The overall objective is to build an efficient integrated Arctic Observation System (iAOS) by extending, improving and unifying existing systems in the different regions of the Arctic.

Specific objectives:

Overall concept:

The objectives will be achieved by mobilizing and increasing cooperation between entities operating existing European and international observing systems and infrastructures (in-situ and space-based). INTAROS is implemented through a set of multidisciplinary work packages covering the main spheres of the Arctic environment.  In this process, the relevant stakeholder groups are engaged, including the climate and forecasting modelling groups, environmental agencies, industry, decision makers and local communities.
