The Arctic Institute (TAI) has signed a one-year partnership agreement with the High North Center in Bodø, North Norway, with the ambition of extending it further. TAI will help the Center to develop their High North Dialogue, to be held in Bodø on March 17-19, 2015.
The High North Dialogue 2015 conference is a continuation of the previously named “Arctic Dialogue” conferences, held from 2011-2014. In contrast to many Arctic-themed conferences it aims to attract students interested in Arctic/High North issues.
Having previously collaborated with the High North Centre on Arctic Dialogue 2014, The Arctic Institute (TAI) has now taken collaboration one step further and signed a partnership agreement for 2014/2015. As the High North Dialogue conference expands in size and participants, TAI will assist in putting together the program, spreading conference material and providing background information and analysis. Additionally, TAI will use its extended network and media expertise to help reach experts and students interested in current Arctic affairs.
Located 1.5 hours by flight from Oslo, Bodø is the second largest city in North Norway, with a growing business community, acknowledged research institutions, and strong links to national security actors. The North Norwegian Joint Rescue Coordination Centre, the Norwegian Armed Forces Joint Headquarters, and the University of Nordland with its High North Bodø Graduate School of Business, are all located in the city.
