Summary: NORFACE Network Board Meeting, Dublin, 3 – 4 December 2018

by Anne Cukier (NWO)

The NORFACE Network Board had its semi-annual meeting on 3-4 December in Dublin, to discuss multiple issues relating to the NORFACE Network and its programmes. WSF Scientific Programme Coordinator Ellen Immergut presented the Dissemination Plan for the WSF programme to the Network Board, which was pleased to see the great progress of the programme and its research projects, as well as their various knowledge exchange activities. The Network Board also discussed the importance of synergy across the NORFACE programmes. In that light, the NORFACE partners supported the inclusion of best practices from the WSF programme into the NORFACE Dynamics of Inequality Across the Life-course (DIAL) programme (2016-2021), particularly relating to dissemination. At the Network Board meeting, the new NORFACE call on “Democratic governance in a turbulent age” was also launched. International research consortia are encouraged to submit their Outline Proposal to this call by 19 February 2019.
