Integrity policy

No data that can identify individuals are collected. As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others.

These cookies are set when a page is loaded, on all pages of the web site:

nmstat (1000 days): collects statistics about our visitors’ usage of the web site, for example, when a visitor last visited the web site.

This information is then used to improve on the visitors’ usefulness and experience of the web site. This cookie contains a randomly generated ID which is used to identify the web browser, when a visitor reads a page. The cookie contains no personal information and is only used for web analysis. 

It is also used to track the sequence of pages a visitor browses during a visit. This information can then be used to simplify our visitors’ navigation and to improve the possibilities to more quickly and easily find information.

AWSELBCORS (is stored temporarily during the visit, for as long as the web browser is kept open): secures that all page views for the same visit are sent to the same end point. This makes it possible to discern in what order a visitor browses the pages of the web site, which is necessary, to be able to trace behaviours and navigation paths which our visitors frequently use.

Processing personal data

How we handle applications for funding

NIKK stores applications in a separate database and on our private server, to assess and administer applications and to be able to keep in contact with the participating organisations – and for follow up and evaluation. We also share information with the Nordic Council of MInisters’ representatives for the same reasons.


Accessibility on the Web is responsive and should work in all types of devices. The site works with screen readers, contains easy-to-read material and uses direct language. The site is optimized for tab navigation. We work continually to adhere in full to WCAG 2.2 level A.
