Opportunities for Swedish polar research

Polar research has become increasingly important in understanding the effects of climate change and how society must adapt. Last year, the government decided to establish several long-term research programmes to address societal challenges, including one for climate research. How can Swedish polar research take part of this research programme and other initiatives? Does Swedish polar research need specific initiatives to respond to the societal challenges?
