Project Spotlight

Arctic Design Initiative

The Arctic Design Initiative will be the first of its kind in the U.S. and one of only a handful of efforts worldwide to create a multidisciplinary platform focused on arctic research that combines design with research in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities to proactively develop strategies and proposals for the future of this northern territory. Included will be: 1) Student Research Assistantships for undergraduate and graduate students, and 2) an Arctic Design Symposium at U.Va in Spring 2015 that will bring together experts on the arctic from UVA, the U.S., and around the globe.
