Higher education Mirella Nordblad

Finnish Education Evaluation Centre (FINEEC) organises a Nordic conference on 14 June 2016 in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Culture.


The conference is part of the 2016 Finnish presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers and it is organised in connection with the work of the Nordic Council of Ministers’ ad hoc group for quality in higher education. The task given to the ad hoc group was to discuss current challenges in relation to the quality of higher education and to propose new forms of Nordic cooperation.

The aim of the conference is to enhance Nordic cooperation in the field of quality in higher education, by bringing together members of the academic community to share expertise, experiences and good practices related to the student-centred approach. The conference programme will highlight current research as well as present cases from the Nordic countries. The keynote speaker is professor Björn Stensaker from the University of Oslo.
