The Arctic Centre improves a comprehensive understanding of the Arctic through research and science communication.
Our strength is in a unique combination of high quality multidisciplinary research and the capability to share research-based knowledge with the public and decision-makers.
Our top-level research combines approaches from the human, social, legal and natural sciences, often in multidisciplinary projects and in co-production with local, regional, national and international stakeholders.
Through the Arktikum Science Centre and science communication activities we increase knowledge and further a comprehensive understanding of the changing Arctic.
We provide solutions to environmental and societal problems in dynamic dialogue with stakeholders.
The Arctic Centre is part of the University of Lapland and Lapland University Consortium (LUC) and implements the LUC 2030 strategy.
