The Second Arctic Science Ministerial (ASM2) is co-organised by the European Commission, the Republic of Finland and the Federal Republic of Germany in Berlin on 25-26 October 2018.
Anticipating that other groups or organisations might want to use the opportunity to arrange side events, the organisers of the ASM2 have agreed on a policy regarding side events held in the margins of the Ministerial.
Side events are welcome but have to be organised and financed independently. The organisers of ASM2 will not be able to provide meeting space or organizational/financial support. However, side events, supporting the overall objectives of ASM2, may receive formal endorsement by the organisers and visibility on the ASM2 website.
If you would like to organise a side event, you can apply for formal endorsement by submitting a short description of the event (max. 1 page). In your proposal, please list the name(s) of the organiser(s), indicating the main contact person, the date and venue and a description of the format and scope of the event. Please send your proposal to:
