In 2020, Russia and the world scientific community will celebrate two significant dates - the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica by Russian sailors and the 100th anniversary of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute, which is one of the largest scientific institutions in the world engaged in the study of polar regions. Over the past periods, extensive experience in research projects within the Arctic and Antarctic has been accumulated, which requires reflection and detailed consideration.
