Norwegian interests in the Arctic and Antarctic, as well as national and international commitments, means that we have a particular responsibility to promote knowledge that is necessary to exercise a sound management and business activity in the polar regions.
The seminar “The Arctic: Unfurling Research and policy Perspectives” was organized by the Norwegian Embassy in New Delhi in cooperation with the Ministry of Earth Science of India on May 5th.
After four-years of preparations efforts are now underway to launch a new phase of the Svalbard Integrated Earth Observing System (SIOS), the large-scale collaborative research infrastructure project in Svalbard. The objective of the project is to gain a better understanding of the major environmental and climate-related challenges.
The ten projects will contribute to enhanced cooperation between Norwegian and Russian scientists in Svalbard.
