This is the final seminar of the project “Strategic Environmental Impact Assessment of development of the Arctic”, financed by and in partnership with the European Commission Directorate-General for the Environment.
The project is implemented by the European Union Arctic Information Centre (EUAIC) initiative – the international network of 19 leading Arctic research and outreach institutions from the various European Union Members States, and the EEA countries.
Currently the network includes members from Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Sweden, the United Kingdom as well as Sámi. Additionally, three international Arctic organizations based in Europe (European Polar Board of European Science Foundation, GRID-Arendal and the University of the Arctic Thematic Networks) constitute important members of the partnership.
During the morning policy session, high-level keynote speakers will present their perspectives of the Arctic in global, Northern, EU and regional perspectives. A panel of Members of the European Parliament will also reflect on the role of EU in the Arctic.
In the afternoon session, members from the EU Arctic Information Centre network will present the results of its “Strategic Environmental Impact Assessment of development of the Arctic”, financed by and in partnership with the European Commission Directorate-General for the Environment.
A draft copy of the seminar program is available here.
A finalised version of the agenda will be posted on the project website www.arcticinfo.eu right before the seminar.
