EXPLORING THE NORTHERN DIMENSION VIDEO
 
Northern Dimension Institute has launched a video explaining the cooperation framework in the Northern Dimension (ND) area. The ND is a joint policy of four equal partners: the European Union, Russian Federation, Norway and Iceland. It was initiated in 1999 and renewed in 2006. The EU member states also take part in the cooperation in their national capacities. The ND policy aims at supporting stability, well-being and sustainable development in the region by means of practical cooperation. The Northern Dimension covers a wide range of sectors, such as the environment, nuclear safety, health, energy, transport, logistics, promotion of trade and investment, research, education and culture, to name a few.
