Description

The Arctic is an area of great economic potential and we are in the middle of a green shift. Industries in the north have a potential to lead the development of innovative and sustainable solutions for a better future.
We will explore how the industries adapt to the green shift, especially in the North. We will also highlight new green solutions that have risen from the Norwegian knowledge within the blue economy and the Finnish innovations that have risen from the disruption of traditional industries.
There is a limited number of places, so be sure to register in time.
