Polar Connectivity Webinar

Polar Connectivity Webinar

On 5 October, NORDUnet is hosting a webinar on the economic value of submarine cables in the Arctic and associated topics relating to fiber connectivity between Asia and the EU.

Discover how direct sub-sea fiber connectivity from the EU to Japan and Asia through the Artic region will add redundancy, and mitigate existing risks with the current EU-Asia connectivity, which is either through the Suez/Egypt or in control by Russia or China.

  • Sigurd Næss-Schmidt, Copenhagen Economics
