The objective is to turn our attention towards territorial challenges; on existing evidence and the need for future research in the northernmost regions of Europe and the Arctic; and the challenge of translating scientific knowledge into action.

The idea is that this conference will bring together researchers which have similar background but have been focusing on different problems and situations and applied different methodological approaches. Regional and local stakeholders as well as state politicians and policymakers are also target groups for the conference.
