A competence building project coordinated by the University of Bergen will investigate if deep-sea mining on the Arctic Mid-Ocean Ridge can take place sustainably, avoiding serious harm to the environment. The project will run for three years with a total budget of approximately 18 million NOK, where more than 13 million are granted by the Research Council of Norway.
Members of the Center have been onboard the Kronprins Håkon for an expedition to the Aurora vent field under the arctic ice.
