Arctic Frontiers side events

Side events

Each year Arctic Frontiers gathers more than 3500 delegates from 35 countries. During the conference week a number of side events are arranged alongside the main Arctic Frontiers conference program. Our side events and breakout sessions offer a closer look into the topics covered at the main program. This provides a benefit to our partners, delegates and external organisers of side events.

Arctic Frontiers is primarily working along four thematic lines, and the side events, which are arranged during the conference week will be connected to these lines:

1. Smart Arctic

Sub topicsResilient societies, innovation, technology transfer, smart infrastructure, connectivity.

2. Blue Future

Sub topicsHealthy and productive oceans, sustainable ocean economy, balanced approach to use and protection of marine resource.

3. Sustainable Business Development

Sub topicsResources, competence, technology, green competitiveness, energy, transportation, resources, business trends and knowledge based growth in the Arctic.

4. Science to Policy

Sub topicsKnowledge based policy development, the role of science in the development of the Arctic region, balanced growth discourse, science diplomacy, global trends on science-policy interaction


All participants and organisers of side events at the main venue, Clarion Hotel the Edge, must be registered in our conference registration system.

Conference delegates get free access to the all side events taking place on the same day as they attend the main conference program. There is a fee of 750 NOK per day if you only wish to attend side events.
