The Fram Centre Webinars was a series of webinars organized by APECS with the support of the Fram Centre in fall and winter 2012-2013. They highlighted the Fram Centre itself as well as its five flagship research programs: (1) Sea ice in the Arctic Ocean, technology and agreements, (2) Effects of climate change on sea and coastal ecology in the north, (3) Ocean acidification and ecosystems effects in Northern waters, (4) Effects of climate change on terrestrial ecosystems, landscapes, society and indigenous peoples, (5) Hazardous substances – effects on ecosystems and human health.

In total, six webinars were organized, and introduced the Fram Centre Concept and its five flagship research programmes. The webinars were organized by Ingeborg  G. Hallanger (University of Tromsø, Norway), Alexey Pavlov (APECS International Directorate, University of Tromsø, Norway) and Angelika Renner (Norwegian Polar Institute, Fram Centre, Tromsø, Norway).
