Activities and operations:
NordForsk aims to increase the consistency, effect and productivity of Nordic research cooperation
Aquaculture is a growing global business, which faces many facets of sustainability challenges. The overarching aim of the Programme is to generate knowledge and solutions for sustainable land-based and marine salmonid aquaculture in the Nordic countries.
The Joint Nordic Initiative on Arctic Research has been established to generate new insight into the challenges and new opportunities confronting the Arctic region.
The objective of the Nordic Bioeconomy Programme is to generate new knowledge on how to promote and advance the transition to a bioeconomy-based society in the Nordic countries.
The overarching aim of the programme is to combine and integrate knowledge-based, digital innovation efforts with research on the related effects and impact on society and end-users.
The aim of the thematic programme Education for Tomorrow is to generate new knowledge about the Nordic educational systems that will better equip them to meet the needs of society.
The Nordic region is the European leader in gender equality, but when it comes to leadership positions in research and innovation, men dominate just as widely here as in the rest of Europe.
Nordic Innovation, NordForsk and Nordic Energy Research have joined forces on this research and innovation programme with the aim of accelerating the transition towards a sustainable Nordic society.
