EU-PolarNet would like to invite participants to the open part of the projects second general assembly, which coincides with this year's Arctic Science Summit Week in Fairbanks, Alaska.

EU-PolarNet is a consortium of expertise and infrastructure for polar research, bringing together 22 European research institutions from 17 countries. From 2015-2020, EU-PolarNet will develop and deliver a strategic framework and mechanisms to prioritise science, optimise the use of polar infrastructure, and broker new relationships with international partners that will lead to the co-design of polar research projects that deliver tangible benefits for society.

Those interested in the work of EU-PolarNet and eager to join a discussion on the projects future tasks and expectations are welcome to attend the open afternoon session. A special focus of the meeting will be on stakeholder mapping, the development of a coordinated European Polar Data Infrastructure, and the identification of research priorities for European polar science.
