Continuation of the SIOS collaboration

The Ministry of Education and Research informed that the task of organizing and funding the interim project will be given to the Research Council of Norway. The project will start early 2015 and run until SIOS can be formally established, i.e. for a period of 2 to maximum 3 years. The project will be run by a Set Up Team in Longyearbyen, led by the University Centre (UNIS) and the Norwegian Polar Institute (NP), with active involvement by the central, international partner institutions contributing on the basis of Letters of Commitment (LOCs).

All partner institutions are expected to contribute with access to their relevant permanent and campaign based infrastructure, in order to organise integration of the observing system in a practical and feasible manner. 9 international partner institutions have committed to continue the SIOS collaboration and will contribute to the implementation of the SIOS Knowledge Centre in the interim project.
