Research Infrastructure

Terrestrial Arctic Collaborative Network

Description The project has a main objective to build capacity for identifying, understanding, predicting and responding to diverse environmental changes throughout the wide environmental and land-use envelopes of the Arctic. This is necessary because the Arctic is so vast and environmental observing capacity is limited compared to most other latitudes. INTERACT is multidisciplinary: together, the stations in INTERACT host thousands of scientists from around the world who work on projects within the fields of glaciology, permafrost, climate, ecology, biodiversity and biogeochemical cycling. INTERACT station managers and researchers have established partnerships that are developing more efficient networks of sensors to measure changing environmental conditions and also making data storage and accessibility more efficient through a single portal. New communities of researchers are being offered access to Arctic terrestrial infrastructures while local stakeholders as well as major international organisations are involved in interactions with the infrastructures. INTERACT offers access to 20 stations in the northernmost Europe and the Russian Federation. It will give opportunities to researchers to work in locations that are generally difficult to access. In return, the input of new researchers will lead to cross fertilisation, comparative measurements at different locations and new research directions at the individual infrastructures.
