ArcticNet and pan-arctic network INTERACT announce new partnership
ArcticNet is pleased to announce a new partnership with INTERACT to encourage cooperation and increase collaboration between researchers in northern regions around the world.
The Memorandum of Understanding between the organizations will promote scientific cooperation, encourage the exchange of knowledge, and foster the creation of synergies in Arctic research between facilities, researchers, and nations.
INTERACT is a pan-arctic network of 88 terrestrial field bases in Russia, northern Europe, US, Canada, Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Scotland, as well as stations located in northern alpine areas. The multidisciplinary network hosts scientists from around the world, and works to build capacity for research and monitoring in the Arctic and beyond.
By committing to sharing information and cooperating on research and training activities, the partnership will advance ArcticNet’s goal to contribute to the development and dissemination of knowledge in the North.
“The Arctic spans multiple nations, regions and indigenous territories; to understand the changing environment and its impacts on northern regions, we must take a full-world view. It just makes sense to join together in promoting scientific cooperation between our Networks” said Christine Barnard of ArcticNet.
