Call for Applications: Third ReNEW Emerging Scholars' Day

We invite all emerging scholars to participate in the third Emerging Scholar's held at the University of Oslo on 23 May 2023, preceding the 6th Nordic Challenges Conference (24–26 May).

This multidisciplinary training day welcomes applications from PhD candidates and postdocs working on Nordic topics. The Emerging Scholars' Day includes the chance to meet other PhD and postdoctoral researchers, get feedback on your research project from senior academics, and participate in discussions on resources and opportunities available to scholars studying the Nordic region.


Participants are invited to either present their research project in the form of a poster, a draft chapter of their thesis, or a draft journal article. In this way, we want to cater both to participants who are still in the early stages of a project and to those who are closer to submitting their work. Posters, chapters, and articles will be commented on by senior scholars and discussed in the seminar. The posters will also be exhibited during the Nordic Challenges Conference.
