ASAU international activities in the Arctic


University’s Department of International and Interregional Cooperation held negotiations with partners from Canada to participate in supporting and developing distance education programs in circumpolar sciences.
It was also proposed to create a new thematic network “Arctic Agriculture”, which will expand research links, create joint educational programs, and participate in academic mobility programs.
Thematic networks enhance the role of higher educational institutions of the North as creators, carriers and disseminators of knowledge about the Arctic and its remote regions.
Recall that in March 2020, the department of international and interregional cooperation of the university held an international interdisciplinary seminar in the framework of the Winter Arctic School on the topic “Arctic Food Security” with foreign students from Norway, Iceland, Poland and Finland.
