Welcome to NORDYRK

NordYrk is a Nordic research network on vocational education and training. The participating countries are Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland.
The network is important to strengthen the research base of the field and to promote cooperation and knowledge development on vocational issues in the Nordic countries. As you will see from these web pages, some information is in English, and some in a Scandinavian language. An annual conference is organised, visited by researchers, teacher educators for vocational teacher training students, and actors in the field.

NordYrk 2021 Conference

The NordYrk 2021 Conference will be hosted by Linköping University, Sweden, June 7–9. Deadline for submission of abstract is January 31, 2021. The conference will, if possible, take place at one of the campuses in either Linköping or Norrköping. If the situation, due to the corona-pandemic, will make it impossible to meet in Sweden, the conference will be organized as a digital conference. You find more information at the conference page.


The Nordic Journal of Vocational Education and Training (NJVET) is published on behalf of NordYrk.
