Theme Groups

NordWel activities are freely organised around five theme groups.  Each theme group is chaired by two or three senior scientists. By means of their seminars, conferences and publication projects, the theme groups help to create problem-oriented coherence and continuity in this multi-circle research cooperation.

Many individual projects of NordWel researchers address the topics of not just one but several theme groups. As a rule, theme group seminars and conferences are open to all researchers working within the Centre.

If you are interested in our activities, please contact the contact person of your own partner institution.
