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.
