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.
Arctic research is demanding. Project leaders have to stay updated on on going research activity while planning for new field activities. The planning phase requires hours of browsing journals, submission of formal documents and booking of facilities. If you are conducting research in Svalbard, the improved version of the RiS Portal (Research in Svalbard) has now made your work a lot easier.
The Research Council of Norway just received applications to two calls. 18 applications were submitted to the call dedicated to enhance cooperation between Norwegian and Russian researchers in Svalbard in 2015-2017. 15 applications were received to Svalbard Strategic Grant for international workshops and cooperation projects in 2015.
The Research Council of Norway has issued a call for proposals for activities to promote research cooperation between Norwegian and Russian researchers in Svalbard. The application deadline is 26 November 2014. A survey shows that research groups find this type of funding helps to strengthen cooperation.
