In a context of accelerating climate change and social and economic development in the arctic and subarctic regions, Sentinel North will provide knowledge to monitor and prepare for changes in northern environments at scales ranging from microbiota to entire ecosystems and using the best technology and intervention strategies in the pursuit of sustainable health and development. (see conceptual framework).
This ambitious transdisciplinary research program is articulated within three large thematic research projects in which technological innovation, particularly in optics and photonics, will take place. Thematic projects are divided into 21 sub-projects (read the summary of all sub-projects - .pdf, 592 Ko).
Sentinel North also deploys several research support programs and chairs, listed below.
