The Erasmus+ DISH project

A PhD candidate has joined the DISH project to do a research-based evaluation of the DISH concepts

Western Norway University of Applied Sciences has engaged a PhD candidate in the DISH project

Susanne Eriksen started as a PhD candidate the 1st of February 2021, and her position will last for four years. The PhD – project is funded by the Ministry of Education and Research in Norway. As the DISH project is more of an innovation project, the aim of the PhD-project is to complement the DISH project with a research-based evaluation of the DISH concepts and the innovation processes in the triple helix partnerships.

The fieldwork will take place at test sites in Norway and Denmark. Data will be collected through focus group interviews, individual interviews and participant observations. The data collection aims to gather inputs from several involved actors; leaders, organizational staff, learning facilitators, health care workers and other relevant stakeholders at the sites in order to assess the usability and the relevance of the developed concepts.
