For years now, The Arctic Institute is supporting the High North Center for Business and Governance to organise the annual High North Dialogue Conference. The yearly High North Dialogue conference gathers experts and stakeholders from a range of sectors, and has a strong focus on business development and economic growth in the High North. One aspect that participants highlight as especially useful, is the fact that the conference provides a platform to interact with young academics and professionals with an interest in the Arctic. The conference coincides with weeklong Master and PhD courses that gather graduate students from Norway, Russia, China, and several other countries.
The theme of this year’s conference is Business in the Arctic. We will explore topics such as High North scenarios, Smart Cities, maritime waste and the regional dimension of development. Business leaders and entrepreneurs will share their thoughts and know-how on how the enormous business potential in the Arctic can be harvested.

For the third year in a row, we present the High North Hero Award to a person or an organisation that has contributed to highlighting the importance of the High North. 

For more information on the conference and registration, please refer to

High North Dialogue Research Workshop (4 April) aims at providing arena to present and discuss researchers’ work concerned with challenges and opportunities for sustainable development in the Arctic, and to connect with similar minded scholars across academic fields and professional experience. One of the workshop’s track will be devoted to the issues of Business and Governance in the Barents Region.
