First cruise and experimental work of the EU FP 7 project Arctic Tipping Points
One of the great successes of ARCTOS in 2009 was the accept of the Arctic Tipping Point (ATP) project, a 5 million € project that runs for 3 years and has 13 partners from 11 countries: Norway (Coordinator), Denmark, France, Germany, Greenland, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden and UK.
The ATP application was written by ARCTOS member Paul Wassmann and Carlos Duarte (CISIC, Spain) with the support of ARCTOS secretary Elisabeth Halvorsen (at that time). The ATP project leadership team is located at Hyperboreum where the ARCTOS PhD school is situated.
