Arctic floating university
“The Arctic floating university” is an innovative educational project designed to help young scientists - explorers of the Arctic receive knowledge and skills in real life conditions of the northern seas.
Research vessel “Professor Molchanov”, the only vessel in Europe that combines unique research laboratory and practical basis for preparation of specialist-scientists, becomes the floating university for the duration of the project.
The project has been put into practice by joint efforts of the M.V. Lomonosov Northern (Arctic) Federal University (NArFU), Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring of Russia (Roshydromet) and Arkhangelsk branch of the Russian Geographical Society.
Expeditions of the Arctic Floating University are held annually since 2012.
