The NORIA-net will map strong research areas within the field of Nordic languages, language culture and communication in each of the Nordic countries and investigate where there is added value in more cooperation and consolidation of research efforts.
The aim of NORDFROST is to better understand how snow, frost and ice, and changes in their annual and seasonal patterns affect the trace gas and energy exchanges of high latitude ecosystems and particularly the boreal and arctic ones.
By using a combination of large observational databases of soil carbon content in forests, long-term forest management experiments and mathematical simulation models, the network will contribute to improving our understanding within the area of soil carbon sequestration.
NordURM aims to consolidate collaboration regarding research and research training on a Nordic level as well as to develop comparative research projects concerning unaccompanied refugee minors in the Nordic countries.
NORIA-net Arctic is a preparatory action to assess the potential for added value in a larger-scale joint Nordic research initiative responding to the societal challenges and opportunities that the Arctic region is confronted with.
NordForsk has initiated the “NORIA-net on Registries” with the aim to increase use of the unique data registries and biobanks in and between the Nordic countries, and thereby strengthening Nordic cooperation on registry-based research.
Researchers and plant breeders collaborate closely to help prepare the Nordic society for future climate changes. Plant genetic resources, mainly from NordGen, are selected on basis of realistic future scenarios. Production is measured, and environmental impacts assessed.
The network will provide interdisciplinary studies on the link between the physical climate systems, geographical distribution of fish, and effects on the management systems and economic potential for harvesting. Understanding these links will provide a strong basis for developing sound, long-term fisheries management and policy capable of effective adaptation and mitigation to future climate change for the fisheries.
This network contributes to developing a Nordic knowledge-base for policy making for the conservation, utilisation and investigation of animal genetic resources within adaptation and mitigation issues.
Arctic char; A species under threat and with great potentials in the age of climate change (NORDCHAR)
The Arctic char is a species under threat, well suited to be used as a model species for monitoring changes in the Nordic areas due to climate change. The NORDCHAR project focusses on both threats and opportunities involved in climate changes.
The network aims to develop knowledge, methods and germaplasm as the basis for future development of cultivars of perennial forage grasses and legumes adapted to the expected changing climates.
The Nordic countries have been pioneers in the development of registry-based biobanks. In this project, scientists within the Nordic region will be sharing information and infrastructure through a common biobank registry in order to enhance knowledge about the causes of colorectal cancer.
The HEXAnord-network will assist in building a shared framework for developing methods for processing health records and create a platform for mobility of researchers and students within the Nordic and Baltic countries.
NIDD aims to harmonise diagnostic working methods for dementia, and contribute to earlier and enhanced diagnostics.
The NORIA-net “Nordic evaluation of Sports Sciences” will evaluate sports science in the Nordic region in order to identify strengths and weaknesses, and the underlying causes. This can contribute to developing the scientific quality and the practical use of sports science in the Nordic countries.
The Nordic Network for International Research Policy Analysis (NIRPA) is a joint initiative taken by six Nordic research agencies. Its aim is to strengthen Nordic cooperation by understanding and dealing with the impact of globalisation on Nordic research and innovation policies.
The NORIA-net NRIN shall identify barriers and obstacles at a structural and organisational level for the development of Nordic research infrastructure cooperation, and to propose ways of overcoming such problems.
This NORIA-net aims to coordinate activities and disseminate best practices in bibliometrics, strengthening the expertise and international networking of the participating organisations.
NeIC (Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration) is a collaboration between the Nordic countries to facilitate the development of e-Infrastructure solutions for Nordic research
