NordForsk Health and Welfare Programme

Start-up seminar for NordForsk health and welfare programme

Time and place


Radisson Scandinavia Blu Hotel,Oslo 08.03.2012 from 11:00 to 18:00

NordForsk in collaboration with the Norwegian Presidency for the Nordic Council of Ministers, is organising a kick-off for the consultation process for a new Nordic programme within health and welfare.


Health and welfare is high on the political agenda. The Nordic countries have common policy challenges, and at the same time documented research strengths in several areas related to health and welfare. This is documented in several Nordic reports recently published by the Nordic research councils and NordForsk that specifically identifies the added value of Nordic collaboration.


The purpose of the kick-off is to discuss Nordic strengths within research on health and welfare and how these could be further developed into a thematic programme. As a starting point health and welfare are broadly defined.
