2) Young Scientist Forum PhD/student workshop

In concert with Arctic Frontiers, the ARCTOS network arranges a student workshop – "BIO-8516 Arctic Frontiers PhD/student workshop" (master students may apply, but PhD students are prioritized). As part of the workshop, students have to participate in the entire conference, political and scientific part and give a presentation (oral or poster). After the conference, they will embark on a 5 day seminar to Lofoten, during which they will prepare a proposal for funding to an imaginary research grant. During the workshop there will be lectures about proposal writing as well cultural events. Travel and conference funding is available for workshop participants.
