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 is home to 36 PhD students in the fields 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.
