APPLICATE

Arctic Project

APPLICATE (Advanced Prediction in Polar regions and beyond: modelling, observing system design and LInkages associated with a Changing Arctic climaTE) is a €8 million project, financed by the EU HORIZON 2020 Research and Innovation programme and involves 16 partners from nine countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom). The project will be carried out over a period of four years.

ARC-SAR

Arctic Project

The overall aim of ARCSAR is to fast‐track uptake of existing innovations and knowledge by practitioners, predict future needs for innovation and knowledge, and identify priorities for security and standardisation across the Arctic and North-Atlantic (ANA) region. The ARCSAR project will establish international best practice and propose innovation platforms for the professional security and emergency response institutions in the Arctic and the North-Atlantic.

ArcticHubs

Polar Project

Global drivers, local consequences: Tools for global change adaptation and sustainable development of industrial and cultural Arctic “hubs”.

The ArcticHubs Project is an ambitious, multi-disciplinary international collaboration that aims to develop research-led, practice-based solutions to the urgent challenges faced in the Arctic. The project will develop three core tools:   1. Public participatory geographical information systems (GIS), 2. Guidelines for ‘social licence to operate, 3. Building of future scenarios to be applied in the Arctic.

 

ARICE

Arctic Project

ARICE (Arctic Research Icebreaker Consortium: A strategy for meeting the needs for marine-based research in the Arctic) is project financed by the EU HORIZON2020 RIA Research and Innovation action on the topic “Integrating Activities for Starting Communities”. ARICE joins the efforts of 14 partners from 12 different countries (Germany, Sweden, United Kingdom, Norway, Iceland, France, Italy, Poland, Finland, Denmark, Canada and the United States of America). The project will start on the 1st of January 2018 and will run for 4 years. ARICE is an international cooperation strategy aiming at providing Europe with better capacities for marine-based research in the ice-covered Arctic Ocean.

BLUE-ACTION

Arctic Project

Blue-Action will provide fundamental and empirically-grounded, executable science that quantifies and explains the role of a changing Arctic in increasing predictive capability of weather and climate of the Northern Hemisphere. To achieve this Blue-Action will take a transdisciplinary approach, bridging scientific understanding within Arctic climate, weather and risk management research, with key stakeholder knowledge of the impacts of climatic weather extremes and hazardous events; leading to the co-design of better services.

CAPARDUS

Polar Project

The ongoing climate change in the Arctic causes a reduction of the sea ice cover, which improves access to the region and its resources. As a result new opportunities for development emerge, regarding exploration of natural resources, tourism, transport, and other industries. The EU-funded project CAPARDUS is a coordination and support action aimed at capacity-building to support sustainable development in the Arctic. The project will develop a 'Comprehensive Framework Model' for Arctic standards with a focus on environmental monitoring.

The EU Polar Cluster website is hosted by the European Polar Board, and managed by the British Antarctic Survey.
