Closer cooperation with the Dartmouth College
The University of Lapland and the Dartmouth College (USA) have signed a memorandum of understanding with a desire to work together across a variety of programs and activities. Special focus will be in Arctic studies and joint programs on themes such as indigenous peoples, environmental studies and collaborative research.
Dartmouth College is an old
and well established university located in Hanover, New Hampshire, and
it has developed into one of the main hubs in US Arctic research. The
University of Lapland and especially the Arctic Centre have already had
for almost 30 year close cooperation in various fields. Both
universities have also been active in the University of the Arctic
consortium since the beginning.
The memorandum of understanding
enhances the joint cooperation. The first steps will include identifying
specific common projects and developing plans for activities.
the memorandum of understanding with the Darmouth College strenghtens a
lot our network of international cooperation. It gives man
possibilities for joint projects and activities, especially in the
fields of indigenous studies and international Arctic politics”, notes
