Academic (un)employment and mobility in the Arctic

The Arctic North is a land of unknown opportunities for many academically educated. The Arctic Five – the five northern universities in Nordic countries are profiling themselves as locus for innovations “Great ideas grow better below zero” and determination “Science with Arctic Attitude”,  to mention few of their recently launched slogans. Research and innovation and the related expertise are key elements to develop start-up companies in Arctic areas. The aim of the project is to further the placement of university graduates for the joint Arctic North labor market and to support the remigration of academically educated people to the region. A joint Arctic North labor market crosses borders and synergisizes recruiting practices and strategies in the area, but also repurposes digital recruiting services to better respond to current needs. How may technology and connectivity enhance academic employment and cross border mobility in a joint Arctic North labor market? How do we utilize brain circulation in the Arctic North?

Organised by the University of Tromsø - the Arctic University of Norway, LTU – Luleå Technical University and UOulu – University of Oulu
