Scientists are gathering in Gimli, MB., tomorrow for days of discussions related to the Arctic and scientific partnerships.
Seventy delegates from Greenland and Demark will meet with 55 delegates from the University of Manitoba at the Arctic Science Partnership’s inaugural meeting.
They will meet in Gimli from Tuesday, Nov. 13, till Nov. 15, and then they will come to the University of Manitoba tour the Sea-ice Environmental Research Facility (SERF) and the Centre for Earth Observation Science.
In August of this year University of Manitoba President David Barnard travelled Nuuk, Greenland’s capital, to sign the Arctic Science Partnership (ASP). The agreement is between the U of M, Denmark’s Aarhus University, and the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources.
ASP brings together more than 200 of the world’s leading Arctic researchers. It enables the partners to share scientific expertise, knowledge and infrastructures, making a number of laboratories, research vessels, field equipment and field stations mutually available to the researchers. It also provides exciting opportunities for employees and students to work across all three research institutions. The ASP will ensure synergy in research, education and dissemination of results to public, industry, policy-makers and northerners.
