The Scandinavian Arctic is the most developed part of the Arctic region. It is multifaceted and based on specific challenges and rich opportunities. There is particular challenges related to remote locations and sparse populations, cold climate, remote communities and climate changes. However, some of these challenges can be tackled by new space assets and new space infrastructure.

What role can this region take in the further development of the Arctic related to development research and innovation? How can earth observation services contribute to a better understanding and predictability to climate changes, environmental hazards and maritime monitoring? There is a strong tradition of cooperation within the Scandinavian Arctic. How can cooperation within the space industry be further developed, what should be the prioritized areas and what are the new business opportunities?
