NordForsk is an organisation under the Nordic Council of Ministers that provides funding for and facilitates Nordic cooperation on research and research infrastructure. Since 2005 the Faroe Islands had Observer Status in the NordForsk Board, but it was a long-standing political wish in the Faroe Islands to obtain full membership in the Board. In January 2023 the Faroe Islands got full membership in the Nordforsk Board.
