Students meet researchers to discuss topics of the day.

In the New Nordic Lexicon Podcast series, young people put questions to researchers on topics that interest them.

We have held recording sessions with students and researchers from across the Nordic countries in the podcast studios of various universities to bring you research that is helpful and interesting to what is happening in the world today!

Most of the episodes are in English, but we will also have some in Danish, Norwegian and Swedish.
