NMR announces funding for research on Corona measures

| Text: Björn Lindahl

The Nordic Council of Ministers has set aside DKK 1 million for a research project to look at the effects of the measures in connection with the covid-19 pandemic.

The pandemic led to infection control measures throughout the Nordic region. The measures have varied somewhat from country to country. Several countries used measures to restrict or limit social functions, workplaces, industries, schools, national borders and geographical areas.

The project will benefit the Nordic countries through analysis and mapping of how the countries' measures have worked to limit unemployment, redundancies, and worked to contribute to a return to a labour market as it was before the pandemic.

The deadline to apply for funds expires July 7.

The survey should result in a final report, which describes the extent the challenges, and which gives the Nordic Council of Ministers for Labour (MR-A) recommendations for measures and procedures. The final report must be submitted to the Nordic Council of Ministers by December 15, 2020

At the same time, NMR is also announcing funds to carry out an analysis of industry-regulated barriers to mobility in the Nordic region. The amount is DKK 400,000 and the deadlines are the same.
