Organize a UArctic Day

UArctic Days help you raise awareness of UArctic locally and share information about the opportunities the network has to offer.

By organizing a UArctic Day, you can introduce UArctic activities to your faculty, students and staff, and inform about possibilities for research cooperation and networking, education and student mobility – all the different ways your institution is able to participate in the network's activities. You could also organize a UArctic display and/or stand as part of an existing international event at your institution or in your region.

  • Hand out brochures and other promotional materials
  • Invite students or staff who have already participated in UArctic activities to share their experiences
  • Invite a member of UArctic leadership or UArctic staff to tell more about the network
  • Arrange a meet-up between those who are already active and those who are interested in participating more

UArctic Days have already been successfully organized at the universities of Oulu, Eastern Finland, Tampere and Helsinki.

For assistance contact, and be sure to send us photos and stories from your event!
