Eva Pongracz Eva Pongracz is Professor of Energy Systems and Environmental Engineering in the Water, Energy and Environmental Engineering (WE3) research unit of the Faculty of Technology. She is an environmental engineer with a keen interest of progressing sustainable development. Her research focus is in energy transition and circular economy, with a special attention on arctic issues. She is also leading research into smart energy systems, renewable energy, decarbonization and critical material recycling. She has an extensive collaboration network and project experience across the Northern Periphery and Arctic region, promoting environmental protection, decentralized energy solutions and sustainable regional development. Victor Pavlov Victor Pavlov is a PhD candidate at the WE3 research unit at the University of Oulu. He has been educated at four northern universities: University of Oulu (Finland), The Arctic University of Norway (Tromso), The University Centre of Svalbard (Norway), and Murmansk State Technical University (Russia). His main research topic is sustainability of marine oil spill response methods, focusing on applications in the Arctic Ocean. He is currently researcher and responsible for communications in the 3-year APP4SEA project (Arctic Preparedness Platform for Oil Spill and Other Environmental Accidents), funded by Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme (2014-2020). Niko Hanninen Niko Hanninen graduated from University of Oulu (Finland) with a licentiate degree in history, but for the past 15 years he has been serving his alma mater in the field of environmental engineering. He has gathered extensive experience from development and cooperation projects in the Barents and Northern Periphery and Arctic region, which have covered various fields from Green cities to Renewable energy and Arctic oil spill response preparedness. He works as a project manager at the WE3 research unit and coordinates the APP4SEA project.
