NordForsk preannouncement: upcoming call for Nordic graduate education courses within register-based research

A new call within the Nordic Programme on Health and Welfare will be launched in the beginning of February 2017. Applications for funding of Nordic PhD education courses in the area of register-based research will be invited as specified below. The aim of the upcoming call is to support the next generation of researchers utilizing 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 and research ethics of Nordic collaborative research based on register data might also be included.

Each application should cover a course in a single area, but multiple applications for courses covering a set of areas may be submitted by the same applicant.
