“NSERC PermafrostNet connects academics and partners for boosting Canada’s ability to adapt to permafrost thaw. As a strategic partnership network, we also work toward better connecting differing perspectives and organizations in the long term. Partnering with ArcticNet helps build on existing strengths and better contribute to an inclusive Arctic research ecosystem.” – Stephan Gruber, NSERC PermafrostNet Scientific Director
“Permafrost research has always been a core research topic for ArcticNet. We are keen to continue working closely with PermafrostNet to advance knowledge on permafrost dynamics on natural and built systems across the North. Together, we aim to leverage assets, train the next generation of Arctic specialists, and expand research opportunities.” – Christine Barnard, ArcticNet Executive Director
