Presentation of activities and opportunities for cooperation of the Polar Geophysical Institute at an international conference Arctic Frontiers – Smart Arctic

On January 21-23, 2019, the Arctic Arctic Smart Frontiers International Conference was held in Troms (Norway). Global climate change, negative consequences and new perspectives for the Arctic were the main issues discussed at the conference. It was recognized that without a deep scientific study of this phenomenon, it is impossible to develop new projects for the development of mineral and biological resources of the Arctic region.

Within the framework of the conference, a scientific seminar was held on “Creating a Coherent Observing System – the Role of Innovations and Technologies”, organized by scientific institutions participating in the SIOS Consortium (Svalbard Integrated Arctic Earth Observing System). At the seminar, the assistant director of the PGI for international cooperation, Skiotis Elena Ionasovna, presented the main activities of the institute, discussing the possibilities of cooperation and the implementation of projects aimed at studying the manifestations of space weather at the high latitudes. Discussed and identified in the course of the discussion with Hekki Likhovainen (head of SIOS) were possible mutually beneficial prospects for cooperation, including joint projects, and the exchange of satellite, rocket and ground observations.
