On May 25th 2018, our PhD-forum was accepted as a member of Stipendiatorganisasjonene i Norge (SiN) (Fellowship Organizations in Norway). SiN is a joint committee of local organizations for doctoral candidates and post doctors at Norwegian colleges and universities. SiN functions as a network promoting contacts between its member organizations and expressing joint opinions on political issues concerning education and research, and other issues relevant to the member organizations.
The leader of PhD-forum, Annette V. Hauger, has also been elected member of the SiN board. This gives us an opportunity to influence politics on a higher level than OsloMet and join forces with other universities in Norway in cases where this is relevant.
