Northern Capacity Building
and Cooperation in Higher Education
Roskilde May 26-27, 2000
There is a large existing basis of knowledge and expertise in relation
to cooperation in higher education, between educational institutions
focusing on the development in the Circumpolar North. It is obvious,
however, that there are still many problems to be resolved. Especially
in relation to further cooperation between different disciplines, and
across traditions and cultural starting points. At the same time there
is a growing awareness of a potential for tensions between the needs of
the local communities in the north, and the experiences and aspirations
of the research and education institutions involved in the Northern
The purpose of the workshop is to have a forum for exchange of
experience in connection with the Norther Capacity building. The focus
of the workshop will be on possible obstacles and potential measures in
relation to an increased inter-disciplinary, inter-institutional and
inter-cultural cooperation in the future.
