Hello from the EU Arctic Cluster!

Hello from the EU Arctic Cluster!

Today we would like to introduce you to our network, the projects comprising the cluster and our joint actions, which you might want to keep an eye on

The EU Arctic Cluster is a network of Horizon 2020 and a Framework Programme 7 funded Arctic projects. Currently it comprises eight projects:  APPLICATE, ARICE, BLUE-ACTION, EU-PolarNet, ICE-ARC, INTAROS, INTERACT and NUNATARYUK, along with the European Polar Board (EPB) as an affiliated partner. The cluster thus merges a broad spectrum of research and coordination activities - ranging from the most up-to-date findings on permafrost and sea ice, from enhancing observation to improving predictions, and from networking research stations to coordinating access to icebreakers.

Our objective is to bring the insights from our various areas of expertise together in order to provide one entry point to EU funded Arctic research. Jointly we are aiming at providing policy-relevant information and supporting the EU in implementing its integrated policy for the Arctic.

How do we do this? By fostering international cooperation, by reporting on the impacts of climate change on the Arctic's fragile environment, by promoting sustainable development and by cooperating with policy makers, indigenous peoples and local communities, business and NGO representatives and other societal actors.

Now, let us present you each project in a nutshell.
