NORIA is a term for the Nordic Research and Innovation Area, introduced by the Nordic Council of Ministers in 2004.

Inspired by the EU's concept "the European Research Area" (ERA) a Nordic counterpart was introduced: "The Nordic Research and Innovation Area" (NORIA). The vision of NORIA is to make Nordic research and innovation globally leading through strengthened Nordic regional cooperation.

Both ERA and NORIA seek to develop a research and innovation policy that transcends national boundaries.
