www.nordunet2.org Nordunet2 projects should Demonstrate a Nordic dimension. The project results should be generally applicable in all Nordic countries Be connected to publicly supported research activities. At least one partner must represent a university or other public institution of higher learning Have network relevance –advanced application using network in advanced manner –application using network in advanced manner –advanced application using network
