The Arctic Five universities form a comprehensive research alliance that comprises thousands of researchers, many of them standing at the forefront of their respective academic fields.
Cross-institutional and cross-disciplinary research is being stimulated in different ways within the Arctic Five consortium, the most recent and extensive effort being our Chairs and Fellows initiative.
Another cornerstone of our research collaboration is the close dialogue with national and regional agencies, local authorities and indigenous communities. The Arctic Five also have an ambition to excel at outreach and to lead the way by negotiating and communicating a shared understanding of the desired future of the Arctic.
The Arctic Five Chairs will be key figures in a collective effort to address common challenges facing the Arctic region. The universities are making a strategic commitment to establish new forms of bottom-up collaboration between scholars, bridging institutional and national borders.
