The Lapland University Consortium LUC is a community formed by two universities with a particular focus on global Arctic responsibility, sustainable tourism, future services, and reachability.
Our mission is to produce new knowledge and competence from the Arctic perspective so that life in the Arctic can continue to thrive in the future: We strive to ensure prosperity and well-being in this area by encouraging both individuals and communities to take responsibility, and our global networks focused on Arctic issues are harnessed to help us reach our strategic goals.

professional community also includes experts in tourism and related
fields functioning in Lapland Education Centre REDU and
