The International Barents Secretariat (IBS) completed a communication project in order to strengthen the communication and cooperation among the BEAC working groups.
A recent survey by the IBS, based on feedback from 70 working group members, shed light on the opportunity for further strengthening communication, cooperation and participation in the BEAC working groups.
The project lasted from January - August 2016 and it was run by the IBS, in cooperation with Northern Arctic Federal University, Syktyvkar State University, University of Lapland and Kainuu Regional Council and was supported by the Norwegian Barents Secretariat.
The final report can be viewed here.
