Arctic family and friends will meet from February 1-4 2021, for the 15th edition of our annual Arctic Frontiers conference. This year under the banner of Building Bridges, we have created four thematic days that bridge both plenary and science topics

  • Monday 1 Feb: Wellbeing and Societal Health
  • Tuesday 2 Feb: Building the Future
  • Wednesday 3 Feb: Ocean meets Coast
  • Thursday 4 Feb: Business Solutions

Many of you are likely interested in the science part of the conference that is traditionally international and multidisciplinary, bringing together social sciences, humanities, physical and life sciences. Arctic Frontiers Science focuses on both fundamental and solution-oriented research with a strong impact, which addresses growing societal challenges and needs in the Arctic region. This year we took advantage of our digital platform and created a virtual space for networking and scientific discussions around the six science sessions:

  • Arctic health and social inequalities in health
  • Who gets to tell the Arctic stories?
  • Valuing the digital ocean
  • Small and medium-sized enterprises’ (SME) strategies for social sustainability in the High-North
  • The coupled Arctic system: Improved understanding from recent international campaigns
  • Advanced prediction capabilities for the Arctic and beyond
