UM Today: Arctic Partners

On June 8, 2012, University of Manitoba President David Barnard was in Greenland’s capital city of Nuuk to sign an agreement with colleagues from other Arctic nations. The trip happened with little or no fanfare—but when he signed the Arctic Science Partnership (ASP) Memorandum of Understanding, it amplified the research opportunities and impact of our students and faculty.

The partnership brings together more than 300 of the world’s leading Arctic scientists from the greatest Arctic science teams: Denmark’s Aarhus University, Greenland’s Institute of Natural Resources and the U of M’s Centre for Earth Observation Science (CEOS) in the Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment, Earth, and Resources.
