Register-based research in the Nordic Countries – possibilities and practices

The vast registers in the Nordic countries have been called a gold mine for researchers. The way this valuable data is made available for researchers differ to some extent between the different Nordic countries. In this seminar Finnish researchers are invited to hear what has been done in the other Nordic countries to improve the possibilities for researchers to obtain register data and find out what kind of data is available to their Nordic colleagues.  The Finnish contributions will include a proposition for a system for remote access of register data and an overview of possibilities for Nordic collaboration within register research.
