Nordic Collaboration in Doctoral Education in Health Sciences
The Nordic collaboration of the Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish doctoral education in health sciences started in 2009. The Finnish Doctoral Education Network in Nursing Science organizes a research symposium of the doctoral candidates in collaboration with Norwegian and Swedish partners annually.
