With the sea ice retreat the gateway to the high Arctic and the Polar Ocean is opening up. New opportunities appear which need to be met both in science, politics and through international collaboration.
Norwegian polar research has recently been evaluated, and we are challenged to raise our ambitions. In response, the Norwegian government is funding The Nansen LEGACY project, opening up new opportunities for international collaboration to improve our understanding of the world’s northernmost ocean. At the same time a strong environmental research agenda has been launched by Finland under their chairmanship of the Arctic Council. We need to take advantage of these opportunities. Where do we start? What actions do we need to take?
