Svalbard Integrated Arctic Earth Observing System - Infrastructure development of the Norwegian node (SIOS-InfraNor)

SIOS-InfraNor is the first major investment in research infrastructure coordinated by SIOS Knowledge Centre (SIOS-KC). It includes a diverse range of 41 items, from new instruments to remote sensing products. The infrastructure funded through SIOS-InfraNor will be integrated into the observational network of SIOS and will benefit all SIOS members.

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

Summary

SIOS-InfraNor is the first major investment in research infrastructure coordinated by SIOS Knowledge Centre (SIOS-KC). SIOS-InfraNor funds a diverse range of 41 items, from new instruments to remote sensing products. The infrastructure funded through SIOS-InfraNor will be integrated into the observational network of SIOS and will benefit the entire SIOS community. Data from all the items funded through the project will be made available to all SIOS members and other users via the SIOS data portal. Some of the infrastructure is already available to researchers via the SIOS Access Programme, and more will be made available over the course of the project period. The decisions on which infrastructure to fund through SIOS-InfraNor was based prioritisations of which research infrastructure was most important to strengthen the observing system. The science optimisation processes that are coordinated by SIOS-KC ensures a continuous re-evaluation of the most urgent research needs and allows SIOS members to make joint strategic decisions on what research infrastructure investments should be prioritised. Thus SIOS is in a position to take advantage of future national and international funding opportunities. The total funding for the SIOS-InfraNor from the Research Council of Norway (RCN) is 94.27 million NOK. In addition the Norwegian Space Centre (NSC) is financing the project with a further 13 million NOK earmarked for space related activities (see appendix 2 for details). Although the focus of SIOS is on interdisciplinary research, SIOS-InfraNor has been divided into thematic topics (modules 1 to 6) for the purposes of project management. Each module is led by a representative from one of the SIOS member institutions with expertise in the topic of the module. Module 6, project management, is led by the SIOS director with support from SIOS-KC. The module leaders have a role in ensuring the integration of the items funded through the SIOS-InfraNor project into SIOS as a whole.
