My work is versatile: communications planning, implementing and follow up. Content providing for different channels: web, print and press releases. Media contacts, public relations and managing online communities around Arctic Centre. Consulting and sharing communicational expertise in the Arctic Centre and in our national and international Arctic & Barents projects.
