Let's get gathered to develop existing or establish new cooperation projects in Svalbard. We allocate funding up to 500 000 NOK for cooperation activities that contribute to increased scientific quality in Svalbard research.
The Governor of Svalbard recently sent out the Notification of the start-up process to create a management plan for Central-Spitsbergen, expansion of Nordenskiöld Land National Park and assessment of potential protection of Nedre Adventdalen and asks for input to the process.
Linn Svendheim (Nord University), Héléna Cuny (University of Occidental Brittany) and Vanessa Pitusi (UiT The Arctic University of Norway) all received Arctic Field Grant (AFG) from Svalbard Science Forum for doing fieldwork in connection with their Master projects. The AFG provides funding for fieldwork for students and researchers collecting data in Svalbard and Jan Mayen.
