Day of Higher Education
"Circumpolar cooperation in the area of Higher Education has played a leading role in demonstrating that the future sustainability of the Arctic region lies in developing our human capacity. On April 8, the Day of Higher Education hosted by the Minister of Higher Education and Science of Iceland in Akureyri, Iceland, began a new level of dialogue among authorities responsible for higher education in the circumpolar countries, and with other representatives of higher education in the region. This event marks the emergence of a new network between the ministries of Education and Science that supports and strengthens the cooperation that exists in the Arctic Council. This new engagement opens for a new area of cooperation between the ministries of Higher Education and counterparts in environment and foreign affairs in the Arctic states." /.../
