Are you interested in collaboration in higher education and research between Norway and Canada? Are you looking for funding opportunities to enhance your institutional partnerships and international networks? Then this webinar may be of interest to you.
Canada is considered one of Norway's prioritized countries outside Europe and is included in the Norwegian government’s Panorama strategy.
Norway and Canada have common business and research interests, including in marine research, energy and the environment, materials technology, and the High North / Arctic. A distinctive feature of Canada's higher education system is an established and systematic approach to experiential learning. This resonates well with the increased emphasis on work integrated learning in Norway.
The target group for the webinar is educational institutions and academic environments that either have ongoing collaborations or want to establish collaborations between Canada and Norway.
Knowledge about the education sector and experiences from institutions that already cooperate will be shared during the webinar. Various forms of collaboration will be presented. Furthermore, questions from the participants are facilitated.
