UK-Russia Arctic Science Connections

3rd April 2020

You are warmly invited to join us on Wednesday 3 June, between 1330 and 1530 for a session focused on Arctic science connections between researchers in the United Kingdom and Russia.

Over the past few years, SIN Russia and the NERC Arctic Office have been working with the UK Arctic science community to help foster and deepen UK-Russia Arctic science collaborations, with multiple workshops delivered, projects supported and the UK-Russia Arctic Bursaries Programme launched.

The session will be an important opportunity to hear directly from UK-based researchers who are establishing successful links with their Russian counterparts; to learn about recent practical collaborations and developing new opportunities for joint work; and to engage in discussion between researchers and policy/decision-makers about the future of strengthening UK-Russia Arctic connections.

The session is aimed at policy and decision makers from Parliament, Government Departments, research institutions, universities, Research Councils and beyond. All are welcome.

We have provisionally reserved a conference room in a central London location, but we recognise that in the circumstances the session may well take place online. Full details, including speakers, will be circulated prior to the meeting.
