The participants were Astrid Revhaug from the University of Tromso, Donna Anger, from the University of Alaska Faibanks, Riitta Kataja from the University of Oulu, Shona Perry-Maidment from Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada, and Camilla Hansen and Marianne Jorgensen from the UArctic Studies Catalog Office.
The main objective of the meeting was getting GoNorth - the UArctic joint marketing program - a step further from the project state into "the real world", the first goal being to work out a concrete marketing strategy; ie. how to communicate with the UArctic higher education institutions, how to communicate with the prospective students and how to communicate with the public/stakeholders. The GoNorth team will be working closely with the Studies Catalog team as the marketing of their goals and objectives are
interdependent. We will be updating the GoNorth and studies catalog webpages in the near future.
The next joint program meeting will take place Nov, 9-11th in Tromsø, Norway
GoNorth and the Course Catalog meet in Amherst
