The workshop will focus on how the Nordic Council of Ministers can optimise co-operation between the secretariat, the institutions and the co-operative bodies, when communicating the results from initiatives and projects in the areas of knowledge, and health and welfare. The final result will be a concrete work plan that will set guidelines for a better and more effective co-ordination between the involved bodies.
Place: Nordic Council of Ministers, Ved Stranden 18, Copenhagen.
Participants: EK-S and EK-U representatives, communication and information staff from relevant ministries and institutions.

We are pleased to invite you to a workshop on 8 April 2011 in Copenhagen to identify the need for information and communication about Nordic co-operation in the research and education, and the social and health care sectors. The basis for this is that a great deal of good and relevant work is being done within Nordic co-operation but that this is altogether too little known within the Nordic Region. This fact is unsatisfactory and needs to be addressed.
