335 SIOS Innovation Award 2021

The SIOS Innovation Award has launched this month. The award will be granted to the best submitted proposal for an innovation in support of Earth System Science monitoring and research applicable in Svalbard and surrounding waters.

In order to encourage Early Career Researchers (ECRs) to apply for this award we are also launching a mentoring scheme, in which an ECR can request to be matched with an experienced researcher in the SIOS community to help them develop their proposal and support their project.

Does this sound interesting? Then do not hesitate, but go to to find out more! The deadline to apply for the mentoring scheme is 30 June 2021.
