A Nordic University Hub is a long-term partnership between Nordic universities, universities of applied sciences and university colleges that forms a consortium which will provide a framework for expanding cooperation in the Nordic region. The overall objective of the new funding instrument is to strengthen international competitiveness and facilitate the development of world-leading Nordic research environments. The new instrument will provide funding for high-quality activities that facilitate cooperation within selected areas, promote excellence and create Nordic added value. The new instrument will allow Nordic universities, university colleges and universities of applied sciences to use Nordic cross-border cooperation as a tool for achieving their own strategic objectives, thereby building long-term institutional capacity. This will be done by making top funding available to Nordic university consortia as an incentive to promote Nordic university cooperation and capacity building.
Nordic universities, universities of applied sciences and university colleges that perform research are eligible to apply for funding.
