Virtual Nordic ISS Seminar Consortium is an informal group of schools that has been engaged in virtual seminars since Fall 2020. You can see the list of participating schools here.

In Fall 2020, we had presentations by researchers in each of the participating school. Check the Fall 2020 seminars

In Spring 2021,  the speakers were esteemed IS scholars who have their origins in one of the Nordic countries, but who are currently working elsewhere in the world. Check the Spring 2021 seminars

In Fall 2021, we had a series of presentations with a theme of "Impactful publications and how to get there?". The idea was to present examples of impactful publications by authors now in the faculty in one of the participating Universities. These papers have either been out a while (some 10 years or more) and can be said to be impactful in one way or another (e.g. citations but by other “measures” also), or are more recent top publications (Basket of 8, FT50, ABS4,…) that can be expected to become impactful.

Please disseminate information about the virtual seminars to your colleagues and doctoral students.
