Network description
Nätverket önskar sammanföra studeranden och lärare inom trädgårdsnäring i Norden för att
möjliggöra ett samarbete inom näringen även i fortsättningen. Målet är att öka de olika enheternas
kompetens genom samarbete med även genom att nätverket utnyttjar de olika enheternas
särkompetenser. Formerna för samarbetet är studerande- och lärarutbyten. Även yrkespraktik
har en viktig roll inom nätverket. Klimatförändringarna och ökade krav på lönsamhet har lätt till att
nätverket det kommande året koncentrerar sig på utvecklandet av resurseffektiv trädgårdsnäring.

Network description
Det Nordiska nätverket i naturbruk syftar till att fördjupa samarbetet mellan
Utbildningsprogrammet i landsbygdsnäringarna vid Yrkeshögskolan Novia (Finland) och
lantmästarutbildningen vid Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet (Sverige). På sikt skall också andra
nordiska högskolor integreras i nätverket.
Lantbruksutbildningen hos högskolorna inom vårt nordiska nätverk erbjuder olika
specialkompetenser, såsom fördjupningar i odlingen av specialgrödor, i skogsbruk, i hästhållning,
och i ekonomi. Genom att tillvarata de olika enheternas specialkompetenser kan våra studerande i
större utsträckning bedriva fördjupande och tvärfackliga studier. Samarbete mellan högskolorna
ökar också tillgången på praktikplatser för studerande. Förutom studerande- och lärarutbyten har
under de gångna åren också gemensamma intensivkurser organiserats.

Network description
The primary purpose of the present network NORDNATUR is to create a Nordic-Baltic HE platform
for sustainable ecosystem management. Despite of ecosystem and climatic issues being cross-
bordering, today’s management of natural resources mostly keeps to national borders. We aim at
a) improving the quality of higher education within this topic; b) building up a cross-bordering
understanding of the topic; c) educating future managers and researchers that are aware of and
can act on international issues of sustainability. For the study year 2009/2010, we are aiming at
deepening and increasing quality of the recently enlarged network, and at developing joint
curricula and intensive courses with main focus on climatic issues.

Network description
INTRODUCTION TO THE NA NETWORK
The Nordic Academy of Architecture's (NA)represents all 15 schools of architecture in the Nordic
Region including the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning at Riga Technical University in
Latvia, the Faculty of Architecture at the Estonian Academy of Arts in Estland and the Faculty of
Architecture at Vilnius Gediminas Technical University in Lithuania.
The network has since it was established in 1992 created an excellent reputation in the institutions
involved as well as within the Nordic Research Network and EAAE – the European Association for
Architectural Education. Nordic Academy of Architecture is today a concept among students, staff
and administration.
The network is well structured and functions in an uncomplicated way due to long lasting
cooperation with close and problem solving dialogues. During 2007 the network’s statutes and
regulations were revised and a new updated letter of agreement was signed by the heads of all the
institutions.
Two criteria in particular reflect the strength of the Nordic cooperation within the field of
architectural education:
-       a common understanding of scientific and cultural Nordic values, which represents stability
and ability to critical reflection
-        the ability to face dissimilarities and more dynamic factors that changes over time
The learning outcome of the student mobility, the close cooperation between staff and institutions
as well as thoroughly prepared administrative routines makes Nordic Academy of Architecture a
firm and effective base for students as well as for staff. NA represents a sound and sustainable
debate on higher educational policy related to the preconditions of architecture and the practices of
planning in a complex and fragmented global situation.
Student exchange is a well established activity within the network. It has a high score, is run in a
smooth way and contributes to the development of the curricula of the institutions involved. Due to
excellent flow of information, uncomplicated dialogues and the close cooperation the students
easily pick specific subject and areas, which they want to add to their portfolio.
The Rectors and Coordinators meetings have always had a full representation.
FROM EDUCATION OF ARCHITECTS TO EDUCATION IN ARCHITECTURE

Our postindustrial society is characterized by an explosion of information and hence a growing
number of specialists. This creates for the schools of architecture the dilemma between generality
and specialization as well as a permanent tension between the legal limitations on the length of
studies and the impossibility “to contain it all in one head”.
Traditionally a school of architecture prepared students for the profession of a self-employed
architect, being legally responsible for his or her projects. Professional legislation, also on the
European level, pertains to this professional situation.
Educational institutions are composed of a faculty responsible for the appropriate development of
individual courses and curricula that are required, at a minimum, to provide each student the
educational opportunity to meet the student performance criteria as defined by the respective
National organizations and the criteria met by the Qualifications Directive.
The curriculum of a degree program today includes professional studies, general studies, and
electives. To gain and retain accreditation of its degree program, each institution must both
develop a program specific to its profile and also educate students to be knowledgeable and
capable of producing work that can be measured by, and satisfy, specific performance criteria.
As Lifelong Learning and the Transparency of Qualifications are institutionalized in the European
Educational system as the main tools towards the knowledge based society and economy (Lisbon
strategy), the joint NA and the Professional organisations seminar in Oslo 2008, clearly proved that
the relationship between Profession and Education needs to be restructured and redefined.
The aim of the present NA project is, on the one hand, to facilitate the transition from student to
professional and, on the other hand, to provide professionals with upgraded and new skills and
knowledge allowing them to have the best qualifications to address today’s complex demands and
challenges within the field of architecture and planning, in particular the urgent issues of climate
change and the impacts on the built environment.

Nordisk Textil Net söker alternativa sätt att utforska textilens mångfald och nya textila möjligheter
i vår tid. Syftet är att tillsammans utveckla utbildningen i textil i Norden så att vi med hjälp av
våra olika profileringar och kompetenser kompletterar och stöder varandra. Målet är en textil
utbildning med en meningsfull förankring i det samhälle vi lever i. Nätverket har genomgått en
utvidgning och förnyelse och omfattar idag flera nordiska utbildningar i textil i vid bemärkelse,
med inriktning på hantverk och design. Samarbete inom utvidgningen är ett sätt att säkra en
fortlöpande kompetenshöjning och god kvalitet på utbildningen i takt med förändringarna i de
samhällen vi verkar i.

THE EXPLORATIONS IN MUSIC AND DANCE / EMD NETWORK IS DEDICATED TO A "GREEN"
APPROACH TO THEIR EDUCATIONAL ACTIONS, UTILIZING AS MUCH ON LINE COMMUNICATIONS
AS POSSIBLE. THE EMD NETWORK WILL CONTINUE THEIR OWN GOING INVESTIGATION OF
DISTANT COMMUNICATION. FURTHER THE NETWORK KEEPS TO AN ABSOLUTE MINIMUM THE
PURCHASING OF ITEMS THAT BECOME OBSOLETE, AND THAT HAVE A NEGATIVE IMPACT UPON
THE ENVIRONMENT.
The Explorations in Music and Dance / EMD Network, represents diverse higher education
institutions of dance and music in Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Norway, and as of 2008,
Estonia, and Lithuania, and as of 2009 Latvia. All activities are part of the partner institutions'
ECTS course curriculum structure.
Having all three Baltic countries represented in the N+ EMD Network will enrich the overall focus of
the N+ EMD Network even further. In addition, we see the possibilities of cross-border activities
now fully realized between the Nordic and Baltic countries represented in the N+ EMD Network.
One of goals is to return to Greenland and engage appropriate dance and music institutions to be
new members (2010) in the N+ EMD Network. Here at the Department of Dance, Arts Academy,
Turku University of Applied Sciences we have an on going community arts project with Greenlandic
cultural institutions, with past support from the Nordic Council's NAPA office located in Nuuk,
Greenland. So the further widening possibilities of the N+ EMD Network exist.
AIM: The EMD Network supports dancer/choreographers, musician/composers artist-teachers and
students in the exchange of information, in developing pedagogical strategies related to the dance
– music relationship, and overall issues of dialogue and communication between the art forms.
The main focus of these activities are student related projects and teacher/student mobility, that
can be incorporated into the study curriculum within the context of credit points
The use of IMPROVISATION as the principle method of investigation, offers the opportunity to
develop cross-disciplinary possibilities in context of the various styles/techniques/approaches in
diverse genres of dance and music that are represented by the members of the EMD Network.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
Linking Programs/Departments of Dance and Programs/Departments of Music.
Dancer, musicians, choreographers, composers, conductors (etc.) who are interested in developing
live interaction in the area of performance. This includes :
    * Collaborative projects between choreographers and composers
    * Improvisational dance and music ensembles
    * Soloists, Chamber music ensembles, and orchestras that perform existing and newly
composed compositions for dance performance.
Focus upon musicians interested in developing the creative and technical skills required for the
technical dance training studio, and dancers interested in engaging musicians to support the
pedagogical and creative goals within the context of modern/contemporary, ballet/classical,
historical, “jazz”, folk, character, composition, improvisation, and all other possible areas of dance
education.
An essential component and one of the main objectives of the EMD Network.
is to support and develop the live music (practically applied and investigated from a research
perspective) within the context of our higher education dance institutions technical training
environment. All participating partners are dedicated to this goal.
Pedagogical structures: new and innovative approaches to teaching the materials of music within
the context of dance and music education. This includes developing an Educational Website as
well as DVD/media recording/documentation of events.
ACTIVITIES
The activities of the EMD Network include:
N+ DANCE AND MUSIC TEACHER / STUDENT MOBILITY
SHORT COURSES: focused upon live music for the technique classes in:
   * Modern/Contemporary
   * Ballet/Classical
   * Jazz
   * Children’s Dance
   * Historic Dance
   * Folk Dance
RESEARCH SEMINARS: exploring the dance and music relationship in an in-depth context
regarding the pedagogical aspect of the above technical training settings.
N+ SUPPORTED INTENSIVE COURSES: The Intensive Courses provide opportunities for in-depth
investigations and explorations of specific themes prevalent to the diverse interests of the EMD
Network. In 2007 the Department of Dance, Arts Academy, Turku University of Applied Sciences
hosted an Intensive focused upon dance/music composition and improvisation. The Intensive
Courses are led by the EMD Network’s dance and music artist-teachers. There are possibilities to
invite internationally recognized experts in the field of dance and music to these Intensive Courses.
The Intensive Course’s specific venue/site will be hosted on a rotational basis by the EMD
Network’s partner institutions through the Nordic and Baltic area.

HISTORY
The Explorations in Music and Dance / EMD Network was founded by David Yoken, originally as an
European Union funded Leonardo da Vinci Vocational Education programme action focused upon
the “exchange of expertise”. The first action was an “exchange of expertise” study trip to London
England in October 2004 partial funded by this Leonardo di Vinci programme and included dance
and music artists teachers led by the Department of Dance, Arts Academy, Turku University of
Applied Sciences, Turku, Finland; the Kuopio Academy of Music and Dance, Kuopio, Finland ; the
Royal College of Music, Stockholm, Sweden; the University College of Dance, Stockholm, Sweden,
and the Danish National School of Contemporary Dance, Copenhagen, Denmark. The Nordic team
visited, observed and engaged in dialogue with dance and music artist-teachers from the following
institutions: The Royal Ballet School, The London Contemporary School for Dance, Laban Centre.

The purpose is to: Develop a fully joint Nordic degree Master of Arts degree in
Dance Studies between the universities of Copenhagen. Stockholm, Tampere
and Norwegian University of Science and Technology, bringing Copenhagen in
as full partner. Futher we aim to explore and develop a cooperation with the
University Vytautas Magnus in Kaunas. The project aims at moving borders
between disciplines. It aims at allowing students and teachers to cross borders
between countries to visit each other. The program is playing with what have
been strict borders between dance genres and between Academia and the
Arts. We aim at offering an inspiring, broad, international environment for
learning. Participants will have the chance to work at 4 of the most established
centres for dance research in the Nordic countries. In this way students will also work
with teachers from all the universities through the whole 2 years program. Our
students are coming from a variety of dance genres, and for instance both from
theatrical and social dancing.

Globaliseringen, Norden og kunstens former er et fællesnordisk studieprogram på MA-niveau, der
involverer Århus Universitet, Universitetet i Oslo, NTNU, Stockholms Universitet, Karlstad
Universitet, samt kunstakademiet i Helsingfors. Vi fik for perioden 17. sept. 2008 - 1. oktober
2009 tildelt 20.000 €. Vi har på grund af den sene tildeling af midler valgt at udskyde det intensive
sommerkursus til 2010. Dette indeværende års midler bruges således kun til videreudvikling af
studieprogrammet. Midlerne til sommerkurset tilbagesendes efter bevillingsperiodens ophør og der
ansøges således om disse midler til anvendelse i tildelingsåret 2009/10. Desforuden søger vi om
midler til netværksaktiviteter for at udvikle studieprogrammets formelle og indholdsmæssige sider.
Studieprogrammet sætter fokus på et bredt spektrum af samtidskunst, der eksplicit forsøger at
afdække det regionales nye rolle i lyset af globaliseringen. Studieprogrammet beskæftiger sig i
denne kontekst specifikt med, hvordan kunsten bidrager til en aktualisering af, hvad der forstås
ved Norden i dag. Det er målet at skabe et tværgående nordisk studium i dette nye felt, hvor
kandidater kan få kompetencer i samtidskunstens anvendelse og kombination af flere medier,
herunder dens intervention i defineringen af forholdet mellem det regionale og det globale, og dets
artikulation af national og regional kulturel selvforståelse i en globaliseret verden. Programmet
henvender sig til humanistiske kandidater med en BA-grad fra en de involverede æstetiske fag, og
desuden til ph-d-stipendiater ved alle de nordiske kunstakademier. Kandidaterne får kompetencer i
den litterære og visuelle samtidskunsts samfundsmæssige interaktion og tværæstetiske praksis
med særlig henblik på, hvordan den nordiske regions kulturer og steder gentænkes og
reterritorialiseres i lyset af en globaliseret verden. Arbejdskompetencer: undervisning, kuratering,
publikation.

- Examine the relation between art and sustainability
- Provide tools for high educational art institutions to develop curricula in relation to notions of
sustainability
- Strengthen the exchange and collaboration between Nordic high art educational institutions with
departure in the Northern Nordic region
The term sustainability has been on the agenda of major international summits, was the focus in
newspapers, discussions, and subject of quite many, more or less pessimistic scenarios on the
world’s ecological development. Sustainability has also been a popular subject for the arts, with
many thematic exhibitions and even a biennial in the last years.
But the interpretations of the term within the arts are vague, and as undefined is the impact of this
discourse on our university practice: educating artists we aim to strengthen Contemporary Art
education with departure in the most northern part of Scandinavia. In the research and
development project Lessons in Sustainability we aim to map the different intentions and meanings
in the relation between sustainability and art.
With this ambitious project, we aim to provide tools for high educational art institutions to further
develop curricula in relation to notions of sustainability.
The experience and joint venture will also strengthen Contemporary Art Education in the northern
part of Scandinavia.
The results of the artistic research and production will be visible through several forms of artistic
presentations, workshops, exhibitions, and finally summarised on web, in a video documentation
and through a printed publication. The project will finally be evaluated and curriculas developed
accordingly.

Network description
The name of the network is NORDPULS – the network for jazz, pop, rock/rhythmic music. The
network serves at a base for the subject oriented co-operation betwen the the 25 music
colleges/conservatories/equivalent in the Nordic and Baltic countries with higher education in the
music genres jazz, rock, Latin, rhythm and blues, world music and pop. (The similar institutions in
the Baltic capitals became members of the network in October 2007).
The main purpose is to strengthen the music education within the above-mentioned musical
genres and to promote co-operation in the geographical region. The activities to achieve this are
cooperation about development of curricula and programme plans, promoting student and teachers
exchange, arranging intensive course, initiate joint study programmes and sharing information and
exchange ideas. Network coordinating institution is the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.
Compared with classical music, the jazz/afro-american/rhytmic music genre is relatively young
within higher music education. In the Nordic countries though, the genre is nowadays established
and accepted. The Baltic countries are just a step behind and have since a few years started jazz
education in their academies. By the later years reforms of the higher education new jazz
programmes has been founded and new institutions have been members of the network. The aim
is to create and promote active contact between the jazz institutions, to strengthen the quality and
by that become internationally competitive. The needs are substantial and good cooperation takes
place and are successful. Cooperation includes consultations and information with other music
network in the Nordplus family, such as Sibelius, Espansiva, Nordtrad and EMD.
Compared with other countries in Europe, our region is on the forefront with introducing new
genres in higher music education as for example jazz. With the Nordic cooperation and Nordpuls as
a role model, a new jazz platform has recently been created in the Association of European
Conservatories of Music (www.aecinfo.org). At the yearly European jazz meeting this year in
Amsterdam in February 2009, the Nordic and Baltic institutions receivie lot of questions about our
activities, especially the joint Nordic jazz Master Programme, NOMAZZ. It is still obvious that our
region is leading in the field and the quality of the jazz education is very high and innovative in our
countries and that with
The Association of Nordic Music Academies (ANMA), www.nkinfo.org, is the cooperative body of the
rectors/heads of the over 30 higher music education institutions in the Nordic area since over 20
years. The international coordinators’ participating is an important part of ANMA’s meetings. At the
general meeting 2009, in February in Copenhagen, the rectors were informed of the new Nordplus
frame programme as well as the devolvement of the joint Nordic study programmes as NOMAZZ.
The question of including the Baltic States in ANMA was also a topic for the discussions as the
Nordic cooperation from 2009 includes our neighbours.
The Nordpuls network has administrated the support received by Nordplus grants for exchange for
teachers and students. Each participating institution has a system for teachers and students to
apply for a period of Nordic exchange. The network coordinator request each year, in January,
reports/institutional applications for how many exchange grants each institution estimates in the
coming year. These applications form the base for the yearly network application for exchange to
Nordplus (this application). After the local admissions are set at the participating institutions
(usually in May each year) send a new report to the network co-ordinator based on the final
admissions. When the network coordinator receives answer on the Nordplus application (usually
May/June) the working group of the network with one representative from each country decides on
the final distribution of the grants and the local institutions can submit the results to the students
and teachers before the old academic year comes to end. The grants are transferred to each
institution, which then pay the students in the beginning of their exchange period and the teachers
in connection with their (shorter) exchanges. After the academic year has come to its end each
participating institution has to report to the network coordinator the use of the grants and the
results/experiences of the exchanges. These are then discussed at the yearly network meetings
and later included in the network report to Nordplus from the network co-ordinator. The timetable
for the described procedure is printed and distributed yearly to the participating institutions and
enclosed with this application. It is also published at the network home page and continuously
updated. An information brochure in paper form is also distributed within the network.
At the annual network meetings the participants are updated on the latest development of the
Nordplus programme, the priorities of the year, etc. In October 2007 in Aarhus, at a joint meeting
with the classical music networks, the new Nordplus frame programme was presented and also the
three Baltic countries participated for the first time. As most of the participants in the Nordpuls
meetings are teachers and heads of jazz departments, thus academic staff, the topics of the
discussions are for example quality of the exchanges, level of courses and how to give credits for
studies at other institutions, etc. (At the network meetings of the classical networks most
participants are administrators.)
An important part of the network meetings are a presentation of the host institution. In this way
the discussions on organizational matters, quality and development of curricula are always current
topics. The result is updated information on and knowledge of the participating institutions,
especially for new participants/teachers/administrators, which promotes the exchange activities.

Network description
Our NordBiz Network has existed for more than 12 years with successful student and staff
exchange, the development of a double degree program (BusinessPlus) and our successful
intensive course: Nordic Baltic Perspectives on Marketing. This course is a great opportunity to
learn marketing and to get a true Nordic-Baltic business culture understanding.
Our main priority is to assure the quality of all our activities within our NordBiz-network. We make
sure that the participating universities will support our work. Therefore it is important that our
“controllers” – the Deans, at our universities have the possibility to meet and discuss our work.
One part of the Deans’ quality discussion is to accept a new partner – ISM University of
Management and Economics in Lithuania. This partner can also contribute to the enlargement and
new dimensions of our network. We also see the possibility of a quality rise, if the Deans accept it,
our plan to develop a new course discussing climatic issues: Sustainability of Energy Systems from
a Business Perspective.
The goals of our NordBiz network are to to develop and promote cross-cultural and interdisciplinary
courses, academic programs and add value to existing education responsive to a changing global
environment. We want to facilitate co-operation between universities and enterprises and improve
the exchange of information and know-how. We want to help create distinct competitive
advantages for operators/business and enrich the overall image and vitality of the community. The
purpose is also to promote activities which enable the exchange of experience and information
regarding higher education regulations and policies among its members.
We want to enhance the opportunities for educational staff development through staff mobility and
will assist university policy makers in developing the academic culture of their institutions. Our
main objective is to promote activities that will enhance the opportunities for student mobility.

Network description
The overall aim of the project is to develop a curriculum for present and future business leaders
and managers. The curriculum must address a factual need for high-quality education programmes
on management of environmental and ethical responsibilities of business and, in this way,
contribute to raising business professionals’ awareness of potential business risks while at the
same time developing their competences for responsible leadership as well as skills to design and
manage organizational processes which ensure sustainable development of businesses and
societies in which they operate.
The objectives of the project are as follows:
1) increase the quality of teaching of environmental and ethical aspects in business and diminish
indifference, skepticism and, in some societies, even cynicism towards them, which often results
from poor and out of date teaching approaches;
2) highlight the importance of the context in the curricula of education programmes for business
leaders and managers;
3) prepare an interdisciplinary curriculum which covers acute topics related to environmental and
ethical competence in business management and leadership, i.e. a) climate change, renewable
energy, waste utilization, less polluting techniques and energy saving instruments; b) gender and
equality issues, and c) responsible leadership and ethical human resource management to be used
in an ICT-based advanced (Master or a relevant level) course of the partner institutions;
4) prepare cases that cover the topics of environmental and ethical issues in business leadership
and management;
5) expand networking among higher education institutions in the Baltic and Scandinavian countries
and obtain synergy from the expertise owned by each partner in business education.

The purpose of the project is to host an international intensive week with students and academic
staff representing the Nordic and Baltic Countries. The subject of the conference shall be
“Internationalization in Northern Europe and the Baltic Sea Region”. The duration of the conference
shall be one week – an intensive week, with participants from University of Southern Denmark,
Gotland University/Sweden, HAMK University of Applied Sciences/Finland and Stockholm School of
Economics in Riga/Latvia. The conferences will be consisting of presentations given by students,
lectures given by academic staff as well as specialists from relevant organizations. To extend the
impact of the event, the intensive week shall be accompanied by preparatory and post-processing
activities on international level. In addition, since the conference includes students and staff
participation, it should foster the cooperation between the participating institutions and increase
the exchange periods. During the previous intensive week in Denmark it has been decided that
each year the event will be hosted in another host country. The next location of the intensive week
in 2009 will be decided in the preparatory meeting in Riga, which will take place in March 2009.
The above described operation model has been successful in use during the last three year. The
activities within this network have considerablyt increased. For now, priority will be given to
include the new Latvian partner SSE Riga in the network. There are several aims of the actual
conference. First, the aim is to increase the awareness and understanding of the participants with
respect to the Nordic and Baltic dimensions of business. Second, the students will be trained in
preparing, organizing and participating in an international meeting/conference at a high
professional and academic level. In addition, the intention is to broaden the participants’ minds
about how internationalization affects societies, markets and companies in Northern Europe.

Network description
The Nordic and Baltic Business Innovation network consists of five universities in Finland,
Denmark, Norway and Lithuania. The aim of the network is to develop innovative and practice-
oriented methods for learning and teaching of future business managers for the Nordic and Baltic
businesses. There is a need for competent managers who have knowledge and skills to operate in
the Nordic and Baltic business environment. The network organises mobility of competent teachers
and gives through mobility the possibility to students to take part in teaching or in practical
placements and at the same time gather knowledge about Nordic and Baltic market areas and
region while staying in other universities of the network or in business companies in the mentioned
countries. The aim of the network is to promote Nordic and Baltic cultural understanding and
understanding of businesses and business cultures of this region and to strengthen Nordic-Baltic
relations. The aim is also to make students aware of their own linguistic background and to
increase understanding for local languages as the basis of thinking and at the same time to
remove obstacles to business by using common language in communication. Intensive course
Business in the Nordic and Baltic Countries and virtual courses, for example Leadership course are
examples of curriculum development projects. Express mobility of students is used to enable
students of virtual courses to meet with each other and work together in the end of the virtual
course. High quality of education is the goal and quality assurance is guaranteed by commitment
of all partner institutions, by comparing the study programmes and their content and learning and
teaching methods. Network activities include network meetings, development of the website for
the network and communication in order to maintain and develop long-term cooperation. The
multidisciplinary network disseminates the results of activities by using websites, seminars,
conferences and other available opportunities.

Network description
The target of the project proposal “QA in HE – Quality Assurance in Higher Education” is to
promote the quality assurance strategies and methods in higher education institutions by
developing innovative models of quality assessment that contribute to the comparability of
educational quality in HEIs. The main goal of the project is to develop and implement a self-
evaluation model in the participating higher education institutions to support their quality
assurance work and continuous curriculum development in the field of engineering science. The
project aims at defining the self-evaluation process in HEIs and developing new tools for
supporting the process step model of quality assurance work. Based on these new developed
methods, the quality of education is monitored and actively improved in HEIs. Furthermore, the
project aims at developing cross-evaluation methods for international use.
The project target is to construct a framework of quality assurance that promotes the international
comparability of educational quality. The quality assurance models are established, implemented
and further developed in the participating degree programmes of the partnering HEIs. The main
purpose of this international cross-evaluation model is to provide the HEIs with new methods and
tools of international quality assurance work in close co-operation with other HEIs. The cross-
evaluation between HEIs promotes both the quality assurance work and the quality of education.
Thus, the project aims at creating a circle of constant quality assurance that fosters active
development of higher education. In this cyclic model, the quality of education is assessed by
using self-evaluation and cross-evaluation methods. Based on the evaluation results, the
curriculum development processes are implemented in order to promote educational quality. The
curriculum development is implemented based on the CDIO framework, which introduces an
innovative model of educational development in the engineering field.
Since the quality assurance in HEIs is closely related to curriculum development, the project
initiative aims also at establishing new methods of curriculum development through quality
assessment. As one element of the quality assurance process, the partnering HEIs aim at
evaluating and further developing the curricula and teaching methods of engineering education,
which further promotes the educational quality. The cross-evaluation model, which is established
by the partnering HEIs, promotes both self-assessment and peer evaluation of educational quality
in the partnering degree programmes. Since the curriculum development is implemented in higher
education institutions nowadays by using various strategies and standards, the project also aims at
finding standards and principles for evaluating curriculum development processes in HEIs.
The project focus is on engineering education, and thus the participating HEIs and degree
programmes represent engineering field. Although the educational challenges nowadays concern
higher education in general level, especially engineering education is challenged to develope new
methods of quality assurance work in order to produce experts that meet the growing demands of
working life. However, the project results can be further developed and adapted also to other
educational fields by refining the methods and tools produced during this project.
In Nordic level, the project also aims at strengthening the co-operation of HEIs in quality
assurance of education and disseminating the best practices of quality assurance working methods
and educational solutions between HEIs. The international cross-evaluation model, by definition,
promotes cooperation and comparability of educational quality in Nordic and international level.
The project results are introduced and disseminated to other HEIs in order to further improve the
developed model and to promote the international comparability of educational quality. Thus, the
project proposal will contribute to the international quality of education in HEIs by introducing
innovative solutions for both evaluating and further improving the quality assurance of education
in close co-operation with other higher education institutions.

in order to continue on the three year expanded plan with three different intensive courses - all of
them with the same heading : Democracy in music education form a Nordic perspective , but each
year and course with a different focus and subtitle. This year we want to focus upon social justice
and inclusion in music education. Through the different activities we want to strenghten the Nordic
dimention within science of music education and contribute to qualitative development by using
the different qualifications all the institutions in the network can offer. The target group of
students will benefit from a programme with a broader perspective and a wider understanding
than each institution in their own can provide.

Network description
The purpose of this project is to design and implement an intensive Nordic-Baltic 7,5 ECTS higher
education course “Applied behaviour analysis, early intervention and autism” which will focus on
disseminating the best available research i.e. “evidence based and best practice” as it applies to
autism and early intervention. The students eligible for the course will be professionals with
different educational backgrounds (e.g.. educators, special educators, psychologists, social work,
speech language therapists/ pathologists, physiotherapists), who are enrolled in an advanced level
programme at one of the higher education institutions. The Nordic- Baltic collaboration aims at
significantly improving the quality and content of higher education courses for professionals with
different educational backgrounds who are involved in services and supports which either directly
or indirectly influence children with autism and their families. Thus, a long term aim of the project
is to facilitate the improvement of developmental outcomes for pre-school children with autism in
participating countries. Another long term goal of this project is to establish the foundation for a
future joint masters program including student exchange and cross-cultural research projects.

Network description
Det overordnede mål for Àlka er at styrke naturfagene i en humanistisk orienteret
læreruddannelse.
Det sker via udvikling af undervisning og af læreplaner, der tilgodeser en autentisk
naturfagsundervisning med vægt på natur- og kulturarv, naturens kredsløb og de menneskeskabte
ændringer, bæredygtighed og naturforvaltning og med fokus på livskvalitet og handlekompetence.
Dette udviklingsarbejde sker i et netværks-samarbejde mellem naturfagslærere fra alle de
nordiske lande, og hvor netværkets partnere repræsenterer forskellige naturfaglige og
fagdidaktiske kompetencer. Disse forskellige kompetencer kommer hele netværket til gode via
oplæg på de intensive kurser, oplæg på partnerinstitutioner i forbindelse med mobilitet og i kraft af
fælles udviklingsarbejde. Netop samarbejdet i nordisk regi byder på helt særlige muligheder, bl.a.
omkring et fælles syn på demokrati og velfærd, regionens fælles miljøproblemer og
løsningsmodeller samt en bevidst sprogpolitik (de nordiske sprog i forhold til engelsk). Men
forskellene i Norden byder desuden på muligheder for helt konkret at se forskellige
problemstillinger i forbindelse med miljøproblemer, konsekvenser af klimaændringer og
menneskets forvaltning af naturgrundlagett.
Nordplus netværket Àlka giver dermed naturfagsundervisere og studerende i de nordiske lande
mulighed for at udvikle undervisning i centrale klima- og miljøproblemer set ud fra et både lokalt,
regionalt og globalt perspektiv, men med sigte på elevernes livsduelighed nu og i fremtiden.

Network description
Valid-Kanklès has an offspring in a specific understanding of the teaching of values:
Post WW2 and certainly after the changes in Europe after 1989 many of the ideas of learning,
socialization and values can be seen as a reaction upon the misuse of pedagogies performed in the
name of authoritarian and even dictatorial governments. The first and most important aim of Valid-
Kanklès will remain to create a meaningful platform for the students’ involvement in the teaching
of values and thus creating a socio-cultural consciousness on the importance of citizenship as end
and means in a democratic educational institution may it be a nursery, a school or a reformatory
institution.
We will plan the form and content for a course in moral education and democratic values inspired
from by the UNESCO structure on how one handles permanent social changes. The course will
build on the development of personal and collective competences that are democratic,
communicative, intercultural and vigorous.The course is to be taken an integrated part of the
participants’ studies at their own University colleges/Universities.

Nettverket "Barnekultur og barnekulturelle utrykk i Norden" er i gang med et nytt felles
studieprogram knyttet til ”Miljøoppdragelse, språk og estetiske læreprosesser”. Nettverket består
av Høgskolen i Vestfold, Norge, Frøbelseminaret, Danmark, Åbo Akademi, Finland og Føroya
Læerskoli, Færøyene. De samarbeidende skoler har jobbet sammen i nettverket i flere år, og har
de siste 3 årene gjennomført et felles nordisk studieprogram på 30 ECTS, og er nå i gang med
første runde av studiet "Miljøoppdragelse, språk og estetiske lærerprosesser". Tilbakemeldingene
på tidligere programmer har vært meget positive både fra CIMO, SIU og fra Nordisk Ministerråd,
og studiet ble kåret til "Best Practice" i 2007. På bakgrunn av suksessen ønsket man å utvikle et
nytt felles studieprogram, og det er runde 2 det nå søkes støtte til. Også for 2010 legger man opp
til et studium som går over ett semester og består av 30 ECTS, og det skal være med på å styrke
det nordiske samarbeidet innenfor pedagogisk arbeid med barn under skolealder.
Barndom og oppdragelse knyttet til miljøets betydning i de Nordiske land gjennomsyrer innholdet i
studiet.

Purpose of the project:
 The primary objective of this 3 - year period is the development of students knowledge and
interest in environment and sustainable development through an interdisciplinary collaboration
between the different network universities/colleges in the Nordic and Baltic regions.
 The focus will be environmental problems in the Baltic Sea and how the different countries are
tackling these problems. There will be a particular focus on how tourism affects global warming
and what can be done to reduce this in the participating countries. By putting the focus on the
environment / global warming and sustainable development in the various intensive courses, this
could lead to an increased emphasis on sustainable development in the various study programs.

Network description
The Network strives to a well-functioning and active cooperation between the partner institutions
in the field of teacher education. The Network’s aim is to develop the teacher education system
and teachership by giving the teachers and student teachers a chance to acquaint themselves with
another culture, language and the educational system in the Nordic or Baltic member institutions.
By means of a Nordplus mobility period, the project enables the teachers and students to get more
in-depth knowledge of the nearby regions and enhance their intercultural and language skills.
During this project period, the Network will concentrate on Education for Sustainable Development
(ESD). Intercultural and citizenship education are the guiding themes of the cooperation. Besides
student and teacher mobility, the Network also cooperates via network meetings and short visits of
the administrative personnel. This year, the project put an emphasis in strengthening its ties with
the Baltic institutions by promoting mobilities especially between the Nordic and Baltic institutions.

Kvarkenbron är ett öppet nordplusnätverk som funnits mellan högskolorna i Vasa och Umeå sedan
år 2003. Projektet startade som en avnämare av ett annat projekt, Unizon, som hade till uppgift
att främja samarbetet mellan högkskolorna i Vasa och Umeå oberoende av språk, ämnesinriktning
eller
hemhögskola.
Kvarkenbron har bidragit till mobiliteten mellan Vasa och Umeå och även skapat nya kontakter.

- to promote and develop teaching methods and teacher training for sustainable development
(including climate change)
- to encourage student and teacher exchange, in order to gain and share knowledge about how
sustainable development is dealt with in the Nordic countries
- to educate environmentally aware, critically thinking and creative teachers, able to teach for
sustainable development.
The Nordic countries are known for its pure nature and its people caring about it. The utmost
purpose of our network is to make sure that this image is actually kept up to. We want to see
teachers of all subjects in our countries as forerunners in this increasingly important dimension of
education. Through learning from each other we will also be able to strengthen the Nordic
collaboration in the environmental education field in the future and clear ground for further
networking and lifelong learning among our countries teachers and pupils.

Mobilitetsprogrammet til NordFo gjelder utveksling av studenter og lærere mellom Finland,
Danmark, Norge, Sverige, Sàpmi, Island, Færøyene og Grønland. De som har deltatt i dette
programmet har fått gode erfaringer og gode personlige og faglige samarbeidskontakter.
Erfaringer som kan nyttes som lærerutdanner, senere studium og ved yrkespraksis som lærer.
Skolefaget sløyd finnes i alle de nordiske landene, men med ulik betoning på innholdet i faget. I en
mobilitetsperiode kan faget studeres og sammenlignes med læreplaner fra eget land. Nye
didaktiske perspektiver, lærerrollen, prosess og produkt orientering, entreprenørskap, innredning
av klasserom, utstyr for bearbeiding av materialene, pedagogiske grunntanker og organisering av
undervisningsarenaer er noe av det studenten kan sette fokus på.

Network description
The project establishes a Nordic Network of Excellence in ICT4D. The main objectives of the
network are 1) to increase the visibility of the work that is being done by Nordic HEI institutions in
the field of ICT4D (Information and Communication for Development) by creating a Nordic Center
of Excellence in ICT4D, 2) to strengthen, coordinate and develop Nordic research collaboration in
ICT4D, 3) to develop joint courses and study programs in the field of ICT4D and 4) to establish a
forum to reach and influence high level decision makers in politics and industry. The Nordic
Network of Excellence in ICT4D will work towards establishing strategic partnerships with Nordic
state agencies, industrial enterprises and NGOs for the promotion of ICT in various development
contexts. The network will also establish cooperation and partnerships with international actors in
the area of ICT4D and promote South-South cooperation in the area of ICT.
A concrete result of the project is a launch Nordic Center of Excellence in ICT4D which will continue
its operation after the project period. The work of the Center is underpinned and reflected by the
Nordic values, e.g. equality, trust, proximity of power, inclusion, pragmatism and flexibility. The
Nordic center strives for academic excellence in ICT which guarantees high quality and
international attractiveness. The Center will also facilitate establishment of a Nordic selection for
ICT4D curriculum (e.g. joint study programs, wide selection of courses). The Center of Excellence
in ICT4D is thematically profiled based on the strengths on the Nordic research on ICT applications
in Nordic society - ICT in education, health, innovation, knowledge. The Center will also work
closely with external stakeholders, for example, the activities of the center will be supported by
high profile of international advisory board.
In the long run, the Nordic Center of Excellence in ICT4D works towards defining strategies and
policies for the introduction, sustainable development and management of ICT4D projects. The
center supports the contextualized use and development of ICT to support socio-economic
development, the efficiency of organisations and the quality of life of people in developing
countries. The center will also promote ICT as a tool for international development by creating
awareness on its importance. The Nordic Center of Excellence supports the formation and
dissemination of knowledge and competence in the field of ICT4D in Nordic countries and beyond.
The center will assists developing countries in definition of their ICT strategies and assure a
participatory approach to the use of ICT. One main issue of the centre's operation is the (re-)use
of Open Educational Resources, such as curricula, learning resources. The Nordic Center of
Excellence will collaborate with other existing Nordic Institutes, such as the Nordic Africa Institute,
the Nordic Institute of Asia Studies and the Nordic Institute for Urban and Regional Planning. The
Nordic Center of Excellence in ICT4D will have a rotating chair, which will be selected from
partners involved actively in the activities of the center.

Network description
The main purpose of the Geonord-network and its co-operation is twofold: a) the development and
intensification of the links between geographers and universities in the Baltic and Nordic countries,
b) the creation of new skills in research and problem-solving of regional development in the
context of Northern. peripheries. The main activies of the networks consist jointly planned
intensive courses and student/teacher exchange mobility. The thematic issue of the course varies
year by year, but the basic topic is always about to offer new and comparative viewpoints for local
and regional development issues in Northern Europe with special emphasis to peripheral areas. In
this year 2009 the course will focus on dimensions and phases of small scale regional integration.
The field research will be conducted in the Baltic borderlands but comparative analysis will be done
with some Nordic counterparts. Hence, the focus will be on local development events and
initiatives, but they are analyzed both in the general context of supra-local factors and in the
theoretical context of post-productivism, rural-urban interaction and regionalism/region-building.
The empirical cases will cover the whole variation of activities from resource-based economies
(agriculture, mining, forestry, energy industry) to features of experienced economy (tourism,
mobility and information technology).

Nordlys-nettverket er et faguavhengig nettverk som består av 35 universitetet i Norden.
Nettverket har siden 1995 arbeider for å fremme studentmobilitet i Norden på tvers av fagmiljøer
og grenser, samt styrke samarbeidet mellom universitetene. I 2005 ble
også lærermobilitet en del av aktiviteten i nettverket. Nye partnere i NORDLYS kan kun tas opp på
årsmøte etter forslag fra det respektive lands delegasjon. Høgskolen i Stavanger ble godkjent og
etablert som Universitetet i Stavanger den 1. januar 2005. Vi
ble således foreslått og vedtatt som medlem av NORDLYS-nettverket under årsmøtet på Færøyene
den 10. juni 2005.

Nätverket har som syfte att befrämja de nordiska kontakterna, både på student- och lärarnivå,
inom ämnesområdet folkloristik och etnologi. I Sverige förekommer inte ämnet folkloristik som
självständigt ämne. Av denna orsak är det viktigt att både lärare och studenter kan ta del av den
folkloristiska kännedom som finns i Norge, Finland och Island. Det nordiska samarbetet är i dagens
läge ytterst viktigt eftersom ämnet folkloristik gått miste om det nordiska samarbetsorganet
Nordiskt nätverk för folkloristik (NNF) och dess föregångare Nordiskt institut för folkdiktning (NIF)
båda finansierade av Nordiska ministerrådet.
Målet för verksamheten inom nätverket är att ge studenterna tillgång till kvalitativt högt stående
undervisning i de nordiska länderna och insikt i ämnesområden som det egna universitetet inte
kan bidra med. Gällande lärarutbytet skulle detta nätverk befrämja redan etablerade
forskarkontakter och ge upphov till nya kontakter. Också på ett högskolepedagogiskt plan skulle
detta nätverk kunna bidra med nya insikter för lärarna.

Den övergripande och långsiktiga målsättningen med ansökan är att ytterligare stärka den
nordiska religionsvetenskapen internationellt sett och skapa förutsättningar för en generation
yngre lärare och studerande att få kunskap och insyn i hur nordisk religionsvetenskap forskar och
undervisar samt placerar sig globalt. Nordisk religionsvetenskap har länge varit ledande när det
gäller forskningsmetodik och pedagogik. Nu handlar det om att både förstärka nordisk kompetens,
och genom ett aktivt student-, och lärarutbyte utveckla nya och fördjupade möten på en nordisk
arena för att gå i spetsen i internationellt avseende. Spetskompetens vid olika
religionsvetenskapliga enheter finns sålunda redan. Denna ansökans övergripande målsättning
handlar om att via direkta utbyten tillgodose de övriga enheternas behov av särskild kompetens.
Den preciserade målsättningen för verksamheten är att ge studenterna tillgång till kvalitativt god
undervisning och expertkunskap inom det område som hemuniversitet inte kan erbjuda. Detta
sker endera genom att en lärare med specialkunskap inom sitt område håller kurser vid en annan
enhet inom nätverket, eller så ges studenten ifråga möjlighet till utbyte på den ort som experten
finns på.

To be able to offer those students who do not have a Nordplus network in their own department a
possibility to go on exchange in a Nordic country. There is a notable demand for this mobility,
because there are so many small departments/subjects in the Humanities that do not have their
own Nordplus network. Also some departments in the Faculty of Science do not always have Nordic
contacts so that they could enable their students to go on exchange to Nordic countries. But the
students find this an attractive option, because studying in another Nordic country is a
comparatively easy option languagewise and the studies are of good quality. It is also a good
option for students who are more mature and have a family. For them going abroad to a far-away
destination is economically and for practical reasons impossible.

NORDLYS är ett ämnesövergripande så kallat öppet nätverk inom NORDPLUS, numera omfattande
alla universitet i Norden. Nätverket bildades år 1995 av en grupp Nordplus kontaktpersoner som
arbetade på centrala förvaltningarna vid universiteten. Syftet var och är att främja den nordiska
student- och lärarmobiliteten samt förbättra kommunikationen mellan de nordiska universiteten.
NORDLYS vänder sig främst till studenter som inte kan söka NORDPLUS-stipendier inom etablerade
institutionsnätverk eller som vill läsa ett annat ämne än det man laser vid hemuniversitetet
(tvärvetenskapliga studier), och stöder främst de mindre internationaliserade ämnesområden.
Nätverket arbetar också för att öka studentutbytet till universitet som idag endast utväxlar ett fåtal
studenter.
För att ytterligare stärka det nordiska samarbetet ger NORDLYS också en möjlighet för lärare att
söka stipendier för mobilitet inom nätverket. Det nordiska samarbetet stärks genom lärarutbyte.
Det goda samarbetet med samtliga universitet i Norden ger våra lärare fantastiska möjligheter att
genomföra så kallade lärarbesök med undervisning för att skapa och hitta nya samarbetspartner
utanför de etablerade ämnesnätverken. Lärarmobiliteten inom NORDLYS kan mycket väl ha en
katalysatorverkan i att skapa nya ämnesnätverk och sätta igång nya nordiska projekt.

Project title Joint Master's Programme Practical Philosophy: Theories of Good Society 2009-2010
Coordinating institution / Coordinator

Network description
This project is a Master’s Programme called "Practical Philosophy – Theories of Good Society", and
it will be conducted jointly by the universities participating in the Baltic Philosophy Network
(BalPhiN).

The broad theme of the Programme, Practical Philosophy, is mainly concerned with ethics, the
study of general moral standards and basic human values, but also applied ethics, particularly
business ethics, biomedical ethics, environmental ethics, and professional ethics. Connected with
these fields are social and political philosophy as well as philosophy of law, which address such
questions as the proper ethical standards for institutions - private as well as governmental - and
the foundations and constitutive principles of democracy. The more concrete theme of ‘Practical
Philosophy – Theories of Good Society’, does obviously not attempt to cover all the above fields;
instead it concentrates on theories of morality, justice and society, and these thematic focal points
of the Programme have been constructed from the areas of expertise of the participating
universities.

The Analytic Philosophy in Scandinavia is traditionally of very high quality. In particular social and
moral philosophy is on the very cutting edge of international research. The Baltic philosophers are
renowned for their accomplishments in Continental Philosophy, but philosophical inquiry in these
countries was suppressed for the main part of the 20th century, and it is only now regaining its
position as a central discipline of the academia. Combining the different philosophical traditions of
the participating universities and utilizing their individual strong areas, expertise and contacts, will
certainly result in high quality achievements in instruction and in research. In a similar manner as
Nordic philosophy has gained academic prestige, this will facilitate the rise of the Nordic-Baltic
philosophy to the international top.

The Programme also offsets certain important deficiencies in the philosophy instruction of some of
the participating universities. It provides the Philosophy Unit of European Humanities University
and the Department of Social and Moral Philosophy of the School of Political Science and
Diplomacy of Vytautas Magnus University with a ready Master’s degree program which they are
currently lacking. It also gives the Philosophy Unit of Södertörn University College a weighty
argument in the establishing process of their Master’s program. For the rest of the participating
institutes, the Programme offers considerable support for the existing programs, strengthens their
areas of weaker expertise, and provides for the basis for developing common Nordic-Baltic
philosophy research.
For the students, the Programme offers an internationally valid and high-level degree with state-
of- the-art knowledge and competencies in the field of Practical Philosophy. The Joint Degree is
designed to furnish the students with first-rate competence to undertake further PhD studies. It
will also give them a competitive Master’s Degree in vocational professions related to the fields of
philosophy and social sciences.

The organizing body, Baltic Philosophy Network (BalPhiN), consists of three Nordic and five Baltic
philosophical institutes: University of Helsinki, Department of Social and Moral Philosophy (as the
coordinator), Department of Philosophy of University of Iceland, and Philosophy Unit of Södertörn
University College; Department of Philosophy of Tallinn University, Centre for Ethics of University
of Tartu, Department of Practical Philosophy of University of Latvia, Department of Social and
Moral Philosophy of the School of Political Science and Diplomacy of Vytautas Magnus University,
and Philosophy Unit of European Humanities University. The BalPhiN was founded in 2007 in order
to establish the cooperation that had started already in the early 1990’s. The network aims at the
enhancement of student and teacher exchange and joint philosophical instruction and research
between the Nordic and Baltic institutes of philosophy. One of the purposes of the network is to
make this Master’s Degree Programme one of the durable, recurring practices of instruction of
Practical Philosophy in these countries.

The Programme will be directed by an Executive Board, which consists of representatives from
each of the member institutes of the BalPhiN. The Chairperson of the Executive Board is the
Coordinator of the Programme, that is, Dr. Olli Loukola from University of Helsinki. The Secretary
of the Board MA Liuda Kocnovaite, is from the same institute.

This project satisfies well the general objectives of Nordplus Higher Education 2009, especially in
contributing to cooperation between higher education institutions in the participating countries and
to the establishment of networks for exchange and dissemination of experiences, best practices
and innovative results. In particular it satisfies the priority of the development of Joint Study
Programmes, Curriculum Development projects and quality assurance work in higher education.
The educational structures and arrangements of this project are developed and designed to meet
the various needs and requirements of the participating universities, coming from countries with a
great variety of educational and academic structures and practices.

Målsättningen med nätverkssamarbetet är att möjliggöra studier och kurser i specialområden som
inte är företrädda vid det egna universitetet genom att studenterna får åka på utbyte. Med tanke
på det stora utbudet av specialområden får nätverket en bredare karaktär.
Nätverket har haft en livlig verksamhet under de senaste åren, både student- och lärarutbyten har
skett i alla riktningar och en jämvikt har uppnåtts på bästa tänkbara sätt. Nätverksmöten har
hållits fyra gånger tack vare finansiering via nätverksmedel under nätverkets långa existens.
Därutöver hölls ett möte utan Nordplus-finansiering vid Háskoli Islands i augusti 2007 i samband
med det Nordiska Historikermötet och ett annat nätverksmöte i Köpenhamn i februari 2009 då det
var nödvändigt att träffas för att bl.a. utvärdera den senaste intensivkursen samt planera den kurs
som skall hållas våren 2010. Möten är av allra högsta vikt för att nätverksmedlemmarna skall
kunna dela med sej av erfarenheter beträffande kurserna samt andra nyheter/reformer/projekt
inom historieundervisningen vid de nordiska universiteten.
Våren 2004 hölls nätverkets första intensivkurs, förlagd till Uppsala. Den andra intensivkursen
hölls i maj 2006 i Tromsö och den tredje i maj 2008 i Köpenhamn. Kurserna har visat sig bli stor
succé för alla medverkande. Väldigt positiv feed-back har getts av de medverkande studenterna.
Nästa kurs skall hållas i maj 2010 vid Åbo Akademi. Kurserna ger en ypperlig chans till
specialkunnande, förmedlat av lärare specialiserade i de ämnen som behandlas på kurserna.
Dessutom anses kurserna vara ett viktigt komplement för de studerande som inte anser sig vara
mogna för en hel termins vistelse vid ett annat samarbetsuniversitet. Dessutom maximerar
intensivkurserna sammanhållningen studenter och lärare emellan.
Nätverket är företrätt med två universitet i vartdera landet, med undantag av Island. Nätverket
står på en stabil grund och målsättningen är att ett jämnt student- och lärarutbyte skall bibehållas.
Ömsesidigheten är mycket god och fortsätter på så vis enligt tradition och framtidsprognoser.
Nätverket har väl använt medlen från de senaste årens beviljningar. För att kunna fortsätta
verksamheten på samma grunder som tidigare, behöver nätverket i fortsättningen
mobilitetsstipendier samt finansiering för en ny intensivkurs, den som skall hållas i Åbo våren
2010. I samband med intensivkursen 2010 skall även ett nätverksmöte hållas.

Network description
Archaeology has seen a dramatic decrease of students at most universities in the Nordic and Baltic
countries which of course has to be changed. The revival of this Nordplus network is seen as a tool
by all partners in the network for the development of the subject. The network is a continuation of
the only existing, all Nordic archaeology network, which started in the 90´s and now includes
partner institutions in the Baltic States. The network which also includes osteology has during the
last nine years solely been engaged in student mobility schemes and there has been no networking
activities which now needs to be initiated by enabling the teachers of partner institutions of the
network to meet around issues of common interest such as teacher mobility and the creation of
joint courses and programs focused on common interests tied to interactions and change observed
in our archaeological remains. Placement possibilities have so far not been a part of the student
mobility scheme but should be included in this application considering the need for archaeology
student to enhance their employability by being offered a possibility to work in a private or public
institution/enterprise in the field. This would enable new inputs from the sector into curriculum
development of benefit for the sector and the entrepreneurial skills of students. Teacher mobility
should therefore also permit the inclusion of teacher from the public/private sphere although no
such partners have yet been included in this application. Meanwhile such contacts exist and will be
used. The reason for the increased amount of mobility applied for to Sweden is that a new
coordinating institution, Gotland University, has taken over the coordination of this archaeology
project after Kalmar University and that past experience from mobility flows showed student
mobility flows mainly to Sweden. The reason for this might be that such subjects as Osteology
does not exist at the same advanced level as in Sweden and that some programs at Swedish
universities offer programs in archaeology in English. During the present academic year 2008/2009
flows have also been going to Norway. Furthermore Gotland University is also one of the few HEI:s
(Higher Educational Institutions) in the network offering a semester or two in English at its
International Archaeology program launched in the academic year 2007/2008. This will obviously
change as the network and planning meeting engaging all participating institutions will start.
Gotland University being the coordinating institution from the academic year 2008/2009 will be the
natural meeting point for a kick-off meeting in October 2009 initiating the network and for
planning meeting for the continuation of the network. As part of the revival of the network there
should be an opening for all participating universities to alternate at a decided interval to be the
coordinator of the network which will serve as a stimulator for the development of the
archaeology/osteology subject at participating HEIs as well as in the network itself.

Network description
The purpose of the project is to educate masters in a common Nordic masters programme with the
title 'The Religious Roots of Europe'. The Nordic Council of Ministers has financed the development
of this programme. The programme is based on a high degree of student and teachers’ mobility as
described below. With this mobility the programme will further cooperation between institutions of
higher education and research in the Nordic countries and it will bring students from these
countries together. The student mobility is however not funded. If the students are thus required
to fund their own travelling it might be feared that some of them would choose, due to financial
reasons, not to take part in the full mobility scheme. We are therefore applying for financial
support for financing the travelling of our students within this programme.
Mobility arrangements
The establishment of a master programme attracting students from all the Nordic countries creates
major logistic problems. When solved, an international study milieu has been created for the
benefit of the students. This objective is reached through:
•        Compact seminars: For most of the courses under the programme there are organised
compact seminars. A compact seminar is a seminar where teachers and students meet for 3-14
days and are engaged in the learning process. The compact seminars will take place at the
institutions involved in the consortium and at the Nordic institutes of the Mediterranean area. In
this manner, the students do not have to settle for longer periods at different institutions. The
consequence is obviously additional costs for student mobility, which we hope to some extent to
cover with the help of the NordPlus-Programme.
•        Exchange of teachers: The programme demands a high degree of mobility on the part of
the involved teachers. Teachers from more than one institution and Nordic country will be involved
in each of the compact seminars in order to enhance the effects of synergism. Obviously, such an
endeavour requires a thorough planning because most teachers involved also have to take care of
teaching at their respective home institutions. The advantage will be a more active exchange of
teachers that in the long term could have a positive effect on other forms of exchange with regard
to both teaching and research.
•        E-learning: Apart from the compact seminars, the continuous contact among students and
between the students and teachers will be maintained by e-learning.
•        Tutorials: Students residing in the vicinity of the same Host Institution meet under the
supervision of a teacher or an instructor (e.g. a PhD-student) involved in the programme to
discuss parts of the syllabus, complete assignments and/or prepare presentations.
The compact seminars and the tutorials are even more important with regard to students from
outside the Nordic countries.

Network description
This is a network principally devoted to student and staff mobility in the field of philosophy. Priority
is given to longer-term exchanges: semester-length study abroad for students and teaching
exchanges of two to four weeks. Such exchanges help to make effective use of academic
resources, to provide students and staff with a broadened perspective and valuable life experience,
and conduce to Nordic (and Nordic-Baltic) cooperation and integration. In addition to its present
Nordic partners (which number seventeen) and present Baltic partners (which number three), the
network now aims to revitalize a former partner, the University of Tromsø, and add the Vytautus
Magnus University in Kaunas, Lithuania, and Tallinn University in Estonia, in order to broaden the
exchange program. This is in keeping with the project's current annual priority.

Network description
For several decades, philosophy of music or, more generally, humanistic research in music has
concentrated on issues such as
- the relationships between music and speech
- the influence on local and global culture exerted by the immediate availability of music FROM
virtually any time and place AT any time and place
- the ways in which listeners hear sounds as meaningful and representative, even when these
sounds
come from the realm of what is usually thought of as 'noise'
- the ontological status of the work of music or - more narrowly - the status of the composition
- the relationship between music and emotions
And, more recently,
- understanding processes in the minds of performing musicians and
- inspired by the results of such investigations in music ensembles, getting a deeper understanding
of human interaction in communities (or just person to person) in general.
The Nordic Network for the Integration of Music Informatics, Performance and Aesthetics
(NNIMAPA) aims at shedding new light upon these questions by viewing music in terms of
information and communication, aided by the tools under rapid development within information
technology, practice-based research and the new perspectives arising within aesthetics as a result
of new technologies for studying and producing music.

Network description
NORDLIKS-nettverket vart skipa i 1992, og det er i dag eit nettverk av 33 institusjonar ved 28
universitet frå heile Norden, inkludert dei sjølvstyrande områda. Ved desse institusjonane blir det
undervist i nordiske språk, nordisk litteratur og litteraturvitskap. Det overordna målet til nettverket
er å bidra til at Norden framleis skal vere eit levande språk- og kulturfellesskap, noko som òg er
eit viktig satsingsområde for språksamarbeidet under Nordisk Ministerråd, jf. måla i Deklaration
om nordisk språkpolitik, vedteken i 2006. NORDLIKS vil bidra til dette gjennom å støtte og fremje
samarbeidet mellom nettverksinstitusjonane og leggje til rette for student- og lærarutveksling.

Hensikten med prosjektet er todelt:
1) Det finansielle aspektet
Gjennom vårt samarbeid og fordeling av arbeidsoppgavene er det mulig for våre institusjoner å
tilby et omfattende studieprogram uten altfor store finansielle kostnader for den enkelte
institusjon. Prinsippet er at alle bidrar med tjenester (undervisning, veiledning, eksamensavvikling
etc.) i noen kurs, og at hver institusjon til gjengjeld får tilgang til alle kursene i
prosjektsamarbeidet
2) Det faglige aspekt
Gjennom vårt samarbeid tilføres de samarbeidende partnere fagkompetanse som de mangler.
Gjennom vårt nettverk har vi hatt seminarier som har hatt som mål å spre fagkompetanse hos alle
partnerne.
Målet med prosjektet i nåværende fase er å fortsette det faglige samarbeidet slik at både
studenter og fagmiljø tilføres kompetanse av internasjonal kvalitet.

Network description
The Baltic-Nordic Network on Education in Survey Statistics constitutes the education-focused
Baltic-Nordic branch of the more extensive Baltic-Nordic-Ukrainian Network on Education and
Research in Survey Statistics. The main purpose of the Baltic-Nordic Network on Education in
Survey Statistics is to strengthen co-operation between universities, government agencies and
statistical associations in the Baltic and Nordic countries on education in survey statistics and
related statistical applications. The mobility, network and project activities described in this
application involve the implementation of student and teacher mobility schemes, the organization
of workshops, conferences and university-level intensive courses in survey statistics, the
development of curriculum for joint university-level education programmes in survey statistics, and
the extension of the network to cover new academic and other partner institutions from the Baltic
and Nordic countries.
The activities for the three forthcoming academic years will be carried out by the participating
universities, University of Helsinki, Finland, University of Umeå and University of Stockholm,
Sweden, University of Tartu, Estonia, Vilnius University and Institute of Mathematics and
Informatics, Lithuania, and University of Latvia. The main target groups are students and teachers
in higher education institutions. In addition, statisticians of National Statistical Institutes and
National Statistical Societies of the participating countries are expected to attend some of the
network activities, the workshops and conferences in particular. This facilitates our aim to involve
into Network activities eligible organizations and institutions having vested interests in the area of
higher education in survey statistics.
By successfully implementing these activities we expect extended, better established and more
productive cooperation between higher education institutions of the Baltic and Nordic countries on
education in survey statistics. The previous activities of the Network are summarized in the
Network website at http://wiki.helsinki.fi/display/BNU/Home.

Network description
Målsättningen med nätverket är att lärare och studenter vid barnmorskeprogrammen i de fyra
nordiska länderna ska knyta kontakter, utbyta erfarenheter och utveckla kunskapsnivån när det
gäller barnmorskans profession i Norden. Barnmorskeutbildningarna ser olika ut i de nordiska
länderna men det finns också likheter. Grundsynen i de olika utbildningarna är detsamma och
målsättningen att utbilda yrkeskunniga barnmorskor är gemensam. Sedan nätverkets bildande har
ett nära samarbete mellan de fyra utbildningsorterna utvecklats. Detta kan ses genom det student
och lärarutbyte som ständigt pågår. Det är lätt att förhandla om lärar- och studerande mobilitet
när lärare och koordinatörer känner varandra väl. Ett konkret exempel på ett givande samarbete
är den intensivkurs som genomfördes hösten 2008. ”Förebyggande av perinealskador vid
förlossning i Norden”. Resultaten från intensivkursen kommer att presenteras i en artikel samt
muntligt på Nordiska jordemoderförbundets kongress i Köpenhamn 2010. En målsättning är att
intensivkursen ska kunna upprepas hösten 2010. Förutsättningen för genomförande av
ovanstående mål är att nätverket erhåller nätverksstöd.

Network description
The primary purposes of the Nordic-Baltic Dental Hygiene-Oral Health project are to promote
collaboration within the Dental Hygiene Programmes and to develop the programme and the
subject of Oral Health Science which is the main subject of the Dental Hygiene Programme. The
subject is a relatively new academic subject and the Dental Hygiene Programme is a relatively
small programme. Collaboration with other universities is an essential part in the increasing of the
academic level of the subject of Oral Health Science.
There has been a Nordic Nordplus Network “Oral Health” since 1993. Partners, until now within
the network, have been the Dental Hygiene Programmes at the University of Dalarna, Sweden;
Oslo University, Norway; and Turku University of Applied Sciences, Finland.
Now the network aims to renew and enlarge further. The Dental Hygienists Academic School, Riga
Stradins University, Latvia has been invited and accepted as a new partner.
The aims of the network for this period are to develop a Nordic – Baltic co-operation and to build a
new network whose goal is to increase the quality of education. The network aims to compare and
to develop the curriculum of the programmes and strengthen the academic level. The network also
aims to broaden, and as well as to deepen knowledge of culture in the Nordic -Baltic countries. In
addition the network aims for both the teachers and students to improve their language skills.
The network plans the following activities during this period:
Networking including curricula development and exchange of knowledge and experience and also
to plan job sharing in a web based distance course, and in addition to these activities start the
plans for a new intensive course
Teacher and student mobility
Dissemination of knowledge and experience.

The main idea is that the teachers and students from different countries can meet, share and
develop their ideas and innovations about common topics in nursing and health care under a
headline of paediatric health promotion. The nursing students learn the significance of health
education as a part of nursing as well as some new trends on paediatric health promotion. The
network will further develop the research within nursing and nursing education. Both the teachers
and the students learn improve their knowledge about different cultures, practical traditions, ways
of actions and appliances in professional context. The teachers are able to develop the content of
the Health Promotion course further and integrate it or parts of it into the curricula of their home
institutions. In addition they learn the use of new teaching methods in multicultural and
multilinquistic context and are able to develop their pedagogical skills through the experiences
during the intensive course.
The purpose is also to enhance the well known Nordic high quality of nursing education and to
harmonize nursing education in Nordic and Baltic countries according to the aims of the Bologna
process.

The main objective of the project is to build up a joint education possibility inside Bachelor thesis
modules of partner institutions. This will be shown as a process model.
For building this process model during next two years, network will have development project
(seminars), teachers’ mobility, and also express mobility.
Seminars are for getting the mutual understanding of new “joint education in Bachelor thesis” -
process model.
Teachers’ mobility and express mobility is for teachers, and for students. Students participate to
the seminar weeks and also to Bachelor thesis working weeks with express mobility possibility. In
seminar weeks, students will have lectures and workshops. Then they work with their Bachelor
thesis. They also participate to the development project of process model. Their experience is
important to have for building up a process model, which works. During Bachelor thesis working
weeks (supported by teachers’ mobility and by express mobility) both teachers and students work
together. Teacher gives supervising. Clinical educator, of the work place where Bachelor thesis is

Formålet med netværket BIOnord er overordnet at fremme internationaliseringen indenfor
bioanalytikeruddannelserne i Norden. Gennem mobilitets aktiviteter gives den studerende en
international dimension i sit uddannelsesforløb, hvilket medvirker til at kvalificere den studerende
til at fungere på et internationalt arbejdsmarked. Den studerende får mulighed for at tilegne sig
viden på internationalt niveau, der gør dem i stand til at bidrage med udviklingen og fornyelsen af
det laboratorieteknologiske fagområde i nationale såvel som internationale sammenhænge.
Netværket har eget kursusbevis og anvender ECTS-point-systemet.
Gennem lærerudveksling søges det at fremme erfarings- og vidensdeling både indenfor det
pædagogiske felt som indenfor det laboratorievidenskabelige felt. Den kundskabs- og
erfaringsudveksling, der finder sted i forbindelse med lærerudvekslingen har stor betydning for
udviklingen af bioanalytikeruddannelserne i Norden.
Netværket BIOnord omfatter uddannelse til biomedicinsk analytiker/bioingeniør/bioanalytiker i alle
de nordiske lande. Netværket blev etableret i 1993. I løbet af kort tid omfattede netværket
uddannelser i alle fem nordiske lande. I 2004 blev netværket udvidet med Tromsø og i 2007 blev
Jönköping og Helsinki optaget i netværket. På sidste netværksmøde blev der fra alle partnere
udtrykt interesse for at etablere kontakt med en bioanalytikeruddannelse i et af de baltiske lande,
hvilket netværket ønsker at påbegynde i indeværende år.
Netværket udgør en vigtig inspirationskilde til uddannelsesinstitutionerne med hensyn til den
stadige udvikling der sker med uddannelserne i de nordiske lande.
Netværkets omdrejningspunkt er det årlige netværksmøde, som er af stor betydning for
udviklingen, samarbejdet og driften af netværkets. På netværksmøder drøftes de nye
prioriteringsområder, som meldes ud fra Nordisk Ministerråd, økonomi, tilrettelæggelse af
studieophold og praktiske forhold vedrørende studentermobiliteten. På netværksmøder søges det
at afdække behov for nye tiltag og deltagerne drøfter ideer til den fortsatte udvikling af netværket.
Netværket arbejder aktivt med at skabe fælles undervisningsmateriale, der lægges på nettet
tilgængeligt for netværkets studerende. Netværket har færdiggjort en hematologiportal som
benyttes af studerende og undervisere på alle netværkets uddannelsesinstitutioner. Det blev
besluttet på sidste netværkmøde at arbejde videre med at skabe fælles undervisningsmateriale
indenfor mikrobiologi.
BIOnord ønsker at igangsætte et arbejde på at klarlægge muligheden for at udnytte eksisterende
masteruddannelser i Norden indenfor medicinsk laboratorievidenskab. Formålet med projektet er
at skabe flere muligheder i Norden for at tage en masteruddannelse indenfor biomedicinsk
laboratorievidenskab, da mulighederne herfor fortsat er meget begrænsede. Den pågældende
sammensætning af uddannelse skal godkendes af relevante autoriteter, således at den bliver en
fuldgyldig masteruddannelse indenfor biomedicinsk laboratorievidenskab.
Netværket ønsker at forsætte arbejdet med den nyetablere hjemmeside, således, at den kan
fungere som et fælles forum for studerende og lærere og udbrede kendskabet til netværket.

Nätverkets övergripande syfte är att stärka och fördjupa samarbetet inom sjukskötarutbildningen i
Norden och ge studenterna och lärarna möjligheter till utbyte inom det egna området. Årligen
granskas nätverkets målsättning på basen av de utvärderingar som gjorts under verksamhetsåret.
För detta år vill nätverket speciellt ha som syfte att möjliggöra ett aktivt utbyte då efterfrågan nu
är större än utbudet, att planera en intensivkurs för följande verksamhetsår inom ramen för något
aktuellt tema i vård, att internationalisera flera av lärarna genom lärarutbyte och således sprida
internationaliseringen att omfatta även nya lärare, att möjliggöra deltagande i kurser av
motsvarande kravnivå i annat land under en kortare period samt att överlag stärka nätverket
genom att sammanbinda de aktivteter nätverket haft under en lång verksamhetsperiod i form av
en historisk tillbakablick. I verksamheten ingår mobiltet, nätverksmöten och expressmobilitet.

Nordinnet består av 8 universitet/högskolor i de fem nordiska länderna, som bedriver
specialistutbildning för intensivvårdssjuksköterskor. Det finns en styrka i att finna en identitet inom
intensivvård då vi har gemensam kulturbakgrund och likartad syn i Norden. Syftet med nätverket
är att stimulera till gemensamma forskningsprojekt samt sprida och förmedla nya ideer, utveckla
gemensamma metoder och examinationsformer samt kvalitetssäkra dessa. Vidare skall de
nordiska språken och kulturen befrämjas genom student och lärarutväxling. Nordinnet har under
året etablerat kontakt med Kaunas University of Medicin i Litauen. De har en 4 årig
sjuksköterskeutbildning och som en del i denna en specialistutbildning i intensivvård med
definierade ECTS poäng i teoretiska och kliniska studier. Kontaktperson Arvydas Seskevicuis har
uttryckt intresse för att ingå i Nordinnett.

Network description
Det huvudsakliga syftet med nätverket är att ge studenterna tillgång till nya influenser och
internationell erfarenhet från ett annat nordiskt land. Den geografiska och historiska närheten gör
det enkelt att samarbeta om att utbyta studenter. Trots denna gemenskap skiljer det något mellan
olika utbildnings- och sjukvårdssytem. Detta är en viktig erfarenhet för studenter, lärare och
koordinatorer. En internationell erfarenhet under utbildningen ger fler dimensioner till det
kommande arbetet som läkare, vilket sannolikt höjer kompetensen hos dessa studenter.
Nätverket vill främja och utveckla detta genom att koordinera studentutbyten, både på befintliga
programkurser, prekliniskt och kliniskt, liksom genomförande av kliniska placeringar på sjukhus.
Det nordiska samarbetet syftar till att stärka Norden och östersjöregionen som enhet i den alltmer
ökande globaliseringen av utbildning och forskning, vilket även detta nätverk ställer sig bakom.

Network description
The purpose is to keep our network living and to strengthen and extend it. The network BIO-NORD
was established in 2005 by degree programmes in Biomedical Laboratory Science. BIO-NORD
Nordplus is a network within the profession-educations for Biomedical
Scientists/Bioanalysts/Bioengineer and Biomedical Laboratory Technologists. The titels represent
the same profession but the title differs within Scandinavia and the Baltic countries. The mutual
subject is Biomedical Laboratory Science. Our network is represented by members from Norway,
Denmark, Finland, Sweden and this year even Estonia. Since the University college of Oslo joined
the Network two years ago we included educationprogrammes in Pharmacy because two of our
members offer education for Pharmaceutical dispensers. (Professionals working in Pharmacies.)
The included institutions belongs to University College Sjælland (former CVU-SYD Naestved ,
Karlstad University, Oslo University college, Ostfold University College and Helsinki Metropolia
University of Applied Sciences (former Helsinki polytechnic). In 2008 Tartu Health Care College
(formerTartu School of Health Care) were included. The network cooperation includes teacher and
student mobility. Our intention to organize mutual master courses is serious but it needs further
planning

Nordlys-nätverkets grundidé är ge möjligheter åt studerande att åka på nordiskt studentutbyte
även om det egna ämnet inte ingår i något nätverkssamarbete. Nätverket ger också möjligheter åt
studerande som önskar avlägga tvärvetenskapliga studier vid ett annat nordiskt lärosäte.
Nätverket välkomnades och accepterades helt fullt ut av både personal och studenter från dess
start. Detta betydde också att problem med tillgodoräkning av studier avlagda vid ett annat
nordiskt universitet direkt från början kunde undvikas. Åbo Akademi har haft studerande som vid
ett annat nordiskt lärosäte dessutom har läst ämnen som inte finns företrädda vid Åbo Akademi.
Sålunda har ÅA-studerande läst ämnen såsom antropologi, persiska, islamologi, filmvetenskap och
journalistik för att nämna några. Dessa ämnen har införts som biämnen i studenternas examen
vid Åbo Akademi, förutsatt att studenten har fått ihop så många studiepoäng som krävs för ett
första eller andra biämne.
Tillgodoräkningen har aldrig varit ett problem inom nätverket och kommer knappast att bli det
framöver heller. Nu är tillgodoräkningen dessutom synnerligen enkel i och med att så gott som alla
nordiska universitet har samma studiepoäng och vitsordsskalor, med några undantag som ändå
redan är välkända och accepterade.
Syftet med Nordlysnätverket är att
-       stärka den nordiska utbildningsgemenskapen
-       stärka den nordiska dimensionen i undervisningen
-       öka kännedom om andra nordiska universitet
-       dra nytta av varandras erfarenheter
-       ge studenter i Norden ett nordiskt perspektiv i sin utbildning antingen som Nordplus-
studenter eller vid hemuniversitetet genom lärarutbyte
-       ge större möjligheter för lärare att själv knyta kontakter med kollegor vid de nordiska
universiteten
-       finna tvärvetenskapliga kontakter
-       hitta nya intressanta samarbetspartner utanför de etablerade ämnesnätverken
-       bevara och utveckla den nordiska identiteten

The Geography network aims at using each partner's specialization fields for offering interesting
study opportunities to its students. In other words, students who wish to focus on certain areas of
specialization, which are not as strongly represented at their home institution as at some partner
institution, can benefit from the opportunity of Nordplus student mobility within the Geography
network. Network activities also consist of development of virtual learning techniques, which
enable students’ reading, participating and communicating in the mutual, shared virtual platforms
of the courses, which will be developed in collaboration between Nordplus partners.

Nordlys är ett ämnesövergripande sk. ”öppet” nätverk som omfattar 35 nordiska universitet.
Nordlys vänder sig till studenter och lärare som inte har möjlighet att söka NORDPLUS-stipendier
inom etablerade ämnesnätverk. Kontaktperson för nätverket jobbar centralt på universitetet.
Nätverket syftar med student- och lärarutbytena samt kontakten mellan medlemsuniversiteten till
att:
-       stärka den nordiska utbildningsgemenskapen.
-       stärka den nordiska dimensionen i undervisningen.
-       öka kännedomen om andra nordiska universitet.
-       dra nytta av varandras erfarenheter.
-       ge studenter i Norden ett nordiskt perspektiv i sin utbildning.
-       ge större möjligheter för lärare att själva knyta kontakter med kollegor vid de nordiska
universiteten.
-       finna tvärvetenskapliga kontakter.
-       hitta nya intressanta samarbetspartner utanför de etablerade ämnesnätverken.
-       bevara och utveckla den nordiska identiteten.
Nordlys-nätverkets koordinator lämnar in en övergripande nätverksansökan.
Lunds universitet har länge varit medlem i nätverket och med denna projektansökan vill vi
fortsätta arbetet med att implementera nätverkets övergripande målsättningar och stärka det
nordiska samarbetet genom ökad mobilitet för både studenter och lärare. Vi har bland annat under

Network description
Currently cooperation and networking within HE in Biology, with a focus on ecology and natural
resources, are very limited. Although Erasmus programs do promote exchange we feel that within
our subjects the regional, North European, perspective have not received enough attention and
support. Our primary objective is to establish the first higher education network focusing ecology
and nature resources management in Northern Europe.

Network description
Syftet med NORDLYS-nätverket är att främja den nordiska student- och lärarmobiliteten samt
förbättra kommunikationen mellan de nordiska universiteten. NORDLYS vänder sig till studenter
och lärare som inte har möjligheter till att ansöka NORDPLUS-stipendier inom etablerade
ämnesnätverk och till studenter som vill läsa ett annat ämne än det de läser vid hemuniversitetet
(tvärvetenskapliga studier, biämnen etc.). NORDLYS stöder därmed främst mindre
internationaliserade ämnesområden (t.ex. naturvetenskap). Nätverket arbetar också för att öka
studentutbytet till och från universitetet som idag endast utväxlar ett fåtal studenter. Karlstads
universitets syfte med projektet är att kunna erbjuda möjligheter för universitetets studenter att
göra studentutbyten till universitet i våra nordiska grannländer. Ge studenter en chans att
komplettera sin utbildning med annan nordisk utbildning och därmed kunna höja kvalitén på sin
utbildning. Vi har också som syfte att främja rörligheten mellan de nordiska universiteten för lärare
och administrativ personal.

The purpose of the MARECLIM network is to establish and maintain a long-term collaboration with
the primary aim of running a Joint Nordic Master Programme in Marine Ecosystems and Climate.
Promoting of this program and its establishment as a model for successful Nordic cooperation in
higher education is the long-term goal of the MARECLIM network. Finally, the network aims on
exploring the perspectives for expanding this cooperation based on the experience gained while
running the master program.
The specific objectives of the Joint Nordic Master’s Programme in Marine Ecosystems and Climate
are:
•       Capacity building to address societal needs in climate impact research and assessment and
 in ecosystem research and marine resource management;
•       Ensuring inter-disciplinarity in education in marine science by disciplinary integration;
•       Increasing the teaching potential by regional integration;
•       Revolving a master’s programme around top level research;
•       Providing a study programme of top international quality in the Nordic region;
•       Increasing the attractivity of the Nordic region for local and non-Nordic students.
Herewith, addressing the more general objectives of the Joint Nordic Master’s programmes:
•       Stimulate co-operation between educational institutions and other relevant bodies and
making the Nordic Region a more coherent unit;
•       Enhance the international profile of Nordic Higher Education and spread ‘good practice’;
•       Develop new models for Nordic co-operation in education;
•       Develop new areas of academic study;
•       Generate specialised knowledge in areas where expertise is needed;
•       Provide positive models for ongoing academic collaboration.

Network description
The main purpose of the network is to facilitate student and teacher mobility in universities within
study fields that cannot offer NORDPLUS-grants through existing subject-related networks.
Another purpose is to give students the opportunity to study within a different field of study than
at their home institution, which helps creating multidisciplinary contacts and find cooperation
partners outside the established subject-related networks. The NORDLYS-network as a whole aims
at increasing the number of students, teachers and administrative staff taking an exchange period
or visit in a Nordic country, and in this way increase their awareness of the Nordic dimension in the
globalising world of today.

Formålet med Nordplus-netværket i statskundskab er at skabe en ramme for udveksling af
studerende mellem 20 politologiske universitetsinstitutter i Norden. Politologi forstås i bred
forstand, dvs. komparativ politik, international politik og organisation, offentlig forvaltning,
offentlig politik, policystudier, sociologi og metode. Netværket er organiseret med én koordinator
(fra Aarhus Universitet) og en kontaktperson på hvert af de deltagende institutter. Netværket giver
også mulighed for lærermobilitet mellem de deltagende institutter.

Stockholms universitet ingår i det centrala nätverket Nordlys som består av cirka 30 universitet i
Norden. Syftet med projektet ”Nordlys + Stockholms universitet” är att kunna erbjuda
utbytesmöjligheter för de studenter på grundutbildning och lärare vid Stockholms universitet som
inte har möjlighet att delta i utbyte inom Nordplusprogrammet genom ämnesnätverk vid
institution. Övergripande syfte med projektet är att utöka och intensifiera samarbete mellan de
deltagande lärosätena och därmed främja och förstärka den nordiska utbildningsgemenskapen
inom högre utbildning i Norden i enlighet med Nordplus ramprogram 2008-2011.

NORDLYS är ett ämnesövergripande så kallat öppet nätverk inom NORDPLUS, numera omfattande
alla universitet i Norden. Nätverket bildades år 1995 av en grupp Nordplus kontaktpersoner som
arbetade på de centrala förvaltningarna vid universiteten. Syftet var och är att främja den nordiska
student- och lärarmobiliteten samt förbättra kommunikationen mellan de nordiska universiteten
och öka förståelsen mellan de nordiska länderna.
NORDLYS vänder sig främst till studenter som inte kan söka NORDPLUS-stipendier inom etablerade
institutionsnätverk eller som vill läsa ett annat ämne än det man läser vid hemuniversitetet, och
stöder främst de mindre internationaliserade ämnesområden. Nätverket arbetar också för att öka
studentutbytet till universitet som idag endast utväxlar ett fåtal studenter.
För att ytterligare stärka det nordiska samarbetet ger NORDLYS också en möjlighet för lärare att
söka stipendier för mobilitet inom nätverket. Det goda samarbetet med samtliga universitet i
Norden ger våra lärare fantastiska möjligheter att genomföra så kallade lärarutbyten med
undervisning för att skapa och hitta nya samarbetspartner inom forskning och för utvecklandet av
gemensamma kurser utanför de etablerade ämnesnätverken. Lärarmobiliteten inom NORDLYS kan
därmed mycket väl ha en katalysatorverkan i att skapa nya ämnesnätverk och sätta igång nya
nordiska projekt.

Network description
Objective for co-operation with in the theme “Changing Everyday Practices - Home and Food
Cultures – in Nordic and Baltic Societies” is to provide high quality advanced level courses for the
Nordic and Baltic students. The long term aim is to run an international joint master programme
where master’s thesis are supervised and done in international study groups.
The short time (2009-2010) goals are (four different activities):

1) To improve and further develop the already existing INTENSIVE COURSE “Food and learning in
a changing society - food is not only nutrition / Mat och lärande i ett föränderligt samhälle - mat är
mera än näring” http://www.helsinki.fi/kty/nordplus. The partnership was extended to Estonia
during the academic year 2008-2009. The Tallinn University is the latest companion from the Baltic
region. Spring 2010 the intensive course will be held in Estonia.
Universities and departments taking part in this intensive course are:
- University of Helsinki, Department of Home Economics and Craft Science
-Tallinn University, Department of Craft
- Aarhus University, Danish School of Education, Copenhagen
- University of Gothenburg, Department of Food, Health and Environment
-University of Uppsala Department for Food, Nutrition and Dietetics
2) To give opportunity for the students to study 6 months in an other Nordic country (STUDENTS
LONG EXCHANGE)
Universities taking part in students’ long exchanges are:
-Department of Home Economics and Craft Science, University of Helsinki
-Department of Food, Health and Environment, University of Gothenburg
-Department for Food, Nutrition and dietetics, Uppsala University
3) To plan and extend co-operation in a JOINT STUDY PROGRAMME” Interdisciplinary Studies on
Everyday Life in Nordic Welfare Societies”
Universities taking part in joint study programme are:
University of Helsinki, Department of Home Economics and Craft Science
University of Linköping Sweden, Theme department: Theme Technology and Social Change
University of Roskilde, Denmark, Department of Psychology and Education
For this application round there are three new partners:
University of Stavanger, Norway, Department of Social Studies
University of Tallin, Estonia, Department of Social Policy
University of Helsinki, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Social Policy
Objectives of the joint study program:
- to plan a joint, Nordic, and interdisciplinary master program on researching everyday life
- to plan a detailed structure of the program for a joint degree or for reconciling the structure
within our current degrees
- to specify the degree requirements, and selection criteria for the students
-find out more about possibilities for applying for the Erasmus Mundus programme with partners
outside Nordic and Baltic region.
4) To run a SHORT METHODOLOGICAL COURSE and expand the partnership. The aim of the
methodological course is to present research perspectives on processes of everyday life and relate
them to potentials, challenges and limitations of research methods developed within these
perspectives. The course presents methodologies for studying everyday life by concentrating on
different data gathering and analysing methods, namely video-based methods, diary methods and
interview and observation methods. The encouraging feedback from course organized 2008-2009
has proven the need to continue the series of these short methodological courses. These courses
give also valuable experience on running courses in international co-operation. This is important
for the joint Master degree in future.
Universities taking part in joint study programme are:
University of Helsinki, Department of Home Economics and Craft Science
University of Linköping Sweden, Theme department: Theme Technology and Social Change
University of Roskilde, Denmark, Department of Psychology and Educations
For this application round there are three new partners:
University of Stavanger, Norway, Department of Social Studies
University of Tallin, Estonia, Department of Social Policy
University of Helsinki, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Social Policy
The funding applied here (Nordplus Framework Pogramme 2008-2011) shall make these (four
different activities) short time goals possible.
Added value
None of the collaborating universities would be able to produce this kind of teaching on their own.
The shared expertise is not only economical but highly beneficial regarding the development of
study programmes and research in each partner University. At the master level the number a
students is rather small so it is almost obligatory to co-operate in order to produce high quality
courses. Participating students will benefit greatly as they are able to expanding their networks
within the Nordic-Baltic countries and learn scientifically to explore the everyday life with its
complexities. They can apply their knowledge and expertise in their future professions in the fields
such as education, research, social work and food service management. Number of new partners
at this application round shows how attractive the co-operation has been.

Mobilitetsprojektet er nytænkning, idet det er et samarbejde mellem en praksisinstitution og
undervisningsverdenen.
Formålet med projektet er at bringe den praktiske konkrete verden ind i undervisningsmiljøet,
samt at diskuterer de teoretiske indfaldsvinkler, der anvendes i det socialpædagogiske arbejde
med selvskadede, selvmordstruede, omsorgssvigtede børn og børn med generelle sociale
vanskeligheder. Herunder en afdækning af forskellige metoders anvendelighed både i teori og
praksis i henholdsvis Grønland og Danmark.
I hvor høj grad er den teori der anvendes på uddannelsesinstitutionerne brugbare i forhold til
praksis og hvilke muligheder er der for at udvikle nye teorier i arbejdet med særlig udsatte børn.
Projektet tænkes i år startet som et mobilitetsprojekt, hvor fagligt kompetente personer fra
behandlingshjemmet Himmelbjergården skal undervis og diskuterer deres faglige praksis med
meritstuderende fra Pædagoguddannelsen Grenå Via Universyty College og meritstuderende fra
Socialpædagogisk Seminarium i Grønland.

Nedenstående beskrivelse skal ses på baggrund af tidligere ansøgninger og bevillinger.
Netværket bestående af 5 uddannelsesinstitutioner i Norden er nu kommet så langt i sin udvikling,
at et kontinuerligt samarbejde er etableret og gennemføres med deltagelse af alle 6
uddannelsessteder på både studenter - og lærerplan.
På studenterplan gælder det primært vedr. udvekslinger af praktikuddannelsessteder, som giver
megen inspiration og forståelse til den enkelte deltager, men som også giver inspiration til det
forsatte studiearbejde i eget studiemiljø.
På Lærerplan har udviklingen gået fra gensidig indsigt og forståelse af studieplaner og strukturelt
til mere præcise faglige udveksling og inspiration, gennem gensidige besøg.
At kontakterne på både studenter- og lærerplan også er inspirerende og givende på individuelt og
Kulturelt plan, gør ikke udviklingen ringere.
Netværket er nu udvidet til ikke alene at omfatte de studerendes praktik men også særlige
studieperioder i teorisemestre, hvor de studerende p. g. a. forskelle i studiernes indhold,
tilrettelæggelse og arbejdermetoder vil kunne indhente ny viden til gavn for den enkelte
studerende, men også til inspiration på eget uddannelsessted hvilket stadig er på forsøgsstadie,
men meget positivt.
Netværket betyder i dag meget for studerende, lærere og studiestedernes gensidig udveksling.

Network description
The purpose is to increase the knowledge on social work across the Nordic countries. This is done
via active teacher and student exchanges, the latter represented primarily by practical studies at
partner institutions. The network has also included Nordic cultural aspects in the social work
discipline through two successful intensive courses (Cultural Pedagogics and the Good Life in 2004
and Empowerment in 2006) which have resulted in closer cooperation and better inter-Nordic
understanding. The topic of the next intensive meeting will be Caring Work in Social Sciences.
Regular contact with the partner institutions generates confidence which is important in the
Norpaed cooperation. In order to involve all parties in the network and its activities, each
institution in turn takes responsibility for the coordinatorship. The network was enlarged in 2005,
including also the Faroe Islands, a positive partner with new perspectives. The cooperation works
very well and the partners meet several times during the year, both at network meetings but also
for the planning and implementation of the intensive courses. Over the past years the financial
support from Nordplus has been considerably reduced at the same time as the activity has
increased. This means that several exchange students and teachers have made use of the
Erasmus grants. We hope to reverse this tendency.

Network description
The Consortium deals with Transition Studies, understood as the study of fundamental economic,
political, and social changes. Transition is not a sui generis problem related exclusively to post-
Communist countries. Rather, the lessons learned from the post-Communist experiences might be
extended to non-Communist countries having experienced fundamental institutional breakdowns.
The study of transition related topics has thus both scholarly interest and political relevance. The
purpose of the Consortium is to establish a standing forum for the improvement of teaching and
learning within the interdisciplinary field of Transition Studies. The activities of the Consortium
include (1) development of common curricula and teaching methodologies, (2) teacher and student
express mobility visits facilitating the establishment of enduring cross-cutting contacts among the
participating institutions, their faculty, and students, and (3) dissemination of the result both
among partners and to a broader audience, including political decision makers.

Library and Information Science is a narrow discipline in the Nordic and Baltic countries, with few
and small milieus, but still internationally well known for its academic contributions to the field.
Being relatively few, and covering a wide range of topics, it is vital to draw upon each others
experience. The main purpose of the network is to be an arena for sharing knowledge in the fields
of teaching and research within Library and Information Science. By cooperating and working
together towards a common goal, increasing cooperation between the Nordic/Baltic
countries/partners, the network believes that positive results will be seen. More cooperation and
better understanding of education, research etc. will lead to cooperation over national boarders
and further development of common projects.

Nordplus netværket i medier og kommunikation har som mål at fremme udveksling af studerende
og undervisere mellem institutioner, som giver undervisning i forskellige aspekter af fagfeltet
medier og kommunikation i Norden, herunder også film.
Fagfeltet medier og kommunikation er meget bredt, og der gives ikke lige specialiseret
undervisning inden for alle områder på de i netværket deltagende institutioner. Faget dækker i
stikordsform: kommunikationsformer, mediesamfundet, medieinstitutioner, mediebudskaber,
mediereception og publikum, og omfatter forskningsretninger/specialiseringer som
massekommunikation, medievidenskab, journalistik, filmvidenskab, medieteknologi, nye medier.
Netværket omfatter de vigtigste miljøer i Norden, som giver undervisning i medier og
kommunikation, herunder også film - i alt 15 institutioner fra de 5 nordiske lande og Grønland.
Der søges derfor netværksmidler samt mobilitetsstipendier for studerende og undervisere for i alt
18 samarbejdspartnere - 1 applicant/koordinator (Institut for Informations- og Medievidenskab,
Aarhus Universitet) og 17 co-applicants.
Bemærk venligst at der er forskel på titlen på Applicant LOI og LOIs fra Co-applicants. Dette
skyldes at det har været nødvendigt at ændre titlen så sent i processen at det var umuligt at nå at
fremsende nye LOIs til Co-applicants. Men da projekt id'et er det samme bør det være problemfrit
at sammenholde Applicant LOI med Co-applicant LOI's

Network description
Nordic Master School in Innovative ICT (NMS in iICT) is based on the extension of the Nordic
Master Program on Innovative ICT, which was one of the five granted Nordic Master Porgrams by
Nordic Council of Ministers. The Nordic Master Program on Innovative ICT (NMP) was a TUCS
coordinated pilot project for 2007-2008. The NMP pilot project was based on cooperation and
further development of existing international ICT master programs (120 ECTS) at five universities:
TUCS (ÅA, UTU, TSE), KTH and DTU.
This is an application for continuation of funding of a last year proposed 3-year programme. In the
Nordic Master School programme for NordPlus the project activity extension of the NMP
programme covers three aspects: (i) partnership extension to Baltic area, (ii) extension of the
program to include also national students (whereas NMP is targeting international students only),
and (iii) extension of activities to cover quality issues in multiple ways and empower the future
development of the extensive and long-term strategic cooperation and deeper networking among
partners. The NMS iICT is a virtual umbrella organization that covers all ICT Master level education
in the partner universities. As the pool of eligible students in the NMP was around 900 students
participating to international educational programs in partner universities, and this NMS iICT
programme doubles the participating number of students building one of the largest educational
initiative in the world with ICT and innovation focus. While the purpose of the NMP was to attract
more top overseas students to the Nordic Universities with excellent specialization possibilities and
innovation studies, the aim of the NMS iICT is to network the Nordic-Baltic universities more
efficiently in order to strengthen the build-up of the Nordic innovation powerhouse concept and
awareness and increase the quality, attractiveness and competence of the ICT education within
participating universities for the local students.
The NMS iICT network extends the NMP partnerships into Estonia: the Tallinn University of
Technology has joined the network. We see that the Baltic belongs to this project of building the
strong Baltic Sea Region dimension to Nordic Innovation Powerhouse cooperation as an essential
part.
We have noted that in order to win in the future competition, efficient networking is crucial.
Network activities help in the quality follow-up and development, as the contacts will be more
frequent and the studies need to be synchronized. The NMS iICT is the first step in a long-term
sustainable cooperation. As we have the platform and the network ready, it will become
increasingly easier to build new projects and activities on it. We need to reform many old
practices, administrative processes, bureaucracies, ways of thinking and doing things in the Nordic
universities in order the enhance the quality of our educational programs in terms of technical
content and relevance, student quality and study outcomes, efficiency, and quality assurance
measures. These new practices mean in the first place the integration of the business studies into
technology studies, increased mobility of teachers and students and the network-thinking. We will
be able to increase the quality of the education by learning from each other’s experiences in the
network through sharing and disseminating experiences and best practices and formulating new
operational joint objectives and measures based on this.
It is important to educate the ICT students not only in technology, but also in business skills and
make them business aware young professionals already right upon graduation, as well as
encourage them to build their own companies. The Nordic values, democracy, tolerance, safety,
which helped us to boost the ICT-success among the first in the world, will enable us to create
innovations and grow towards a Nordic Innovation Powerhouse providing a sustainable growth in
our societies.
The specific aims of this NMS iICT Nordplus project is
•       Promote excellence in education and cultural integration through integrating national ICT
educational programs to international programs, enhancing mobility targeting towards concrete
individual study outcomes of participating students, and contributing and promoting Nordic
Innovation Powerhouse concepts center around Baltic Sea with a clear Baltic-Nordic identity and
global visibility
•       Promoting a new phase of university networking by introducing virtual school concept; NMS
iICT, which is empowering new innovation and quality measures in our master educational system
through actively disseminating best practices, and through creating new innovative concepts and
operational models. NMS iICT works as empowering platform for strategic and far reaching
university and faculty cooperation in the ICT sector.
•       Renewal and enlargement of the Nordic Master Program on Innovative ICT network,
development new joint study programs (like innovation and entrepreneurship in ICT joint modules)
and coordinating and developing focus and interaction between existing study programs, and
developing new joint program curriculum (e.g. towards Erasmus Mundus).
•       Development of sustainable and long-term strategic partnership between participating
universities and faculties, which can extended beyond NordPlus e.g. towards next generation Marie
Curie EU programs, EU outreach programs towards developing economies, and towards Knowledge
and Innovation Community educational content in the coming European Institute of Technology.
NMS iICT will provide a virtual school platform for various outreach activities resulting to extensive
and long term cooperation.
•       To expand NMP platform, the virtual school structure, with new Baltic-Nordic partners who
are committed to share the same vision and are committed to act openly in a new networked
structure. The natural way for this is the new initiatives to be taken within NMS iICT as mentioned
in the paragraph above.
