Who and when?
We expect all 9 ESRs in NORA to participate. The theme of the school is important both for you and your career, and is of course an important part of all Marie Curie ITN projects.
It is essential that you follow the course synchronically: You will all start on Monday the 15th of February (week 7).
The school is a five-weeks’ course, but we have decided that you are to use two weeks per course week, i. e. you will spend 10 weeks altogether on the course.
In other words, the 5th NORA School runs from week 7 to 16, 2016.
Lars Bakken, Rob van Spanning, Åsa Frostegård and David Richardson have volunteered to provide “quality control” of the popular texts you write in the end of the course. The aim is to publish them as part of the NORA project's outreach activities, in popular journals, or on relevant websites.
