International research cooperation
NordForsk has several, ongoing projects on research collaboration outside the Nordic region.
The mission of the Nordic Committee on Bioethics (NCBIO) is to foster co-operation between the Nordic countries by bringing together representatives from different backgrounds to discuss and analyse issues in bioethics in order to achieve greater awareness, promote common understanding, improve policy making and present internationally a Nordic perspective on bioethical Challenges.
NORIA-net on Registries and Biobanks
The “NORIA-net on Registers and Biobanks” was an expert group with representatives from national and Nordic research funding agencies and the research sector. The task was to identify suitable actions that could increase the use of the unique registers and biobanks in and between the Nordic countries, and thereby strengthening Nordic cooperation on register-based research.
