Information and network
The program is planning to develop a variety of online tools to help consumers and game producers, educators and researchers in the region. In addition, the program will work to encourage cooperation between commercial, educational, research and governmental organisations in the region. This includes:
NordicGame.net online games directory provides information about game companies and organisations in the Nordic region. As a resource for the entire industry and related interests, the NordicGame.net is also to include employment and internship information, a marketplace as well as event calendar.
The help of an external expert may be crucial when completing a game project. Nordic Game Program works on gathering a pool of companies and people who can serve as much needed assistance to game developers. If you or your company is in the field of e.g. game development, law, business or technology, and feel that you have the knowledge and insights that may be of use to Nordic game developers, contact us for more details.

The Nordic cooperation
Nordic cooperation is one of the world’s most extensive forms of regional collaboration, involving Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and three autonomous areas: the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Åland.
Nordic cooperation has firm traditions in politics, the economy, and culture. It plays an important role in European and international collaboration, and aims at creating a strong Nordic community in a strong Europe.
Nordic cooperation seeks to safeguard Nordic and regional interests and principles in the global community. Common Nordic values help the region solidify its position as one of the world’s most innovative and competitive.
