NordForsk invites applications for Nordic Graduate Education Courses within register-based research. The total budget for the call is NOK 6 000 000 and the application deadline is 21 June 2017.
The aim of the call is to support the next generation of researchers utilising data from Nordic registers in health and welfare research, by providing high-quality education and training as well as networking platforms.
A course targeting register-based research in line with the thematic framework of the Nordic Programme on Health and Welfare may be proposed. Besides the overall goal of improving health and welfare, which involves better understanding of determinants and consequences of health and welfare inequities, aspects of the legal framework, open science and research ethics of Nordic collaborative research based on register data might also be included.
