SUPRA and ACRSN focuses on the members of the Nordic NIAS Council (NNC) which is a Nordic initiative that supports the development of Asian studies through collaboration between universities, research institutes and various national and international networks. Students from the NNC member institutions will be given priority in ACRSN initiatives. The aims of the NNC are:
- To establish an association that will cooperate with NIAS to develop Asian studies, i.e. research and education at the highest levels, in the Nordic region.
- To promote synergy between the activities of the NNC members and NIAS.
- To support NIAS in being a window for Nordic activities on Asia within the field of Asian studies.
- To ensure that NIAS maintains a Nordic mandate based on cross-disciplinary studies with a focus on political, economic, business, cultural, and social transformations in modern Asia in their wider context and in a historical perspective.
