The rapid changes occurring in Polar Regions are significantly influencing global climate. European polar research has contributed critical knowledge to identifying the processes behind these changes but datasets from Polar Regions are insufficient to fully understand and more effectively predict the effects of change on our climate and society. The objectives of EU-PolarNet are to establish an ongoing dialogue between stakeholders, identifying ways of working that will deliver economic and societal benefits. The results of this dialogue will be brought together in a plan for an Integrated European Research Programme that will be co-designed and coordinated with the activities of many other polar research nations beyond Europe, including Canada and the United States.
