Series of seminars for researchers – collaboration and networking across organisational boundaries


The Arctic Smartness RDI-Excellence project welcomes all researchers in Lapland to a series of seminars in the fall of 2019. The aim of the seminars is to advance collaboration across disciplines and organisations and present ways for researchers to participate in projects and potentially cooperate with companies.

At the start of each seminar, the host organisation will present their salient research themes and on-going projects. The participants will be invited to cooperate on selected themes and the host organisation may put forward concrete project initiatives for joint development. After this, a discussion workshop is held with an open call for participants to offer their expertise, ideas and solutions for the challenges faced in the projects.

The theme of the first seminar is bioeconomy, encompassing e.g. forestry, agriculture, reindeer husbandry, the natural products sector, nature tourism and conservation areas. Hosted by the Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke), this seminar will take place on 18 September, 9–12 pm, at the University of Lapland in lecture hall 10.

Registration for the first seminar: Registration closes on 13 September at 1 pm.

You’re also welcome to follow the event online via Adobe Connect without registering: Participating in the workshops is unfortunately not available online.
