Reimagining Norden in an Evolving World: An Excellence Hub in Research, Education and Public Outreach (ReNEW)


ReNEW will strengthen the awareness, focus and knowledge base at each partner university and raise the potential of posing problem-based research questions concerning the Nordic region. This will enhance the attention payed to the Nordic as a vital cultural, spatial, institutional and economic category, in a global context alongside national and European contexts. ReNEW will institutionalize and combine existing traditions of cross-disciplinary, international and comparative research on the Nordic region. ReNEW will root this tradition closely to established mono-disciplines within each partner university. The key members, with vast experience in Norden related research, will be agents for this process.
