Support for Nordic knowledge

For several years now, we have administered funding for Nordic projects, networks and other efforts in the field of equality, gender and LGBTI. The work is mainly carried out through NIKK, Nordic information on gender, a cooperation body under the Nordic Council of Ministers, located at the Swedish Secretariat for Gender Research.

Today we administer two funds, on behalf of the Nordic Council of Ministers. The purpose of them is to stimulate Nordic cooperation in the field of gender equality and LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex). During the period 2020-2023, we also manage the Nordic Council of Ministers' research initiative on sexual harassment in working life.

We cooperate with, amongst others
Actors in funded projects and networks, Nordic Council of ministers, Nordiska ministerrådet, different depending on the outcome of funded research and other projects.
