Two themes: Language in Academia and Academic freedom

This year’s NBM have two main themes. First is language in academia. Oddmund Løkensgard Hoel, the State secretary at the ministry of higher education and research, will present how the Norwegian government address challenges regarding language in academia. Then we will discuss summary of the situation in each of the Nordic Baltic countries.  

The second theme of the meeting is academic freedom where Dr. Anine Kierulf will present the key findings from the Official Norwegian Reports NOU 2022:2 and the initiative behind the report.

Academic freedom was also the main theme for this year’s European Network for Young Academies (ENYA) meeting in Stockholm in May. 

We are looking forward to a wonderful meeting in Oslo this Friday
