The NDI project ‘Support to the Northern Dimension Institute’ launched this autumn

The NDI is strengthening its position as a platform for regional and cross-sectoral cooperation. The new project ‘Support to the Northern Dimension Institute’, co-funded by the European Commission, DG NEAR, launched this autumn. The project helps to avoid overlapping activities and to pool resources to address common challenges.

The specific objective of the project is to exploit the existing expertise and further strengthen the capacity of the NDI to implement specified activities with expected outputs and outcomes. 

The identification of synergies between themes of ND Partnerships and other regional strategies and initiatives will improve the regional actors’ awareness of potential synergies and complementarities with research-based evidence.

The workshops, seminars and exchange of expertise will create common platforms for interaction, discussion on identified synergies and mutual planning of activities. These platforms foster cross-Partnership cooperation as well as intensify cooperation between regional actors in the North. 

The project generates and provides to the ND Partnerships’ knowledge-based recommendations for formulating their strategies and directing their research. The project will identify policy-relevant research and produce it into Policy Briefs and other intellectual contributions.

The communication and media activities of the project will increase the awareness, visibility, and outreach of the ND policy in the wider geographical context. Information on project results, policies and initiatives will be disseminated to experts, policy-makers and the public via the NDI website, the newsletter ND Newsflash, and social media channels.
