The five French Institutes in the Nordic region have decided to launch in 2020 an award to promote scientific cooperation between France and the Nordic countries: FINA
Four laureates, one in each country, have been selected for their multidisciplinary approaches to nature and biodiversity conservation, and will go to Marseille to attend the IUCN Congress.
In the meantime and in anticipation of the Congress, the French Institutes wanted you to get accounted with these four young researchers. Therefore a series of 4 podcasts was recorded and will be available on Franskapodden in the next two weeks.
A webinar conference will take place to give you the opportunity to meet the laureates and ask them all the questions you have about their work.
Helena Tukiainen from Finland, Justine Ramage from Sweden, Julie Strand from Denmark, and Annabel Mempel from Norway will discuss the dynamics of geodiversity and biodiversity, the impact of climate change on the landscapes and the people, the safeguard of genetics, and the connections between nature conservation and international cooperation.
