New Mini-series: A week in the life of young researchers in Norway
Exciting news! We are launching a brand new mini-series called “A week in the life of young researchers in Norway”
The series consists of five short films about a week in the life of young researchers in Norway. Directed and animated by Jørgen Hansen and written and produced by Siddharth Sareen for the Young Academy of Norway, these five films traverse a number of issues related to academic life and work in Norway. The five films address work-life balance, recruitment practices, diversity, language use and collaborative relationships, featuring interviews with researchers ensconced in an animated storytelling format. The Young Academy of Norway is the proud sponsor and owner of the movies and we acknowledge all those who contributed to the series.
