Nordic added value

Nordic added value in NordForsk projects
What type of Nordic added value is created in NordForsk funded projects? The figure below provides insight.
The figure shows what type of Nordic added value the projects produce. The data is extracted from live results in Researchfish in June 2022, at a time when 107 of 136 registered projects had reported Nordic added value..
