The Svalbard Science Forum (SSF) promotes research coordination and collaboration in Svalbard. We organise meeting places and administer funding opportunities targeted towards fieldwork and cooperation.
Warmer ocean temperatures in Svalbard waters has resulted in new species moving into the food chain.
At least one member of the SSF secretariat will always be on the island this summer, ready for helping you out.
A new version of RiS – the indispensable database for anyone performing research in or around Svalbard – is now launched, putting everything researchers and others need in a single place.
The Russian coal company Trust Arktikugol is proposing a new area land-use plan for Pyramiden. The deadline for comments to this second round of public hearing is 15 June 2014.
The preliminary hearings for a new coal mine at Ispallen near Sveagruva and a new land-use plan for Longyearbyen are now open for comments to the process.
We have published the 2013 Annual Report and a new information folder about the work and activities at the Svalbard Science Forum.
