The Arctic is believed to be a remote wilderness, but all parts have been heavily impacted by human activities, starting with prehistoric hunting. Research of the Arctic Centre is focused on the long-term relation between humans and nature in the Arctic. The center wants to understand the human impacts on nature from an historical perspective to have a better understanding of the current socio-ecological systems in order to plan and implement sustainable futures.
Research of the Arctic Centre is part of Sustainable Society, one of the three main focus areas of the University of Groningen.
