A total of 36 people has applied to become Arctic Five Fellows. The aim of the programme is to strengthen cooperation in research and education on Arctic issues between the partner universities.
Now follows an internal evaluation of the applicants at each partner university. The granted publications will be published on the Arctic Five webpage on 12 May. The nominated fellows will be inaugurated on 1 September in conjunction with an Arctic Five symposium at Luleå University of Technology.
The call for Arctic Five Fellows is a new format for collaboration within the organisation aimed at early career scholars at the Arctic Five universities, i.e., PhD students and post-docs, with the will and capacity to build alliances that develop cooperation in research and education.
The overarching aim of the initiative is to improve the success of the Arctic Five universities in securing external funding and in this way, help meet our goal in finding research-based solution to joint problems facing our northern societies. Each nominated fellow is expected to participate and contribute to an international academic conference as well as an Arctic Five Chairs and Fellows event during the Fellow period.
“This will be a great opportunity for early career scholars at the Arctic Five Universities to build networks and project collaborations. This will benefit their careers as well as the Arctic Five, as future leaders in research and education”, says Dag Avango, Director of The Arctic Five.
