Annual Meetings

MARGISTAR meetings serve as platforms for sharing cutting-edge research findings, making connections, and initiating meaningful collaborations. MARGISTAR meetings bring together esteemed researchers, professionals, and enthusiasts from various disciplines. Our annual meetings empower participants to explore innovative approaches to scientific knowledge.


MARGISTAR's first annual meeting took place in Inari and Utsjoki in Finland on the 23rd and 24th of May, 2023. MARGISTAR meetings foster creative collaboration. As well as working group meetings, this gathering provided MARGISTAR members with the opportunity to meet each other face-to-face and learn about the periphery challenges facing the municipality of Utsjoki and local and indigenous Sámi people.
