Welcome to The Scientific Academy for Polar Research
The world’s only scientific academy that concentrates on the polar regions and related challenges within all scientific disciplines and in an international perspective. The academy is located in Longyearbyen, Svalbard, on 78° north and welcomes distinguished researchers from all over the world as members.
The Governor of Svalbard and the Ministry of Environment has since 2010 worked on a new management plan for East Svalbard. The Change proposals have received a lot of
attention, and NVP has now submitted its consultative letter.
Read our comments on the plan here, unfortunately only in Norwegian. Please contact the secretariat for a translation.
