  • NEONdagene 2017 i Bodø – nye frister!

    Dato: 21. nov 2017, 09:00 - 23. nov 2017, 16:00
    Sted: Bodø

    I 2017 arrangeres NEONdagene av Nord Universitet i Bodø, i løpet av dagene 21-23. november. Temaet for årets konferanse er Omstillingsprosesser – smertefulle erfaringer eller kreative muligheter? Konferansen skal inspirere og stimulere til refleksjon over dilemmaer, utfordringer og muligheter som kan oppstå i omstillingsprosesser. Omstillinger setter gjerne kultur, tillitsrelasjoner og lederkompetanse på prøve; digitalisering og automatisering krever større fleksibilitet og mer ekspertkompetanse; mistillit og konflikt kan være reelle størrelser. Samtidig gir omstillinger muligheter for synergier, vekst og innovasjon. Hvordan kan bedre kunnskap om omstillingsprosesser gi oss mer realistisk organisasjonskunnskap?

    Nå er det på tide å finne en sesjon, og sende inn abstracts til sesjonsledere innen 14. september (ny frist). Det er i alt 18 ulike sesjoner, i ulike formater.

    Påmeldingsfrist: 20. september

    Paperfrist: 20. oktober

    Påmelding til konferansen kan skje fra begynnelsen av juni – husk også at det arrangeres en egen PhD-dag på tirsdag 21. november!

  • Knowledge for our common future – Norwegian Universities and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

    Dato: 08. feb 2018, 10:00 - 09. feb 2018, 16:00
    Sted: University of Bergen

    The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represents a tremendous challenge to knowledge. Most of the 17 goals appeals to the need for new research. The goals, it is argued, can only be realized through a close link between «knowledge and politics».

    When the University of Bergen now tries to gather the higher education sector in Norway for a conference on the SDG, the purpose is to make the universities a relevant actor in the ongoing debate about and implementations of the SDGs.

    We want to show where we already have types of best practice that can contribute to the realization of the SDGs and be an inspiration to other universities, whether it be in teaching, research or mediation of knowledge to society.

    But the SDGs also provides an opportunity. Universities need to change curriculum and teaching, to interact better with the rest of the educational system, and mediate to society relevant knowledge about the SDGs.

    At the conference in Bergen we hope to create a space for broad participation in a debate about how universities may become important actors in the implementation of the SDGs at home, but also, perhaps most importantly, globally.

    We hope information about this conference can be spread around at your institution and dates noted.

    All question about conference can be directed to anja.myrtveit@student.uib.no and kristin.svartveit@uib.no
