The Sino-Norwegian Centre for the Study of Society and Environment (SINORSE) coordinates and initiates research and teaching about society and environment in collaboration between scholars, teachers, and students from the University of Oslo (UiO), Zhejiang University (ZJU), and Max Planck Institute for the History of Science.
SINORSE, which was established in 2019, facilitates student exchange at the postgraduate level. Research and teaching connected to SINORSE have a firm basis within the humanities and social sciences, but the cooperation also aims to build new research projects and teaching activities in collaboration with other disciplines, for instance within the natural sciences.
Projects and Workshops
Currently, SINORSE members Anna L. Ahlers (Lise Meitner Research Group China in the Global System of Science) and Shen Yongdong (ZJU) are starting work on a project on science-policy interactions in the Chinese local state, taking the field of biophysical environmental protection as an example.
