The Project Office for the Development of the Arctic has set an ambitious goal of raising knowledge of the Russian public on the Arctic, this unique region.
The Office is involved in a variety of projects relating to social, economic and environmental aspects of human activity in the High North.
We engage top researchers and introduce best practices aiming to improve living standards of those who live in Arctic urban areas, as well as to provide support to the indigenous minorities of the Russian Arctic.
We also contribute to the development of ecotourism at the designated conservation areas in the Arctic, as well as to the projects aiming to protect threatened and endangered species of the region.
We give tribune and grants to institutions and people involved in Arctic research and related areas.
Apart from this, we organize and host conferences, workshops, seminars, round tables and meetings on issues relating to the Arctic.
We work to promote domestic and foreign investment into projects implemented in the Russian Arctic and pre-Arctic regions of Russia.
