Horizon2020 Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions Innovative Training Network (MSCA-ITN) “Microorganisms in Warming Arctic Environments – MicroArctic”

The Arctic plays a key role in the Earth’s climate system and is an area of growing strategic importance for European policy. The MicroArctic network trains the next generation of experts in microbiology and biogeochemistry to provide them with a comprehensive understanding of Arctic ecosystems and organisms, and to acquaint them with the factors having an impact on Arctic ecosystems. Moreover, MicroArctic aims to significantly advance our understanding of changes and adaptation in Arctic microbial communities and their links to weathering and biogeochemical element and nutrient cycling in fast warming Arctic settings.

Robin Wojcik, MicroArctic PhD student from our research group, works on "Weathering and its role in carbon and nutrient cycling in Arctic settings".
