EADI Nordic / NFU conference coming up

Don’t forget to register for the EADI Nordic/ NFU conference 2017: Globalizations at the Crossroads. The final program with all sessions will be available shortly. All keynote speakers are confirmed, take a look at the topics and speakers.

We will also provide a conference app to streamline information for all participants. We are in the final phase of setting up a film-program – and in addition to the excellent keynote speakers, wide variety of parallel sessions and interesting side events for practitioners, policy makers and researchers, we believe the conference will be highly interesting.

See you in Bergen in August!
