At the recent kick-off conference for the programme, a pleased Executive Director Jesper Simonsen of the Research Council stated that the Norwegian educational sector and educational research are clearly in a very positive phase.

“The FINNUT programme has been established to further develop knowledge institutions and the overall administration of education to the benefit of pupils, teachers and society at large.
