The Nordic-Russian Co-operation Programme in Higher Education and Research is intended to promote multifaceted contacts in the fields of education and research, in the interests of sustainable social and economic development in Russia and the Nordic countries.
By funding Nordic-Russian co-operation projects in higher education and research between educational institutions and research organizations, the programme aims to initiate long-term partnerships that will improve the direct links between the involved institutions and organizations.
Targeting the above goals, the co-operation efforts in higher education and research are directed towards multilateral co-operation in the training of highly qualified experts, exchange of undergraduate and postgraduate students and university faculty, as well as joint research projects and promotion of innovation.
