Nomadic Clinic and Algae Farming: Options for Development of the Arctic
February 15, 2017 13:15


Students from Tyumen, Omsk, Voronezh, Moscow and Syktyvkar presented their projects on developing the Arctic Region. Ten young scientists - students of Russian universities - participated in the 2nd International Arctic Forum, which took place in the Norwegian city of Tromso. The international groups of students were able to translate their ideas into tangible projects aimed at conversion of potential resources, social development and support of Arctic ecosystems. TASS correspondent talked to several participants of the forum, who presented their projects to an expert jury. Nomadic Doctors The social aspect is one of the key components in the development of the Arctic territories, so students actively study this area and put forward new suggestions. One of them is a project called Nomedic. The name is a combination of the words "nomad" and "medic". Thus, it implies establishing "an itinerant clinic". Yulia Pavlova rom the Moscow State Institute of International Relations was a Russin representtive of the team with this project. She noted that the project involves the creation of a team of doctors and volunteers, who will deliver medicines and equipment to indigenous peoples living in remote areas, provide medical assistance and teach methods of care. "We dwell upon the fact that the quality of life of indigenous peoples in remote areas is much lower now than that o population in central parts of the Nordic countries. In the long term it would be great to create a mobile clinic that will travel the paths following reindeer herders," - Yulia Pavlova explained. Algae Farms Another topic tackled upon by young researchers was the farming of bioproducts. A team of scientists has developed a project to build a algae processing plant for making medicines and cosmetics in the Arkhangelsk Region o Russia. Anton Zhigunov, a student o the Omsk State University noted that non-waste tehnology of healthy organic bioproducts is one of the most promising paths in development of the Arctic Region. "On the one hand, it will create a new production system in the region, and on the other hand it will provide jobs for local population. In addition, the project will draw a new technological brand. This is an optimal opportunity for implementing an environmental business project. Algae is a renewable resource and its production will help reduce the negative impact on the ecological balance of the Arctic. With scaling up the production volumes it will be possible to build the so-called "algae farms" - Mr. Zhigunov pointed out.
