Development of Collaborative Academic & Research Program to Study Ice Accretion on Structures in Cold Regions

CoARIce project focuses on icing related academic/research activities by developing an international consortium of experts from different international educational institutes around the globe, with an aim to improve knowledge about icing on structures and educate people about ice accretion physics and to develop new technologies for combating ice. The project cover both education and research perspectives and will focus to improve the educational and research activities in Norway on icing related issues by establishing a long-term academic and research partnership between 08 partner educational institutes from Norway, China, Canada, Russia & Japan. Currently, no organized icing related academic program and research infrastructure exists in Norway. This project will help the Norwegian academic institutes to strengthen academic activities, infrastructure and international collaboration on icing related topics.

The project is managed and coordinated by Professor Muhammad Virk (arcICE/UiT)
