Nordic added value is at the very core of all Nordic cooperation facilitated and funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers. In Nordic research cooperation facilitated by NordForsk, Nordic added value is a key concept and an assessment criterion. A new research project funded by NordForsk looks more closely at how the concept of Nordic added value is used in Nordic research. The aim of this project is to provide a comprehensive examination on the idea of Nordic added value in both concept and practice. The focus will be on new empirical research that aims to bring together the perspectives of different stakeholders from project participants to national funding institutions. Tuire Liimatainen, a post-doctoral researcher at the Centre for Nordic Studies CENS (University of Helsinki) and a team member at the Nordic research centre ReNEW (Reimagining Norden in an Evolving World) conducts the project.
