ARCCoM is pleased to announce that it has joined the organizing committee of the international forum AKTRU2019 an interdisciplinary symposium and summer school with an emphasis on life and earth sciences and environmental sustainability. This year’s conference will be held from July 8-19 in the Altai Mountains, a pristine region in southern Siberia, Russia. Information about the conference can be found at:
Taking Minnesota Business to Russia
ARCCoM is putting together a group of Minnesota businesses interested in traveling to the conference. Minnesota businesses will discover that Altai’s unique geographic profile and rugged remoteness present fresh opportunities for their products and services. As such, ARCCoM will assist Minnesota businesses in finding valuable partners in Altai.
Altai: An Economy as Diverse as its Environment
While agriculture remains the economic engine of the Altai Republic, the region has successfully added new industries and opportunities. The mountains, tundra, and lakes that punctuate this diverse environment have contributed to the growth of a burgeoning eco and bio-tourism industry. Additionally, the successful development of the Altai Biopharmaceutical Cluster has become the latest high-growth industry to further diversify the republic’s economy.
A Focus on Sustainability
Individuals and businesses working or researching topics related to environmental sustainability will find value in sponsoring or joining the three-day symposium. Here are just a few of the selected topics:
- Renewable Energy Sources in Socio Economics of Remote Regions
- Renewable and Environmentally Friendly Energy Resources for Remote Locations
- The Human Park: Industrialization, Resource Utilization and Climate Change in the 21st Century
