CEMAT organized as the Northern Dimension Institute (NDI) lead coordinator four Northern Dimension Future Forums in November 2018.

The NDI has been active in raising the visibility and awareness of the Northern Dimension among various audiences and the Northern Dimension Future Forums were part of this. The Future Forums focused on issues, trends and challenges that will shape the future developments in the Northern Dimension (ND) priority themes, environment, transport & logistics, culture, and health & social wellbeing, throughout the ND area and need to be somehow addressed in all the ND countries and beyond.

CEMAT has coordinated the NDI since 2013. The NDI is an academic partner in the Northern Dimension (ND) structures. The NDI prepares Northern Dimension-related studies and reports and coordinates the collection of funding for research projects.

CEMAT is the lead coordinator, supported by two Russian co-coordinators, the Northern arctic federal university NARFU and the St Petersburg state university of economics UNECON. The NDI is established in 2009. The NDI has gained an acknowledged role as a knowledge providing and awareness-raising partner for the four ND partnerships on the environment, culture, public health and social wellbeing, as well as on transport and logistics.

The events were organized together with the Northern Dimension Partnerships and financed by the European Commission/DG NEAR and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland.
