Welcome to a morning filled with presentations of contemporary Arctic research projects!
Arctic researchers at Umeå University were very successful when the research council FORMAS announced the projects that were funded for 2021-2024. They represent various disciplines and research areas which is a perfect illustration of the multifaceted arctic research.
You are invited to join Arcum in an online sympoisium where science of high quality and society relevance is presented, including biofuel and marine transportation, climate change and aquatic ecosystems, indigenous communities under external pressure, systems for movement of human remains, improved energy systems for second, and the use of drones and artificial intelligence in studies of the carbon dynamics pressure. The symposium offers an insight into the forefront of contemporary arctic research.
