IARPC Collaborations Webinar Series: Creating a National Scientific Mission: The Nansen Legacy Project. The Nansen Legacy project breaks new ground in national-scale Arctic research collaborations, forming a national team representing nearly Norway’s entire marine Arctic expertise including 130 scientists, 50 new recruiting positions and Norway’s new research icebreaker. This $97 million project for the exploration and understanding of Norway’s ice-covered water and adjacent Polar Ocean commenced in 2018 and will run for six years. This unique collaboration required the development of new evaluation and financing strategies, challenging research institutions and government. It presents a step towards the future cooperation between the five arctic coastal states in order to comprehend the entirety of the Arctic Ocean. Webinar featuring Dr. Paul Wassman commences April 24, 2018, 12:30 PM Eastern Time.
