Thematic Network in Arctic Engineering
The goals of the Thematic Network in Arctic Engineering are to improve the quality
of life in the north by focusing on the development of sustainable technologies that
will allow for natural resource development while preserving the environment. There
is also a focus on researching climate change adaption strategies for northern regions.
The University of Alaska Anchorage is the lead member of UArctic's Thematic Network
in Arctic Engineering. Other partners include: Lapland University of Applied Sciences
(Finland, co-lead), Centre of Arctic Technology (ARTEK) Technical University of Denmark,
and Lulea University of Technology (Sweden).
UAA's lead faculty member for this network is Dr. Hannele Zubeck

Thematic Network for Health and Well-Being in the Arctic
The UArctic Thematic Network for Health and Well-Being in the Arctic works to promote
research projects concerning the health of northern peoples for the purpose of improving
the sustainable development of health and well-being in circumpolar regions. UAA is
currently working jointly with other members of this network to develop UArctic's
first complete PhD program, which will result in a doctoral degree in Arctic Health
UAA's lead faculty member for this network is Dr. Rhonda Johnson
