NorDoc Summer School 2023: Antibiotics according to a new generation

The annual NorDoc PhD Summit brings PhD students from the Nordics together for three days of science and networking – focusing on Nordic research strengths and how to get the most out of your PhD.

The summit is open to all interested, PhD students: postdocs, supervisors and teachers, to put your research in a larger perspective, get tools for scientific outreach, expand your networks and get ideas for your future career.

NorDoc Summer School 2023 will focus on how we can handle one of the greatest challenges of our time. We will meet in Uppsala and Stockholm, the intersection of Swedish life science, to learn from and about the many interdisciplinary initiatives that have their hub here, several with branches across the world.

Innovative Health Initiative – upcoming calls and info days

IHI provides financing for health research projects that bring together industries, universities, small- and medium enterprises, patients regulators and others.

It is a partnership, co-funded by the European Union and industrial partners. The partnership has funded over 180 projects over the last 14 years and researchers from the Faculty of Medicine have participated in four of these. (see funded projects)

IHI usually calls for large projects (4-20 MIO EUR, 3-5 years) with an intersectoral consortium containing industry partners, for specific topics to be addressed. Call topics are published well in advance so that researchers can start to build their consortia.

In June, IHI will hold info-days where you can learn about upcoming calls, rules and procedures and find partners for your consortium.

Sign up for the IHI call days: IHI Call Days – calls 4 & 5 | IHI Innovative Health Initiative (europa.eu)

The following calls will open in summer 2023:

Dear everyone!

This week was the deadline for submitting research groups to the Norwegian Research Council’s evaluation of medicine and health sciences. With good help from Susanna, 10 research groups/centers from K2 were registered: Endocrine Medicine (leader: Eystein Husebye), Research Group for Infection and Microbiology (leader: Rebecca Cox), Oncology (leader: Stian Knappskog), Pharmaceutical Group (leader: Lars Herfindal), Mohn Center for diabetes precision medicine (head: Pål Njølstad), Broegelmann Research Laboratory (head: Helena Erlandsson Harris), Paediatric Follow-up Group (leader: Camilla Tøndel), Bergen Respiratory Research  Group (head: Tomas Eagan), Centre for Pharmacy (head: Reidun Kjome) and Precision Oncology (head: Karl-Henning Kalland). By June 2023, we will receive feedback from the RCN, and in September 2023, a self-evaluation form and impact cases form will be sent out with a deadline of January 2024. Thank you so much to those who take on this job!

Have a really good and sunny weekend!
