Programme for the symposium. Click on the photo to enlarge.

Research in and about the Arctic will be taking center stage when researchers and students from UCPH meet for an Arctic Symposium on November 24, 2016.

The Arctic as
interdisciplinary strength area

UCPH is aiming to make "the Arctic" one of our official interdisciplinary strength areas and the Symposium is a chance to feed your research into the description of this new area.

Networking and market place

Get to know the work of other Arctic researchers and students at UCPH, find new collaboration partners, learn about the University's plans for the Arctic research area and contribute to the strengthening of the Arctic-profile at the UCPH.

All ph.D students and researchers can book a booth at the market place to pitch coming projects and publications. 

Participation is free but registration - and registration for the market place - is mandatory.

Deadline for registration is November 7, 2016.
