NIKK has been comissioned to collect knowledge about how older LGBTI-persons are met by the public health and care services in the Nordic countries.

In order to help break down the gender segregation in vocational education programmes in the Nordic countries, NIKK is going gather knowledge about the problem in a study of the Nordic countries.
NIKK has been commissioned to produce a Nordic research overview, that documents and analyses the existing knowledge about young men’s mental ill-health and look more closely at what causes the problems and what consequences they have in a life long perspective.
The Nordic Council of Ministers has decided on a cross-sectoral research initiative on sexual harassment in the workplace, which NIKK is managing. The initiative has a particular focus on prevention and intervention methods based on industry studies and comparative studies of different industries.
NIKK will produce a Nordic anthology during the year with the aim of broadening knowledge about sexual harassment and positioning this issue in a broader context.
NIKK continues to raise issues related to a sustainable working life in the Nordic countries. This project will result in a knowledge base to be published in autumn 2021.
