INTERACT Station Managers' Forum

Field observation, North-East Greenland.

The INTERACT Station Managers' Forum provides a platform for exchange of information between research station managers and between managers and other partners and stakeholders.

The Station Managers' Forum will facilitate knowledge exchange, and collect and disseminate information from participating research infrastructures related to ecosystem monitoring, station management and administration.

The Station Managers' Forum meetings are open to external partners (non-consortium members) and will be used to provide information from the different Infrastructures to the Network and associated partners, local communities and other interested users.

Station Managers' Forum meetings will be held twice a year at a consortium partner institution or field station.

INTERACT Station Catalogue

The Station Managers' Forum has produced a catalogue of field stations in the network (see catalogue). This includepartner stations and observer station (stations that have joined after the project wasgranted). Since the catalogue was produced more stations have joined (see a list of all stations here).

INTERACT book on station management practices

The Station Managers' Forum has also produced a report on good practises of station management at arctic and northern alpine research stations. The report describes good management practises for eleven themes based on contributions from the more than 50 stations in the INTERACT network. The report submitted to the EU can be downloaded here. A layouted version will be available soon.
