The Terrestrial Ecosystem Flagship in Ny-Ålesund has recently been awarded funding for the project titled “The Terrestrial Ecosystem Flagship in Ny-Ålesund: From workshops to research projects”

The project aims at building on the network and collaboration already established within the Terrestrial Ecosystem Flagship group at Ny-Ålesund and progress from literature review to multi-party and multi-disciplinary collaborative research projects in the field. This will be achieved by organizing several meetings from 2021 to 2023. This one-day meeting is the first of these.

The agenda of the workshop includes both keynote speakers and discussion sessions about the topic of the project “The Terrestrial Ecosystem Flagship in Ny-Ålesund: From workshops to research projects”.
