Summary

Update:

We at UArctic, together with the local host organizations in Iceland, have made the difficult decision to postpone the UArctic Congress (originally scheduled to take place in Reykjavik Oct 6-8, 2020) until May 2021 in conjunction with the Arctic Council Ministerial.

Please follow this link for more information.


UArctic Congress 2020 will be hosted by all UArctic higher education members in Iceland. The event is part of Iceland’s chairmanship of the Arctic Council and organized in conjunction with the Arctic Circle Assembly.

The themes of the Congress follow those of the Icelandic chairmanship's priorities:

  • Arctic Marine Environment
  • Climate and Green Energy Solutions
  • People and Communities in the Arctic

The UArctic Congress 2020 brings together institutional leaders, indigenous representatives, academics, scientists and students from around the Circumpolar North and beyond. It is an excellent platform for all UArctic members to engage with each other and promote cooperation in circumpolar science and higher education. Together with partners, policy makers and other actors, the UArctic Congress strives to take the Arctic agenda forward by creating and strengthening collaborations that produce new findings and solutions for the future of the Arctic.

The deadline for session proposals is January 31, 2020.
