AlaskaNor Breakout Session @ HND21

3 Years of AlaskaNor: Arctic Maritime Transportation in a post-Covid-19 world

Alaska and North Norway share similar characteristics, particularly regarding the regions’ economic dependence on maritime industries and their potential for blue economy development. However, no knowledge has been shared or even attained yet concerning the opportunities for both regions to mutually tackle the manifold challenges of regionally developing their blue economy. Over the past three years, the AlaskaNor project has aimed to addresses this knowledge gap.

In a breakout session at this year's High North Dialogue we discussed AlaskaNor’s thoughts on Arctic maritime transportation in a post-Covid-19 world.

Program overview:

  • Introduction & Moderation: Andreas Raspotnik, AlaskaNor project manager
  • AlaskaNor and Arctic maritime transportation: Malte Humpert, The Arctic Institute – Center for Circumpolar Security Studies
  • Arctic maritime transportation in a post Covid-world, perspectives from Alaska and North Norway
