January 12th, 2018

Britt Kramvig, from The Arctic University of Norway, and Annika Nilsson, from The Stockholm Environment Institute, have been appointed as members of The Norwegian Scientific Academy for Polar Research (NVP). NVP strategies toward 2020 aims to advance knowledge of the earth – how its elements, forces and species interact, promote collaboration across scientific disciplines, and broaden cooperation across national boundaries.

The Academy will, in the year to come, give priorities to engage in public debates and political processes on issues that relate to the Arctic and Antarctic, as well as to establish the Academy as an independent think tank on polar issues. In addition the NVP promotes research and education and is strategically recruiting outstanding scientists within core polar research areas that aim at exploring the great unknown.  In the 5-year period of the strategic plan, the Academy shall promote interdisciplinary research addressing the knowledge gaps of the Arctic Ocean, including cooperation on logistics.

We congratulate both Britt and Annika. Read about the other new members here.
