In partnership with the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS), the EPB organises a series of webinars that aim to connect polar research and policy. The webinars are aimed at polar researchers, policymakers and other professionals at all career stages.
The fourth EPB-APECS webinar will be held 13:00-14:00 (UTC) on Tuesday 5th June 2018. Kristina Bär, EU-PolarNet Communications Officer, will introduce the EU Arctic Cluster and how it is bringing together EU-funded polar research projects to jointly maximise their impact.
The EU Arctic Cluster is a network of Horizon 2020 and a Framework Programme 7 funded Arctic projects, with the European Polar Board (EPB) as an affiliated partner. Currently it comprises eight projects: APPLICATE, ARICE, Blue-Action, EU-PolarNet, ICE-ARC, INTAROS, INTERACT and NUNATARYUK. The Cluster thus merges a broad spectrum of research and coordination activities - ranging from the most up-to-date findings on permafrost and sea ice, from enhancing observation to improving predictions, and from networking research stations to coordinating access to icebreakers.
The EU Arctic Cluster's objective is to bring the insights from various areas of expertise together in order to provide one entry point to EU funded Arctic research. Jointly the Cluster aims to provide policy-relevant information and support the EU in implementing its integrated policy for the Arctic.
