Nordic Network for Research in Biomedical Law
The aim of the Nordic Network for Research in Biomedical Law is to provide an opportunity for Nordic researchers in the field biomedical law to exchange information and discuss legislative developments and interesting areas of research, thereby stimulating different forms of increased Nordic cooperation in research and doctoral studies in biomedical law. In order to achieve this, the network arranges Nordic meetings and conferences at regular intervals, tries to encourage and facilitate joint research projects and publications, and provides a continuous forum for exchange of information at this web page.
The network was founded at the first Nordic Medical Law Meeting in Uppsala, March 31 – April 2, 2006. During the period 1 October 2007 – 30 September 2011, the network enjoyed generous funding from NordForsk. The network is coordinated by the Law Faculty of Uppsala University, with Professor Elisabeth Rynning as project leader. There is also a management group with representives from the other Nordic countries.
Membership in the network is open to all Nordic researchers, teachers and research students in the field of biomedical law. The network definition of the term “biomedical law” is wide, incorporating all topics traditionally pertaining to medical law, heath care law and health law.
If you are interested in the network, please get in touch with the appointed contact person representing your country, for further information. Welcome to join us!
