UK-Iceland Event on Arctic Marine Research and Innovation: Opportunities for Future Collaboration
The Arctic region is an integral part of the Earth’s global climate system and where rapid environmental and social changes are already observed. Understanding the dynamics of such change and implications for the resilience of marine and social ecosystems is central to answering important questions about our global environment and sustainable development in the future.

The event will be opened by Mr Michael Nevin, Her Majesty´s Ambassador to Iceland, and Mr Einar Gunnarsson, Iceland’s Ambassador for Arctic Affairs and Chair of the Senior Arctic Officials
