The Centre for Arctic Policy Studies has since spring 2013 managed the preparation of a joint Nordic Master Programme. The project concerns the development of a joint master programme focusing on issues of particular relevance to the West Nordic area. This is an interdisciplinary programme entitled West Nordic Studies, Governance and Sustainable Management and one of its aims is to encourage mobility within the region. The consortium consists of five universities: The University of Iceland, the University of Akureyri, the University of Greenland, the University of the Faroe Islands and Nordland University in Norway. The programme will be launched in fall 2015. For further information visit www.westnordicstudies.net.
