50 years Arctic Centre University of Groningen
19 January 2020
Today it is the 50th anniversary of the
Arctic Centre of the University of Groningen. We are very proud on our accomplishments:
the Smeerenburg expeditions led by Louwrens Hacquebord, the
SEES expeditions to Edgeøya,
our contributions to the working groups of the Arctic Council CAFF, SDWG and AMAP and the
Netherlands Arctic Station in Ny-Ålesund. We have played a major role in bringing all Dutch polar scientists together in the
Willem Barentsz Polar Network and facilitate
national and international cooperation in the Arctic.
We are proud on
our educational programme and thank all students who participated.
The Arctic Centre is a truly multidisciplinary working group and we particpate in outreach to the general public, Dutch companies, ministeries and our research council. It belongs to the Faculty of Arts and the Groningen Institute of Archaeology(GIA), which now celebrates its centennial.
Our central theme is the Sustainability of the Arctic Antropocene
And we re-publish the booklet, which described the first 35 years of the Arctic Centre called: The top of the Iceberg
This booklet is in Dutch but can easily be downloaded and imported in translate.google.com
