The Nansen Legacy is a large and complex research project. The project management group therefore embraces people with expertise from different fields of science, data management, technology, logistics, and communication. Together this group ensures that the project meets its ambitious goals.

The project is organized as four Research Foci and four cross-cutting Research Activities, each lead by two scientists from different disciplines and institutions to facilitate interdisciplinarity.
