Yesterday, Thule Institute opened ArcticCube at Tellus International Avenue for the duration of 2018. It aims to spread knowledge about the arctic and northern issues as well as related research and education conducted in and with the University of Oulu. In addition to that, the Cube will be promoting the UArctic Congress 2018, happening in Oulu and Helsinki in September, and recruiting the volunteers for it.
ArcticCube serves as the meeting point and information channel about the arctic and northern related issues to the University of Oulu students and staff. During the year, several events and workshops for staff and students will take place at the ArcticCube and Tellus Innovation Arena. The upcoming events can be found at www.oulu.fi/thuleinstitute/arcticcube.
In the ArcticCube, you can watch the videos about the Arctic, which are continuously running on the screen (the headphones are provided). In addition to that, the promotional materials are available at the magazine stand right next to ArcticCube.
ArcticCube is the third cube open at Tellus International Avenue along with Yokohama National University EU Branch Office (Japan) and the Shanghai University (China) cubes. Unless reserved for events, all the cubes are freely available for quiet work and meetings.
