    Project Hovdabrekka originated at the Nordic conference for journalist teachers at Hovdabrekka, Iceland September 2004, where a small group of scientists/lecturers assembled with a desire to do a comparative quantitative study of students at Nordic journalism schools.

    Until very recently, there existed little systematic knowledge on the students of journalism in the Nordic countries. For these reasons, the Hovdabrekka group planned and sent out a web-survey to new students at 19 schools of journalism in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland at the start of the autumn semestre in 2005, and repeated the survey (this time to every student at every level) in 2008. See the menu for more information.
