Den nordliga dimensionens institut NDI

Den nordliga dimensionens institut (Northern Dimension Institute, NDI) är ett öppet universitetsnätverk, som svarar på informationsbehovet för policyn för den nordliga dimensionen. Den nordliga dimensionen är ett samarbete mellan fyra likvärdiga partner: Europeiska unionen, Ryssland, Norge och Island.

CEMAT är ledande koordinator för Den nordliga dimensionens institut tillsammans med Northern (Arctic) Federal University (NArFu) och Saint Petersburg State University of Economics (UNECON). Institutet finansieras av Europeiska kommissionen och utrikesministeriet i Finland. I nuläget leder institutet två projekt: NDI Think Tank och Support to the NDI.

Den nordliga dimensionens institut producerar och sprider forskningsbaserad information som berör temana för den nordliga dimensionens partnerskap (miljö, transport och logistik, kultur samt hälsa och socialt välbefinnande). Institutet publicerar också policy briefs och erbjuder utbildning i hur man skriver policy briefs, vilket främjar forskares färdigheter i vetenskaplig kommunikation.

NDI Policy Brief 19: Human biomonitoring is needed to improve well-being and mental health of Arctic people

This policy brief focuses on the importance and necessity of human biomonitoring in the Arctic. An individualized monitoring system is needed to assess the risks of public health disorders (including mental health) which result from the deficiencies of essential trace elements and vitamin D. These deficiencies are caused mainly by the unbalanced local diets combined with the lack of sunlight in the North, and they affect not only a person’s physiological health but also his or her mental state and social well-being.

Mångvetenskaplig arbetsgrupp för finsk-rysk forskning

CEMAT stöder utvecklingen av ett mångvetenskapligt Rysslandskunnande i Finland genom att leda en samhällsvetenskaplig arbetsgrupp inom ramen för den finsk-ryska kommissionen för vetenskapligt och teknologiskt samarbete. Arbetsgruppen finansieras av Finlands Akademi och består av representanter från universitet, forskningsinstitut, näringslivsföreningar och ministerier. Arbetsgruppen har som uppgift att skapa kontakter mellan finländska och ryska forskare och sprida information om den ryska ekonomin och det ryska samhället i Finland. Arbetsgruppen ordnar årliga seminarier och andra öppna tillställningar samt driver webbplatsen för Finrusresearch.
