The Svalbard Science Forum (SSF) promotes research coordination and collaboration in Svalbard. We organise workshops and administer funding schemes targeted towards fieldwork and cooperation. Our website provides information for researchers and about research in Svalbard.
Up to NOK 1.5 million is available for cooperation projects and workshops related to research in Svalbard. The deadline for applications to Svalbard Science Forum's Strategic Grants is November 27.
In order to do blood sampling from birds and other wildlife in Svalbard, your project will need two different permissions: First one from the Norwegian Animal Research Authority and then a second one from the Governor.
The Governor of Svalbard has started the work on a management plan for the national parks and bird sanctuaries on the west coast of Spitsbergen. They now ask for input to the process, also from the scientific community.
Svalbard Science Forum received 87 applications in the call for Arctic Field Grant (AFG) in 2014. The total amount applied for was NOK 5,2 million.
For the next three days more than 130 scientists, managers and others connected to Ny Ålesund are gathered at the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) in Rome for the 11th NySMAC seminar.
The call for proposals for Arctic Field Grant (AFG) 2014 is now open.
