A project jointly conducted by the Nordic national statistical institutes and funded by NordForsk was initiated in 2015. The project, Nordic Microdata Access Network (NordMAN), seeks to establish a single pan-Nordic solution to facilitate researchers' access to the Nordic metadata compiled for statistical purposes, and to provide an overview of the existing Nordic registers. The project’s common Nordic metadata model has already been tested in conjunction with a number of projects and the aim is to begin using a software application enabling researchers to find what data are available in the Nordic region. The project has also built “The Nordic model”, with a common application for research projects using Nordic data.
