Arctic About UiT

The international Mohn Prize for outstanding research related to the Arctic has been established in collaboration between Academia Borealis, Northern Norway's Academy of Sciences, the Tromsø Research Foundation, and UiT the Arctic University of Norway. The prize, which is NOK 2 million, is awarded every other year.

The purpose of the Mohn Prize is to recognize outstanding research related to the Arctic. The award will also help highlight issues that are central to the further development of the Arctic on the national and international agenda.

The prize borrows its name from Henrik Mohn, who in addition to being considered the founder of Norwegian meteorology, provided a number of polar expeditions (among them Nansen's Fram expedition) with meteorological equipment. Henrik Mohn was also the first director of the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, and he was the great-uncle of Trond Mohn's father. In addition to rewarding outstanding Arctic research, the award marks the significant contribution Trond Mohn has made to research and research-promoting measures at UiT.

The deadline for nominations is 31 July 2021. Here you will find more information about the nomination process and requirements.
