It's ten years since NordForsk was established and this milestone is marked by an anniversary insert looking back at the early days and important events that have shaped NordForsk to the organisation it is today.
NordForsk Magazine 2015 includes an interview with Denmark's Minister for Culture and Ecclesiastical Affairs, Bertel Haarder, and the former Icelandic Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir. Professor Erland Hjelmquist shares his thoughts about NordForsk health and welfare programme, and Chair of the Programme Committee, Fredrik Melander, presents the new Joint Nordic programme for neutron research.
The Prime Ministers’ pioneering Nordic cooperative effort became the Top-level Research Initiative. This book describes some of the important results from the initiative by the five Nordic Prime Ministers: Geir H. Haarde, Jens Stoltenberg, Anders Fogh Rasmussen,Fredrik Reinfeldt, Matti Vanhanen.
This report is based on the work of the NORIA-net on Registers and Biobanks (NRB), a Nordic working group of key actors involved in Nordic research and research policy at the national level. Nordic register-based research has the potential to attract international interest and to enable the Nordic research community to take the international lead in this field.
While preparing its report, NRIN (NORIA-net Research Infrastructures Network) commissioned an evaluation of Nordic participation in international research cooperation. A pilot project for this evaluation examined the NORDSYNC membership of the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF).
The NORIA-net “Nordic Research Infrastructures Network” (NRIN) was launched in 2009 with the aim of strengthening Nordic cooperation on research infrastructure. NRIN’s work culminated in the report “Enhancing Nordic Research Infrastructure Cooperation”, which offers a number of recommendations.
