“ArcticNet is continuing to partner with Mitacs as we share our common goal of supporting and training the next generation of Arctic experts. Together, we aim to train experts on Arctic issues in the North and in the South, unleashing and building capacity for research in cold regions.” – Dr. Christine Barnard, ArcticNet Executive Director
“At a time of immense change and new challenges in the Arctic, the people who live there, along with governments, scientists, and the international community have identified research gaps in the region. Closing those gaps by driving new research and spearheading new regional initiatives will be critical in the years to come. Mitacs is thrilled to partner with ArcticNet to create opportunities for a new generation of Arctic researchers to build innovative and inclusive projects that address issues including climate change and challenges facing Indigenous communities.” – Dr. John Hepburn, CEO, Mitacs
