Arctic Centre member of UArctic

08 september 2017

We are happy to announce that at the recent meeting of the Council of UArctic, in Nuuk, Greenland, members of Council voted unanimously to accept the Arctic Centre - University of Groningen as a new member of the University of the Arctic.

The University of the Arctic (UArctic) is a cooperative network of universities, colleges, and other organizations committed to higher education and research in the North. Network members share resources, facilities, and expertise to build post-secondary education programmes that are relevant and accessible to northern students. The overall goal is to create a strong, sustainable circumpolar region by empowering northerners and northern communities through education and shared knowledge. Durham becamse an Associate Member of UArctic in June 2013 in view of the long-standing interests in Arctic research across several departments, including past and present ice sheet change, oceanography, Arctic geology, Arctic Law and Governance, and Arctic ecosystems.
