About the network series

Over the years, strong educational and research links have been established between Scotland and the Arctic. The scope of Arctic research in Scotland extends beyond natural and physical sciences to the humanities and social sciences, with politics, law, environment, energy development and economics gaining increasing prominence in recent years. Yet, despite the many research strengths of Scotland-based institutions, much of the Scottish research community remains fragmented.

This series of network events aims to lay the foundation for consolidating Scottish expertise on Arctic matters and building a network for more consistent involvement of Scottish institutions in Arctic research and international forums.

A series of 9 themed network events will be held between late February and March 2021 and concluded with 2 consolidation events to reflect on the discussions and begin the initial steps of establishing a Scotland-wide network dedicated to Arctic research.
