Nordic added value
We seek to promote Nordic added value in all our research programmes and projects.
What is Nordic added value?
It is Nordic added value when research activities promote the creation of innovations in the Nordic region, and when research leads to regional mobility and networking among the Nordic countries. These are two of several examples.
