Diogo Folhas Ferreira, T-MOSAiC Executive Secretary, is presenting today the T-MOSAiC program at the Arctic Frontiers Meeting in Tromso, Norway. Arctic Frontiers started out in 2006 assembling the first global scientific conference on economic, societal and environmental sustainable growth in the north. The conference has a pan arctic perspective and builds new partnerships across nations, generations and ethnic groups. Arctic Frontiers provides a forum for dialogue and communication between science, government and industry in the Arctic.
João Canário and Warwick Vincent, chairs of T-MOSAiC program, gave today and will give again tomorrow two webinars to INTERACT station managers.
