Scientific capacity building

The plan to organize a summer school in 2020 had to be cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. To compensate for the cancellation, two research school onboard KV Svalbard were organized by NERSC in 2020 and 2021. These activities were organized in collaboration with the Useful Arctic Knowledge project (coordinated by NERSC) and with the University of the Arctic Thematic Network on Collaborative Resource Management (coordinated by NORDECO). INTAROS also contributed to a further 12 courses organised by third parties.
Three prizes were offered to young professionals to support and incentivize their participation in scientific conferences. The first of these was a travel grant to EGU 2019, and the remaining awards were prizes for outstanding contributions to EGU 2021.
INTAROS will continue to support early career researchers throughout the remainder of the project by featuring their research in an online poster gallery, in a series of inspirational films about their work, and by encouraging their contribution to online learning materials for their peers.
