It is with a heavy heart that the Academy Board has decided to cancel the NVP International Summer School 2021 and postpone to summer 2022.

After cancelling the 2020 International Summer School due to Covid-19, the Academy planned to arrange a physical International Summer School on Svalbard during the autumn/winter of 2021. For a long time we hoped to be able to arrange the 2021 Summer School, but unfortunately, we must cancel due to implications of Covid-19.

All students accepted to the 2020 and 2021 summer schools, will be offered to attend the 2022 Summer School that will be arranged in Longyearbyen, Svalbard. In late 2021 or early 2022 we will contact all students regarding dates for the 2022 Summer School. The 2022 Summer School will most likely be arranged in June 2022.

The Board of directors and the organizing committee have decided to keep the program and structure of the three years’ project «The Global Arctic». This means that the program will be the same, with minor changes, and moves forward in time for 2022‐2024.

Whether the Academy will open for new applications for the 2022 Summer School has not been decided. More information will follow in early 2022.

The Board of Directors and the organizing committee are sincerely sorry that we yet again are in a position where we must postpone the International Summer School due to the Covid-19 situation.
