Shiver your way to the University Prize

23 May 2012

A scientific as well as artistic expedition to the Arctic – that’s what the Netherlands Scientific Expedition Edgeøya Spitsbergen is about. A hundred people, including scientists, students and press, will be spending ten days on a boat to the relatively unknown eastern part of Spitsbergen to study and report on Spitsbergen. With this project the University of Groningen Artic Centre aims to win the national Academische Jaarprijs.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
