The University of New England to Host Arctic Investment Conference
The University of New England
(UNE) and law firm Verrill Dana, LLP—both
NEC members—are partnering to host the first Arctic Investment Conference in
New England. This day-long event will give participants an overview of the
North Atlantic and Arctic investment landscapes.
The conference will explore how technologies developed to
solve problems and promote the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in the North
Atlantic and Arctic are creating potential investment opportunities in New
England. Additionally, participants will learn about key actors and how they
work across sectors, models for cross sector collaboration, and the proper
scale for investment.
The NEC congratulates UNE and Verill Dana for its success in
organizing the first Arctic Investment Conference in New England, and for promoting
partnerships between private enterprise and the stakeholders who are working to
address climate change.
