Layman's description

Funded under: H2020-EU.3.5.1.
Overall budget: € 6 753 205
Managing the consequences of a warmer Arctic on the cryosphere, biodiversity and societies is a major challenge, requiring knowledge about how the social-ecological system operates currently and how it may operate in the future. FACE-IT will provide the first large-scale systematic comparison of coastal areas under variable degrees of cryosphere loss aiming for a holistic understanding of the consequences for Arctic marine biodiversity and Arctic societies.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research
and innovation programme under grant agreement No 869154
