The development in the Arctic creates new challenges in relation to waste and wastewater handling, pollution control, human health, management of contaminated land and protection of the water supply. There is a need for research and development of affordable, robust and sustainable engineering solutions that fulfill supply and environmental demands within the constraints of the Arctic climatic and infrastructural conditions. 

The Artek Event 2016 offers the opportunity for participants from the industry, the public sector, the science community and other stakeholders to present, discuss and exchange ideas and experience on the management of municipal and industrial waste and protection of water resources in the Arctic.

Topics include, but are not restricted to:

  • Arctic context 
  • Municipal wastewater
  • Drinking water
  • Extractive industries
  • Municipal solid waste and waste from food, fish and other industries

It is possible to apply for funding for participation in the conference through north2north if one is a student or employed at an institution that is a member of UArctic.
