The two-day workshop addressed how environmental assessment is required from regulations, funding agencies and the scientific communities working in the Arctic. The workshop was organized with support from the UAK project (Research Council of Norway under the INTPART programme), the H2020 CAPARDUS project and the Horizon Europe project HiAOOS (High Arctic Ocean Observation System). The workshop had about 25 participants with presentations by Norwegian governmental institutions, universities and research institutes working in the Arctic. Kathleen Vigness Raposa from INSPIRE Environmental, with many years experience in environmental assessment of ocean research, gave an introduction to how to prepare for the assessments. The workshop also addressed legal, ethical and safety aspects of Arctic field research.
