NordForsk shall facilitate effective and trustful research cooperation in the Nordic Region, and ensure that NordForsk funded research has the highest international quality and realises Nordic added value.
The current report is an update of the reports on Legislation on biotechnology in the Nordic countries published annually since 2014. Given the clear need for such overviews, the Nordic Committee on Bioethics decided to update the tables to reflect recent legal amendments. The aim of this report is to give the reader information on the current status in the different countries and a chance to compare the legal situation.
The report on The State of Open Science in the Nordic Countries: Enabling Data Science in the Nordic Region, written by Andreas Jaunsen on behalf NeIC, seeks to identify activities that can help to improve the conditions and means for enabling data-driven science in the Nordics. In particular, the relevance to EOSC and the greater visions of Open Science have emerged as an appropriate setting for this report.
This report summarises key research findings and their implications for educational policies in the Nordic countries. It concludes the first phase of the programme, which has entered into a second phase focusing on bridging the gap between research and practice.
In this working paper, we have used national publication databases in the Nordic countries to compare research in social sciences and the humanities in the higher education institutions. The findings are based on a data material that does not meet the same standards as the data used in the new NordForsk report Comparing Research at Nordic Higher Education Institutions – Covering the years 1999-2014, where Nordic higher education institutions are compared based on publication data from Clarivate Analytics’ Web of Science. The results documented in this short report, are of an exploratory nature, and should be interpreted and cited as such as well.
