James collaborates at UArctic meeting
In order to tighten and increase knowledge sharing between Arctic researchers in the UK and Russia, a workshop was hosted at the Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI) by UArctic. Talks covered a range of subjects from the direction of the SPRI’s research directions, ecosystem changes in the Arctic, and impacts of northern industrial activities.
Henry Burgess, head of Arctic office (Natural Environment Research Council, UK) described capabilities and next steps of UK research activities, Marina Kalinina, UArctic VP Interregional Cooperation presented challenges and opportunities of academic mobility in the circumpolar region and Igor Osipov, head of UArctic Science&Research Analytics Institute spoke about Arctic research analytics.
Overall, collaborations like this allow researchers to better communicate and collaborate on interests they share.
