1. 3…2…1… Arctic Competition – due date is approaching!
It’s a last minute call for those who would like to experience a life-time northern adventure this summer. Till 19th January 12:00 UTC SUMMARY of research or innovative project related to the Arctic needs to be submitted. You will receive 50 EDU-POINTS for submitting one or more summaries. If your students are fascinated by disciplines such as science, technology, engineering and mathematics, it’s high time to encourage them to take another step for their future scientific career!
Read more information about rules of 2nd edition of Arctic Competition.
Remember, in the first stage of the Competition, you submit only summary, not the whole project. If you want to find out, how to prepare good summary, READ OUR SUGGESTIONS.
Are you looking for inspiration? Read more about winners of 1st edition. Meet Angelica, Jan, Łukasz, Julia, Vassiliki, Aleksandra and learn all about their projects.
Are you wondering what can be measured on a polar station? Would you like to have a look inside the stations and find out what kind of research is conducted there?
Enrol for online lessons from Svalbard (Inside Polish Polar Station) and Svanhovd (Research station Svanhovd: living and doing research in the far north)

4. EDU-ARCTIC as a good practice: meeting in Brussels
This January, a very special event takes place. EDU-ARCTIC project has been invited to Brussels for a matchmaking event Science with and for Society Programme beyond H2020, as one of 2 good practice examples among many SWAFS projects.
