NorDoc – network for ph.d education

NorDoc is a Nordic network of doctoral education in health sciences. The annual Nordic PhD Summit brings PhD students from the Nordic countries together for a PhD conference with interaction and scientific discussions – focusing on Nordic research strengths and how to get the most out of your PhD. The meeting is preceeded by a summer school for PhD candidates but the conference is open to all interested – PhD students, postdocs, supervisors and faculty.

In June 2022 Bergen will be hosting the Summer school and summit. The conference will be hosted the week before or after Bergen Summer Research School (BSRS) and the current plan is to focus the conference towards sustainability and inequality in research. This is in keeping both with the BSRS topic for 2022 and with UiB’s strong position in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals.

We are now establishing a scientific programme committee and we are searching for members to create the programme and scientific content for the summit and summer school. There will also be a committee for the practical arrangements. We are looking for scientific staff members and PhD candidates. If you are interested, please contact us by 4 June (

The Summer School will also offer courses for PhD candidates, and we call for groups to plan intensive 1-2 ECTS courses for June 2022. Course proposals should be submitted to the PhD programme Board via the departments by 15 October 2021.
