“Our Italian partners have the “Dirigibile Italia” Arctic station in Svalbard. Therefore, the exchange of scientists will allow us to conduct comparative studies from two polar regions. At the same time, work at different Antarctic stations will allow expanding the boundaries of our presence in the region and monitoring space processes from different perspectives," Dykyi explained.
As noted, the document provides for the submission of joint projects within Horizon 2020 and EU-PolarNet scientific programmes. It is also planned to conduct ocean researches and to develop jointly the metagenomic techniques for the study of polar ecosystems.
