Centre for Arctic and Global Health (SAG) is a network centre for researchers and health institutions that is working to promote cross-border cooperation in Northern Norway. As an advisor in SAG I coordinate projects in global health at UiT The Arctic University of Norway and the University Hospital in Northern Norway. The tasks are very diverse, and includes advice on relevant cooperation partners, dissemination of information on initiatives in global health, assistance in writing applications, science communication, mapping of funding opportunities, in addition to general project coordination.
Moreover, I am engaged in the Norwegian Research School of Global Health and the national global health network Global Health Norway on behalf of UiT.
