Sustainable use of resources

Economic growth in the north is based on the continued (and increasing) use of natural resources. UiT will develop cutting-edge knowledge on:

  • The interaction between traditional and new industries pertaining to economics, culture and international law
  • Sustainable use of marine resources, including (but not limited to) fisheries, aquaculture and marine biotechnology
  • Prerequisites for sustainable resource managemnet and development
