NIOM exercises high Nordic value, the Committee explained, by demonstrating and developing Nordic cooperation in the field of dental materials. In addition, the cost-effectiveness of the work done at NIOM was superior to similar activities if done at national level. NIOM also strengthens the Nordic impact in international fora, the Committee concluded in its report to the Nordic Council. The Nordic Council is the official inter-parliamentary body in the Nordic Region and has 87 elected members from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden as well as from the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland.
