Arctic Frontiers 2019 - Smart Arctic
Arctic Frontiers // Tromsø
Arctic Frontiers started out in 2006 assembling the first global scientific conference on economic, societal and environmental sustainable growth in the north. In January 2019, we will arrange the 13th conference with the theme “Smart Arctic”. The conference has a pan arctic perspective and builds new partnerships across nations, generations and ethnic groups. Arctic Frontiers provides a forum for dialogue and communication between science, government and industry in the Arctic.
In 2019, the Arctic Frontiers plenary program will have five main sessions with the following tentative working titles: State of the Arctic, Blue Growth, Smart Solutions, Bridging the gap and Arctic business prospects. Following the plenary, we will organise an abstract driven science program addressing Plastics in the Ocean, the Future of Governance and Handling Vulnerability in Arctic Ecosystems, State of the Arctic and Smart Arctic (tentative title).
In between the annual conferences, the Arctic Frontiers secretariat works together with the partners with all the five pillars that Arctic Frontiers is founded upon; Policy, Science, Business, Young and Arena. Through seminars, open debates, workshops, projects and network meetings both in Norway and abroad, Arctic Frontiers sets the agenda and advocates a responsible knowledge-based growth and development in the Arctic.
