The Office of the Ombudsperson for Academic Ethics and Procedures received financial support from the Nordic-Baltic Mobility and Networking Programme for Public Administration. The grant will allow three employees to make two short-term working visits abroad. The staff of the Office will take part in interinstitutional exchanges of knowledge and experience in Finnish National Board on Research Integrity (TENK) and the Norwegian National Research Ethics Committees. The knowledge and experience gained will make it possible to improve the complaint handling procedures within the Office and to improve the consultation of the academic community.
The Nordic-Baltic Mobility and Networking Programme for Public Administration provides financial support to civil servants and other public sector employees or their groups (2-8 people) to carry out internships, trainings, short-term working visits to the Nordic and Baltic countries or networking activities within the region.
Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Norway, and Iceland participate in the Programme.
