The North America Strategy for Higher Education Cooperation 2008-2011 was introduced in the fall of 2007. The aim of the Strategy is to strengthen the cooperation between higher education institutions in Norway and the U.S. and Canada.

In 2010, the Ministry of Education and Research completed a status assessment of the Strategy. The status assessment shows an upward trend in student mobility between Norway and North America, and the transatlantic partnerships established under the strategy have become models of best practice for institutional collaboration. However, the status assessment also points to the need for increased efforts in certain areas. The Ministry has therefore decided to revise the Strategy in 2011, and introduce a new Strategy for the period 2012-2015.
