CLINF-RII Kick-off workshop

When: 27 May 2019 at 2:00pm - 29 May 2019 at 1:00pm

Where: University of Moscow, Moscow, Russia

Start for extensive collaboration between CLINF researchers and Russian Arctic scientists.

Last year CLINF secured additional NordForsk-funding for continued cooperation with Russia during 2019 and 2020 (short: CLINF-RII). The main goal is to establish infrastructures and information flows relevant to political and administrative decisions concerning the societal effects of climate sensitive infections (CSIs). In connection with this basic but important goal, the CLINF-RII cooperation pursues two additional objectives, i) to complement the CSI database with data from trans-Ural Russia, and ii) to foster the establishment of a CSI stakeholder network across the entire CLINF study region, from Nuuk to Yakutsk.

At the Kick-off workshop participants will

  • analyse the compatibility of CSI management structures across the CLINF study region;
  • draft recommendations for including CSI monitoring into ongoing environmental survey programmes carried out by INTERACT field stations;
  • explore possibilities to collect more detailed CSI data from Russia than previously possible.

The workshop is by invitation only. The picture shows the participants in front of the main building of the University of Moscow.
