Nordic research collaboration funded by NordForsk contributes to better emergency agency and safer societies.

Extreme weather, pandemics, digital threats and violent extremism are by nature international.

This means that we should be international when dealing with these and other challenges to societal security. In NordForsk's interdisciplinary research programme on societal security, researchers in the Nordic countries, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands collaborate to produce new knowledge about vulnerability, resilience and preparedness.

This research contributes to increased critical competence within societal security in the Nordic countries—what we call Nordic added value.
