The new MOU recognizes that there are many common interests between IASSA, UArctic and IASC in international and multi-disciplinary cooperation in Arctic research, education and outreach.

In pursuit of these, they collaborate in arranging workshops, conferences, and reports on topics of mutual scientific interest, by encouraging the development of integrated plans for scientific research, by communicating to the public, by entering research partnerships with Arctic residents, by supporting the training and education of students and early career researchers, by providing advice to policy makers, and by addressing the Arctic Council together.

MOU was signed by Peter Sköld, IASSA President, Susan Barr, IASC President and Lars Kullerud, UArctic President
