In October 2020 the four Ny-Ålesund jointly arranged an online session with keynote talks on the Nutrient Cycle in the Arctic linked to environmental change. The keynote talks were an appetizer for an open workshop on the same topic taking place in Orvieto, Italy, hopefully some time in 2021.

Both the online keynotes and the open workshop are part of a Ny-Ålesund joint flagship project aiming at understanding perturbations in nutrient cycles in the Artic linked to ongoing environmental change. The nutrient cycling involves all compartments of the ecosystem and will also bring all four Ny-Ålesund flagship programs together.
