Arctic Centre improves comprehensive understanding of the Arctic through research and science communication.
Our strength is in a unique combination of high quality research and capability to share knowledge with the public and decision-makers.
Our locally, regionally and globally relevant research is a combination of human, social, legal and natural sciences.
Through Arktikum Science Centre and science communication activities we can increase knowledge and understanding of the Arctic.
