ReNEW (Reimagining Norden in an Evolving World) is a research hub established to enhance cooperation to develop new and path-breaking excellence in research about the Nordic region within a challenging global context. Promoting mobility, exchange, high-level conferences and education, it brings together six Nordic universities in one strategic hub, with world-wide connections. It involves key disciplines and diverse strands of scholarship, uniting existing research initiatives within the social sciences and humanities that engage with Norden. ReNEW also facilitates cooperation and partnership between researchers and decision makers from the public, private and third sector. ReNEW is funded by NordForsk through Nordic University Hubs initiative.
