Researcher Zone

Articles written by researchers from universities and research institutions across the Nordics.

Researcher Zone articles are brought to you by ScienceNordic and our sister site, ForskerZonen (meaning Researcher Zone in Danish), part of Videnskab.dk.

Here, scientists write about their own research or research fields, in their own words.

In doing so they bring their expertise and knowledge out from the lab and into the open, where they can inform and help shape the public debate.

If you are a scientist based in the Nordic countries and would like to write for us, you can contact us here.
