Friends of the Arctic – it's time to meet!
Arctic Frontiers 2022 Pathways will reflect on the choices the Arctic is facing in addressing pressing global challenges. The urgency for action will be discussed as the region, alongside with the rest of the globe, maneuvers from one global crisis to another and as the ramifications of the current crisis are still partially to be unveiled. The 2022 conference will discuss the purpose of and pathways forward for Arctic collaboration.

We turn science into knowledge
The development of the future Arctic should be knowledge-based, and Arctic Frontiers is founded on the idea of bringing science closer to policy making.
Arctic Frontiers Science conference is traditionally international and multidisciplinary, bringing together social sciences, humanities, physical and life sciences. We are focusing on both fundamental and solution-oriented research with strong impact, which addresses growing societal challenges and needs in the Arctic region.
In 2022, Arctic Frontiers will host five science sessions.
