Please note that the programme 2014-2015 has been terminated.


The Nordic Demography Programme is aiming at Nordic local communities and regions outside the metropolitan areas. Municipalities and regions that are highly exposed to demographic challenges will be prioritized. These challenges can have the character of one or more of the following development tendencies:

  • Negative population growth, due to low birth rates and/or negative net migration
  • Stagnating or reduced work force
  • Significant growth in the number of people over 65
  • Significant imbalance in the number of men and women

Read more about the projects that have received funding for 2014-2015. The finalized projects have been brought together in a publication that was published in June 2015. The publication has been printed in Swedish and English and can be ordered from Nordregio or downloaded as a pdf through the links above.

The final seminar of the Demography Programme 2014-2015 was held at Nordregio on April 23, 2015. Read the report from the seminar and download presentations via link to the right.
