Our second UArctic Congress is hosted by the universities of Oulu and Helsinki.
The centrepiece of the Congress is the Science section, highlighting the best that northern science has to offer from across the circumpolar world and beyond. Together with partners, policy makers, UArctic member representatives and other actors, the Congress strives to take the Arctic agenda forward by creating and straightening collaborations that will produce new findings and solutions for the future of the Arctic region.
I am certain we will enjoy the famous Finnish hospitality from our hosts, and I look forward to seeing you all in Oulu and Helsinki.
Lars Kullerud, UArctic President
