Apply for membership in the Norwegian research school on digitalization, culture and society (DIGIT)

CEDIC is the host for a new national research school.

Are you a PhD candidate or postdoctoral researcher working on digitalisation? Do you want to be part of a larger network of researchers and practitioners working at the intersection of digitalisation, culture and society? The enrollment of membership in the National Research School on Digitalisation, Culture and Society (DIGIT) is know open. 

The research school DIGIT first started in 2022. It is a collaboration between seven Norwegian universities, one research institute and six partners from the public and private sectors, and is coordinated by the Research Centre for Digitalisation of Public Services and Social Citizenship (CEDIC) at OsloMet. The school is funded by the Research Council of Norway and offers a two-year programme of high academic quality and workplace relevance for PhD candidates or postdocs registered at Norwegian universities. 

Admission for 2024 is now open!

Interested in a membership?

As a DIGIT member, you will have the opportunity to attend seminars and lectures at the intersection of digitalisation, culture and society. The two-year programme offers writing courses, internship opportunities, professional activities and networking both within and outside the university environment, nationally and internationally. 

Most members have an academic background in the social sciences or humanities, but DIGIT also welcomes applicants from other research fields. However, it would be advantageous to explain how the membership and the project are relevant to the School's thematic basis.

What does a membership include? 

New classes start with a joint session during the kick-off seminar in November/December. Here, participants and partners meet to get to know each other and to take part in a professional programme of relevant lectures, panel discussions and round tables. Furthermore, the following activities are central to the School's two-year programme: 

It is possible to be a member of several research schools at the same time. There are no costs associated with participation, but some of the activities - such as the kick-off seminar in November/December - are compulsory. You are admitted for two years and receive a diploma upon completion of the research school.

How to apply
