The roots of the Internordiskt Studentmöte aka INS (”The Inter-Nordic Student Meeting”) lie in the great Scandinavian student meetings that were held in the 1800’s, originally comprising of Swedish and Danish students. Later on, students from Finland and Norway joined the meetings as well. These Scandinavian student meetings were held only occasionally at first, but after INS 2010 in Helsinki, they have been organised regularly every other year. INS is hosted by the student nations of participating countries in turn.
The goal of INS is to offer its participants the chance to meet other Nordic students and learn about their organisations over a weekend. The participants are invited from student nations and other student organisations in Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. The day programme includes seminars and workshops based on the year’s INS themes and the evenings are spent at traditional academic dinner parties. Nurturing the Nordic co-operation is important, and INS is arguably one of the best and most entertaining ways of doing it!
