Ramboll is planning our 2nd Arctic Round Table, where we will look at the development and future role of industrial development, incl. fishery, tourism and aqua culture, and discuss their potential impact on the Arctic economy in the short-, medium- and long-term.
We will discuss the importance of policy making, competence building in society and private-public partnerships as part of developing strong business sectors. We will also present studies and cases from Greenland and Svalbard as a basis for reflection and discussion.
At the 1st Arctic Round Table in Tromsø 23-24 October 2013, we concluded that job opportunities and attractive and liveable Arctic cities are a prerequisite for ensuring sustainable development in the North.
Ideally, Arctic societies should be supported by a variety of industries and business sectors, and besides new sectors like the energy intensive industries, oil & gas and mining, less investment heavy sectors such as fisheries and tourism also play an important role in the overall Arctic economy.
The overarching ambition with the Arctic Round Table is to bring together important stakeholders to discuss ideas that may
contribute to the positive development of the Arctic region.
The 2nd Arctic Round Table will be held at the Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre in Reykjavik on 24-25 June 2014.
Harpa is actually Ramboll’s most famous building project in Iceland, opened in 2011. Ramboll was responsible for all engineering disciplines. The building is designed through the use of digital 3D models for structures, ventilation, plumbing and electrical installations. During the project design phase, the Harpa 3D model was the largest digital 3D model of a building in the world.
