An evaluation panel identified by the National Academy of Sciences, USA, has provided an external evaluation of The Nansen LEGACY scientific proposal.
Their overall conclusion was “The overall research prospectus is comprehensive and timely, indeed urgent, given the changing seascape of the Barents Sea and the entire Arctic ecosystem. The plan of action and management is sound and the leader, co-leaders, and scientific staff are outstanding. The Evaluation Committee unanimously endorses the Nansen LEGACY Project.”
The project has thus proved to have a high scientific quality, and the work on the financial plan is progressing.
