    Development in Research: An Outline of the Science Systems in Russia and the Baltic States.2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The science systems in Russia and, even more so, the Baltic States have undergone radical change in the years following the break-up of the Soviet Union. Although this report does not aim to provide a thorough description of the Soviet science system1, it is nevertheless useful to give a very brief outline of the structures which Baltic and Russian policy-makers were confronting at the outset of systemic reforms in the early 1990s.

    Going Nordic – A NordForsk user survey: A survey among participants in NordForsk and NorFA networks and research training courses 1999-20052006Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    This survey conducted among participants in Nordic research network and research training course activities in the 1999-2005 period shows that 90% of the project participants continue collaborating after Nordic funding has ended.

    One in five respondents have applied for EU funding as a direct result of the Nordic collaboration.

    More than half the activities included partners from the Baltic countries, 28% involved partners from Russia.

    Eight in ten would find it impossible to carry out their activity without the support fromNordForsk (or former NorFA).

    Most respondents find the application procedures clear and easily accessible. NordForsk is not perceived to be overly bureaucratic, and most people are satisfied with their communication with the responsible NordForsk staff.

    Ten Years of Nordic Research Funding 2009-20182019Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    NordForsk was established by the Nordic Council of Ministers in 2005 and has funded more than 323 research projects and other activities over the years. NordForsk collaborates closely with the national research funding organisations in the Nordic countries. Since 2017, NordForsk has reached the goal of two-thirds of the budget coming from national research funders, and the remaining one-third coming from Nordic Council of Ministers. The remaining one-third of the budget has come from the basic funding from the Nordic Council of Ministers.

    The portfolio analysis Ten years of Nordic Research Funding 2009–2018 explores the development and distributions of funding to Nordic research cooperation within NordForsk during the years 2009–2018. NordForsk has in this period granted NOK 2 124 million to Nordic research cooperation through 49 calls. Out of the 1 358 unique applicants set as project leader, 323 have been granted funding.

    At least 2 640 researchers are involved as project leaders or participating researchers in funded Project Grants, Nordic Centres of Excellence and Nordic University Hubs. The proportions of female and male involved researchers have become more balanced in recent years, with precisely 50 per cent female and male researchers in grants awarded in 2018.

    Male project leaders have been granted 66 per cent of the total funding 2009–2018. Among the total submitted applications, 39 percent have a female project leader and 61 per cent a male project leader. The total approval rate is 14 per cent for both female and male project leaders. The results indicate that more male project leaders than female apply for calls with the highest grant allocations.

    Project leaders from Norway have had the highest approval rate (19 per cent) for calls for Project Grants, Nordic Centres of Excellence and Nordic University Hubs. Swedish project leaders have received the largest percentage of funding (30 per cent), followed by Norwegian (26 per cent) and Danish (23 per cent). This does not take into account that the nature of NordForsk funding means that it is distributed to involved researchers in several Nordic countries. We see that among involved researchers, the largest group is from the same country as the Project leader. Further, female project leaders tend to lead a more balanced group of female and male researchers than male project leaders.

    All 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals are, to some extent, addressed in the research funded since 2013. Thematic calls that encourage or require interdiscipli¬narity are common in the NordForsk portfolio, and most project leaders (68 per cent) also consider their research to be more interdisciplinary than disciplinary. Since 2013, NordForsk has funded research within all research areas. The largest percentage of funding has gone to research within Medical and Health Sciences, most common in Project Grants. Natural and Social Sciences have been funded to a similar degree, especially within Nordic Centres of Excellence and Nordic University Hubs. Within Nordic University Hubs most of the funding to Humanities and the Arts as well as Engineering and Technology can be found.

    A large part of funded research (77 per cent) is considered Strategic Basic Research or Applied Research. Almost half of funded research is either Pure Basic or Strategic Basic Research. 12 per cent is considered Experimental Development.

    A vision of a Nordic secure digital infrastructure for health data:: The Nordic Commons2019Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Nordic countries have individually and jointly identified the potential of secondary use of health data in research, health care and innovation. There is a need to enhance data quality and interoperability and make data machine-readable in order to lay the foundation for open science and innovation. Obstacles that impede data sharing such as legal, technical and procedural bottlenecks must be removed.

     

    This NordForsk report proposes a step-wise implementation of a Nordic Commons for health data building on national efforts. It would allow expansion to the Nordic level, with data more easily identified, shared, compiled and jointly analysed, and would give the Nordic region a competitive advantage. The Nordic Commons will provide a platform for conducting reproducible and open research for the benefit of Nordic public health and societies.

     

    The report includes suggestions for policy implications with specific recommendations directed towards the key actors required to implement a Nordic commons, e.g. the Nordic policy level, research and innovation funders, and data owners. Careful, coordinated and concrete actions are called for by all of these actors to realise the Nordic commons.

    Adding value to Nordic research cooperation: Recommendations for a new initiative on distribution of health2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Distribution of health is one of the challenges facing the Nordic countries and Europe. Although health and life expectancy have improved in the Nordic countries, inequalities in the distribution of health persist. The difference in mortality rates among different socio-economic groups, for instance, has grown greater. Although inequalities in the distribution of health may be viewed as a health-economic problem, this is above all an egalitarian issue related to the future development of the welfare state.

    The report gives an overview of research activities, funding and funding systems of relevance to research on health and welfare-related issues in the Nordic countries 2005-2010. Based on these findings, the report also provides policy recommendations to Nordic political circles, research funding agencies and NordForsk.

    Branding the Nordic Research and Innovation Area: Promoting the Nordic region as an attractive destination for global investments in research and innovation2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    As markets are opening up and capital, talent and other resources are becoming more mobile, the competition for investments in research and innovation has become increasingly fierce and continues to intensify.

    Against this background, a case can be made for initiating a joint Nordic effort aimed at profiling the region in the global marketplace in order to attract foreign investments in research and innovation. On a global market, the individual Nordic countries are very small and may find it difficult to make their voices heard. At the same time, the region has a long history of regional collaboration and several collaborative projects and Nordic initiatives are already underway to address the challenges of globalization. While there are certainly differences among the countries, in a global context the similarities are far more important.

    Hence, the ambition of the NordForsk policy brief “Branding the Nordic Research and Innovation Area” is two-fold; Firstly, to create a branding methodology which takes the special conditions of the Nordic region and the notion of research and innovation investments as point of departure. Secondly, to put forward a suggestion for a branding strategy, firmly grounded in Nordic strengths and set within the emerging global context of research and innovation investments.

    Comparing Research at Nordic Higher Education Institutions Using Bibliometric Indicators: Covering the years 1999-20142017Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    This report is both an update and an extension of two previous reports with the same title: “Comparing Research at Nordic Universities using Bibliometric Indicators” from 2011 and 2014. With the current report’s use of more years, more institutions and more subject fields, the figures are not directly comparable to the figures in the former two. Therefore, it should not be seen as an update of the former two reports; rather it replaces these.

    The main conclusion of the report is that we find relatively stable differences between the Nordic universities, university colleges and university hospitals. We find different research profiles and specialisations, and we find institutions with different volumes of research activity. By describing these differences, we want to bring attention to dimensions that one-dimensional global university rankings cannot capture.

    Some Nordic higher education institutions score on a very high international level with regard to citation impact and shares of highly cited papers, at least in some of the major areas of research, while most Nordic institutions do not, although the majority of them perform above the world average. “World class” research is being conducted at a few Nordic institutions, but not at most of them.

    Comparing Research at Nordic Universities using Bibliometric Indicators: Second report, covering the years 2000-20122014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present report “Comparing Research at Nordic Universities using Bibliometric Indicators, Second report, covering the years 2000–2012” is replacing the previous report from 2011 covering the years 2000-2009, basically building on the same methodology but adding more information. In this second report, publications from the social sciences and the humanities are included (not in citation analysis), and new time intervals are applied. Both reports use data from Thomson Reuters and a Nordic network for validating the data, developing the indicators and analysing the results. The discussions in the network have been paramount for the production of this second version and the presentation of data.

    Comparing Research in Social Sciences and the Humanities in the Nordic Countries: an explorative study2017Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    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.

    The purpose of this study has been to explore the possibility of comparing publishing in the Nordic countries within social sciences and the humanities using existing national data. It is our opinion that these databases do not meet the necessary requirements for unification or reliability. For a potential study in the future, we recommend that a larger project use this report as a pilot study and perform similar analysis (and many more not performed here) after a complete standardisation and verification of the five Nordic countries’ data sets. That would enable NordForsk and the Nordic community of higher education institutions to get a more accurate picture of Nordic differences in these two fields, which is not possible today due to their inadequate coverage in the Web of Science.

    The overall conclusion of this report is that there are too many data limitations to make reliable cross-country comparisons of publishing in social sciences and the humanities in the Nordic countries. The results presented in this report should therefore not be cited as official documentation of Nordic publishing in these fields, but rather as a pilot study using an inadequate data set.

    Education for Tomorrow report: Policy implications from phase 12018Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Education for Tomorrow programme was launched by NordForsk in 2013. The aim is to generate new knowledge about the Nordic educational systems that will better equip the Nordic countries to meet the needs of society – today and in the future.

    The research projects in the first phase of the programme have now been completed, and has generated new knowledge on a broad range of themes: The Nordic Centre of Excellence, JustEd, have done research on how systems, cultures and actors in education facilitate and constrain justice in the context of globalising Nordic welfare states. Furthermore, other research projects have investigated values education in Nordic preschools, education for immigrant students, skills acquisition at different ages, vocational education and training, and transformation of the higher education systems in the Nordic countries.

    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.

    Enhancing Nordic Research Infrastructure Cooperation2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Excellent research infrastructures are a prerequisite for conducting competitive research of high international quality in dynamic environments. Thus, research infrastructures are topics of common interest for the Nordic countries where Nordic cooperation can make an international contribution.

    The NORIA-net "Nordic Research Infrastructure Network" (NRIN) was initiated as a preparatory action in order to strengthen Nordic cooperation on research infrastructure policies, strategies and funding. NRIN has focused on describing similarities and differences between the Nordic countries on research infrastructure policies and aimed to identify actions suitable for cooperation. Although existing national research infrastructure roadmaps are not directly comparable, research infrastructures prioritised in all or most of the Nordic countries, will serve as a platform for increasing Nordic cooperation.

    NRIN recommends that efforts are put into current initiatives which have a direct impact on Nordic research infrastructure cooperation. This report contains recommendations on how to expand and add value to Nordic research infrastructure cooperation. The major national research funding agencies in the Nordic countries have been members of NRIN.

    Evaluation of NORDSYNC and Nordic membership of the ESRF2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    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 main findings are that ESRF has been very rele­vant to highly competitive research communities and that the NORDSYNC membership has succeeded in a strong involvement by leading research groups in the Nordic countries. The report presents lessons learnt from NORDSYNC, but also recommendations on how to strengthen Nordic use of research infrastructures. 

    NRIN recommends that efforts are put into actual initiatives which have a direct impact on Nordic research infrastructure cooperation. Based on this pilot evaluation, NRIN recommends that the Nordic countries’ international memberships in research infrastructure organisations should be evaluated on a Nordic level.

    Joint Nordic Registers and Biobanks: A goldmine for health and welfare research2014Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    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. This NORIA-net has focused its activities on how to overcome existing obstacles that impede Nordic data sharing and has proposed ways of enhancing coordination to strengthen Nordic register-based research.

    Register-based research within the field of health and wellbeing has great potential for producing knowledge that can be used to improve the capacity of the Nordic welfare states.

    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.
