The International dimension of Arctic research

The governments of the Arctic countries draw attention and resources to the High North. This is done both through investments and initiating platforms for cooperation in the northern regions. International and interdisciplinary interactions are important to meet the geo-political, environmental and social-economic challenges and opportunities, which face the Arctic and its population.

The Young Scientist Forum (YSF) is an inter-disciplinary, international arena for early career researchers working on issues related to the Arctic. It was initiated in 2007 by the ARCTOS Research Network ( as an annual event connected to the Arctic Frontiers Conference.


Young researchers as drivers for sustainable development of the Arctic

The YSF is an important investment in collaboration and understanding in the region. Networking, cultural exchange and future scientific collaborations are given optimal conditions to develop and grow. Exchange of knowledge and perspectives create synergetic effects throughout the area and prepare the ground for cooperation in the years to come. YSF aims to

  1. Create a meeting place for young professionals interested in Arctic issues
  2. Facilitate networking between junior and senior colleagues
  3. Provide tools and training to enhance communication skills and career development
  4. Help to develop and fund ideas for research projects
  5. Enhance cultural exchange between countries and disciplines.


Career Development – Networking - Training

Young Scientist Forum offers several opportunities for training and events to enhance the career development of young professionals with interest in Arctic issues. Training focuses on communication and outreach, project management and intercultural exchange in relation to Arctic research.

YSF activities run from Thursday 20 January - Wednesday 2 February 2011 and are connected to the Arctic Frontiers Conference.


Innovation through partnership and cooperation

Young Scientist Forum 2011 is based on a strong inter-disciplinary concept and a partnership between several international research and education networks:
