CLINF and INTERACT cooperation now formalized


Memorandum of Understanding signed on 1 July.

CLINF and the INTERACT pan-arctic network of 88 terrestrial field stations have agreed to promote knowledge exchange and to create synergies in Arctic research between their respective partners and facilities. The cooperation will take the form of data sharing, joint field projects, training initiatives and publications; partners of one project will be invited to meetings of the other. The first steps will be opening the CLINF GIS database for INTERACT members and planning a red alert monitoring system for environmental factors that indicate emerging climate sensitive infectious diseases.
