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. The programme will help to renew the research field, promote innovation in the sector and serve as a collaborative arena for all of the actor groups involved,” explains Mr Simonsen.
