With a population of 72,066 and some 9,000 students and a centre for education and research – Tromsø is known as the capital of the Arctic. Tromsø, a city in Norway, is a major cultural hub above the Arctic Circle. It’s famed as a viewing point for colorful Northern Lights that often light up the nighttime sky. The city’s historic center, on the island of Tromsø, is distinguished by its centuries-old wooden houses. The 1965 Arctic Cathedral, with its distinctive peaked roof and soaring stained-glass windows, dominates the skyline.

The Artic University of Norway includes educational programs in biomarine science and biomedicine. In biomarine science, the University of­fers educational programs in marine biotechnology and bioprospecting, aquamedicine and seafood science, in addition general biology.

It is a short way from Tromsø to the Arctic Sea. We have a rich tradition of demanding expeditions and cautious use of marine resources; to exploit what we find in the best possible way. We uncover all the opportunities and value the sea creates by means of our skilled research base and scientific knowledge.
