The APECS Nordic Project aimed to facilitate cooperation, coordination and synergy between APECS national branches, indigenous and non-indigenous early career researchers in general as well as indigenous and non-indigenous Northern community members on a regional level within Nordic countries including Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Russia. Fostering networks amongst Nordic researchers in the scientific community and with northern communities can help future collaborations in polar research and facilitate addressing complex challenges posed across the Nordic region.
The APECS Nordic Project worked towards the development of a Nordic network through the development of a Nordic Network Database hosted on the APECS website. Here, Indigenous peoples, non-indigenous Nordic community members as well as indigenous and non-indigenous early career researchers were able to add their contact information, research interests, research projects, region, and other information. You can view the archived database here.
