The military sector in Ukraine has grown in recent years. Hence, the number of retired military officers and veterans who need professional retraining, as well as psychological and social adaptation, has also grown significantly.

The High North Center at Nord University Business School is a part of the NUPASS project​. This project integrates the professional and social adaptation model, developed by the “Ukraine-Norway” project during 2003-2019 into the state system of Ukraine for efficient professional adaptation and social adaptation of veterans and their family members into the civil society.
