Project High North Research Documents 2.0

UiT The Arctic University of Norway is devoted to research on and development of the Arctic. Developing and running a discovery service on scholarly literature and research data with relevance to the High North and the Arctic is thus falling nicely in line with this. And the UiT and its management has been backing our HNRD service, and is also backing our plan to now run a pilot project in order to revitalize the service. The pilot project will be a cooperation between Norwegian Polar Institute and UiT The Arctic University of Norway.

Our pilot project will survey possible cooperating partners world wide. Interested institutions, who work within the thematic scope of the Arctic, are hereby invited to contact us, so we can start discussing how we may cooperate in order to develop a best possible service, to the benefit of all scholars as well as others who have interests in the Arctic.
