Nordic Global Health Talks logo

A monthly webinar series about global health from the Nordic universities

The first Wednesday of each month at 10.00 AM CET, you can tune in online via Zoom and listen to an interesting global health lecture from a Nordic university. It is free and open to everyone interested in knowing more about Nordic global health research, education and collaborative projects.

Nordic Global Health Talks will open the doors to new and emerging global health challenges and opportunities experienced in the Nordic region and among communities around the world. The talks will provide you with information about new research, and you will be inspired by new methods and approaches representing a diversity of disciplines and sectors. Maybe you will even find people to collaborate with in the future?

Through this webinar series, you will learn about the specific global health capacities, areas of excellence and specialization of the Nordic universities and our global collaborators. By telling about our research, emerging themes within global health and advances in global health education, we hope to show you some of the ways that the Nordic region is attractive within global health – both for studying, working and for doing research.

Each webinar will be 45 minutes, approximately 30 minutes presentation followed by a 15 minutes Q&A. 


You must register to participate. If you have registered once, you can choose one or more occurrences to attend.
