Due to the still ongoing pandemic, we regretfully have to cancelled the live meeting in Kilpisjärvi that we were hoping to arrange this year. The third annual Arctic Avenue meeting will be given as an online Zoom meeting instead.

Arctic Avenue funded projects are invited to present their progress. Please choose between a 10- or 15-min slot and send us the title of your presentation to kaarina.weckstrom@helsinki.fi, so we can set the final the schedule.
