Training Course on Arctic Development Prepared by Russian and German Scientists
April 29, 2017 15:52

The English-language course will tell students about the current state policy in the Arctic, as well as legal acts regulating activities in the North.

  Scientists of the Tyumen State University jointly with colleagues from the Osnabruck University of Applied Sciences and the Münster University (Germany) have devised a training course on sustainable development of the Arctic regions. The project has already been submitted to the Association of Arctic Universities, the press service of the Tyumen State University reports.

 "The urgency of the new course is obvious - the Arctic territories are significant not only for Russia, but on a global scale as well, since they can ensure sustainable development of the planet as a whole.

Training of specialists engaged in activities in the northern territories should embrace the existing state policy in the Arctic, legal acts regulating activities in the North, as well as trends and features of the development of land, environmental and natural resources legislation, since it contains a legal framework for every northern project,”- it says.

 The press service adds that it is necessary to train the future generation of specialists and create new legal norms for more efficient regulation of land utilization in the Arctic.

 "The experience of Germany in teaching and applying sustainable development models is described in the training course and can provide the foundation for the development of planning tools in the Russian Arctic regions. Since the course is in the English language, it will be in demand not only among Russian students, but foreign students as well. The course is presented in the Association of Arctic Universities, which the Tyumen State University is a member of," - they explained.

 It was previously reported that the Tyumen State University employees are also working on a training course for monitoring the condition of frozen soils, which will be further introduced into the University’s master programs. It will introduce students to the basics of using instruments for measuring the properties of permafrost and seasonally frozen soils in laboratory and field conditions. It focuses on solving urgent industrial challenges in the field of engineering geocryology.

 In addition, the world's first Cryology and Cryosophy Institute will be founded at the Tyumen State University. The new scientific unit will implement projects for the development of Arctic territories. The decision of its establishment has resulted in developing new directions and activities of the university, which regularly organizes expeditions to the Khanty-Mansi and Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Districts.
