Research Nordic

Publiceret Juli 2003

Research Nordic is a new paper for senior researchers and policymakers in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. We cover research policy and politics across all disciplines - from stem cells to fuel cells to prison cells. Our aim is to improve understanding of the direction that policies affecting research is taking, and stimulate debate on the directions it ought to take.

We cover all the issues that affect the environment in which researchers operate. This means government policies on funding research and stimulating innovation, the economic environment and business attitudes, questions of manpower and careers, the ethical framework in which research operates ? and the nitty-gritty of policies adopted by sponsors such as the national research councils.

Thorough news is mixed with analysis, comment and opinion pieces from leading figures in the Nordic research world. For each of the countries, we cover the domestic research policy scene more thoroughly than any other publication. In addition, we look at issues of common interest and compare the different approaches the research community is taking in different countries. There is also a comprehensive listing of every funding opportunity available to researchers in the Nordic countries.

Research Nordic is edited from Sweden by Jenny Johansson, an experienced commentator on research policy in Brussels and the Nordic countries, and published in English every two weeks. It is available on paper or online and runs alongside its established sister publications, Research Europe, Research Fortnight (in the UK) and Onderzoek Nederland, in the Netherlands.

Online, additional services are available, including more frequent news updates and a searchable database of funding opportunities. Universities are invited to subscribe to a site license and we aim to have over 10,000 readers by the end of 2003 drawn from government, universities, industry and government laboratories.

Research Nordic is published by ResearchResearch, the world's leading provider of news on research policy and research funding.
