The event will be co-organized by the Italian Embassy in Oslo and the University of Tromsø with the participation of representatives from the scientific (in a broad sense), business, diplomatic and political community as well as from media interested in the bilateral relations between Italy and Norway and in particular in the Arctic region.
The seminar to be held at the premises of the University and is intended as an opportunity for interested Italian and Norwegian players to be better acquainted and to exchange views and experiences also in view of trying to achieve new synergies.
