What is The EFIRA blog?

The EFIRA blog is an expanding database of Arctic publications, articles, and other materials with a searching mechanism.

What is a Project section?

People, whose work is related to Arctic, know that information about different project is dessemenated, and it is quite difficult to search for them. Because of that a lot of interesting projects don`t have enough specialists, because people haven`t  known about them in a good time.
EFIRA`s solution is to build a decentralized mechanism of arctic project database filling. Every expert can add information about projects, grants, vacancies, jobs that he or she knows. Also you have a unique opportunity to promote your own project with  EFIRA`s help.

Calendar of Arctic events

Another challenge is to follow the information about Arctic meetings, conferences. EFIRA`s paradigm is to accumulate as much information about interesting Arctic events in one place as possible.
Also you can form up your own callendar for everyday use.
