INTERNATIONAL ORGANISATIONS

The CNR is present in various international coordination and scientific planning organizations in the Arctic and Antarctica. These include the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), the European Polar Board (EPB), the Forum of Arctic Research Operators (FARO), the Ny-Ålesund Scientific Managers Committee (NySMAC) and the Sustaining Arctic Observing Networks (SAON).

Furthermore, thanks to signed treaties or political agreements, the CNR actively supports the presence of our country, with its experts, in scientific organizations, committees and working groups. CNR researchers participate to the Working and Expert Groups of the Arctic Council (AC). With regards to Antarctica, the CNR takes an active part in the various permanent committees of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR).

ISP is strongly committed to guaranteeing the participation of the CNR in the SIOS (Svalbard Integrated Arctic Earth Observing System) initiative whose purpose is to integrate, optimize and coordinate resources and research in the Svalbard archipelago at an international level.

In this context, the Institute of Polar Sciences (ISP) supports the CNR’s representation on international bodies with the presence of:
