Álka er et eksempel på et konkret samarbejde mellem naturfagsundervisere fra alle lande i Norden. Álka lægger
vægt på udvikling af naturfagsdidaktik, undervisning og læreplaner, og det sker bl.a. via udvikling af intensive kurser for
studerende og lærere. Netværkets partnere repræsenterer forskellige naturfaglige og fagdidaktiske kompetencer, og
denne diversitet kommer hele netværket til gode i det fælles udviklingsarbejde, ved oplæg på de intensive kurser og på
partnerinstitutionerne. Alle lande/regioner er særdeles aktive på de intensive kurser (fastsat til 2 ECTS). Kurserne er det
værdifulde omdrejningspunkt for netværket.
Álka har en stærk repræsentation af Vest-Norden og for at tilgodese dette, holdes kurserne hvert andet år i Vest-Norden.
Álka’s ansøgning for 2012-13 omhandler et intensivt kursus i Grønland og et udviklingsarbejde vedr. styrkelse af
naturfagslæreres kompetencer i at planlægge undervisning om klimaændringer og naturens resurser, der tager
udgangspunkt i børns forhåndsviden og kulturelle baggrund.
Kursusindholdet for de intensive kurser varierer fra år til år, men ”klimaændringer” har været omdrejningspunkt for
kurserne de sidste 6 år, mens "menneskets samspil med naturen" har været det helt gennemgående tema for alle kurser.
Det intensive kursus i 2013 i Qaqortoq har titlen: “Havets Moder – myter, metaforer og modeller om menneskets samspil
med naturen”.
Netværksmøderne er vigtige i forhold til aftaler landene imellem omkring økonomi, arbejdsdeling og det fortsatte
udviklingsarbejde.
Mobilitet spiller en vigtig rolle, idet det styrker mulighederne for samarbejde på tværs af lande og regioner i Norden. For
underviserne i Álka betyder det et større fagligt miljø på tværs af landene og for de studerende en introduktion til nordisk
samarbejde.

Network description
The EQF provides the framework for the quality of the HE in terms of the academic contents and curriculum model. The
customer-centred approach is stressed in all Nordic countries, and strict professional boundaries will disappear. This
project focuses on enhancing professional client-centered competence in diverse client communities within social and
educational sectors. These sectors are suffering from shortage of professional staff and new bridging competencies need to
be formulated. This challenges to rethink the design of education and educational processes, and to enhance teachers' and
students' competences towards service-design approach in collaboration with working life.
The pedagogical approach, methods and activities leading to client centered competence building need to invented, which
will be the main objective of this project. The aim of the project is to promote customer-centred competence building in
higher education. Teachers of participating HEIs together with working life partners reflect students’ work placement
teaching methods and required competences in terms of clients’ needs. Collaboration will increase common understanding
and approach to professional development.

The main aim is to strengthen professional network between teachers of geodesy within Baltic and Nordic countries, to
exchange experience and disseminate knowledge as well to show for society importance of geosciences. All common
project activities will also involve students from partner universities besides teachers.
In our project, we will work together with regional partners. We have already had some seldom contacts and irregular email exchanges. Thus, AGES will allow us to establish core of geodesy with common and easy accessible web page for
educators and students. In addition, we will form a common policy in our specialty following the needs of society in
accordance with EU directives, for example INSPIRE. Furthermore, we will focus on geodesy topics, quality of education and
capacity as well as reliability of produced geospatial data for society needs. For this purpose, we will exchange best
practices between partner universities in three Baltic countries, Finland, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. As our
educational and research directions are rather specific, we will have close contacts and be able to carry out common
activities with high level benefits for our universities.
Invited lecturers from all involved partners will give lectures at the partner universities. Finally, the study programs of all
AGES partners will become more beneficial for students and more structured.

[email protected]
Network description
The primary purpose of this 3 – year- project is to develop students’ knowledge and awareness in sustainable, innovative
and health promotional - related tourism and in customers´ emotional and transformational experiences within the Green
Care –concept in the Nordic – Baltic –cultural context.
There is no one definition for Green Care – concept as it can be applied in various branches of business including interbranch applications. According to the Association of Green Care in Finland (www.gcfinland.fi) Green Care can be commonly
perceived as "sustainable and target-oriented activities in nature and in rural environments which contribute to the
wellbeing and quality of life of a human being."
In this project the focus is to create understanding about the versatile Green Care –concept and how it is and/or can be
applied in practice in the context of sustainable, innovative and health promotional - related tourism business and culture
in different parts of the Nordic – Baltic Region.
Students, educators and the local stakeholders will share knowledge and expertise which enables them to gain emotional
and transformational experiences and to contribute to their professional development.
The project will lead to an accumulated knowledge base of the Green Care –concept which is transferred, interpreted,
developed and disseminated during the co-creation process in each intensive course. After the 3-year-period there will be a
77
holistic evaluation of the results based on the yearly evaluations and monitoring of each intensive course.
This application is for the first intensive course within the frame for the main objective set above. The focus of the TURID
project of 2013 will be: exploring and mapping of the possibilities, applications and best practices of Green Care –concept.
Both theoretical and practical approaches are employed during the intensive course - 1st-year-project activities.
The coordinator of the project is Rovaniemi University of Applied Sciences (RUAS), Finland and the project network
“TURID” involves 7 partners in 5 Nordic and Baltic countries with 20 students and 8 - 10 teachers, as well as 3 teachers
conducting video lectures.
The preparatory stage of the project starts in June 2012 with a network meeting of the partners in Finland, Rovaniemi, and
continues from September 2012 to January 2013 with video conferences, lectures and student assignments. The
preparatory work is realized via web-based learning environments.
The first intensive course (in the academic year 2012-13) will take place in Finnish and Swedish Lapland by the Bay of
Bothnia during Jan. – Feb. 2013. During the 6-day-course students will visit local companies and organizations, analyze and
discuss Green Care related issues with local stakeholders. Students, educators and the local stakeholders will share
knowledge and expertise which enables them to gain emotional and transformational experiences and to contribute to
their professional development.
The two other similar intensive courses to come (academic years 2013-14 and 2014 – 15) will be organized in other
destinations within Nordic-Baltic Region within the overall frame for the 3-year project set above.

The main goal of the project is to strengthen the focus on well-being and quality of life for children under the age of three
in Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) in teacher education. The project also aims to as improve teaching
pedagogics for children under the age of three in the participating network institutions. Sharing knowledge between Nordic
and Baltic settings concerning the youngest children through teacher exchange is seen as an important tool for developing
the competence of educators in teacher education.
The network will continue to develop knowledge concerning pedagogical work with children under three in various groups
in Nordic/Baltic settings. The comparative perspectives can contribute to knowledge and increased understanding between
the countries. A core element will be sharing knowledge concerning theoretical issues and cultural practices in the
participating countries and through a comparative lens contribute to further development of educating students for
working with under threes. Through a strengthened focus on the very young in teacher education, our intention is to
contribute to increase the quality for the youngest in ECEC.

Network description
Prosjektet har sitt utgangspunkt i et Nordisk nettverk etablert i 2011 i regi av Nordplus. Hovedmålet med nettverksarbeidet
er å ferdigstille en felles nordisk studiemodul for førskolelærerutdanningen som har fokus på innlæring av naturfaglige
begreper i barnehagen utført av førskolelærerstudenter og ansatte. Denne studiemodulen er påbegynt slik som planlagt i
prosjekt HE-2011_1a-26327. Barna skal erfare og få den første kjennskap av begrepene når de er yngre enn de er i dag.
Dette ønsker vi skal bli den første starten for barnas livslang læring i naturvitenskapene. Dette vil gi oss en bred bakgrunn
for utvikle og spre innovative læringsprosesser gjennom systematisk utveksling av erfaringer og god praksis.
Arbeidet har to delmål. Det første har sitt utgangspunkt i bærekraftig utvikling: barna skal bli aktive samfunnsborgere som
helt fra tidlig alder forstår verdien for å ta vare på jorden vår. Ved at barna får grunnleggende kunnskaper i
naturfag/naturvitenskap i barnehagen lærer de å bli glade i jorda vår med alt sitt mangfold. Det blir da lettere for barna å
forstå når de vokser til at vi må sikre livsgrunnlaget vårt, og at vi må gjøre noe med det at vi mennesker er i ferd med å
skade det permanent ved å påvirke klimaet for mye.
Det andre delmålet å bli mer kjente med hverandres språk og kultur, slik at vi kan bidra til å skape et felles nordisk-baltisk
utdanningsområde.

Når vi i denne ansøgning også koncentrere os om mobilitet, er det fordi der blandt de studerende er en stærk stigende
interesse for både studieophold og praktikophold i nordisk perspektiv. Hidtil har de studerende søgt mod fjernere
himmelstrøg, men flere har fået øje på det nordiske kulturfælleskab mangfoldighed og muligheder for en højere grad af
videndeling, i en nordisk kultur, herunder også enkulturforståelse, og måske enddog større fagligt udbytte, end man kan få
uden for Norden. Samarbejdet vil kunne styrke undervisnings-og læringsmetoder, sætte
perspektiver på viden, og inden for nogle af samarbejdsfællesskaberne især have betydning for de mange muligheder, der
er i den nordiske natur i forbindelse med outdoor-pædagogik, i andre områder inden for pyskiatri og det socialpædagogsike
arbejdet der er forbundet her. Andre er optaget af amarbejdet med mennekser med nedsat funktionsevne og andre er igen

Network description
Developing a joint Nordic Master in Educational Leadership (NMEL).
The five institutions developing this joint Nordic Master in Educational Leadership have experience providing school
leadership programs at different levels. These programs consist of traditional academic and tailored made courses.
Examples of the latter are national head-teacher training programs commissioned by state authorities.
All partners have broad experience of international collaboration. It has become clear to the partners that the Nordic
perspective on educational policy, school development, learning and leadership need to be highlighted as one alternative,
complementary to the Anglo-Saxon perspective, which tend to dominate such questions.
Therefore we have agreed creating a new master program in educational leadership (as opposed to Educational
Management often used internationally). Designing the program is going to be based on the expressed needs/regulations
as they are perceived by the participating institutions. By establishing this new network we also see that the project can
contribute to student and staff mobility, particularly those involved in educational leadership training programs, but also
teacher training programs. In addition we envisage broader exchange between the educational systems, including leaders
in schools and kinder-gardens, school owners, teachers and students.

DRONNING MAUDS MINNE, NO
Marit Hallset Svare
[email protected]
Network description
Vi ønsker å fortsette det gode samarbeidet i nettverket ved å avslutte kursrekken om kulturarvspedagogikk i et lokalt,
nasjonalt og internasjonalt perspektiv for 5-6-åringene, med å fokusere på urbefolkning generelt og sørsamer spesielt.
Målet er å dyktiggjøre studentene gjennom teoretisk kunnskap om utfordringer urbefolkninger møter i dag, og ved et mer
praktisk innblikk i én gruppes kultur spesielt.
Målet med dette kurset er derfor dels å ta opp på prinsipielt plan spørsmål som berører alle urbefolkninger: hvordan man
skal kunne ivareta og styrke barn fra disse gruppene i barnehagen, gi de andre barna et godt og adekvat inntrykk av hva
gruppen representerer, og spesielle utfordringer som disse gruppene står overfor i møte med en verden i endring og
utvikling. Dels søker vi å øke kunnskapen om den nordiske urbefolkningen, deres verdigrunnlag, levesett og kulturelle
uttrykksformer. Ønsket er å ha én uke hvor studentene kan få være i et samisk miljø og lære ved den tilnærmingen vi
ønsker for barnehagen, nemlig oppleve gjennom alle sansene. Vi håper at det dermed vil være lettere for studentene å ta
med seg disse erfaringene hjem og ut til barna de møter. Sluttproduktet denne gangen er utvikling av materiale som alle
studentene kan ta med seg hjem, spre på sitt studiested, og prøve ut sammen med barna i sine respektive hjemland.

Network description
Netværket SPICA er en konkret udmøntning af Bologna-erklæringens vision i en nordisk ramme. Overordnet og
samfundsmæssigt drejer det sig om at udvikle forståelsen af velfærdsstat og velfærdssamfund, der hviler på et fælles
værdigrundlag, som bl.a. indbefatter tolerance, demokratisk holdning, solidaritet, social bevidsthed, medansvar for andre
og opmærksomhed omkring bæredygtig udvikling.
Målet for SPICA netværket er at udvikle fælles moduler/kurser samt deltagernes didaktiske og faglige
undervisningskompetencer inden for tre hovedområder, der
står stærkt i de nordiske landes læseplaner for læreruddannelser:
• Bæredygtighed (Education for Sustainability)
• Medborgerskab (Citizenship Education)
• Interkulturalitet (Intercultural Education)
www.spicanet.dk.
Medlemmerne af netværket har alle en særlig ekspertise inden for hovedområderne og mange års erfaring fra forskning og
undervisning på læreruddannelsesinstitutioner i Norden. Alle nordiske lande er repræsenteret i netværket fra Grønland i
vest til Finland i øst.

Network description
Formålet med projektet er at videreudvikle og vedligeholde det etablerede netværk bestående af nordiske læreruddannere
med henblik på at fremme og styrke forståelsen af sprog, kultur og didaktik i Norden i almindelighed og nabosprogsdidaktik
i læreruddannnelsen i særdeleshed. Et nyt mål for netværket i de kommende 2 år vil være at afprøve og udvikle nyt
undervisningsmateriale til nabosprogsundervisning i læreruddannelserne.
I projektets første femten måneder er det lykkedes at etablere et netværk mellem 12 nordiske læreruddannere fra 6
forskellige læreruddannelsesinstitutioner i Norden, med repræsentation fra Danmark, Sverige, Norge og Finland. Der er
interesse for netværket i andre læreruddannelsesinstitutioner og vi vil bruge den kommende periode til at etablere nye
kontakter mhp. en senere udvidelse af vores netævkr. Netværket har haft to typer aktivitet, nemlig møder i de respektive
lande for hele netværksgruppen samt en udvekslingsordning, hvor læreruddannerne gæsteunderviser i nabolandenes
læreruddannelser. De lærerstuderende møder hermed gæsteunderviserens sprog, og gennem undervisningen skabes et
privilegeret indblik i gæsteunderviserens litteratur, sprog og kultur. Undervisning i nabosprog i grundskolen er et fælles
tredje, som det er muligt at drøfte med de lærerstuderende, der skal rustes til at give deres elever adgang til det nordiske
sprog- og kulturfællesskab. Der planlægges som udgangspunkt 2 besøg af ca. 1 uges varighed til hver
læreruddannelsesinstitution, i alt ca. 24 besøg i perioden.
Netværket ønsker i den kommende periode at udvide aktiviteten med udvikling af dels nabosprogsdidaktiske artikler, og
dels undervisningsmateriale til nabosprogsundervisning. Der er i indeværende periode produceret en film til de
lærerstuderende, og der skrives i marts 2012 en fælles didaktisk artikel om lytteforståelse.
Et af netværkets fortrin er det personlige møde mellem gæsteunderviser og lærerstuderende og mellem de nordiske
læreruddannere. Det giver anledning til udveksling af såvel modersmåls- som nabosprogsdidaktik og desuden til
sammenligning af uddannelser og grundskoler i de nordiske lande.

Network description
NordETEN, Nordic European Teacher Education Network, aims to develop the Nordic cooperation in an international
context of the education of teachers and professional bachelor of social educators (early childhood and children and
youth), here referring to "Nordic" as a joint description of Nordic and Baltic countries. NordETEN is a network consisting of
the Nordic institutions with ETEN - European Teacher Education Network. The countries represented are Lithuania,
Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway. The network focuses on the Nordic contribution to teacher, early childhood and
social pedagogy education in the European context, through academic cooperation of joint study programmes and through
student and teacher exchange for study and practice programmes. The aim is to give the students insight in the Nordic way
of living, society, welfare state, education and culture and professional practice, and that students from Nordic and Baltic
countries have the opportunity to experience each other's educational systems and cultural traits. The network aims to
have a joint Nordic voice within the European network ETEN as well as to join in discussions and work with partners of
other countries.
The target educational sector of this project is teacher education, stretching from Early childhood Education, over child
protection and social educational practice to Pre-School Teachers to Lower Secondary School Teachers. Within the network
the partner institutions have developed several programmes of a 3 month length, taught in English. In these programmes
the Nordic dimension is central and the Nordic culture, society and especially the Nordic practice related to welfare is
taught and transmitted as a basis for more comparative studies in international classes and practice placements. Examples
of such courses are Myths, Fairytales and legends, Fjords and Glaciers, Danecult etc. A large part of the mobility grants are
intended to be used for participation in such programmes, as it is essential in these programmes that also Nordic students
participate and ensures interesting comparative discussions between the Nordic students and other international
students.These kinds of discussions give to the Nordic dimension a perspective and strengthen the goal learning from each
other. The above mentioned programmes have existed for many years, but since Lithuania joined the network, it will be
important also the have Lithuanian participants. The teacher mobility grants are to be used for teachers as guest lecturers
in connection with these programmes, as well as with other kinds of academic cooperation or arrangements such as
International weeks.

Formålet er, at gennemføre sende studerende fra idrætsholdene i praktik i forskellige
institutioner og for underviserne at formidle undervisning for kommende pædagoger med
fokus på emnerne: Hvilke faktorer, har betydning for fysisk aktivitet og kost og hvilken
indflydelse disse faktorer på biologiske, sociale og psykologiske forhold. Hvordan har
børnehavers pædagogiske grundlag og aktiviteter i hverdagen indflydelse på børnenes sociale
og kognitive udviklingsmuligheder?.
Børnehaverne og de ansatte har en så væsentlig og grundlæggende betydning for børns
tidlige udvikling og bevægelsesvaner i samspil med andre, og dermed også for deres sundhed
og trivsel, at der aktuelt og på længere sigt er et påtrængende behov for at få undersøgt og
beskrevet, hvad det er for rammer børn tilbydes, og hvad der foregår indenfor disse rammer.
Ligeledes er det afgørende at den undervisning der foregår på uddannelsesstederne
inddrager betydningen af sundhed og trivsel. Undervisere fra Island og undervisere fra
Danmark skal gennem dialog og overværelse af hinanden undervisning, samt egen
undervisning på sigt arbejde hen imod at udvikle nyt undervisningsmateriale der kan
anvendes både i Island og Danmark.

Network description
The purpose of the project is as previously, the reinforcement, through staff and student mobilities, of the nordic and baltic
archaeology/osteology subject at undergraduate and graduate levels. As earlier all universities with these subjects as well
as interested parties outside the academia are invited to be part of the mobility scheme. The link to outside the academia
and continued creation of joint courses wherein teacher and students exchange for shorter or longer periods remains the
focus of the project. Gotland University will for this application round continue to coordinate the network but the idea is
that another higher education instution with archaeology/osteology will continue for next application round, i.e 20132014.
This project is focused on student/teacher/staff mobility and curriculum development within the Nordic and Baltic
archaeological/osteological communities on different educational levels, i.e undergraduate as well as graduate levels.
Further development wish to enable also other stake holders outside the academia, i.e Museums, NGO, private
enterprises, to participate. This will be beneficial for the revigoriation of the subjects of archaeology/osteology in a wider
sense. To make this network productive a focus on certain common questions of interest need to be developed. For
instance one problem area useful to all network participants include questions on prehistoric interactions/contacts
especially in the Baltic sea, but also beyond, and how such activities have influenced local communities in the Nordic/Baltic
area. A long time perspective including the participating institutions is also a strong fundament of discussions on
environmental questions and how resources have been used, in prehistory and historical times, in the area. If such
knowledge can be taught from a common general perspective, and not from narrow nationalistic perspectives, it will
contribute to the understanding of the needs for a sustainable development of the Baltic Sea area in the future. As for
student mobility students wishing to follow the joint developed course and other courses of one month at any of the
participating institutions amounting to 7, 5 ECTS would be eligible for a Nordplus Express mobility scheme. Meanwhile
students will be able to continue go for also longer mobility periods such as upto one academic year.

Network description
Formålet er:
Gennem mobilitet at understøtte et udviklingsarbejder under Nordplus Horisontal, hvor fokus er på socialpædagogik og
friluftsliv i forhold til unge i udsatte positioner.
Mobiliteten gælder både lærerudveksling, studentermobilitet i teorisemestre og praktikperioder og ekspresmobilitet.
Gennem mobiliteten ønsker vi, at styrke og udvikle det nordiske samarbejde med fokus på kulturforståelse og udveksling af
fagplaner og sammenligning af uddannelsesforhold og tilrettelæggelse af uddannelserne i de respektive lande, samtidig
med at vi arbejder med inddragelse af praksisfeltet af såvel borgere i udsatte positioner som den pædagogiske profession
Den ønskede mobilitet er knyttet til et projekt under Nordplus Horisontalt. Dette projekts formål er at undersøge, hvilken
betydning læringsrum hvor fokus er på friluftsaktiviteter har for det enkelte individ og for dannelse af fællesskaber. Den
profesionelle relation er betydningsfuld i disse læringsrum. Dermed aktualiseres spørgsmål som har med magtaspektet at
gøre.
I arbejde med unge i udsatte positioner er der muligheder for krænkelse af den unges behov for anerkedelse. Fokus i
samarbejdet er at udvikle nye kundskaber og nye metoder for, hvordan natur og friluftsliv kan være konstruktive
medspillere eller værktøj i socialpædagogisk arbejde. Derfor må et kritisk blik og kritisk refleksion over professionelles
forholdemåder i forhold til håndtering af magtaspektet og den tilhørende etisk refleksion stadig være nærværende, da ikke
alle unge vil finde en motivation i friluftsaktivteter, hvorfor begge dele såvel socialpædagogik som friluftsliv skal nytænkes
med mulighed for innovative processer og dermed nedbrydelse af eller udvidelse af ny forforståelser.
Ud fra relations fokuseret arbejde og arbejde med hverdagslivet som læringsarena og læringsrum og ændring af dette, er
det vigtigt at erkende og blive bevidst om sin egen forforståelse og de gældende kundskaber og den gældende diskurs
omkring om disse unge, som er blevet defineret og katagoriseret som en udsat gruppe. Selv om arbejdet i projektet udgår
fra erfaringer og forskning, som viser at natur og udeliv kan være virksomme og have positive effekter i arbejdet med
udsatte grupper, må magtaspektet til stadig være i fokus og være genstand for kritisk refleksion, så friluftsaktiviteter og
natur ikke bliver en universiel løsning for alle og i alle situationer.

Network description
Projektets formål er gennem bæredygtig pædagogik, realiseret i forskellige former for udendørspædagogik, at skabe et 3
ECTS intensiv program med nordisk sprog og kulturarv som omdrejningspunkt, for således at bevidstgøre om den fælles
nordiske kulturarv og initiere såvel studerende som undervisere til at tage på et længervarende udvekslingsophold hos de
implicerede uddannelsessteder. Samtidig er det et mål at styrke samarbejdet mellem uddannelse, institution og
virksomhed.
Vi ønsker gennem et intensiv program at skabe et ugekursus, at initiere studerende og undervisere til at gennemføre
udvekslingsophold af længere varighed hos de involverede uddannelsessteder, samt opnå en bevidsthed om forskelle og
ligheder i den nordiske kulturarv.
Derfor er målet at udvikle eksemplariske ugekurser baseret på bæredygtig pædagogik med fokus på kulturarv, dens
indflydelse på vors samtid og muligheder for at inddrage den i pædagogisk arbejde mhp. at skabe større
mellemmenneskelig forståelse med vores nordiske identiteters forskelligheder og ligheder.
Vidensdeling vil både før ugekurset, under og efter være en central del.
Et delmål i denne ansøgning er at skærpe samarbejdet med eksterne institutioner og firmaer, for på den måde at udvide de
studerendes indsigt i hvordan de kan bidrage med bæredygtig pædagogik i praksis og lade sig inspirere af professionen og
virksomheders kundskab og forventninger til uddannede inden for professionen.

Nettverket har som overordnet mål å bidra til utvikling og styrking av medlemmenes egenart og faglige refleksjon over den
diakonale identitet innenfor helse- og sosialfagene i egne institusjoner, samt i profesjonenes samfunnstjeneste. Det er
videre et mål å videreutvikle de gode pedagogiske og metodiske grep som bidrar til å formidle dette til lærestedenes
studenter på en relevant og praksisnær måte, og å bringe nettverkets erfaringer og kunnskap ut til et bredere spekter av
samfunnsaktører innenfor helse- sosial, og diakonalt arbeid.
1. Nettverket vil fortsette å tilrettelegge for den vellykkede student- og lærermobilitet mellom
medlemsinstitusjonene, både i teoristudier og praksisopphold, for å styrke den felles
diakonale grunnstammen i de respektive studieprogram.
2. I tillegg til student- og lærermobilitet møtes nettverkets formål ved å tilby et kurs basert
på den felles fagplanen for "Diaconal and Spiritual awareness in social work and health care" i
regi av Diakonissestiftelsens sykepleierhøyskole, København i september 2012. Deltakelse av studenter fra nettverkets
partnere planlegges som ekspressmobilitet.
3. Nettverket søker også om å arrangere et intensivkurs i Finland 2013. Temaet vil være: "Hvilke utfordringer møter
studenter og ansatte ved de diakonale profesjonsutdanningene i møte med individ og samfunn". Dette vil være en
videreutvikling ut fra vår felles lærerplan og vil kunne gi utfordringer til alle utdanninene i nettverket. Dette vil også danne
grunnlaget for en fagartikkel som nettverkets medlemmer vil utforme.

Network description
To have three meetings in 2013 and 2014 with participants from five universities to prepare the establishment of a joint
Nordic M.A.-Program to be launched in the fall of 2014. (We will apply later for the third meeting that will be held after the
present grant period.) This M.A. program will offer studies and training in feminist and diversity philosophy. The Nordic
countries have a long tradition of women´s rights and emphasize gender equality as a core element of their tradition, social
and international politics. Philosophy has been instrumental in the generation of ideas and theories about gender equality
and minority rights. Although feminist philosophy has been a relative newcomer to the Nordic countries, in recent years
Nordic feminist philosophers have become internationally well-known and highly respected. Within Nordic philosophy
departments feminist and diversity philosophy however needs to be strengthened and consolidated. This joint Nordic
M.A.-program will bring together leading scholars in feminist philosophy in order to establish feminist philosophy as part of
the graduate philosophy curriculum in the Nordic academic area.

Network description
The overall purpose is to develop Nordic/Baltic cooperation on higher education promoting innovative processes in
ecological, theological and arts through interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge, experiences and good practises by
network activities and mobility. Our purpose is to deepen understanding of ecological problems from humanitarian
perspective where special attention is driven to Climate issues symbolic expressions in Arts and value orientated
understanding in Theology. This application is related to previous Nordplus ECTA network activities. By previous
partnership cooperation we have come to conclusion that the Climate change topic can serve as a background for analysis
of social relationships, moral and ethical attitudes. The innovative approach is that project actions are based on a clear set
of ecotheological objectives and symbolic artistic visions of environment. The main challenge however is to move beyond
the level of analysis and substantiate how to encourage young people to implement practical actions on personal and social
levels. This year and further network partners would like to turn to Climate problem by actualization of variable climate
change topics more precisely and concrete. This year we plan to address the topic of climate change impact on marine
cultural landscapes (MCL) in the region - like large forest massives, vetlands, unique fjords and river valleys, seashore
villages and farmsteads. MCL testify to creativity, social development, imaginative and spiritual vitality of people as a part
of European collective identity. Unique places of MCL in participating countries will be chosen for creative inspiration of the
project activities aesthetically, theologically and practically. The project aims to drive attention to problem of safeguarding
unique seashore villages and farmsteads in Nordic/Baltic countries. We will address semantic, aesthetic and ecological
synergies for advocating ecoculture.

Network description
Nettverk for studier i katolsk teologi har som intensjon å samordne små miljøer i Norden som der formålet er å utvide
interessefeltet og stofftilfanget til å omfatte studier og undervisningstilbud i fagområder som normalt er for små til å bli
prioritert ved de fleste teologiske utdanningsinstitusjoner i Norden.
Nettverket vil søke å samordne studietilbud innenfor katolsk teologi, og gi felles kurs for studenter fra flere av de nordiske
land. I Norden drives de fleste teologiske studier innenfor en luthersk tradisjon. Det betyr ikke nødvendigvis at studiene er
konfesjonstilknyttet, men stofftilfang og interessefelt styres av den konteksten kirkene i de nordiske land står i – hvilket er
lutherske kirker. I verdenssammenheng er studier innenfor katolsk teologi det mest vanlige ved universiteter. Imidlertid
er det en rekke eksempler på samarbeid over konfesjonsgrenser. Deltagerne i dette nettverket ønsker å bidra til at et slikt
samarbeid kan få større rom i Norden, og for å få det til er det nødvendig at denne grenen av akademisk teologi får
bedrede rammevilkår. Det skjer fremfor alt gjennom samarbeid over landegrensene. Nettverket skal drive felles
fagutvikling (både ved enkeltkurs og ved programutvikling), forestå studentutveksling og lærerutveksling, samt
gjennomføre felles kurs. Nettverket har også etablert kontakt med læresteder for katolsk teologi andre steder i Europa.
Nettverket ønsker nå å utforske mulighetene for å utvide samarbeidet til også å inkludere Baltiske partnere. Det er etablert
kontakt med den Litauiske ambassaden i OSlo med tanke på å fasilitere dette.

Network description
The purpose of the project is to educate masters in a common Nordic master’s programme with the title 'The Religious
Roots of Europe'. Six Nordic universities in cooperation offer the programme. The Nordic Council of Ministers has financed
the development of this programme. The first batch of 24 students was matriculated in September 2009 and 18 of these
have graduated (some are delayed and two have left the programme). The next batch of students was matriculated in
September 2010 and a third batch in September 2011 (more than 20 students in both years). An estimated 25-35 further
students will be matriculated as the fourth batch in September 2012. This application should make it possible for these
students to travel between the six Nordic universities for compact seminars in their first year of studies and for the third
94
batch of students to travel for compact seminars in their second year (an essential part of the teaching in this programme).
The programme is based on a high degree of student and teachers’ mobility. With this mobility the programme further
cooperation between institutions of higher education and research in the Nordic countries and it brings students from
these countries together. We have already experienced this during the development phase and during the education of the
first, second and third batches of students. Nordplus has allready (see below) supportet student-mobility for our prvious
batches of students. An indirect result of the programme has been the creation of a research network (suuported by
Nordforsk) offering PhD courses with the same title and theme as the MA programme. This network includes the six
partners in the MA-programme and University of Iceland and Tallin.

Network description
The aim of Nordplus Conservation Network is to support the field of Conservation in the Nordic countries and their relation
to the international environment. Conservation of Built Environment, of cultural objects and of Landscape and work for a
Sustainable development in the field is the concern. The method is to support the educational programs in the Nordic
countries, their students and teachers.
Conservation of our Built Environment, Cultural Objects and Landscape is of high importance in the modern society giving
increased value to the social and cultural life of people living in the Northern countries. The last c 35 years development
has run so fast and changes in our urban milieu and in landscape makes the cultural values very important to people.
Nordplus Conservation Network has since its start ca 1989 aimed at promoting the question of Conservation of Built
Environment, Conservation of Cultural Objects and as an added part the last five years also the Conservation of Landscape.
The concern about climate issues and sustainable development is always a topic in conservation. As an example the climate
in medieval churches gets more and more humid affecting both the buildings and the interior decorations in the buildings.
The increasing humidity in our Northern part of the world is a big challenge in the care and conservation of our built
environment and our common space. To increase knowledge in this field is one the most important parts of the project as
well as developing methods for facing this challenges in practical conservation issues.
Conservation of Built Environment, of cultural objects and of Landscape and work for a Sustainable development is of high
importance in the modern society giving increased value to the social and cultural life of people living in the Northern
countries. It involves as examples city planning, conservation of medieval wooden sculpture and care and conservation of
landscape. The last c 35 years industrial and social development has implicated big changes in our urban milieu indoors and
97
outdoors and in landscape making the cultural values very important to people.
The higher education in conservation (kulturvård) in Denmark, Finland and Sweden all has started in the last 35 years. The
vulnerability of the subject field, because of its specialization, makes it very important to cooperate within the Nordic
countries and in our international setting. The Nordic educational conservation programs cooperate internationally within
EnCore. Students take part in the conservation field in other countries when doing their internships.

The Nordlys network
The Nordlys network seeks to increase Nordic student and teacher mobility as well as to improve
communication between the Nordic universities. Nordplus Nordlys is an open network between 35 Nordic
universities. Nordlys is the largest network within Nordplus and provides grants for students who do not
have an academically specific network, or to students who want to study subjects not available at their
home institution. As such Nordlys supports study areas which are traditionally less international. In
addition, the network works to increase exchanges between partners that only exchange on a limited
basis.
