Arctic Frontiers Young


We have five different events under our Arctic Frontiers Young program, inviting young actors to the Arctic scene. The following Young program events will be present during Arctic Frontiers 2022:


  • Science for Schools is arranged in collaboration with the Science Centre of Northern Norway and the APECS. We invite 10th grade students in Tromsø to participate in a science project. Following lectures by scientists the students work on a chosen project that is presented in a poster session during the Science for Schools conference. The winners of the best posters of Science for Schools will present their posters during the Science Poster Session in Arctic Frontiers 2022. 


  • Science for Kids is arranged in collaboration with the Science Centre of Northern-Norway, the Fram Centre and Akvaplan-niva A/S. We invite kindergartens in Tromsø to create their own science project, learning how to work as a researcher in the Arctic. 


  • Emerging Leaders facilitates meetings between young professionals and PhD students/post docs and senior representatives from academia, business and the public sector. The one-week program is a blend of technical, social and cultural events.
