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


Research groups within this key area:

Causes and effects of changes in climate and environment, Technology that solves challenges related to health, the external environment and safety, Public health, preventing and curing disease and improving living conditions for all age groups, Sustainable use of marine resources, including (but not limited to) fisheries, aquaculture and marine biotechnology
