The Sino-Nordic Welfare Research Network (SNoW) was established in 2010, and has been funded by NordForsk and the Nordic Council of Ministers during 2011-2015. The University of Bergen provided basic funding in 2016. The Nordic Centre at Fudan University and the Norwegian General Consulate in Shanghai have contributed to funding of PhD courses and/or workshops/conferences. There is no basic funding as of 2017, but activities will take place on the basis of ad-hoc funding from various sources. As of 2017, the quarterly newsletter will not anymore be published on a regular basis. The SNoW project is directed by Professor Stein Kuhnle, Department of Comparative Politics, University of Bergen.
Most recent activity: A joint workshop with Sino-Nordic Welfare Laboratory, Institute of Sociology, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Beijing, was organized on 27-28 August 2018 in Beijing, on the topic of "Comparative welfare regimes: Governance Innovation and Social Service Provision".
