IARPC Collaborations Webinar Series: Creating a National Scientific Mission: The Nansen Legacy Project.
Collaborations Webinar Series: Creating a National Scientific Mission: The Nansen
Legacy Project. The Nansen Legacy project breaks new ground in national-scale
Arctic research collaborations, forming a national team representing nearly
Norway’s entire marine Arctic expertise including 130 scientists, 50 new
recruiting positions and Norway’s new research icebreaker. This $97 million
project for the exploration and understanding of Norway’s ice-covered water and
adjacent Polar Ocean commenced in 2018 and will run for six years. This unique
collaboration required the development of new evaluation and financing
strategies, challenging research institutions and government. It presents a
step towards the future cooperation between the five arctic coastal states in
order to comprehend the entirety of the Arctic Ocean. Webinar featuring Dr.
Paul Wassman commences April 24, 2018, 12:30 PM Eastern Time. More info at https://www.iarpccollaborations.org/webinars.html
