Aarhus University to strengthen research and education in the Arctic
The Arctic Science Partnership (ASP) joins 200 of the world’s leading scientists in Arctic research and covers a wide range of topics, such as health sciences and socio-economics as well as environment and climate related issues.
Employees and students have the possibility of working at all three research institutions, and a new interdisciplinary Arctic Research Centre established in Aarhus. The director of the centre, Professor Søren Rysgaard, is convinced that Arctic Research Centre will quickly become recognised internationally as a preeminent force and, at the same time, attract new students who would like to be part of an interdisciplinary, dynamic study environment and take part in a large-scale, international effort at the highest scientific level.
- Through the recently established ASP, we will have an enormous, very valuable, logistical platform which will offer our employees and students easy and low-cost access to icebreakers, research vessels and research stations in the Arctic area – something which is usually not easily attainable, says Søren Rysgaard.
