The report Improving research capabilities – An evaluation of the possibilities for increased Nordic cooperation on research infrastructures, the latest issue in our series NordForsk Policy Briefs, provides an overview of current policies for research infrastructures in the Nordic countries and Europe and evaluates the scope for increased Nordic coordination.
Research infrastructures are an essential precondition for gaining new scientific insights and the development of new infrastructures is an important element in science policy. Larger infrastructures are technologically and economically demanding to construct, and their realisation is often dependent upon extensive international cooperation. The author provides an overview of current policies for research infrastructures in the Nordic countries and Europe and identifies some alternative paths for increased Nordic cooperation and coordination in this area.
