Arctic Researchers' Network

The warming of the Arctic threatens the populations and environments in the circumpolar regions, and provision of key ecosystem services that rely on fundamental water, carbon and nutrient processes. This jeopardizes traditional cultures, livelihoods, and tourism. Understanding the global changes in the North and dealing with it in sustainable ways is important globally and crucial for Finland.

The research done at the University of Oulu benefits people living at all latitudes. Our heritage as one of the northernmost multidisciplinary universities in the world is invaluable now, when mankind’s new growth frontier is to the North. The demanding conditions of the far north have always forced people to be innovative and resourceful. We call this Science with Arctic attitude.

Activities in Arctic science at UOulu relate to all strategic focus areas. To highlight the importance of multidisciplinary topics among Arctic research UOulu has established a network of the researchers to support these actions.

The network is coordinated by the Thule Institute, together with the UOulu’s Arctic Interactions profile action (ArcI), the Kvantum Institute as well as with other focus institutes. The network also promotes the actions of the Arctic Five (A5) cooperation. UOulu´s researchers working on Arctic topics as well as the researchers of the Research Institutes situated in UOulu´s different campuses areas are invited to participate in the activities of the network.
