UiT The Arctic University of Norway
Education of a new generation of Arctic scientists is a major goal of the Nansen Legacy. That is why the project employs 23 PhD students in the field of Arctic paleoclimatology, oceanography, marine ecology, ecosystem modelling, climate modelling and development of enabling marine research technology. These young researchers were recruited from inside and outside Scandinavia, and are working at all the large universities in Norway. Over half of the PhD students in the project are women.
