New research project: Sustainable tourism development in the Nordic Arctic


John Armbrecht, Erik Lundberg and Lena Mossberg of the Centre for Tourism has, as part of an international research consortium, been awarded research grants from the International Network Program (Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education) and Nordregio for research on sustainable tourism development in the arctic region.

The purpose of the project is to establish a network of researchers from around the Arctic by conducting a workshop that brings together academic experts in Arctic marine resource economics, tourism and marketing with tourism practitioners whose livelihoods rely upon living marine resources. The project aim is to investigate how to utilize existing human capital, natural resources (especially living marine resources) and infrastructure capacity to develop innovative sustainable tourism that can diversify and make Arctic economic development more resilient.
