Abstract [en]

The Thematic Network in Arctic Engineering and Science (TN AES) was created In June 2008 when it was approved by the University of the Arctic's Council. The TN AES focuses on the development of sustainable technologies through engineering and science in the Arctic. The goals of the TN AES are twofold: The main goal is to improve the quality of life and allow the development of natural resources in the arctic through innovations in technologies used in the construction, maintenance and operation of infrastructure, housing, public/private facilities and equipment. The other goal is to assess the impact of climate change on these technologies. This paper introduces briefly the University of the Arctic to the engineering community and then describes current and planned network activities, such as joint education programs.
