One of the main goals of the ArcticPro Lapland project has been to update and improve existing research, development and innovation facilities regarding arctic protective wear at the University of Lapland and Lapland University of Applied Sciences. To do this, we sought to find out what is needed now and in the future in the field of cold and arctic wear. To continue the work started in ArcticPro network survey conducted in 2013, we decided to examine what themes or issues especially interest or concern suppliers and users and where they see research is needed. This article concentrates on the insights of user research conducted with representatives of different companies and organisations using work and protective wear in arctic conditions. User needs for arctic work and protective wear are discussed
