On Tuesday 10 April 2012, a meeting was held at SASNET’s office in Lund between representatives of SASNET (Anna Lindberg, director, and Lars Eklund, deputy director); the Nordic Centre in India (NCI) university consortium (Kristina Myrvold, director); and Lund University (Henrik Hofvendahl, International Programme Officer at the Division of External Relations). The aim was to explore the possibility of various forms of increased collaboration between SASNET, based at Lund University, and the Nordic Centre in India. Several ideas were discussed and may be realised within a near future.
NCI is a consortium consisting of currently 19 Nordic universities. It runs summer courses and a semester programme in India, and collaborates with the International Institute for Population Sciences (IIPS) in Mumbai; the Institute for Social and Economic Change (ISEC) in Bangalore; Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in Delhi; University of Hyderabad (UoH) in Hyderabad; and South Asia Institute (SAI) in Heidelberg. Dr. Kristina Myrvold took over as new director for NCI on a 50 % basis from 1 March 2012. Besides, she is working as a researcher at the Dept. of History and Anthropology of Religion, Lund University.
