NOVA is a university cooperation aimed at supporting the understanding of major global challenges in a Nordic context. Together we provide high quality PhD-level courses in subjects related to agricultural, forestry and veterinary sciences, and support PhD- and post-graduate veterinarian specialisation students and NOVA’s scientists in building international scientific networks.
Starting April 2020, NOVA has a revised collaboration model. The new model still provides the opportunity for teachers to organise high quality PhD courses in collaboration with colleagues at other NOVA universities and with participants from NOVA universities and other international universities/organisations. To facilitate networking and in order for the students to get practical experiences, courses typically include on-site field/lab/classroom modules.
In the new NOVA model, course organisers apply for NOVA course funding at their respective home universities.
