EGU 2020 Special Session: Where human and natural systems meet


INTAROS is delighted to announce that it will host a special session during the he next EGU General Assembly in Vienna: EOS 4.1 “Where human and natural systems meet: promoting innovative tools for Arctic outreach and education”.


The session intends to bring together experienced and early career scientists for an interdisciplinary discussion that will involve natural and social scientists. The aim of the event is to fill the gap between the broad scientific community and local Arctic communities that have experienced rapid and unpredictable changes of their environment.


Several scientific projects in the Arctic have proven the valuable input of indigenous knowledge systems, and the latter should be fully involved in and recognized by the scientific community. Outreach and education activities about permafrost and arctic landscapes have also greatly benefited from a cross-disciplinary, holistic vision.


Abstracts related to outreach and education activities in Arctic Regions are welcomed.
Two travel grants (1,000 euro each) are available for early career researchers (max 5 years after the PhD) and students that contribute to the session.

Deadline for abstract submission is 15 January 2020, 13:00 CET.

Conference dates: 3 -8 May 2020, Vienna, Austria.

Session Co-conveners: Terenzio Zenone Frederic Bouchard, Stein Sandven, Ylva Sjöberg, Donatella Zona.
