to the 9th Circumpolar Cooperation Conference of the Circumpolar Universities Association.

In the dynamically changing world, the issues of globalization influence on sustainable regional development present a significant challenge for scientists covering a wide range of cultural, educational, environmental, economic, international and soft security issues. Our theme, Globalization and Sustainable Development of the Circumpolar North, challenges us to think about the role of our institutions in solving these problems.

Co-operation among circumpolar universities and with other universities of the world contributes to sustainable development of northern territories in terms of globalization with necessary human resources and essential scientific backup.

We hope you will enjoy the conference.
