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
