Through the SSF Strategic Grants, the Svalbard Science Forum and the Norwegian Research Council have financed our proposal to organise a collaboration workshop on Arctic bivalves – The BIVARC project!
This is our great opportunity for COOPENOR and all other Arctic bivalve projects to meet, exchange and discuss their research. We hope that this will lead to an increased coordination of international projects located in the Barents Sea and Svalbard and create synergetic activities to optimize the scientific outcome of each single project.
The workshop will also enable to identify gaps in knowledge and potential for joint proposal/activities for the future.
When this will take place will be decided soon enough! Looking forward to that!
