UArctic Rectors meeting in Monaco

UArctic Rectors' Meeting took place in Monaco on 12-13 January 2023.

The meeting was organised by the Oceanographic Institute - Prince Albert I of Monaco Foundation and the University of Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, in collaboration with Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.

It focused on "Academic cooperation as a solution for achieving sustainable goals in a rapidly changing Arctic world" in order to have Arctic institutions and members of UArctic work more closely to address new challenges, notably :

  • The role of the Arctic and northern oceans in what is called the “Green Shift”
  • The impact of climate change and the new geopolitical context on Arctic societies and communities: opportunities and challenges from renewed external interest for the Arctic
  • The central Arctic as an ocean not only losing its ice cover, but seen also as a resource
  • How to develop and intensify cooperation both within academia and from an intersectoral point of view in such times of drastic, accelerating change
