The EADI Nordic conference is a joint partnership between EADI (European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes), NFU (Norwegian Association of Development Research), the University of Bergen (UIB) and the Chr. Michelsen Institute (CMI).

The EADI General Conference is organized every third year. It serves as the association’s public forum for academic exchange, reflection and debate on pressing global and developmental questions. In the Nordic context, a biennial Nordic Development conference is organized by one of the respective national development research associations, the most recent one held in Gothenburg in 2015. In 2017, EADI and NFU join forces together with the University of Bergen (UIB) as the local host to invite scholars, policymakers and practitioners to a three-day conference to engage in new approaches to understand global challenges and reflect on paths forward.
