The Nordic network for Health Policy, Health Management, and Health Services Research

The Nordic network for Health Policy, Health Management, and Health Services Research provides a Nordic arena for researchers to discuss, share their ideas and network. A focus on Nordic health systems is particularly relevant due to the increasing importance of health to national and international politics, and the many recent policy initiatives and reforms changing the outline of the Nordic health systems. Through the Nordic network we can share experiences, broaden our knowledge base and find new ways to collaborate.

The Nordic network for Health Policy, Health Management, and Health Services Research is organizing its fourth workshop this May 2021. 

  • Because of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic the workshop will be held online by using Zoom.
  • The workshop runs on 18th – 20th of May on 13-16 EET (12-15 CET, 11-14 GMT).
  • On each of the three afternoon sessions we will have 60 min plenary session and 90 min paper sessions organized into parallel sessions in Zoom’s breakout rooms. The detailed program will follow soon.
  • Registration will open in March. Last day for registration is 4th of May 2021. You may register to the workshop without presenting a paper
