The University of the Arctic (UArctic), the International Arctic Social Sciences Association (IASSA) and IASC have formalized their partnership in a Letter of Agreement (LoA). All three organizations recognize that there are many common interests regarding international and multi-disciplinary cooperation in Arctic research, education and outreach. Increased cooperation between the organizations is expected to be of mutual benefit, and contribute to enhancing the legacies of the IPY. The LoA was signed at a WMO organized workshop on the International Polar Decade (IPD) in St. Petersburg, Russia.
