To strengthen research in the Nordic region, Forte is involved in several projects and networks that promote knowledge exchange between the Nordic countries. Read more about our current Nordic collaboration below.

NordForsk – Promoting Nordic collaboration within research

NordForsk is an organisation under the Nordic Council of Ministers which finances and promotes Nordic cooperation within research and research infrastructure. NordForsk acts as a liaison between the national research funding bodies at every level of research, from basic to more applied forms.

The majority of NordForsk’s work is organised into various research programs. Forte co-funds five of these research collaboration programmes. Two of them are in the planning phase: Digitalisation of Public Sector as well as Nordic Programme on Sustainable Urban Development and Smart Cities. The other three have been running for a longer time. Read more about them here:
