Norway’s Ambassador to the U.S.,Kåre R. Aas, participated in a videoconferenced talk in Professor Christine Ingebristen’s course Scandinavia in World Affairs (Scan 326) as part of the Virtual Ambassador Program.
The program is a new Embassy initiative, where the Ambassador invites universities to participate in online interactive dialogue and learn more about Norway’s policies on topics such as the Arctic and NATO.
During the sessions, students are encouraged to ask the Ambassador questions via Twitter.
Ambassador Aas, mentioned his experience interacting with students from the University of Washington in his latest blog post on the Huffington Post titled “Cooperation on Research and Higher Education – Why Does it Matter?“.
