ReNEW is a research hub established to enhance cooperation to develop new and path-breaking excellence in research about the Nordic region against the background of an increasingly challenging global context.

This will be done by enhancing research capabilities – through mobility, exchange, high-level conferences, and education – among six Nordic universities in one strategic and world-leading hub researching the Nordic region. ReNEW brings together multiple disciplines and scholarship providing a new, more collective approach to otherwise existing single initiatives within the social sciences, humanities, economics and other disciplines that engage with the Nordic region. ReNEW is funded by NordForsk through Nordic University Hubs initiative for a six-year period running from 2018 to 2024.
