The Nordic Council of Ministers | Finland's Presidency Project
The project is part of Finland’s Programme for the Presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers Presidency in 2021, and also one of the measures implementing the Nordic Vision 2030. The project is carried out under the umbrella of the Cross-Border Digital Services Programme (CBDS) of MR-Digital and in cooperation with the other projects within the Programme.
The project’s starting point is the citizen’s daily life, and the project will produce a handbook and best practices for improving cross-border data exchange. The handbook will be validated through three life events:
- Studying in another Nordic-Baltic country (Work package 1)
- Using health care services in another Nordic-Baltic country (Work package 2)
- The versatile use of the Nordic-Baltic legislative data bases (Work package 3)
The project is administered by the Finnish Digital and Population Data Services Agency, and the life events are coordinated by the Finnish National Agency for Education, the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare and the Finnish Ministry of Justice, respectively. Within each life event, an inter-Nordic-Baltic working group will be formed, or existing cooperation fora will be utilised, to ensure a common Nordic-Baltic viewpoint.
The project is financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers and is nationally supervised jointly by the Finnish Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, the Ministry of Education and Culture, the Ministry of Justice, and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
