Please remember when planning a new Thematic Network:

  • The leader (=the host) of the Network has to come from UArctic member institution.
  • Thematic Networks consist of individual experts from at least three UArctic member institutions.
  • A Thematic Network should have members from all three major northern regions (North America, northern Europe, and Russia).
  • A Thematic Network can also have members from non-UArctic member institutions.

When a new idea for a Thematic Network is born, remember also to contact Thematic Networks Director Kirsi Latola (kirsi.latola(at)

See the Guidelines for establishing a new Thematic Network.
