The Norwegian Space Centre (NSC) and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) invites to the side event “Workshop on satellite data for Arctic research and applications”. The side event will take place on Wednesday January 27 at 14:00 to 18:00.
The bilateral cooperation between JAXA and NSC has been going on for many years. In 2010, an overall agreement that embraces all space science areas was signed between Norway and Japan.
The Arctic is in particular emphasized as an important and relevant area for cooperation and it is of mutual understanding that the use of space infrastructure is important for polar research. Norway and Japan share many of the same interests in the Arctic. This applies to general and dedicated satellites, using research rockets for studies of the upper polar atmosphere and utilization of ground infrastructure in combination with satellites and rockets for understanding how the Earth is affected by the sun.
The side event will focus on how Norway uses Japanese satellite data today, the status of current cooperation between Norway and Japan and new opportunities for cooperation.
The workshop is open to all participants at the Arctic Frontier conference, but for planning we ask for feedback on whether you plan to participate, preferable before 15th of January.
Free for conference delegates, 700 NOK for non-delegates. Please register through the Arctic Frontiers registration form.
We hope it will be interesting for you to attend this event, and we also hope you will take the opportunity to establish contacts, both nationally and internationally.
