Arctic Frontiers Abroad - Scotland

The Scottish Government and Arctic Frontiers are hosting Scottish and international experts for a one-day conference dedicated to Scottish-Arctic collaboration, with a focus on energy solutions and blue economy.

The event will be held at the Aberdeen Science Centre on the 17 March 2023 and the programme will feature a mix of key note speeches and panel discussions, with time for Q&As with the audience and networking opportunities in the margins of proceedings. This event is free to attend but places are limited and registrations may close early if maximum capacity is reached.

Arctic Frontiers is a catalyst for decision-making and network building by mobilising key voices of science, policy, business, and local Arctic communities, to rapidly turn knowledge into actions. 

Through outreach activities and with competent and committed partners on arctic issues, Arctic Frontiers sets the agenda for a responsible and sustainable development of the Arctic.

Arctic Frontiers started out in 2006 assembling the first global scientific conference on economic, societal and environmental sustainable growth in the north.

At the conference, Scottish and international speakers will come together to share their expertise and identify new opportunities for collaboration, with a special focus on just energy solutions and a sustainable blue economy with sessions covering:

  • Marine planning and ports
  • Harnessing rural energy
  • Just transition in Scotland and the Arctic
