This survey conducted among participants in Nordic research network and research training course activities in the 1999-2005 period shows that 90% of the project participants continue collaborating after Nordic funding has ended.
One in five respondents have applied for EU funding as a direct result of the Nordic collaboration. More than half the activities included partners from the Baltic countries, 28% involved partners from Russia. Eight in ten would find it impossible to carry out their activity without the support from NordForsk (or former NorFA). Most respondents find the application procedures clear and easily accessible. NordForsk is not perceived to be overly bureaucratic, and most people are satisfied with their communication with the responsible NordForsk staff.
