Fifth Joint Northern Environmental Research Symposium 2012
The symposium will be held on September 10-15, 2012 partly at the University of Oulu, Finland and partly at the Oulanka Research Station in Kuusamo, Finland.
The Symposium will introduce the latest outcome of research programs that have been implemented jointly by Hokkaido University, University of Alberta, and Finnish universities, as well as international programs to train young researchers on environmental issues in northern regions, where rapid changes have taken place due to climate change and other global processes. It will also be a forum for discussion on the continuation of joint research programs and the feasibility of research plans. The aim is also to strengthen the collaborative infrastructures especially between Finland, Japan, and Canada.
The symposium is organized together with University of Oulu, University of Lapland, University of Hokkaido, and Finnish Institute in Japan.
