Today was the start of the Chairs conference at Luleå university of technology. Twelve chairs gathered online or onsite to share the progress of their projects. We learned how far they reached since they presented the preliminary plans six months ago, their success stories, and future plans.
The Charis initiative aimed to stimulate cross-institutional and cross-disciplinary research, and it have definitely brought many researchers together from the five universities. We learned about workshops, publications, collaborations, and research grants, that this initiative made possible.
The Journal of Northern studies and the future Arctic Five Fellows call is on the agenda for day two of this inspiring Arctic research conference. Read more about our chairs and their projects below.
