Check your member profile for updates

Member profiles are one of the most meaningful ways to promote your institution and its activities. They provide a comprehensive overview of your institution, highlight its Arctic expertise, and show how your institution contributes to Arctic higher education and research.

Check regularly that your institution's basic information is up to date. Note that higher education institutions have two profiles, general and education-focused, with slightly different content.

To edit your member profile, contact the Secretariat ( and we'll send you a link to your member profile update form. You can see an example form here.

As an example of a complete member profile, see UiT The Arctic University of Norway's member profile.
