Arctic research funded by the European Union
The European Union has supported polar research through a large number of collaborative projects, coordination activities, and support to infrastructures. Under the seventh framework programme for research and technological development (FP7, 2007-13) about 200 Mio euro were spent on research related to the Arctic. This brochure highlights the ongoing activities supported by the environment (including climate change) and the infrastructure programmes of FP7. The research adds to a number of already completed projects funded by FP7 which address all relevant aspects of Arctic environmental... change like ocean and climate, sea ice, tipping points, glaciers, permafrost, marine and terrestrial ecosystems as well as the effects of Arctic change on humans including direct impacts on health, the economy and global sea level rise.
