TransportDEMENTIA 5 meeting in 2023

The 5th TransportDEMENTIA meeting will be helt from
Monday, August 28th (flight-in) – Friday, September 1st, 2023 (flight-out)
in the Artic Capital Tromsø.

Tromsø is well known for its most northern university of the world – the University of the Arctic (UiT). It has excellent fishing and whale watching opportunities, and is located beyond the arctic cicle with wonderful nights with the magnificent Northern Lights (Aurora borealis overview at Tromsø).

Our meeting will be helt during the time in the year where the days are still long and we also have excellent conditions for nightwatches for Northern Lights. Global & Tromsø 4-hours-forcast at UiT.
