High North Dialogue 2017, April 5 – 6: Innovations in the Arctic

HND17

Worldwide interest in the Arctic is increasing. Changing ice-conditions, regional growth and international geopolitics have placed the High North at the center of attention.

Preliminary program here.

Information on registration here.

On April 5-6, the High North Center for Business and Governance at the Nord University Business School invites you to participate in the High North Dialogue 2017. The theme of this year’s conference is Innovations in the Arctic.

For thousands of years, humans have braved the harsh conditions of the Arctic and found their home and means of subsistence in the circumpolar north. The Arctic region with its rich resources has long been a source of industry, trade and value creation, ranging from centuries of whaling to modern-day high tech data centers. The Arctic has seen industries rise and fall, and the people living in the region have adapted accordingly. Today, almost four million people live above the Arctic Circle. It’s a region of great diversity, faced with great changes. New ideas, innovation and entrepreneurship is key to assuring thriving communities and value creation in the North.

On April 5 – 6, 2017, we invite you to join us for two days dedicated to innovations in the Arctic: The High North Dialogue Conference 2017.

Since 2007, the High North Dialogue conference series have brought together Arctic leaders – present and future – to discuss the dimensions of the changes taking place in the Arctic. Set in Bodø – the second largest community in North Norway and gateway to Lofoten – the High North Dialogue 2017 will provide you with a different perspective on the future of the Arctic.
