Frederik Paulsen Arctic Academic Action Award 2023 nominations call

On behalf of UArctic and the Arctic Circle, we would like to remind about the opportunity to submit nominations for the 2023 Frederik Paulsen Arctic Academic Action Award.
The call closes on April 30.

The goal is to further the development of new ideas that could contribute materially to preventing, mitigating, adapting, and reversing the effects of climate change in the Arctic. The Award comes with a 100,000 euro unrestricted grant to help facilitate the development of ideas and increase impact through outreach, engagement and communication.

We are looking for creative ideas that are

·         Action- and results-oriented and at an early stage of development

·         Grounded in academic research and scholarship

·         Where appropriate, giving due regard to the knowledge practices of Arctic residents, including Indigenous peoples

·         Addressing the causes or impacts of climate change on the Arctic region

·         Broad in scope, or geared toward local issues but could have results scalable to the entire Arctic region and potentially beyond


The call for nominations is inclusive and open to all. Nominations can come from individuals or small groups, including community groups and organizations. Both self-nominations and nominations from others on behalf of the idea are accepted. In addition to established experts, emerging and mid-career professionals are encouraged to apply with ideas. The deadline for nominations is April 30.

For the full call and more information about the Award, visit The winner will be announced at the Arctic Circle Assembly in October in Reykjavík, Iceland.

Please spread the word about the Award among your networks!
