European Week of Regions and Cities
8-11 October 2018 Brussels

Sustainable development of the Arctic region to the benefit of all of Europe

October 9, 2018 from 14:30 to 16:00

The importance of the Arctic is growing, with scattered societies on the periphery that at the same time deliver assets to all of Europe. The EU is increasingly engaged in Arctic sustainable development and strategic cooperation in the North Atlantic and Nordic regions, with research playing a vital role. The workshop aims to present relevant directions for the European Arctic and the EU's role, focusing on the smart specialisation toolbox, innovation and capacity building. Researchers, policy-makers and practitioners will provide a basis for a lively debate. The workshop will also host the award ceremony and reception for the Arctic Award 2018. Learn more
