Speaker Series

The Aurora Research Institute Speaker Series was developed to strengthen public awareness of research taking place in the north and to engage northerners in the dialogue. It also provides opportunities for northern youth to access research and researchers, and hopefully be inspired to become involved in northern research. 

Presentations are held at the Aurora Research Institute throughout the year. The Western Arctic Research Centre hosts an annual Summer Speaker Series to highlight the many research teams and projects in the region.
