Date: 13 December 2021, 10:00 MSK – 16:00 JST

Description: The Arctic environment and its population experience tremendous rapid changes at times of the climate change. International cooperation in research and education plays the important role in the process of understanding such changes which to the full extent is reflected in the Arctic Council’s Agreement on Enhancing International Arctic Scientific Cooperation. Arctic stakeholders including scientists and educators are called for the active actions to enlarge the understating and knowledge about the Arctic.
This webinar is aimed at highlighting ongoing activities of the long existing bilateral Russia-Japan scientific and educational cooperation which reflects the high level of Arctic competence and collaborative environment among researchers of two countries. During this webinar we will discuss the actual research collaborations, activities and projects that exist between Japanese and Russian researchers in relation to the Arctic environment. The speakers will present their research work and will discuss the potential ideas for future collaborations.
