Practical cooperation takes place within the Northern Dimension Partnerships
To facilitate ND sectorial cooperation and project implementation, four sectorial Partnerships have been established to deal with the following thematic issues:
public health and social well-being (NDPHS);
transport and logistics (NDPTL);
An ND Institute (NDI) and ND Business Council (NDBC) have been established to involve academia and business community into ND cooperation.
The ND Institute maintains the website and provides updated information about ND on Twitter (@ND_Institute).
