The Franco-German seminar “Gateway to the Arctic” is an approach to bring together young scientists from different disciplines of natural and social sciences. The seminar will cover aspects of intensive exchange through a series of lectures and workshops addressing the latest research advances in various fields of Arctic research. The casual and interactive meeting format will privilege the participants, and partner institutions for networking and developing new collaborations. Looking at the two focus regions in the Arctic - Siberia and Alaska - organizers would like to work on how we can improve and promote interdisciplinary research activities.
