NOVA University Network

The Nordic Forestry, Veterinary and Agricultural University Network is a platform for efficient and innovative Nordic cooperation, exploring new ways to forge a networking university without boundaries.



SoilSoc Partner Institutions

SoilSoc SoilSoc is an inclusive, not an exclusive network. Our aim is to connect all Nordic teachers, researchers and students in all the fields of soil science.

In addition to SoilSoc Nodes in the NOVA universities, SoilSoc therefore has Linked Nodes in Partner Institutions. Partner Institutions can be non-NOVA universities, research institutions or even companies, that want to participate in and benefit from the SoilSoc collaboration.

The Linked Nodes are contact persons working in the Partner Institutions.They are important regarding the mapping of Nordic Soil Expertise, one of the aims of the SoilSoc network.

For students the Partner Institutions can provide for example places for practical training and thesis projects.
