APECS is happy to highlight our new partner in Norway. High North Academy (HNA, http://www.highnorthacademy.com) is a project functioning under support of the University of Tromsø and the Fram Centre. HNA is developing and offering graduate courses in transferrable skills for students, scientists and educators at the University of Tromsø and in Northern Norway with the main aims to: increase the quality of graduate studies in the High North; stimulate High North research output and communication; enhance social interactions across institution boundaries; raise awareness of the skills acquired through graduate studies and about the different career paths after graduate studies; improve recruitment to higher education and research in the High North.
A formal agreement between APECS and HNA in form of a Memorandum of Understanding was signed at the end of September. And this fall we already work together on a series of APECS Career Development Webinars and a Graduate Programmes database.
