What makes us different?
An Extensive Network of Experts
Drawing from its years of experience in the dual arenas of EU and Arctic politics, as well as upon its extensive network of science and experts spanning the entirety of the Arctic Circle and beyond, the stakeholders and experts engaged in our Advisory Council possess a broad background in European and Arctic politics and science. We enjoy a healthy diversity among our network, with members coming from a wide range of backgrounds and origins, both personally and professionally. Many of these members are experts or decision makers in their respective fields. The Foundation is also proud to count leaders within the Arctic indigenous community amongst our network of friends and colleagues.
