Research policy and cooperation at a Nordic level
Research is a priority for the Nordic countries. This is reflected in international statistics and ranking lists. The publication rate is high, and all the Nordic countries score above the world average on international citation indexes.
The Nordic countries are small, but the potential to cooperate in research is great. The institutions in the various Nordic countries function in quite similar ways, we know each other well, and often work by the same principles. By working together we can strengthen the Nordic countries' competitiveness in the international research arena.
