EVENT 3/23: Workshop on International Access to Research Infrastructure in the Arctic
March 9, 2021
As part of Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW 2021), this workshop is for initiating dialogue and developing networks that facilitate access for international scientists to national research facilities and infrastructure in the Arctic. Topics to be explored will include Identifying challenges, best practices, and next steps:
- What are the most urgent logistical needs and locations for polar research in the next 10 years?
- What are the scientific and logistical possibilities and challenges for implementing shared international access?
- What mechanisms or exchange modes can be envisaged to coordinate networks of polar research infrastructure (e.g., vessels, stations, aircraft) at an international level?
