Arcum offers a research environment where collaboration within project management, publications, supervision, international networks, seminars and strategic planning is in the forefront.
With a substantial number of affiliated researchers at Umeå University the centre assembles a strong research environment with national proficiency in extensive research areas and has strategically developed a concept, which provides an interdisciplinary response to present, and future demands of research-based knowledge for a sustainable development in the north. Since the establishment in December 2012, nearly 240 researchers at Umeå University have joined as affiliated researchers to Arcum.
The research conducted within Arcum has high relevance to the society and meets the increased demand for research-based knowledge. Cooperation is also of great importance. The center offers excellent opportunities for subject disciplinary and interdisciplinary collaborations. Arcum has a primary strength in its access to successful researchers, while new disciplines and young researchers continuously connect to the Centre. The researchers bring new perspectives on the northern and indigenous -related issues and sharpens the human dimension through cultural studies, health, environment, climate, legal and socio - economic research.
