Arctic Centre at Umeå University

Image: Mattias Pettersson

The Arctic Centre at Umeå University is a connectivity hub for arctic transdisciplinary research and education, where we gather researchers with an Arctic context to their research. We make this happen through our Arctic Graduate School for Doctoral students, and by creating a network of and for associated researchers. We coordinate these researchers, organise activities and work toward a better collaboration between researchers and society.
