The aim of the co-operation is to increase and develop education and research related to the Sámi languages ​​and cultures, as well as education and research related to the Sámi welfare and health, arts, law, and social sciences. The activities are coordinated and promoted by a steering group, the “Worthy Network”, which meets regularly.
