Workshop for collaborative research between AWI and SPI

1st March 2024 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In the context of their recently signed MoU, the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) and the Swiss Polar Institute (SPI) are organising an online workshop event on 1 March from 14:00 to 17:00.

The workshop intends to built on existing synergies and foster new collaboration between AWI and Swiss-based scientists working in both Antarctic and Arctic regions. Additionally, we hope to discuss collaboration with regards to future large-scale projects in Antarctica, such as Antarctica InSync or Rings.

All scientists with an interest in polar regions are invited to participate in the event and we particularly invite ECR and researchers with no existing collaborations with AWI based researchers.

The preliminary agenda for the event is:

  1. Introduction / Tour de Table
  2. Overview AWI research programme + SPI funding / projects (strategic level)
  3. Results and future plans of existing or planned collaborations (8-10 min per collaboration, 5 slides)
  4. Discussion session on opportunities for future collaboration in Antarctica, e.g. Antarctica InSync, Rings, bilateral projects
  5. Next steps and conclusions

You can register for the event here and please do not hesitate to contact us () if you have any questions or suggestions for additional agenda items.
