TOPIC 1: How can improved operational weather and ocean (including sea ice) as well as climate forecast support safer operations in the Arctic?

TOPIC 2: Is co-developing new services, products and technologies for safe operations and improved joint monitoring in the Arctic Ocean the way forward for improving cooperation between ship operators, research institutions and local communities?

TOPIC 3: How can we reduce the overall environmental footprint and prevent negative environmental impacts in the Arctic? (maritime or terrestrial environmental impacts?)
