The EU Polar Cluster is a network of collaborative polar projects, which are funded by the European Commission, and three permanent members: the EPB, APECS and SIOS.
The cluster thus merges a broad spectrum of research and coordination activities - ranging from the most up-to-date findings on permafrost and sea ice, from enhancing observation to improving predictions, and from networking research stations to coordinating access to icebreakers.
The EU Polar Cluster is coordinated through EU-PolarNet 2. We encourage members of all Cluster Members to sign up to EU-PolarNet2's Catalyst Platform - a new collaboration platform.
An important feature of the Catalyst Platform is the discussions forum, which is used by the EU Polar Cluster Action groups to coordinate their activities. Importantly, all EU Polar Cluster members should sign up to the platform and post their news, events and relevant deliverables or outputs directly at the platform.
The EU Polar Cluster website is hosted by the European Polar Board, and managed by the British Antarctic Survey.
