Over the last few months, the project has been active in gathering information for a catalogue of national Polar programmes and European Polar Research funding programmes.

Furthermore, EU-PolarNet 2 has opened its first Call for Services, searching for support from the scientific community in defining applicable research activities. These services will be an important piece of our research prioritisation process. The other important piece is our newly formed Polar Expert Group and we are very pleased that so many excellent experts volunteered to become a member of this group. A big thank you to all these helpful colleagues.
