The goal of the Useful Arctic Knowledge: partnership for research and education (UAK) project is to develop long-term collaboration between Norway, Canada and USA to improve multidisciplinarity in Arctic research and education. The project is focused on selected topics of importance to local communities and operators in the Arctic, namely the nature of natural and human-made hazards and ocean acoustic environment, all of which can have significant negative impact.

UAK addresses the following topics:

  • Cross-disciplinary data management and integration
  • Natural and human-made hazards
  • Ocean acoustic environment
  • Community based monitoring
  • Communication between academic research groups and local communities

People

UAK includes partners and personnel from Norway, USA and Canada, and brings together leading researchers, educators and young scientists working on Arctic science topics.
