Science with Arctic attitude

We are situated close to the Arctic region, humanity’s new frontier. The demanding conditions of the far north have always forced people to be inventive and resourceful, and many innovations that have changed the world have their roots here. At the University of Oulu, we call this Science with Arctic attitude.
