NIKK stands for Nordic Information on Gender. NIKK is a Nordic cooperation body under the Nordic Council of Ministers. We collect and disseminate knowledge about politics and practice, facts and research in the area of gender equality in a Nordic perspective.
Nordic research overview provides perspectives on regional policy
The population structure in the Nordic region is changing. An ageing population, migration and urbanisation are leading to challenges for both the labour market and the welfare state in general.
Many of the problems and solutions highlighted in this area can impact negatively on regional development as well as gender equality if they are implemented without having been analysed from a gender perspective. This has been shown in a new Nordic research overview.

Sustainability and gender equality in the high-tech working life of the future
The Nordic Council of Ministers and the Nordic cooperation program Generation 2030 have commissioned NIKK to develop a knowledge base. The documentation will examine how the Nordic countries work to achieve a better gender balance in education and occupations that are in demand in the scientific and technical fields and how this is expected to contribute to sustainability and equality in future labour markets.
