INTERACTlogoINTERACT logoWe are very pleased to announce the next step in our cooperation with the EU 7th framework programme funded infrastructure project INTERACT- International Network for Terrestrial Research and Monitoring in the Arctic.
Last week PAGE21 and INTERACT signed a Memorandum of Understanding, which especially encourages exchange of best practices and creation of synergies in permafrost research.
The INTERACT project, led by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and Prof. Terry Callaghan, is a circumarctic network of 58 terrestrial field bases in northern Europe, Russia, US, Canada, Greenland, Iceland, The faroe Islands and Scotland. The project seeks to build capacity for research and monitoring in the European Arctic and beyond, and is offering access to numerous research stations through its Transnational Access-program.
For PAGE21 this cooperation means enhanced opportunities to conduct internationally coordinated permafrost research in the circumpolar scale and even broaden the geographical scope of activities within the project.
