EU-PolarNet: Connecting Science with Society

EU-Polarnet links European Polar research and infrastructure with global partners, (e.g. AMAP, NSF, CPC), International Polar Organizations (e.g. Arctic Council, APECS, IASC,SCAR), Polar programmes, Networks and International Initiatives (e.g. SAON, SOOS, SIOS, INTERACT, EUAIC, GCW, ICARP-III, Belmont, IPPI). Please follow link for further details.


CHOICEe is a joint project between the EPB and the European Space Agency (ESA), investigating the impacts of the extreme environments and isolation experienced by polar station overwintering staff on the human immune system.


INTERACT is an infrastructure project under the auspices of SCANNET, a circumarctic network of currently 89 terrestrial field bases in northern Europe, Russia, US, Canada, Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Scotland as well as stations in northern alpine areas. INTERACT specifically seeks to build capacity for research and monitoring all over the Arctic, and is offering access to numerous research stations through the Transnational Access Program.


Southern Ocean Carbon and Heat Impact on Climate (SO-CHIC) is a EU-funded project, in which the EPB is a partner. SO-CHIC investigates the role played by the Southern Ocean in the global climate system. The project began in November 2019.
