NOVA seminar – official launch of the new NOVA cooperation model

The Nordic Forestry, Veterinary and Agricultural University Network, NOVA, is a university cooperation aimed at supporting the understanding of major global challenges in a Nordic context.

Together we provide high quality PhD-level courses in subjects related to agricultural, forestry and veterinary sciences, and support PhD- and post-graduate veterinarian specialisation students and NOVA’s scientists in building international scientific networks.

In 2020, NOVA was reorganised to minimize administration. This webinar will highlight how the new NOVA works, and targets researchers, teachers and post-graduate student from NOVA and BOVA member universities, as well as institutions aspiring to become NOVA members.
