About the Nordic Network for Philosophy of Medicine and Medical Ethics
The network has been financed by Nordforsk between January 1, 2009 and December 12, 2011. From 2012 the network continues.
The final report to Nordforsk about the network is available here.
The aim of this planned network is to establish the identity of philosophy of medicine in the Nordic/Baltic countries by considering both institutional and academic conditions for research and the education of researchers. We will encourage the initiation of new joint research projects and by making the subject more visible we hope to increase the number of doctoral students. our intention is that the network shall after the three year period be converted into a permanent Nordic/Baltic society for philosophy of medicine.
