The structure and functioning of northern ecosystems remain poorly understood. However, the rapid emergence of new technologies and powerful computational analysis methods offers an unprecedented opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of the functioning of Arctic biodiversity and to model the complexity of these ecosystems.
You have ideas for funding competitions or new initiatives to encourage knowledge mobilization? Share them and win a $500 prize if your idea is selected. The Ideas Challenge aims to generate to new initiatives that could be implemented by the Sentinel North administrative center to highlight the efforts and/or encourage new concrete actions in terms knowledge mobilization from its research teams.
In the face of climate change, the need to develop and maintain reliable and safe infrastructures for northern communities and natural resources in the northern regions of Quebec and Canada requires a high level of expertise in northern engineering. The new Sentinel North Partnership Research Chair on Northern Infrastructure will promote, through the development of technological tools, the sustainable development of infrastructure adapted to northern conditions and resilient to climate change.
Several Sentinel North teams have traveled to the North over the past few months to carry on with their research activities, meet with their northern partners, collect valuable data or deploy technologies on-site.
Below are a few selected examples of the fieldwork being conducted by Sentinel North researchers and students as part of a successful 2022 fieldwork season.
After more than two years apart, we are thrilled to invite you to the Quebec City Convention Centre from October 25-27 for the 2022 Sentinel North Scientific Meeting, an occasion to establish new collaborations and share research advances.
Université Laval's research community and its partners are encouraged to submit abstracts for the 2022 Sentinel North Scientific Meeting. Any work relating to a better understanding of the changing northern environment and its impact on humans is welcome.
