NordForsk is a platform for joint Nordic research and research policy development. The aim of the organization is to facilitate cooperation in all fields of research and research-driven innovation when this adds value to work being conducted in the Nordic countries.
The organisation has recently published three new policy briefs, which describe and analyse key aspects of Nordic research cooperation in an European context.
In the policy brief Enhancing the Effectiveness of Nordic Research Cooperation, they found that nearly one-half of the Nordic participants in the European Union Sixth and Seventh Framework Programmes had expressly sought out Nordic partners for their projects. Intra-Nordic collaboration was most extensive between Norway and Iceland.
NordForsk funds a range of networks and research training programs across most research fields. In the field of education they fund the research network Nordnet, which is chaired by Lejf Moos (Danish School of Education).
To be eligible for funding from NordForsk, projects must normally involve participants from at least three of the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) or autonomous areas (the Faroe Islands, Greenland and the Aaland Islands).

NERA would like to use the opportunity to wish all our members a nice summer , and will be back with new updates in August.
