Abstract

This study, commissioned by the Nordic Council of Ministers, maps current and planned cooperation in education and research that the Nordic Countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) have with Russia. The study includes bilateral, Nordic, regional, intergovernmental (Nordic Council of Ministers, the Council of the Baltic Sea States, the Barents Euro-Arctic Council and the Arctic Council) and EU levels. The focus is on the bilateral, national level. The study covers all fields of research and all educational levels: primary and upper-secondary schools, as well as vocational, higher and adult education. This study falls into at least two frameworks: the internationalisation of research and education, which is a global process, and the framework of the post-Soviet space; after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia began expressing an interest in international cooperation in the fields of research and education, while the Nordic countries began deepening their cooperation with Russia in many fields, including education and research.
