NERC Arctic Research Station Access Scheme 2022-23 (deadline 31st Oct)

The Natural Environment Research Council have made available up to £20,000 in financial year 2022-23 to support access to the NERC Arctic Research Station in Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard. The Scheme is designed to support the access, travel, logistics, subsistence and accommodation and other related costs incurred by teams using this NERC facility.


The funding is available for the 2022-23 financial year. This means that all eligible costs must be incurred before 31 March 2023. It is possible to apply to use this Access Scheme to work at the NERC Arctic Research Station at any time before the end of March 2023. It may still be possible to support work in autumn 2022 but you should contact the Station Manager, Iain Rudkin ([email protected]) urgently if you are interested in this opportunity.

Applications should be submitted to [email protected] by 1600 on 31 October 2022. All applications will receive email confirmation of receipt. If you are submitting an application that involves working at the Station in autumn 2022 you should apply by 15 August 2022 and contact the Station Manager prior to submission. Wherever possible we will strive to balance fair access across the eligible period.
